In this episode Brandon and James ramble about play by post games, but eventually get on point talking about nation states, kingly moves, and other faction tier movings and shakings. We talk about different tools and hacks you could use to either play a realistic world history, or have one ready for a game you’re playing. Things get weird. Stay til the end.



Both Brandon and James are having crazy stressful times at work and are working very hard to launch a new podcast alongside this one. We promise these show notes and outlines will go back to being more detailed soon.
