What’s more fun than taking an ethical system from one world, and trying to find how our favorite characters from other worlds fit into it. In this episode we start with the ethical color pie from Magic the Gathering, in which we look at ethics not in terms of actions, but motivations and mind sets. We explain the system and then focus on other characters.
Even if you know nothing about MtG, if you like talking about how Tony Stark, Malcolm Reynolds, and Han Solo, all have similar ethical frameworks, this episode is for you!
Rob McKenzie is a science fiction and fantasy reader and Magic the Gathering judge from Minnesota. He is passionate about interesting books, running great gaming events, and helping other people have fun with their passions.
Meg Baum is a Level 3 MTG Judge and all around irredeemable nerd who loves stories, cooking, and adventures. She is the Judge Manager for Pastimes and moonlights occasionally as a Decontamination Technician at nuclear power plants. You can find her on Twitch/Twitter/Facebook/basically everything @mbgeekgirl
