VR-Logo-postWelcome back to Vox Republica, the Cardboard Republic Podcast!

We’re back at posting new episodes every Thursday, and each episode will be about 20 – 30 minutes long.

While many tabletop roleplaying games have finite stories to tell and promptly end after its tale has completed its course, one of the most well-known traits of RPGs are those whose stories can go on and on for as long as the players wish.

But did you know that there are other open-ended tabletop games of note besides the most obvious choices of Dungeons & Dragons (or Pathfinder)? It’s true!

This week, we have Dave on to talk about a few of them, inlcuding Wraith: the Oblivion, Shadowrun, Exalted, Legend of the Five Rings and more.
