Hey everyone! This week we've got an episode that's not strictly tabletop-gaming based, but absolutely tabletop-adjacent: We're joined by two of my personal friends, Alan and Delilah, to talk about foam swordfighting and LARPing. Even if you've never done it, you should still listen- you'll definitely learn some things, and who knows, you might even want to try it out when we're done!
And the winner of this week's Crit 3 drawing is NJC! Congratulations, NJC! Be sure to leave Crit Academy a review, so they can keep on making great products! They're a great group and would love to use your feedback to improve their products in the future.
Every week we're going to be giving away this new bundle of three new character option supplements from Crit Academy- the Warmind, the Skybreaker, and the Werecat- and all you have to do to enter is send us an e-mail with "Crit 3" in the subject line. It's that easy!
And if you'd like to help support the show and get some great additional content for it, head over to http://www.patreon.com/interpartyconflict and become a patron! Even a dollar a month gets you some bonus content, and there's lots of cool stuff there for anyone willing to help make the show better.
And remember, Crit Academy is just one of the great podcasts in the Critnation Fellowship! For more podcasts, visit our friends at Brute Force and Ignorance, The Kind GM, and D&D Character Lab! And for books, adventures, and videos, check out Goblin Stone, Loresmyth, Aurican's Lair, and Jeff Stevens!
