Here’s brief feedback on FTB 169. I apologize for the shortness and vagueness of this post. I forgot to take notes on the episode.
It was good. I enjoyed the section on Atomic Robo. That is a good comic.
The running a system for the first time discussion was great. I’ve run into this recently with Savage Worlds and Spirit of the Century. It is difficult to keep things straight. I agree that being thoroughly familiar with the material is key. The interruption of thumbing through the book(s) can kill a game if too long. I will use some of your suggestions the next time I run a new game. I like the show.
Go Forth and Game,
