Yo dudes, just made an account to say I think Gary is way off base. Do I wish there was WAY more story? Yes! But I play D&D and don't give a shit if they are following all the rules. I guess if you were a rules designer you'd be super interested, but slow your roll man! That post is hella rude. Blaine is probably dealing with all kinds of missed stuff the party walked right by like that cottage right before the spider cave. Deal with it! The players aren't in hell, they're just juggling a lot at once. Sark probably had to work his ass off to do what he did and writing a novel about how you'd fix it is just an example of how YOU have too much time on your hands and THEY probably don't. I also don't think it helps that the people most likely to go online and talk about a podcast are probably people who have an axe to grind, so just because 6-10 people agree with you doesn't mean you speak for some overwhelming majority.
And saying "oh gee whiz I hope this is taken the right way" doesn't make it NOT rude, it's just text book passive-aggressive. You're being super forward like you know them really well.
I don't think anyone wants to punch each other and I only found the podcast because of Dan and Steve and know other people who did the same so I'd dispute the numbers being way down. I think you are pulling a classic nerd move. "WHY DO THE MARVEL MOVIES NOT LOOK LIKE HOUSE OF M DOES IN MY HEAD" Well because you are used to getting perfect fan service (from Sark) and some things are meant to be more for everybody.
