Captured from a stream event wherein medibot and myself waste no time reviewing the whole set. The task took us just over an hour.

One does not talk about the tenth guild.

Episode 57: The Inevitable Pokémon Discussion

December 28, 2012

We talk a lot about what is good about pokémon (themes and ideas) and what should change about it (all mechanical implementations).
