There some things we forget as “experienced” GMs when it comes to dealing with new players and even new games.
Fortunately, this re-issued episode, as suggested by our listeners, is all about reminding you of those things. Well, I SAY all about, but there is a fair bit of early news items which now have a ‘from the archives’ feel.

Star Wars: Armada came out last week and, since Brian has a soft spot in his heart for combat between capital ships, it seems fitting to talk about it.
