Happy New Year, listeners! And- possibly more importantly- WE GOT TO A HUNDRED EPISODES! This has been an amazing ride so far, and we never would have made it without you, the listener. So if you're here reading this, THANK YOU!

And because we know how much you love when we deep dive into cerebral, thought-provoking questions about the nature of tabletop gaming and its history and future, this week we're bringing you a special treat- a bunch of questions we've gone (in some cases) two years without having a good answer for! Yes, in a way, we're treating this episode like a garbage can proving ground for some bad answers experimental discussion that we wouldn't have covered on any other episode. But don't worry, this episode was a blast to record and there's definitely a ton of fun to be had!

This week's winner of our Chapel on the Cliffs drawing is Apathywizards! Congratulations, Apathywizards! You should get your copy within the next 48 hours. If you like it (or if you don't) be sure to leave Goblin Stone a review!

Would you like to enter the drawing? It's easy- just e-mail us at with "Chapel on the Cliffs" in the subject line! It's that easy!

And remember, Goblin Stone is just one of the great content creators in the Critnation Fellowship! For more books and adventures, check out LoresmythAurican's Lair, and Jeff Stevens- and for more podcasts, visit our friends at Crit Academy and D&D Character Lab!

One last thing- be sure to get yourself a copy of Crit Academy's Unearthed Tips & Tricks book! It's a great product, and I helped write it!

Happy New Year! Here's to a hundred more episodes!

Question answered this episode:

1. Have you tried D&D style emulation with different systems? (ie. Dungeon World, GURPS Dungeon Fantasy.)

2. If you were looking to emulate a darker low fantasy game what system would you use?

3. Have you ever experimented with genre mashups? Supers/Fantasy, SciFi/Teen Drama, etc?

4. One of my players is a 5e Swashbuckler, and I want to let her dual-wield guns so I'm considering fudging the rules a bit- but I'm afraid it might be too powerful and overshadow the rest of her abilities. What should I do?

5. How can you improve your GM skills to the point where you can change even simple, cliched concepts into engaging plot hooks?

6. Can a way of the four elements monk stun and or knock prone a construct or an elemental (specifically a lightning based elemental)?

7. What RPG would you use for a game based on Halo?
