Kevin Siembieda Live

Robotech (warts and all) is one of the games that started me out in the hobby (along with other Palladium standards like Palladium Fantasy & TMNT), so I'm curious to hear more about the upcoming Robotech: The Shadow Chronicles RPG Palladium is putting back out. So I'll be listening to the Kevin Siembieda Live Call-In Show tomorrow night, hoping to hear some good things/hints about the game. Judging how certain online communities feel about Mr. Siembieda, I'm wondering how many of the call-ins will consist solely of enraged, near-incoherent gouts of profanity.

I've personally never been wronged by KS, so I have nothing bad to say about him from my own experiences. I envy his ability to be as self-contained as he is (which is to say, I wish I could draw).

But working for more than a decade in the RPG exposed me to many stories from those who have been wronged by him, and I shudder to think ...

But I suspect folks who pay attention to something like a KS call-in show will be mostly fans rather than detractors. That said, it might be a good idea to have a 10-second delay or call-screening process :)

Well, we'll see how many RPGnetters call in, and if they do have that delay button. That will determine that FCC fine I imagine (you know, if podcasts had FCC fines)
