Gen Con Highlights with Green Mario aka Greg Marks - Updated

Episode 40: The full-time fortieth episode of the PokeProblemsPodcast! Tonight we have the return of celebrity DM and Wizards of the Coast Organized Play leader Greg Marks aka Skerrit the Green aka Green Mario. He's here to tell us about Gen Con 2016. He was there as a celebrity DM for D&D Adventurers League. (If you want to follow him on Twitter: ) The D&D Organized Play is run at Gen Con by Baldman Games, and Greg was recruited to run 8 adventures! Our discussion touches on the new game slot schedule, the impressive number of adventures being run at the Con, how he didn't make it to play Pathfinder with the Paizo folks, how he's excited for the Star Trek RPG, cosplay, Gen Con attendance, Robo Rally and so much more. (He also brags about his many podcast guest spots, like on the Down with D&D Podcast...) Greg has a lot of stuff going on right now:

Green Mario also recommends this Comic about IV's by Maphrox, despite the fact he's not playing! You can use an IV calculator such as this one from Poke Assistant to figure out your Pokemon's IVs in Pokemon GO!
