I have thought of a different podcast that I might like to try. I thought it might be a meaningful, constructive experience to have a guest who dislikes me, or at the very least dislikes everything I stand for, and have stood for, since starting this blog.
Now, I really love D&D. I enjoy the game, I enjoy the set-up for the game, I enjoy the meta-game behind the actual game play. Of late, I have been enjoying letting other people talk about their games, letting them speak freely, and without criticism, about things I would normally reproach. I don't say this has changed me, but ... I do think that this particular angle on the activity of role-playing games is intensely authentic.
So we disagree. So what. I'm prepared to put myself in front of the gun, in public, so long as my acccuser is able to be polite, erudite, reasonable, exacting in their criticism and potentially willing to stand for a friendly, impersonal debate. And to be honest, I doubt at this point that the last would be anything more than the product of banter, as people are likely to disagree with one another once a subject reaches a certain death.
I'll be fair in my editing; I will cut out personal comments about me but not about my opinions: and before the podcast goes up, I will allow you to sign off on it.
So, what say? Good for a clubbing on the grouchiest bastard in RPGs?
