In the last few weeks we have been chatting a lot in Facebook about relationships in games with a lot of people deciding they don’t want to have relationship in games because… erm… dunno… lots of reasons that make no sense to me, but hey… to each their own.

Tim Korlewski, author and game designer of wargames and roleplaying games, asked me about it in Facebook and we decided to have a chat about it and see if we could make some interesting talking points about the subject.

And here is the episode!

Hope you enjoy the show!

This quick guide to 10 illnesses that could be used in your game to make things harder for your players in a longer term way, rather than a wound that you can heal in no time with your magic.

Please help this channel subscribing to it and leaving a comment.

Most of us have suffered from illnesses in the past and we know how terribly debilitating it can be. Sometimes we have to spend a little bit of time in hospital to get them treated.

In this video I talk about how some of these could be used and why in your #ttrpg to make the character lives a bit harder.

Game On Tabletop is a fairly new crowdfunding platform that was born out of the desire to cater to the board and roleplaying games community. Is it worth considering?

Considering that games have been a huge amount of the money that has gone through the Kickstarter doors, having a business that caters specifically for us, game backers and game creators sounds like a good idea to me.

I spoke with Laura Hoffmann, spokesperson for the company and managed to ask her a whole bunch of questions about the tools the platform offers and whether it can offer an experience worth investing in as a board game or roleplaying game creator.

Hope you enjoy the interview!

Blades and Blasters is a book created by Seth Tomlinson that funded in Kickstarter in 2018 and in 2019 has seen the light. It mixes science fiction and fantasy. But does it do it well? 

As it happens, the book seems to be full of great ideas and with some 14 alien races, technology, weapons, starships and a bestiary, it could be a great addition to my game evenings.

Enjoy the interview!

CONSENT_IN_Gaming_thumb.jpg

Consent in #Gaming is a new free product from Monte Cook Games about the need to have consensual content and interaction in roleplaying games. This is my review.

This podcast has been produced for www.gmsmagazine.com. Please help us by subscribing to the channel and liking/commenting on the videos.

#MonteCookGames has a enormous history of writing fantastic #RPG content. Now, Sean K. Reynolds and Shanna Germain have produced a 13 pages #pdf guide about the topic of consent around the gaming table.

As can be expected, it has created a fair amount of controversy, so I decided to take a look and record this #review.

I have to say, I know #seankreynolds and #shannahgermain, so my view is a bit biased, but the quality of this book and the importance of the content are undeniable.

You can download it from here: https://www.montecookgames.com/consent-in-gaming/

Let me know what you think!

kings_of_war_background.jpg

Kings of War is raging now in Kickstarter and should be funded by the time you hear this podcast. ¿Should you back it too?

In this interview I go in a bit deeper with its author, Ennie winner Marc Langworthy and what the quick start rules misses. Aspects like character creation, magic, powers and advanced features of the rules system.

Hope you enjoy the show!

Lets_Play_Dungeons_and_Dragons_Behind_Bars.png

 

Let's Play: Dungeons & Dragons Behind Bars is a documentary by filmmaker Elizabeth de Kleer that takes a look at the inside of some jails in the USA and the effect that playing D&D has on some of the inmates.

Truly hope you enjoy this one and please, take a look at the Kickstarter. It is for one of the best causes I have ever seen in the world of RPGs.

Monica and Andrew Marlowe have been in my radar for a very long time  now. I have known them for years and their involvement in the world of RPGs has interested me. But who are they?

Well… we are about to find out. From their involvement in RPG Superstar and the Marlowe House games in Twitch, they have been doing a fair amount of work to get RPGs a good name and create content.

Monica and Andrew left me wishing podcast episodes could last hours!

Hope you enjoy!

Chivalry_Sorcery_-_the_Medieval_Role_Playing_Game.jpg

Chivalry & Sorcery is a game that saw light of day around 40 years ago and some people decided to fall in love with it. ¿Enough to be at it around 40 years later?

Well, this is indeed the case. When Steve Turner, from Britannia Game Design fell in love with Chivalry & Sorcery, he not just decided to play it, but also to keep at it for years and years and eventually buy the license so he could release more versions of the game and go to Kickstarter with the latest one.

So I interviewed Steve Turner to ask about what makes Chivalry & Sorcery a game worth investing in.

Hope you enjoy it!

Rachel Ventura has been a part of Legendary Games for a considerable length of time and managed the business development. Bu that does that mean?

With a successful Kickstarter on its way to publish Ultimate Kingdoms, a compilation of Ultimate books from the company’s catalogue, I wanted to talk to Rachel about the operation itself rather than just about the book.

Unsurprisingly, she knows exactly what she is talking about and the interview is quite revealing!

Hope you enjoy it as much as I did!
