    Design Episode 45 :: Ice to Meet You

    In our first completely remote episode, we listen to our Patrons' suggestions and just make some effin' monsters! We also spend some time chilling with our least-played path and find ourselves really warming up to it.

    Design Episode 44 :: Stoopid Attacks

    Step 6 takes flight in Episode 44. We take a hard look at our first alternate step for Zealotry. Are wings broken in RPGs? We're about to find out. Citadel also gets its turn under the microscope, and we discover that it's already pretty good, but there's still plenty of room to improve.

    Design Episode 43 :: Hecka Dooms

    In this episode, the mighty Doug joins Liam and Josh as we wade into Step 6, focusing on Death with a sprinkle of theology as we talk about the direction and purpose of Zealotry going forward.


    Thanks everyone for your patience! This one was released a little off-schedule, but after the 16th, we will be back to our regular release schedule as long as Covid 19 stays on the periphery.

Interesting take on the creative process

Role playing games are always something which interests me and this shows how you can make them better in some ways.
