In this episode of Role-Play Ramblings Matt talks with, his guest, Jason Hardy of Catalyst Game Labs about social tension and how it can be applied to role-playing. Filmed at Origins 2016 this is one of my favorite episodes of all time. This episode was inspired by the transgender bathroom debate that was socially prominent early in 2016. Jason and I don’t actually debate an issue here; we discuss how to apply an issue appropriately with your community.

This is a really great episode for thse who truly want to create an extremely rich game world.  Thank you Jason Hardy for making this topic make perfect sense
