Rakham Vale is an RPG inspired by the work of iconic artist Arthur Rakham. In this episode we have an interview with co-creator, Brian Saliba. This podcast is made for people like you. Thank you for being there. Welcome to the GMS Podcast episode 435 a podcast about the people who make and the people who play tabletop board games and roleplaying games. If you would like to participate or sponsor this podcast, or if you would like to send us your questions or comments, get in touch. You can email me on podcast@gmsmagazine.com or find me in Twitter as @gmsmagazine. and Chris is @diasexmachina And please, leave a review about the podcast in whatever platform you listen. It really helps a lot and it means even more to me. Thank you. When the world was one hundred years younger, during the Golden Age of British Book Illustration, Arthur Rackham and his paint box gave birth to some of the most transportive, iconic, and magical images of all time. His work brought to life characters and settings from famous fairy tales, ancient mythology, and timeless classics. In Rackham Vale these images are given new life for use in your tabletop role-playing games. Rackham’s characters, creatures, and scenes become NPCs, villains, and a hidden-vale, sandbox setting that can be dropped into any RPG campaign that could do with a touch of magic, mystery, and old-time weirdness. In addition to high adventure, weird creatures, dark sorcery, and oodles of riddling, tricksy, ribald fairy folk, you’ll find: 154 pages and 100+ Rackham illustrations. An original map by Joe N. Brown. An original factions graphic that charts relationships for easy reference. Dozens of adventure hooks. A fully illustrated bestiary of 24 new creatures based on Rackham's artwork. Tables for generating new settlements and creatures that fit the setting. A preparation checklist for GMs. Content that prioritizes accessibility and utility. Stats for OSE, although the setting is compatible with and easily adapted to other systems.   Product Specs 154 pages, A5-size, color throughout Thank you for listening. It truly is wonderful to have you there and genuinely appreciated.

Games are made of a lot of things and the bundle of them all can become a lot of things too. Many times it has been told that they can be works of art, but can they?

Paris Gondo is an RPG about the joy of getting rid of what you don’t need and drags you down. I have known about this game since before it came out and had the enormous pleasure of playing it when it was still under development. Now, after a few months of further tweaking and some great improvements, it’s out for you to enjoy and I wanted to talk to Kalum about it because… Well… you’ll find out because in the interview… Visit Paris Gondo’s website here. Here is what the author’s site has to say: A Simple Effective Play-Based Method To Banish Encumbrance Forever This game is a tongue-in-cheek tribute to encumbrance rules and other tropes found in beloved dungeon-crawling games.   It is a GM-less storytelling game for 3 to 6 players, designed to be played in a few hours with polyhedral dice and no preparation.   Players in this game embody Adventurers who, as a group called a Party, have reached the last level of a Dungeon and defeated the Boss who presided over it. Play starts as Adventurers discover Loot you create. The objects you decide your Adventurer carries home makes up what you pack as their Final Inventory.   If Adventurers hold on to possessions that spark joy, they might feel invigorated and satisfied for the rest of their existence, or at least until their next adventure. But letting go of less emotionally charged but useful Belongings might prove to be a deadly mistake for the Party on their Journey Home.   Content Replay It’s the transcript of a complete play session, edited for your enjoyment, to give you an overview of how the game works. This is inspired by the TRPG (Tabletalk Roleplaying Game) format popular in Japan.   Complete Rules This includes the rules and everything you need to play the game in step-by-step instructions. This game is a collaborative storytelling game. You can jump straight to the GonParis Method and follow its Six Steps without prior reading. However, it works better if one player facilitates your first session by reading the rules in advance.   Play-Aids and Card Decks You will find in the Appendix links to all the Play-aids and Card Decks in both JPG and PDF formats that you will need to play around a table.   Those are also included as a Miro board that you can copy to very easily play the game online.   Credits A game designed by Kalum from The Rolistes Podcast.   Rules Editor: Chris S. Sims.   Graphic design: Francita Soto and Kalum   Art by Bodie Hartley   This podcast is made for people like you. Thank you for being there.

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.
