We finish our holiday podcast discussing what a world would be like if Santa Clause was as he is depicted in 20th century America and had the job of providing toys for all good girls and boys on Christmas.  Assuming that he didn't do everything with magic, it would be a very different world.

This our famous holiday episode.  First we discuss what we would bring to the holiday feast if we had no limits.  This is both an in and out of game discussion.  Everything from T-rex to the dish of the day is game.

Then we hypothesize why there are so many mid winter traditions in our world.  We give examples and background if we have them.  Mid winter festivals and rituals are excellent additions to any rpg campaign (except dark sun, I suppose).

We will conclude next week with a discussion of what the world would be like if Santa was really in charge of giving all the boys and girls their holiday presents.

Happy Holiday for whatever reason you celebrate.  I hope it's the best one.

This week we continue our exploration of taking back Earth Prime if taken over by an outside force.  We move into the middle campaign and sic the mellor on the Fringeworthy. 

This is the first time we've really detailed how to use the mellor to destroy a planet and we were all surprised to find out that in a modern setting, it only takes about a month.  Wow.

Jay Hailey returns as a host.  Welcome back Jay!

Next week is our holiday episode so you will have to wait until the end or just into the new year to find out how to eradicate those pesky homocidal shapechangers.
