We had occasion to talk to game designer, and fellow interviewer; Brie Sheldon. We talked about what motivates them to create, why they interview people, and Brie even gave us some ideas for Two Sided Quest!
We also tried out some slight modifications to our intro.
We’re playing Dungeon World again, and honestly it’s a delight. Character creation, Setting generation, and picking a quest! All of that and a little bit more, in this session zero episode with Ellery, Fin, and Ray.
Ben is a Maltese-Australian game designer with a background in video game design; but he also makes RPGs. We had him on to talk about his history, his process, and some of his games. It was a blast and we can’t wait to play Ben’s stuff.
If you’d like to see more from Ben, he’s provided us with a list of links!

This is the session Zero and session One of our short Monsterhearts game. The session zero includes discussions of what elements we want to look at, what themes we want to deal with, and what we want to avoid. We talk about racism, sexism, and violence. We discuss safety tools.
Session One begins on in a dorm room, in a boys only boarding school, on an island. And the actually recording starts at 1h and 50m.
This week we explore the difficulties of fixing someone else’s mistakes, difference of morality, family stress, and the complexity of building a new world.
This is Mars Colony, a two person RPG by Tim C Koppang.
This episode was recorded in a rather resonant space, but shouldn’t be a problem to listen to. We hope you enjoy listening to this Two Person RPG.
We were asked by Burning Games to play their new game about the colonisation of America by monsters who ride into war on dragons. It’s meant to be a game that deals with issues of exploitation and prejudice but honestly; I don’t think they take a hard enough stance.
We had fun playing the game, so I hope you enjoy listening to us fumble our way through temples, and jungles, and strange monsters. This was the first time we’d played a card resolution RPG on the show as well, so enjoy that. (more…)
