    Tanares-The Preview!

    This week we're taking a special look at Dragori Games' newest Kickstarter, Tanares! Check out the show and follow the links below for more information on what this new 5th Edition TTRPG setting has to offer! 
    *One slight correction I noticed upon editing the episode-the Lost Magic Researcher and Courage Domain are class options for existing 5e classes, not wholly separate classes of their own.

    Tales from Castle Rocks Fall Pt. 1-Inspiration!

    Tales from Castle Rocks Fall Pt. 1-Inspiration!

    Welcome back to Rocks Fall! Your home for the best creator interviews, game reviews, and RPG news!
    Sometimes we all get tired of run of the mill fantasy adventures that are so prevalent in the tabletop world. Luckily there are ways to break out of the norm, but a Game Master may need a little inspiration to get the concept of a different world to play in just right. I look for inspiration in a lot of the things I read, play and watch, and I think ideas present in some video games are great places to start getting ideas for themes that don’t often come up in your generic tabletop games. Today I’d like to focus in on some of my favorite role-playing video games that have inspired me to add unique flavor to my homebrew games. I really hope these help get your creative juices flowing as well!
    Let me know what your thoughts are on these, and I’d love to hear what other video games give you all inspiration for the tabletop games you play. Happy gaming, friends!

    DRAGONRAID-The Review!

    DRAGONRAID-The Review!

    Welcome back to Rocks Fall! Your home for the best creator interviews, game reviews, and RPG news!
    You know... every so often Devon comes across a game he doesn't like (looking at you, World of Darkness), but this one may take the cake. Wrapped up in a pretty red box with decent production value lies probably the most distasteful game that still, surprisingly, holds a spot on the gaming shelf. This week, Devon reviews:
    DRAGONRAID Adventure Learning System: Building Warriors for Spiritual Battle!

    Omicron Protocol 2-Developing a Game!

    Omicron Protocol 2-Developing a Game!

    As a lot of people in the TTRPG world may know, Matt, AKA, The Pickled Dragon, is in need of some help due to medical issues that have recently come up. His lovely family has set up a GoFundMe to help support them through this time and I'd consider it a personal favor if you did what you could to help out, even if it is just to share the campaign. Remember, we can rebuild him!

MomOfEighteen ,

Great info!

Great info and interviews!

Mark Delaware ,

Love it!

This show is short and sweet. Little scoops into the table top games with great detail into the games and processes that take place in order to create them. Jumped in on episode 22 just to immediately fall in love with the game they were discussing. More so since I'm a lover of all things zombie and all things apocalypse. The host also does a great job of guiding the discussing and asking natural questions based on the place the conversation is in. Very well done and very high quality. 10/10

Irrel ,

Amazing interviews and reviews!

I'm loving the new direction the podcast is taking. They have some great interviews and reviews of tabletop items I'm dying to try now! The host is knowledgeable, inclusive and kind. I can't wait to see what else they have in store!
