In which Eddy, Dixie, and Matthew conclude answering listener questions!

* Derek Acorrah joins us from Beyond the Grave and Eddy's wild mind!
* The meandering road of the Onyx Pathcast and Matthew's feud with Ian A. A. Watson.
* Roleplaying group drama!
* Matthew continues his Vincenzo rant.
* Outside of your work for OPP (and White Wolf), what projects have you worked on that you're the most passionate about?
* Are there more books planned for the Aberrant line aside those already announced?
* What OPP games do you play that you do not want to work on? What OPP games have you worked on and want to play but have not had the opportunity to?
* Tell us more about women as default player characters.
* How do you get into playing D&D / I want to start but don't know how or any of the rules
* In my older age, I have found the metaphor for Vampires to sexual assault/violation of consent has become harder to ignore (for example see VTR: "The Kiss" "The Assault").  How do you handle these (and similar) issues at your tables when they feel hard baked into the framework of the game?
* Are there plans for Onyx Path to do any more Vampire 5th edition books after the supplements to Cults of the Blood Gods are released?
* Do you feel the Storypath system being developed by Onyx Path is poised to become the backbone of future editions or do you think it is more of a freeform stand alone system like Epic and Fudge
* If you had to choose to run/play ONLY CofD or WoD for the rest of your days, which would you choose and why?
* When looking at Community Content created in the Storypath Nexus and other Onyx Path related Community Content Programs, what do you look for in content produced that makes you want to work with a content creator as a Freelancer? 
* What is a TTRPG you feel more people should play?
