Hack Attack is a show where hosts GM Steven "Silent0siris" Lumpkin and Adam Koebel discuss, change and improve the rules of the West Marches and other RollPlay shows. Since the theme of standard 5e D&D and the West Marches are very different, the rules need to be modified to better suit this theme. In general this means rewarding players for exploring, using creative solutions and revealing their pasts.
Each episode has a specific theme (inspiration, downtime, etc) and usually some of the changes discussed are implemented in one of the next few sessions. The show air very irregularly over at Adams channel.
