Ep 4, Religion in RPGs

We talk about Politics in RPGs all the time, so why not faith as it applies to fantasy (or even scifi) world creation? Most of the time we create plenty of gods, but not religions for those gods to inhabit. This long rambling podcast is sort of a dissertation on the why and how of …
