In 2017, Meric played a slideshow of 12 game ideas he'd had and introduced the first players to this wild idea. A potluck and a one shot every month for an entire year.
When the first game came around, he put a microphone on the table and said "Would it be cool if I record this? I might put them out as a podcast."
Since then we've had nearly 60 people signing up for games and playing one shot tabletop RPG adventures.
