    Episode 11: The Generative Power of Punching

    Changes are a-comin' in this episode of The Developer's Stories! We discuss contentions and dissatisfactions with current TDS systems in the wake of our last play session, then suggest a number of tweaks and fixes to alleviate these moments of tension. We also talk grad schools, city life/food, difficult video games, and how most things in the past were made with punching.

    9: Bill Murray's Toaster-Sized Hole (Let's Play TDS 2 Part I)

    We're back after a few weeks of hectic house-moviing to play TDS again! Logan BM's this time and he sends Emily and Zach (Blinky Stars and Dave, respectively) on a  vandalism-inspired adventure through a suspiciously dungeonous fabric supplier's warehouse. While playing, we talk magic and combat and the ways in which they've changed with each successive playtest. Enjoy!

    8: To Give a Fish a Spongebath

    Emily is back in this episode! She's been on enough episodes now for us to stop making a big deal about it, but she doesn't fall asleep so that's nice. We talk TDS Skill systems and the many revisions they've undergone, Lilith (an important foil to Zach's perception of Mr. B), quest-crafting, living in Seattle, and how Zach murders animals and then tries to get people to pay him for their bodies.

    New hosting site, new us! We're back to our regular format in this week's episode. Logan and Zach discuss new magical systems, NPC creation in RPGs, and a few ideas as to how "death" will work in the Devil's Syndicate universe. Also we start a counter for murdered ideas, henceforth known as the "Dead Baby List."
