Episode 27: Birthright, or The Name Ed Stark Sounds Familiar

The forgotten campaign setting of D&D, as Ross likes to call it. The original creator of Birthright, Richard Baker, joins us to talk about the setting that just might have inspired Game of Thrones. You are a king, lord of your land with the divine right to rule – literally, you have divine energy that fuels your bloodline. This is Ross’s favorite campaign setting and, after recording and listening to the episode, Darryl is pretty intrigued as well. So sit back while we tell you all about why you should remember Birthright.
