  2. Haven't played Hillfolk (tho I'm enough of a nerd that "bronze age israel" might be more enticing than drama system, hah). But I have played Fiasco, which seems to have some similar characteristics.
    Sometimes it really hits and everyone at the table has a good time, but other times it feels contrived. And I couldn't tell you why.
    I do know that playing Fiasco has influenced how I run my games. Most session zeros involve creating the same kinds of character relationships, even though the focus of our play is still much closer to D&D's standard 'kill them and take their stuff'. The relationships still inform player banter and role playing decisions in the game. I like context for my dungeon crawling so that works for me.

  3. I was just thinking, as he describes Hillfolk it sounds like a total ripoff of Fiasco!, even though it really isn't. I think LindyBeige does not know Fiasco!.

  4. Interesting idea to add this on top of traditional RPGs, and I also immediately thought if Fiasco!
    After I thought about this some more I was reminded of one thing. Dragonlance. If you used the pregren characters from the novels in those modules, they generally have an interconnected backstory, though Riverwind and Goldmoon are new to the group, and some of the other connections are not that interesting). I'm not sure that the OSR crowd would really be into this, but I think it is a great concept for modern TTRPG players that are used to creating huge backstories for their characters. This concept solves the problem of the "Mary Sue" character by making the backstory creation process a collaborative process where everyone needs to agree on each other's back story.

  5. As much as home inspections are important,commercial property inspection also holds a vast importance as offices are considered to be the second place where people spend most of the time in a day. It is very important to get the place inspected thoroughly as EPA reported around 21000 deaths annually due to radon exposure which causes lung cancer in non-smokers. Radon inspection cost is nothing as compared to the price you will have to pay when prolonged radon exposure will result in causing major health issues. Radon is a colorless odorless gas present in the air all around us in trace amounts but it becomes a hazard when it gets entrapped inside the house and the residents of the house are exposed to it. The safe levels of radon as suggested by EPA is 4pCi/l and the amount more than it is alarming and you need to install a radon mitigation system at your commercial property as soon as possible.

  6. It is a common known fact now that radon is a very harmful gas which can get trapped inside our house and then our lungs if inhaled for a longer period of time and it has known to cause lung cancer in non-smokers. In fact, it is the second leading cause of lung cancer after smoking. Due to this reason and as stated by EPA, radon exposure leading to lung cancer takes around 21000 lives annually which is a very alarming figure and this is the reason that without radon testing home inspection is incomplete.
