MetAnon Ep158 – All in the Reflexes

In our 158th regular episode of Metagamers Anonymous, the casts discusses proactive vs. reactive roleplaying and the rules of improv and how they can be used to enhance the roleplaying experience. They also talk the latest on TsunamiCon, pull a letter from the mailbag, and review tactics for fine-tuning the pitch for a con game. Metagamers Anonymous is a podcast dedicated to tabletop roleplaying games and (mostly) related material. Join in the fun by posting comments or questions to our forum, or drop us a line at [email protected].

Hosts: Erik, William, Jason, and Richard
