In this episode I talk with the people behind the RP Haven about how to build the best RPG club ever. RP Haven was born over 10 years ago when a bunch of friends decided that they liked spreading the word of RPGs around. They started gathering at public venues and inviting new people. Then they started to share what they had learned and started to grow. Now they have over 600 members and some of the best ideas you can think of. If you are interested in helping the hobby grow, Garry Harper and David Coulter have some advice worth listening to. You can find a transcript of this podcast for free on our Ko-fi page.

This podcast is made for people like you. Thank you for being there. Welcome to the GMS Podcast episode 429 a podcast about the people who make and the people who play tabletop board games and roleplaying games.   I am Paco García, your host and I am joined by the ever amazing Chris Dias with a very special guest:  Ignacy Trzewiczek, to talk about Dune: House Secrets.   Ignacy is the designer of many really good and crunchy games and co-designer of Dune: House Secrets, a game that has been received with some very good ratings and some very bad ratings. The bad ratings tend ot have truly ridiculous reasons for being there, though, so they are not trustworthy. Mind you, some of the high ones are also sparse of information.   In this episode we got go ask him about the licensing process, how the game plays, why use an app and also about those reviews I mentioned in the paragraph above.   To find more about Dune: House Secrets: https://dune.portalgames.pl/en Check the BoardgameGeek page: https://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/329713/dune-house-secrets/ratings?rated=1&comment=1 Hope you enjoy the interview!

This episode features an interview with Christoffer Sevaldsen, author and designer of Black Void, a terrific RPG I read last year that made to the top 10 list.   It took me a while to read the book because it is pretty huge, but there isn’t a single page that is not worth reading. Being one of the most Planescape games I have read since Planescape, I think it has a lot to offer and people should pay a lot of attention to it.   I wanted to ask Christoffer about the origins, how he’s developed the game, what was the idea behind the setting and mechanics and what’s going to happen from now on.
