Fringeworthy Episode 1 The adventure Begins

October 20th, 2009

Welcome to the Fringeworthy Podcast.

Fringeworthy is the very first game of interdimensional exploration and adventure and is still the best.  

Currently backed by the d20 Modern system but a Savage Worlds edition will follow soon.

You play randomly selected people in the near future who have the special quality that allows them to use the ancient portal discovered in Antarctica to access a network of interdimensional roadways and platforms rich with portals to other worlds, alternate earths, and wierd spaces.

Administered by the United Nations, you are drawn from every walk of life and given the best in exploration equipment.  You seek allies and technology in the other universes for the betterment of all, but especially to solve the problems on Earth that are rapidly becoming critical.

Each week your hosts, Bruce, John, and Blix will offer their best insights into running successful adventures in the near past, far past, near future, and far future on worlds almost identical to our own to completely alien landscapes.

Each of our hosts has had decades of experience with this game and is eager to make your game experience awesome.
