My fellow gamers, It is that time of year again. There is a new season of our favorite webseries: The Guild. In honor of the show, Rhonda and I discuss the past seasons, the development of some of our favorite characters, and how gaming communities evolve.

A quick shout out for VitaminAmy and her Extra Life marathon on October 20.
