    Meet the Makers: Erwan Roudaut (Degenesis)

    Meet the Makers: Erwan Roudaut (Degenesis)

    Justin connects with Erwan Roudaut, junior producer at Six More Vodka and one of the makers behind Degenesis: Rebirth to talk about the history of Degenesis and changes they’ve made to their business model to ensure a long and lasting future for the series.

    Degenesis has an almost mythic reputation among those who play it. It’s art is beautiful, it’s presentation is stunning, and it’s world fully engrossing. So how accessible is it to new players? Is now a good time to jump into the waters? And what’s it like to be the run responsible for running a game of Degenesis?

    Degenesis is free to play and you can learn more by visiting degenesis.com

    Meet the Makers: Mitch Wallace (Necrobiotic)

    Meet the Makers: Mitch Wallace (Necrobiotic)

    Justin connects with Mitch Wallace, co-founder of Penny for a Tale and one of the team leads behind Necrobiotic, which is currently in it’s final week on Kickstarter.
    Necrobiotic is a macabre dystopian setting where the dead outnumber the living and in order to farm enough food to survive society turns to their corpses, reanimates them as automaton constructs, and sends them out to work.

    Necrobiotic is also a tabletop RPG that chooses to use a deck of cards to generate characters and play the game, rather than traditional dice.

    Mitch shares with us how his team discovered this setting and why they settled on the card deck mechanics they’ve embraced.

    You still have a week left to sign up and support Necrobiotic on kickstarter by visiting: kickstarter.com/projects/pennyforatale/necrobiotic

    You can also follow along with everything Penny for a Tale is doing by heading over to pennyforatale.com

    And give Mitch a follow on Twitter @penny_tale

    Meet The Makers: Mattias Lilja (Ruins of Symbaroum 5e)

    Meet The Makers: Mattias Lilja (Ruins of Symbaroum 5e)

    Justin connects with Mattias Lilja, co-creator and writer with Symbaroum to discuss bringing their award winning setting to 5e.

    New Rules, Same World
    Free League Games has just launched Symbaroum for 5e on kickstarter and have set to translate their work of the dark forest into the more familiar mainstream ruleset.

    In our discussion we talk about Mattias’ history with playing Dungeons & Dragons to forming a publishing company to make games of his own. We later go over the intricate challenges of converting such a fully formed and robust game into the 5e ruleset, and what changes needed to be done to the game while preserving the core intentions. We also use this conversation to open up about the importance of having a discussion with your players about the settings you play in and the intentions you have with your games.

    Check Out Symabroum 5e
    The Kickstarter is almost over but you can check out The Ruins of Symbaroum by visiting their kickstarter page at kickstarter.com/projects/1192053011/ruins-of-symbaroum-for-5e

Absolutely amazing!!!

This podcast is a must listen to if you're into tabletop RPGs or just a good all around story to be told. I stumbled onto these guys because I wanted to hear game play on DC comics adventures rpg, and now I think I've listened to almost every episode like twice. Also code name Black Sounds really fun. Could you send me some info about this system? Amazing job guys and gals.

Thrilling, Chilling, And Spine-Tinglingly Hilarious

These Warriors Are Terrible is an amazing podcast to listen to, not only for a great laugh, but also as an introduction to table top RPGs. They take great care in making sure that their audience, whether they may be new to table top RPGs or grizzled veterans, is well informed, as well as thoroughly entertained.
Once you start listening to These Warriors Are Terrible, you'll be on the edge of your seat, excited for the next episode, and begging for more. Prepare audience, for fun filled adventures into sci-fi settings, fantasy lands, and the crazed minds of These Warriors Are Terrible.

Super fun

This is by far the most entertaining podcast I've subscribed to. Anybody with even a passing interest in tabletop roleplaying should give this a listen.
