    Having fun listening to this storyline, lots of great roleplay and characters, sounds like they are having fun too. The few times when things drag and/or become generally unsatisfying (from my perspective) are almost always when they actually engage with the rules, thankfully the vast majority of time they don’t. I am sure this system and related ones truly elevate some people’s games in ways they crave but I have yet to see it for myself. Thankfully whether they like the system or not they are being extremely uncritical so it hasn’t turned into the 5e debacle.

      Original game? All of our games are original – except for that one time we did a prepackaged DnD 5E game… oof.
      Thanks for your question!

        Sorry for the confusion. I’m talking about the 4th editing game. The original or founding game with Rodrigo Lopez as the GM. Will this game ever come back or is Critical Hits future a collection of short stories?

          Ah, you mean The Void Saga. I don’t think we’ve ever said it wouldn’t come back… so yes, it will be making a return.

            It’s kind of beginning to sound like you don’t like the main game Stephen? I know it’s called the Void Saga, or Vertex, but to a lot of it us, it is the original critical hit game, because it was the one that started it all. And it’s also the main game to a lot of us, because it’s been the one going on for the longest, and the sort of biggest arc in the show. And you guys have been calling it the main game on the podcast through the years.

            I love the story, and the game, and it sort of feels like you’re stamping on it when you pretend to not know what’s meant by “the original” game.

            When people call the void saga the main game, or the original game, or the main story, or whatever, it’s really out of passion and love for the show.
