Great interview and very insightful. I think it helps everyone to see how hard Albert works behind the scenes to keep this place afloat and I for one am very grateful for what he does. 

 

I must have missed the troll part, I was listening more than watching it. When does this happen? Any other AA members in the background of the video?

That's a damn fine interview and 1 which established the founding principles of this site, straight off the bat.

Sharing of information.
Very active forum.
Continued supply of amazing homebrew games.

Nice to put a face and voice to the name as well Albert.

Having witnessed some of the most horrific slander of this site and it's associated people on YT comments sections in the past year and from some very familiar sounding names...

If i were a betting man....

My thoughts as well. It wasnt fluff and a good amount of time was devoted for an interesting discussion of the sites history and purpose from Al. So who are the AA background folks? I think That was Mr. Champeau checking the dollars in his wallet at one point, ha ha!

I finally got around to watching this one, it is another great and entertaing interview , especially for me because I didn't attend the show. Maybe next year. So thanks very much for recording these videos! The reactions from folks walking in front of the camera were hilarious.

You're welcome Cafeman! PRGE is such an amazing retro expo, I go every year to it.

The next interview coming out is with Dan Kitchen where I talk with him about his two new homebrew games he's working on. It should be released early in the new year!
