Episode 014: "Should we go where no man has gone before?"
"What is human? What boundaries separate humanity from higher lifeforms? And when we cross that line, what do we become?"
These are just some of the questions asked in science fiction. Roleplaying games give us the opportunity to both ask and answer these questions in unique ways, and as a result offer an experience that is both entertaining and engaging. A sober opening? Perhaps. Scifi often deals with big and complex issues; grand ideas which often have humble, human cores. In this episode, we wax philosophical about scifi - we talk about what we think it is, and how we use it as storytellers and designers. We also talk about our most beloved examples of the genre. We’d love to hear from you, too; how have you been challenged by the questions good scifi asks?
