221 – Mechanics That Broke Our Games

The Mythcreant Podcast
Plenty of RPGs have unbalanced rules or abilities, and sometimes those broken powers get so out of control that they bring the entire game to a screeching halt. This episode we’ll tell our own stories of RPG destruction. We’ll talk about magic systems that go too far, swords that can kill anything, and the consequences of steady income streams. Plus, Johnathan explains how he breaks every adventure by flying straight to the end.
