(Fixed audio.) This episode's conversation about mass combat—a topic selected by our Patreon supporters—turned out to be so big, we're following this one up with another episode on a related topic next time! Before that, though, we've got a lot of other things to discuss: The holidays, and especially all the games we played and picked up over the Christmas break. We talk a bit more about our Patreon and the need to change things somewhat as we move forward into 2018 (leave your comments on that below.) We also send our congratulations and prayers to Mike Perna and his family as they welcome their son into the world; and we send our condolences to the family and friends of Pat Roper, longtime Fear the Boot host, who passed away just after Christmas.
Our Patreon question this week comes from Paige, who asks "Is there a game/campaign/thing you wish you could run, but you don't feel skilled enough to do it?" The answer: Oh my yes. All that having finally been taken care of, we do eventually get to our main topic: Making interesting mass combat scenarios as part of your ongoing roleplaying game campaign.
