We welcome back guest host Ben Rome, co-author of Games' Most Wanted and Assistant Line Developer for Catalyst's Battletech line! We discuss the 2013 RPG Podcasters' Charity Drive and our own fundraiser for The Bodhana Group -- including a rundown of all the latest prize news. Then we dive into a discussion of long campaigns, using a four-year campaign from Ben's gaming past as a prime example. We go over the advantages and disadvantages of long campaigns compared to one-shots and mini-campaigns; how to make long campaigns work; pitfalls they might present; and problems to overcome.
