One thought on “Episode 118 – Peter Bebergal’s “Appendix N: The Eldritch Roots of Dungeons & Dragons” with special guest Ian McGarty”

  1. As far as good examples of play for “What is a Role-Playing Game,” I do like some of the extensive examples of play in the Replay sections that various Japanese Tabletop RPGs that have been licensed and translated for the US have included – in particular, the replay for the Konosuba Tabletop RPG does a really good job of not just giving an example of play, but also examples of a variety of the game’s rules in action.
