PaizoCon 2017 012 – Cartoons Made Me a Better GM

Welcome to the Know Direction podcast network’s PaizoCon 2017 seminar coverage!

012 – Cartoons Made Me a Better GM
Cartoons from the 1980s and 1990s were simplistic moral dramas used to sell cheap toys to children, yet they’re fondly remembered. In this panel, we’ll look at the simplified narrative structure, exaggerated characters, and memorable traditions of older cartoons and talk about how these simple elements can make for a stronger and more fun experience at the game table.
Speakers: Crystal Frasier, Amanda Hamon Kunz, Mark Moreland
