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.

This week is all about the topic of losing characters in tabletop RPGs. Whether it’s a case of self sacrifice, meaningless encounters, or a capricious GM, it’s a delicate topic that is fundamental to many game narratives. We look at it from multiple angles, with the help of our resident tabletop maven, Dave Gordon.

Then, Erin introduces us to a new segment on real life historical events and how those examples can be incorporated into interesting story arcs for your own tabletop games.
