73: West Marches

In this episode, we discuss West Marches, a style of sandbox play which is designed for a large group of players. It also ties in nicely with the new campaign we’re about to start running for our higher-tier Patreon supporters – a West Marches game with a big pool of players and revolving GMs (Matt & Liam). So without further ado, here’s our thoughts about West Marches, including how we’d tweak it.
