Good podcast - fun to hear about how different people are getting involved/engaged with RuneQuest!

I don't recall if I'd seen the New Hero youtube campaign called out before when it started, but decided to listen to it based on this podcast.  Definitely give it a shout out for it!  Engaging campaign and it's a lot of fun listening to. 

Three things I'll call out particularly:

1) very good introduction in my opinion for newcomers to RQG to learn about the game system. (And even helpful for those who've been playing RQG for quite awhile - realized that I've been over-penalizing failure on Runic inspiration!)

2) great to see a campaign moving into another section of the Colymar lands, this time with the Varmandi. As James noted in the podcast, they've been on the fringes of other campaigns for a long time, but never quite the center of attention.

3) it's nice to see a campaign with two players/characters. We often think of campaigns needing 3-6 players, but this is a great example of how to work with just 2.
