EXP Podcast #596: Chekhov's Dog

One of them loves pets.  Choose wisely.
Hey, it's a hectic week for those of us living in the US (and many would argue the world at large) so we're going to try to keep it light by talking about something so innocuous that only true monsters would object: petting virtual dogs.  Sometimes you need to just focus on mechanics whose entire point is just to provide some small amount of joy.  We expand into a few other completely optional world-building mechanics and enjoy a short vacation into a world of totally pleasant digital interactions.
