Another apocalypse list for you.
In the near future, the capital of Sweden has turned into a post-apocalyptic wasteland. We join four soldiers on a routine mission in ‘zone 3’, with the assignment to investigate an old surveillance tower that just went offline.
For the 46th episode of Podcast at Ground Zero the topic will be driven by the questions you the viewers ask Frank Frey about Twilight: 2000. Frank Frey is a game designer that wrote or co-wrote several Twilight: 2000 modules and sourcebooks.
In tonight’s episode we are bringing back Frank Frey to talk some more Twilight: 2000 except this time the questions we ask are going to come from you the audience. I will be posting a comment and pinning to the top of the Facebook event page and that is where I will be asking you to post your questions to Frank. Please help us keep the questions organized and only post your comments there.
So join Scott, Frank and I on our trek thru the Cursed Earth we think you’ll enjoy the company.

A friend of the show today shared a link with me to a series of blog posts giving a history of post-apocalyptic games. They are by Lowell Francis and are on his blog Age of Ravens. There have been nine parts written since last October. Lowell gives his perspective on the games and he sets the ground rules for what he defines a post-apocalyptic game.
I felt they were well written and informative. I was also humbled by the fact that there were many games on his lists that I have never heard of. It’s worth your time to read these posts if you have a love of the post-apocalyptic RPG genre and I think you do. I hope he continues since he left off in 2005.
