Michael Johnson: Online RPG Management – Adventure Party #45
Michael Johnson is a podcaster, artist, web developer, and gamer. You may also know him as @dicetomato. We met when I was a guest on a podcast called Trivia Geeks, which I highly recommend listening to. I also got a chance to watch him do some game play of The Division.

You can find out more about Michael at twitch.tv/Triviageeks, Alphageekradio, or Diamondclub.

Unbound is a new universal RPG system from Look, Robot. You’ll be able to mix genres to create the custom world you’ve always wanted to experience. Medieval cyber aliens? You can make that happen. You’ll be able to mix and match to your heart’s desire. While we haven’t seen too much of their work, we were pretty e
