He's the man behind the Eberron campaign setting for Dungeons & Dragons, the creator of the Gloom card game, and he might even be able to grab his hat just before the stone wall closes! He's Keith Baker, game designer extraordinaire, and in this episode Scott and Arnold talk with Keith about his career, his creations, and his critical hit on the hearts and minds of gamers everywhere!

Special note: There were some minor technical issues with the audio during the interview, but we hope it doesn't lessen anyone's enjoyment of the wealth of info and great conversation!

Additional Show Music by Still Pluto.
