    907 Finding My Blend: System Fluid

    907 Finding My Blend: System Fluid

    While I hope this episode stands alone, it follows on from my earlier discussion in Episode 5 about the importance of worlds. Today, I want to talk about system. By this, I mean the shape of the whole game including the World but also the choice of Rules and the Methodology we choose. I am working from the general, macro scale down towards specifics. Today I want us to see the whole system first.

    Thanks to Evil Jeff for his call-ins!

    906 Mondays In Mystamyr

    906 Mondays In Mystamyr

    Six weeks ago, I stated that I had arrived at a place of change and growth. I had turned 50 years of age and was beginning to wonder if I’d ever become the Game Master, Referee, and Creative World Builder that I have been meaning to get around to becoming since I was about 10 years old. I have had to learn to let go of old unhelpful patterns of thinking and rechart my pathway back to the hobby. So, as we reach the six episode of the series - what is to me a natural waypoint on my journey - I’m asking myself: how’s it going?

    Given the highly introspective nature of the past five episodes, I feel that the best place to stop and look at her progress I have made lies in the one game I have been running consistently for the past twelve or so weeks. Let’s delve into the story of my very own classic fantasy campaign set within my very own fantasy world.

    905 Finding My Blend: Fantastic Worlds

    905 Finding My Blend: Fantastic Worlds

    Evil Jeff wants to know: "When are we going to hear about Webster’s style?" 

    It’s actually a little more complex - at least in MY head - than it might at first seem. What do I want from my fantasy roleplaying games? There are three basic elements that I need to consider and today I want to explore what is for me the most important of all: the World.

    Many thanks to Evil Jeff for calling in and inspiring this episode... and maybe one or two more to follow.

Che to the Rescue!

Che is an amazing host. Not only will you get informative and in-depth discussions on many RPG subjects, you will also gain an insight into Che as a GM inspiring a new generation of gamers. Don't stop with the podcast however, make sure you check out the Roleplay Rescue blog and his Patreon. As a returning gamer his thoughts, discussions and interviews have been an inspiration. Game on Che!

Role player rescued!

Great podcast! Aimed at former players (& those looking to get into the hobby) who are interested in ways back into RPG’s.
Lots of take away information and actionable ideas. Some fantastic interviews and discussions.
Recommended!

Great show

Roleplay Rescue charts a course through the world of gaming and gamers, old and new alike. I very much enjoy the hosts' honesty and clear thinking, so different from some of the much bigger RPG podcasts which can get a little overbearing. A firm favourite on my list!
