Episode 3 : Near Future Adventures

November 2nd, 2009

We discuss exploring worlds so similar to our own that it could be a possible future.  In many cases these are worlds that have experience a disaster or catastrophe of some kind like nuclear war, plague, asteroid strike, or zombie apocalypse.

Players love near future worlds since they may have technology that can easily be adopted by Earth Prime.  We discuss how the GM can avoid that wrecking her campaign.
