    Me and Steve Talk RPGs with Jay Little

    Me and Steve Talk RPGs with Jay Little

    Today we’re going to do something a little bit different. We’re on a short break and before we return with new recordings of our tabletop sessions but before we return we wanted to bring to your attention our friends over at “Me and Steve Talk RPGs” 
    We’re helping each out by hosting a feed swap. A few weeks ago they hosted the first episode of our Symbaroum campaign, At The Foot of the Titans, and now this week we’re returning the favour by hosting an interview that they conducted with, TTRPG system designer, Jay Little.
    Me and Steve Talk RPGs was born out of those conversations that inevitably happen in the parking lot or driveway outside AFTER the gaming sessions. The two Steve’s host a podcast that is a grab bag of TTRPG related topics, stories, tips and tricks with interviews with makers and shakers from our community. Just like us they release new episodes every Tuesday so if you like what you’re about to hear check them out and follow and subscribe to their podcast wherever it is you like to listen. 
    In this episode, from the Me and Steve Talk RPGs podcast, the two Steves meet with Jay Little, a system designer who has worked on Warhammer Fantasy Rolplaying, FFG Star Wars, and also designed the 2d20 system for Modiphious, which you might recall powered our Star Trek: Adventures games… so he’s left an indelible mark on the ttrpg world. 
    Enjoy the listen, and we’ll be back next week when we return from our extended holiday break with our own actual play session playing Darla Burrow’s “Dear Great Cuthulu, PLEASE Stop Giving Me Super Powers!”

    Symbaroum Post-Game with Mattias Johnsson Haake

    Symbaroum Post-Game with Mattias Johnsson Haake

    We wrap up our incredible gaming session of Symbaroum by inviting back to the table Symbaroum’s co-creator, Mattias Johnsson Haake.
    This conversation was recorded fresh of the heels of our August recording sessions so while the players and GM knew how things went later in the campaign Mattias himself had only listened to the first two episodes. But after all the fun we had playing his game we absolutely had to invite him to join us for our post-game debrief.
    This hour will not be your typical interview with a game creator. We heap love on him and gush about the game and share our favorite story point and Mattias opens up about the design choices and some of his favourite themes in the game and how Symbaroum formed into what it has become.
    This is the final episode, for now, in our 12 part campaign of Symbaorum. If you haven’t listened to the complete playlist we highly suggest you go back into our feed and listen to them all before this interview, because we are going to spill the beans all over your spoiler alert.

    Symbaroum 10: Tea With Witches

    Symbaroum 10: Tea With Witches

    Thistle Hold is saved, for now. The barricade has been secured around the sinkhole and the townsfolk continue with their lives.

    But only Elindra, Iandromei, and Veurd know about Anadea’s warnings about a darkness that threatens Thistle Hold before she was swallowed up by the sinkhole.
    Seeking answers, and lacking knowledge, the trio set out to meet with the two mysterious witches who arrived yesterday moments before the Bronze Well spoke.
    This morning there’s more than tea that’s brewing…

    Symbaroum 09: The Road So Far...

    Symbaroum 09: The Road So Far...

    The Beast Clan has retreated into the forest, the town puts up barriers and believes it is safe. But we know better…
    Before our trio begins their investigation into the mystery surrounding the woman at the Fern Tavern, they look back on where they’ve been and how they got here.
    More than a Recap The Terrible Warriors exists to help empower you to feel confident enough to play and run the games we enjoy here. Which is why this is much more than a recap episode, it is as much a part of our "actual play” as the rest of the story we have presented.
    Every GM needs to have a session, especially after a major battle or a story arc that has concluded, to take stock and let their players recount the events in their own words.
    A recap session like this helps equip the GM with specific information about what their players are interested in and what, up to this point, has stuck with them the most. And it equips the players with a renewed sense of motivation and inspiration as they remember why they are invested in seeing this story through.

Always a great time.

From the darkest corners of your mind with Call of Cthulhu and Neon Genesis Evangelion, to ridiculous with Spirit of the Century or Wild Talents Silver age, this group is fun and entertaining.
I can honestly say I have listened to all the episodes at least twice, if not more. With edition of 'The Edmonton Crew' this show has done some amazing work and keeps me wanting more.

Love it

I only recently started listening to the terrible warriors, but I fell in love from the start. I don't listen to every campaign. But I have discovered gaming systems that I really want to try, thanks to the terrible warriors. So often, they remind me of the games that I play with my friends. I always get a good laugh when I listen to them.

Really Fun!

Terrible Warriors shows how different fandom scenarios can be gamed as a D&D adventure. Entertaining sessions in various genres.
