Did someone say roleplaying? Yes! Hexes & Bows Podcast finally starts roleplaying with special guest Chris from Car Bomb Podcast! hexesandbows.com We're joined today by variety podcaster Chris from Car Bomb Podcast. Us Americans are taught a thing or two about Tim Hortons and the paranoia and curse of playing "roll up the rim." We also get a little serious and inquire about making roleplaying games more accessible by using American Sign Language. While we don't have any real answers, please inform us if you or someone you know plays any sort of TRPG while using ASL, we'd love to learn more! This week Kickstarter recommendations include Companion's Tale, Innocents, and Shore of Anaverde Card Set. Be sure to listen to learn more about these interesting games! Now, we know we've been talking about roleplaying on the show, but tonight we finally begin! Sit back and listen to the stories of a group of NPC townsfolk kibitzing and kvelling in the Scroll and Bottle tavern hidden above a bookstore. What happens when the city of Galter's Mayor decides to squander away all of their taxes on a giant, singular diamond?
