Chaotic evil programmer kills his coworkers in-game.

We talk about a comical Dungeons and Dragons related posting on the Workplace StackExchange.com website. The gist is that a new employee met people with similar interests after 4 months and started playing D&D with them. At the first session of an ongoing game, the original poster decided to kill off his party after they were severely hurt in a team battle against monsters. After the session, this person is completely shunned in real life by the entire D&D group. Commenters attempt to help the poster understand what a bad idea it was to do that and suggested that he apologize among other things. We discuss this goofy story and provide some our own D&D experiences to the conversation.

About the podcast

This podcast is all about discussing anything we feel motivated to contemplate. "We consider, evaluate, and postulate everything!" is our catch phrase for good reason, because anything is fair game to be analyzed. We speculate a lot about where technology could go in the future. We talk about gaming, or rather our lack of having time to spend gaming. We discuss ways to invest, or just how we think the economies of the world are doing. We think about how society functions with a focus on ways to communicate and share for the greater good of everyone involved. Join us for our exploration of life!
