The Crusading Couch Episode 17: What Does Your Gear Say About You?

This month on the Crusading Couch we discuss the intricate interplay between equipment and characters. From your character’s favourite weapon to the handyman’s tool that they can’t be without, we discuss the meaning of the gear that your character has, and what that says about how they behave.
We approached this topic from the perspective of the character in the heat of the moment, as well as the thought that you the player put into those choices; whether that was consciously or sub-conciously.

The Crusading Couch Episode 14: What Is The Meaning Of Xmas?

This month Wilfred, Kim, and Raymond discuss their various Christmas experiences, histories, and feelings towards the season!
Discover why Kim doesn’t like Christmas carols, why Wilfred enjoys most aspects of the festive season, and hear Raymond’s thoughts on the capitalist bubble which Christmas has become.

CORRECTION from Raymond: I often get confused between J. Edgar Hoover (a famous head of the FBI) and Franklin D. Roosevelt. In this episode I think I might have fused them into one entity. FDR moved Thanksgiving in 1939.

Morality.
Is it one of the most important aspects to a well-rounded character but the first thing to be lost when times get tough?
