In this episode Brandon and James talk an odd kind of hack designed to bridge the gap between two games. Specifically they chat about James’s game Signal Light, a hack of Microscope designed to build a setting for Masks: A New Generation.



The next episode will be a break from our standard episodes. We are launching a new podcast and our actual play of the Signal Light hack we talk about in this episode will be released on both feeds.



Here is a link to the Signal Light hack as it was prior to the playtest. Follow our twitter or website for an updated, post-playtest, version.
