Nicole Lindroos has been in gaming more than 25 years and for 20 of those years she has been running operations at Green Ronin and creating some of the most daring and interesting projects, not to mention her never-ending passion for a healthy and diverse RPG fandom.

Green Ronin now has a project republish the Book of Fiends for 5E, a book that delves into the nasty and truly horrific nature of evil in fantasy games. Written by Robert Schwalb, the author and creator of the Shadow of the Demon Lord, you can pretty much have guaranteed that the book will be as good and nasty as it can be.

interview_brie_beau_sheldon_sitethumb.jpg

Safety around a table is important for some people and Brie Beau Sheldon has been working at it, not just for RPGs but also for our own culture for a while. In this interview, I talk to him about his work.

Playing roleplaying games can be a tricky experience for some people, but with a bit of thought we can make sure everyone has the same amount of fun and enjoyment and the Script Change is a tool that aims exactly for that.

Unlike other tools like the X-Card, which are an “either/or” situation, the Script Change is a tool that allows players and GMs to decide how it’s going to be used during session zero and even during the game. Also, it has some more steps and sub-tools one can use.

On one of the most obvious ways to use it is during the session zero, when it can be decided how it’s going to be used and define limits and boundaries so people can use it in a way that won’t break the game for anyone, and also give the right clues when someone is not going according to plan before the damage is done and the gaming experience ruined.

Certainly worth a look!

Pelgrane Press has been a referent in the world of #TTRPGs for a very long time. They keep producing some amazing work and have some iconic games in their catalogue. But, who’s behind? That would be Cat Tobin!

This video has been produced for www.gmsmagazine.com. Please help our channel by subscribing and commenting and support our Patreon Campaign if you can: https://www.patreon.com/gmsmagazine

 

I got together with Cat to ask about how she runs Pelgrane and the ethos behind the company, including their approach to diversity, social justice and safety for everyone around the table.

 

With giants of the RPG world like Ken Hite, Robin D. Laws, Rob Heinsoo and Gareth Ryder-Hanrahan, they have produced game powered by the Gumshoe system (Trail of Cthulhu, Ashen Stars, Bubblegumshoe, Cthulhu Confidential, The Esoterrorists, Fear Itself, The Gaenan reach, Mutant City Blues, Night’s Black Agents, Timewatch and The Fall of Delta Green), there is a big responsibility on her shoulders!

Ngai’i, Yog-Sothoth… bring power over the frog-folk to your child down through the ages, your doathi descendant of The Croaking Voice! Ngai’i, bring the boggards, the Toad-Warriors, to heel, raze the swamp-forest and drive the grippli, the frog-people before me, children of Your indolent cousin Tsathoggua, give me the power of my doathi birthright!

From the dawn of primitive life, from the machinations of the Great Old Ones, comes the frog-folk, three races not well known from the corners of the Patchwork Planet of Porphyra! Written by Perry Fehr and published by Purple Duck Games, new Frogfolk of Porphyra contains original lore about these fascinating folk:
• The Boggards, aggressive toad-people who seek to dominate those near their territory with the strength of arms…
• The Doathi, descendants of the lieutenants of the Great Old Ones, sinister inheritors of power hidden amongst humanity…
• The Gripppli, tree-frog offshoot of the boggard race, curious forest-dwellers whose agile potential has hardly begun to be tapped…

Each race has options for racial traits, alternative racial characteristics, racial feats and full descriptions of their culture and place on the Patchwork Planet.

Sections include for your enjoyment, new spells used by these batrachian folk like call bugs, key and jewel, and plague of warts! New magic items like the batrachinomicon, the wartwand, and webskin armor. All included in Frogfolk of Porphyra!

So get your copy today of Frogfolk of Porphyra from the wart-skinned wizards at Purple Duck Games, where our games are what you want!

Hope you enjoy the show!

Lots of people want to write #LGBTQI characters in #TTRPG but don’t really know how to do it. In this episode, I talked to Steve Kenson, from Green Ronin Publishing about how to go about it in the safest possible way.

 

Whenever this topic comes up in Social networks, there are arguments with people - some people – complaining about it. But there are others who want to find out how to do it properly so their work can include more diversity and gain some richness.

Steve Kenson has a long history of writing for roleplaying games and is the author of Icons, Mutants & Masterminds and Blue Rose among others. During that time he has been a champion of diversity and equality within roleplaying games and produced some of the most inclusive material in RPG history.

But writing gay characters comes with some pitfalls for straight people, since writing gay characters can easily fall in tired and harmful stereotypes that have been going on for much too long. In this episode, we talk about what steps can one take to go about including LGBTQI characters in their roleplaying games, adventures or as characters in their gaming sessions.

ENPublishing released #JudgeDredd after a successful Kickstarter campaign and the game has seen some interesting releases added to it. So why aren’t more people into it?

This video has been produced for www.gmsmagazine.com. Please help our channel by subscribing and commenting and support our Patreon Campaign if you can: https://www.patreon.com/gmsmagazine

 

Judge Dredd has been a referent in the world of comic books since it came out over 40 years ago. Its criticism of social systems, the way it treats characters and some stunning scripts and artwork gained it some hardcore fans that love it.

And it has seen some very interesting #RPGs in the past too, including a metal bound hardback that was sold for a ton of money in eBay a few years ago.

I wanted to talk to Darren Pierce, since he has done a ton of work on the game and knows it rather well, and find out more about what the universe has to offer and why everyone should be more aware of this game.

Hope you enjoy the show!

Kickstarters are a really important part of TTRPG publishing and some companies depend on it. Shades of Vengeance is one of said companies with more than 50 projects on their backs. How do they do it?

When Ed Jowett started 6 years ago, he probably didn’t know he would have 50 Kickstarter projects under his belt in this period of time. And yet, here they are and they are doing very well at it.

 

To add spice to the sauce, they help other creators get going and also work on ezines, comic books and card games.

 

In this interview I managed to ask him a few questions (with the help of my cat) and find some information about his current Kickstarter about to end soon: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/shadesofvengeance/the-era-zone-2020?ref=profile_created
