Never tell us the odds; it’s the new episode of Geek at Arms! In this episode we welcome writer, editor, graphic designer, and all-around cool guy Eric Trautmann to the show!

Next, James and Bryan give an emotional review of the latest novel in the Dresden Files series, Battle Ground. James then shares how much he’s enjoying The Witcher 3 on Xbox. After receiving many recommendations Mike gives us his take on the anime Re:Zero, and closing out the segment Bryan describes publishing a special 1st Edition D&D module written by Mike Garcia for The Christian Gamers Guild. Finally, Eric recounts his experience working on the Star Wars D6 system for West End Games, giving us a brief glimpse into the RPG industry.

James explains how his new game Kingdom Come: Deliverance feels like stepping into 15th century Bohemia and how much he and his wife enjoyed Captain Marvel.
