Episode #21: Risus: The Anything RPG Pt. 1

Show Notes:

This week, Fiona is joined by Claire for 'Risus: The Anything RPG' by S John Ross of Cumberland Games & Diversions.

For some, Risus is a handy “emergency” RPG for spur-of-the-moment one-shots and rapid character creation. For others, it’s a reliable campaign system supporting years of play. No matter what you think it is, there's no wrong way to play. Find more information about ‘Risus: The Anything RPG’ on the Cumberland Games & Diversions website: https://rolltop-indigo.blogspot.com/.
