Rob and Mike talk about how Foundation is super duper okay.
We’re a bit off-schedule lately, so we can’t promise a specific recording date if you’re looking to join the discussion. Shoot us a message at @SorryTopic on Twitter and we can add you to the Discord to make sure you don’t miss out.
Rob, Alex, Mike, and Leul are digging some of the unique parts of the TV version, like Imperial Cloning™ but it’s still not clear how things will play out for The Foundation on Terminus, and what seems to be an impending crisis.
We’re off this week, so here’s some B-roll of my recent conversation with Mike Rapin. Before we got into our chat about Video Games + Roll Playing we blew off some steam about work. Mostly complaining, but kind of interesting to hear about common problems in tech work. Hopefully it can be interesting to a broader audience too.
This is a pretty specific episode, so feel free to skip it if RPGs and video games aren’t your thing.
Alex and Rob have been thinking about playing Elite Dangerous (that space game we’ve mentioned several times) but with a role-playing twist where we stay in character and make decisions in the game based on our character’s motivation. We’re a little stuck on how to turn this very “blank canvas” type of online game into a role playing game however. So, we’ve called in the expert, none other than… Mike Rapin! Mike will also be joining our group in the game. Maybe we’ll document some more about how figure this out together… maybe a totally new podcast just for the game.
