In this episode, our guest hosts talk about their campaign based on the One Piece anime/manga franchise. They talk about why D&D 4E is such a good system for simulating the shōnen genre and how to “re-skin” classes and powers for added effect. Then they recap the comic highlights of the campaign itself.
We’ve broken this episode up into two pieces because irony.
Part two will be released next week. We’ll probably also be doing a practicum on re-skinning at some point.
