In this episode Sasha returns from a long hiatus to talk about prohibition and cocktails during the 1920s. His guest is Artemis Knight form the Bear Swarm! podcast (http://www.bearswarm.com/). Since they are both gaming geeks, the Call of Cthulhu role playing game is mentioned.

Sasha also explains why it’s been so long since the last episode, and asks you wonderful folks to help him make future shows be more frequent: Send in questions for him to answer on the show via email to podcast@pixlee.net or, better yet, leave him a voice mail at (510) 394-4461 (that’s (510) 394-GIN-1).

In this very special episode of VTT (Vozes da Terceira Terra, Portuguese for “Voices of the Third Earth”), Marcelo and Ivar get together with Artemis and Paul (and a Mike cameo) from The Bear Swarm Podcast (www.bearswarm.com) to talk about rewards and role-play: should the GM reward role-playing from the players or should he/she not?

[06:35] Qualifying “reward”.
[14:15] The rewardless approach.
[24:20] Loquacious people.
[27:25] How to reward and don’t punish.
[31:45] The downside of no role-playing.
