Description

After the opening banter, Hambone leads us off with the SRG Super Show, a card-based professional wrestling game (01:30).

The main event arrives: Middle Earth Roleplaying, also known as MERP (08:27). Stu breaks down the dissonance between Tolkien’s work and MERP (10:32) and the weird timeline the setting uses (11:20). Stu explains how Iron Crown Enterprises got the Middle Earth license (12:00) and discusses ICE’s downfall (12:30). The MERP map of Middle Earth comes up (14:23) and Stu laments that fact that the game will never see the light of day again. They discuss the difference between the Star Wars Expanded Universe and MERP (15:30). Stu brings up the legendary critical hit and fumble charts (17:00). Stu makes some closing remarks (17:50).

Stu talks about how excited he is about Ben Robbins’ Follow. (18:20)
