Episode 006: Plot vs. GM

Major Ron to Nerd Control, 

Today on the NW Nerdcast we are talking about running plot at a Larp vs. running a tabletop game (GMing). We touch on the obvious  and dig into the more subtle differences in these distinct styles of role-play. Lots of fun stories and behind the scenes notes from experienced game runners = infotainment?

THE RETURN OF THE NW NERDCAST

Hello Listenerds,

As some of you may have heard through the grapevine, the NW Nerdcast is coming back! That's right. It's my great pleasure to announce our triumphant return. Ron is coming back with new co-hosts Kirsten Olin, Barb Martin, and Caille Jensen. The other former Nerdcasters were unable to join the crew but we sincerely hope to have them on future episodes as we've all remained good friends. 

You may notice that we are starting fresh with new topics and revisiting some of our favorite topics. To commemorate this, we're starting the show from episode 001. We will always keep up the entire archive of Nerdcast 1 and Nerdcast 1.5 on the page and still recommend checking them out as hours of awesome content is enshrined there. 

We'll be airing episode 001 on August 17th and have a new episode every Wednesday.
