CW: Violence, corporal punishment, kidnapping, colonialism.

We did a crossover of sorts recently. We had Lachlan from Fantasy Cartography on the show to play a little bit of The Deep Forest with us. It was a blast!
For those that are unaware, The Deep Forest is a collaborative map drawing game built off of The Quiet Year. It’s about communities reestablishing themselves in a postcolonial world. The hardships they face, and how they overcome them. Our game feature some violence, and a few absurd jokes; but we still played to the subject matter, so just be aware that it might be a bit emotional for some.

Good Society Interview

We had Vee and Hayley on the show to talk to us about their new Jane Austen RPG, Good Society. It’s got some really interesting setup mechanics that help you tailor the game to your groups style.
It was a pleasure catching up with them again. If you’d like to talk to them about all they have going on, why not head to Ettin Con? Vee and Hayley will be there running games.

[Blades In The Dark/The Quiet year]: World Building Arcus

In this week’s episode we share with you how we created the setting for our Blades in The Dark campaign, using a map drawing game called The Quiet Year. 
After we finished up the game Fin went and listened through the whole episode, extrapolating changes, and cutting the fat until we had a nice consistent setting. Then he drew us a kick ass map! 
We hope you all enjoy this look at a cool little thing we did.

[Blades In The Dark]: Arcus 22

It’s the last episode of Blades In The Dark; of course the players don’t know that.

The Spectres are breaking into prison to break someone out of prison…and oh my, the prison is Bedlam. A warren of impetus infused restraints, cells, locks, and doors. Wardens with strange other worldly power. A space void of light, hope, and peace of mind.

Hopefully the Spectres all get out safe!
