Today, I had the honor of speaking with a longtime online friend for the first time over Facebook messenger VOIP. In this podcast we talk about his book, Noblesse Oblige which is already out and available on Amazon and other retailers. The book is about a Princess, an auction, and future corporations ran by people with stiff upper lips and tenacity. Uri has spoken with me in depth about the book and while I have not yet read the book, it sounds like it is steeped with intrigue and peppered with a fun plot!
In addition to being a fellow writer, Uri is also a fellow veteran game master and like me also runs games with kiddos. In this podcast we also speak about a few tales of his past games and what worked for him. Uri also gives us his top five suggestions to running a good game.

In a universe where corporate scions hold aristocratic titles and wield absolute power, a young princess embarks on a mission of mercy to find a new home for the refugees created by her father’s many wars. To her dismay, an invitation to an isolated planetoid that could serve as the perfect home for the poor exiles turns out to be a ploy by the infamous Baron Von Schmidt to add yet another outrage to his repertoire. What starts as an exclusive party in her honor is soon revealed to be something far more sinister: a depraved auction where the item on sale is her royal highness and the bidders are a who’s who of the galaxy’s worst scoundrels! With only enemies in sight and no way to call for help, the young princess has no choice but to rescue herself. This will not be easy. Her foes include a Chinese space pirate, a young Russian duelist, a high-tech samurai, a Venusian Mafiosi, two expert French poisoners recently returned from the horror vacui, a floating Swiss banker of unimaginable wealth, and a British gentleman who also happens to be a pterodactyl. Her arsenal consists of vague memories from classes she mostly slept through, a pile of gadgets for which she’s never read the user manual, and a ferret.
