In another Origins show, we review the survival horror board game, Last Night on Earth from Flying Frog Productions. We also had a chance to interview Kenneth Hite. We had a blast doing this show.
One to ponder... Is it a sign that the world may indeed be ending when Ken Hite's and Andy Hopp's Where the Deep Ones Are is available for pre-order on the Target website?!

At the Savage Worlds Roundtable, we were treated to a Matthew Cutter performance of The Hero of Savages (The Man They Call Shane). This song is a filk of the Firefly song with a similar name, and the lyrics were written by Clint Black.
Many folks have asked for a high-quality, stereo copy of the song. I have fulfilled half that request here.
Noting the Creative Commons license attached to this site, I ask that, when linking to this song, the poster actually link to this post. The point of TGTT posting something like this is to get traffic to our site.
Thanks for supporting us, and thanks to Matthew Cutter for the permission to make this available outside the podcast episode.

So it's finally here. The show opens with Matt's performance of a new song, lyrics by Clint Black, based on a fan-favorite Joss Whedon song! Then we were treated to discussion about Savage Worlds with Shane Hensley, Clint & Jodi Black, Sean Preston, Sean Patrick Fannon, Matthew Cutter, and a cast of Savages. Thanks to all involved!
