On the subject of introverts and extroverts, Susan Cain wrote an interesting book called "Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking". I'm only about a chapter in, but it's really interesting.

In the introduction, she talks about something she calls the Extrovert Ideal. This is the idea that society has dictated that the thing that everyone should strive for, the ideal self, is to be comfortable in the spotlight, outgoing and have a colourful personality. However, she also talks about Closet Introverts, that many people act as extroverts to suit society, but really are introverted.

Also in the introduction, there was an informal personality test (link here to the same test online). Particularly interesting and relevant questions to the 'coat' conversation (bloody hilarious, if I may say so) are questions 5 (I dislike small talk, but I enjoy talking in depth about topics that matter to me.) and question 15 (I feel drained after being out and about, even if I’ve enjoyed myself.).

Finally, Dan thought he was a mixture of the two. If you take the test and get a generally balanced score, that means you'd probably be an ambivert, a mixture of introvert and extrovert.

I'm not expert on this, just thought it was an interesting book with an interesting topic and it came to mind when they were talking about it.

I think Arin likes The Art of Game Design: A Book of Lenses, Second Edition and either he or Jon liked Game Feel: A Game Designer's Guide to Virtual Sensation.

Personally my favorite game design resource is either Mark Rosewater's design articles or his podcast. I prefer his podcast but both covers most of the same information. MaRo is the lead designer for Magic: The Gathering so a lot of the articles are about MtG specifically or about tabletop games but nearly all the general design podcasts are worthwhile. Most importantly, he has around twenty years of successful (and unsuccessful) design under his belt, so he isn't just talking in vague generalities or theories. He has examples backing up pretty much everything he talks about including, and maybe most importantly, times he thought he was doing the right then and messed up. I think anyone interested in game design should listen to the "Ten Things Every Game Needs" and "20 Lessons" series. You can hear his GDC version of the 20 Lessons here.

*: But the absolute best thing you can read on game design is a gamemaker tutorial. Theory is useless without execution.

While I won't be able to keep up with your level of geeking out here, you have my respect completely. I love lore in general, and the polytheistic pantheon are really fascinating. Did a few presentations on Greek/Roman deities way back in the day for school.

If you like that mythos and urban fantasy, I highly recommend giving the Olympus Bound series a read.

Not to stray away from Jon, but there is a great book that gives a nice unbiased approach on the whole Israeli-Palestinian conflict called The Lemon Tree. If you have the chance, give it a read.

If anyone is interested in the Upright Citizens Brigade there's a book you can purchase that's quite good and is the standard resource for anyone interested in rat dicks.

Epic Spell wars.

In the words of the beef "Don't let your dreams be dreams. DO IT!" also make sure Danny and Arin play it too, because...well... just look at the box art.

just like to say Flour + Water is the quintessential pasta cookbook.

I believe Arin once recommended The Art of Game Design.

Here (~6:35) he talks about something I believe he got from that book.

I ended up getting this book for Suzy after that goose episode and sent it to their post office box:

Probably this one http://www.amazon.com/Characteristics-Games-George-Skaff-Elias/dp/026201713X

Game Theory is mostly math by the way, it doesn't directly pertain to video games.

Consequences change based on circumstance. Unless you don't think theres a "fanaticism problem" in deontogy or whatever frameworks you have credence in.

Holly not being depressed --> getting trashed online for being a whore = fine whatever

Holly being depressed --> getting trashed online and then killing herself = not the same calculation.

Morality is a tug of war. Get read on some ethical theory, you adorable philistine. 😎
