We’ve all been there.  Breaking into cold sweats in the middle of the night with cravings.  You can’t sleep, you can’t eat, your family keeps asking why you’re acting so differently.  You know they just won’t understand, because deep down, you know you need just one more hit… one more bump to keep you going until the next one… just one more.. GOOD TIME WITH YOUR GEEKINESS!!!  Join us this week as we discuss our current geeky obsessions.  If you’ve been listening, you’ll know that it can be almost anything.  Hit the ATM, bring a whole bunch of patience, and kiss the heat wave goodbye as we discuss what’s got us all hot to trot on a brand new episode of Monkey in the Cage!

One thought on “Episode 44 – Current Addictions

  1. I read the Savage Worlds basic PDF after multiple endorsements from Gamerstable. It was one of few systems I enjoyed reading for its own sake. I can’t wait for your take on it.

    Also, thanks for the heads up on Monte Cook’s new project. He’s my all-time favorite game designer. Jared picked up Ptolus as a gift for me back in the day. Those were some of the best sessions I ever DMed.
