Episode 30 – Post Gen Con 2018

It took us nearly a month to recover, but the Roleplaying Exchange is back with our rather lengthy post-Gen Con episode.  Join us as Adam, Chris, Daniel, Laura M., Patrick, and Sean discuss their Gen Con 2018 experiences.
 
SWAG Discussed:  
Psst… We have a super-secret Patreon page. It is super-secret because Adam accidentally flagged it as adult content. So until Patreon reviews our account and determines that our nudes are in fact *tasteful* (j/k), you can only find this page through the links we post. Go ahead join. Tell your friends you supported RPX before they sold out and went mainstream.
