[insert quest here] is a Queer Australian podcast that focuses on Role Playing Games. We love telling diverse stories, and so we do our best to lift up the voices of our community by showing off new and innovative games, from a bunch of designers.
We have a lot of Actual Plays, and interviews, and sometime host other content that is harder to define.
Tournament Arc Interview
On today's episode Rei talks with Chloe about here awesome new sports anime inspired RPG Tournament Arc. Tournament Arc borrows from Belonging Outside Belonging type games and blends that with a broad definition of sport.
It's an exciting conversation and one we've been dying to have!

Shanty Hunters Kickstarter Interview
Recently we had the pleasure of talking to Tristan Zimmerman about his new game Shanty Hunters. A game about trying to collect a record of the oral history stored in sea shanties before they disappear. An also the music sometimes comes alive!
One of my favourite parts of this game is that it wants you to sing. More singing RPGs please!
We also talked about the difficulty of sourcing period appropriate art, and the difficulties of show casing the true diversity of the time period it's set in.
Shanty Hunters is currently Kickstarting, you can find the campaign here. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/moltensulfur/shanty-hunters?ref=ee836u
Iron Edda Reforged Kickstarter Interview
Iron Edda Reforged is the latest iteration of an ongoing multiverse of games and other fiction. Like it's forbears Iron Edda Reforged is built (almost literally) around the bones of giants and Ragnarok! Reforged adds a cyberpunk flare to the mix.
It's all the brain child of Tracy, who is this weeks guest on the show. We had a chat about running a kickstarter, something Tracy is considered an expert on. Often being hired as a kickstarter consultant for new RPG projects. We also talked about the unique design work that has gone into making Iron Edda Reforged.

A fun show playing a diverse array of games
It sets itself apart from other actual play podcasts in the breadth of games played and a williness to explore different stories and settings. It covers one-shot episodes as well as campaigns that wrap up in a dozen or so episodes. There is always a new game and cast so it's easy to jump in.
It's mindful of the stories it tells and the characters it explores which sets it apart from the sometimes brash 'just for a laugh' vibe of some RPG podcasts.
The audio quality can be a little bumpy at times but it makes up for it with passion and heart.
