I had emergency uncle duties today (sick niece home from school) so I was finally able to catch up on some podcast listening. On the ride home I listened to the first episode of Hobbs & Friendsof the OSR, and I must say - I was impressed.
It was a nice, relaxed conversation between Jason Hobbs +Jason Hobbs and +Eric Hoffman and it felt like I was sitting at the local watering hole with them.
Much of the episode was spent talking about USR 2.0 (Unbelievably Simple Roleplaying), a game I've followed from a distance. Its intrigued me enough to decide to give it a look. Heck, its PWYW, so why not? ;)
Hey, even I got a mention along with SWL, but more in the context of a recent discussion over whether or not less rules / text / etc is viable as well as useful. I think much of the viability depends on the goals of the product in question, but that's a whole 'nother discssion.
In any case, enjoyable episode. Now I need to catch up :)
