Episode 298: Now We’re Just Gygaxing

June 22nd, 2018 | Robin

Having both recently moved big projects off our plates and into post-production, we convene in the Gaming Hut to look at lessons and surprises from our design work on Vampire: the Masquerade 5th Edition and The Yellow King Roleplaying Game.

In the Horror Hut, we respond to the wish of Patreon backer Stephen Perpitch-Harvey to talk about jinn.

Among My Many Hats has Robin donning the headgear of an ancient horse clan to talk about Six Ages: Ride Like the Wind, the new iOS game follow-up to King of Dragon Pass, featuring nine novels worth of his writing.  Send your Swords and Bows to the pre-order now.

Finally the Consulting Occultist opens a perilous tome to tell us about Reginald Scot and The Discoverie of Witchcraft.

    Is that a vast Plain of Huts, or a vast Plane of Huts? Because those are very different mental images…

    It is a quite interesting podcast 🙂
    I feel a ‘lil bit tempted to run around and quote ya that V5 is all about playing Vampire Batman ;D

    Tho, on a more serious question.
    The scrapped segment and possible future book about designing a V5 city setting sounded quite cool. Will you be working on it for WW and continue doing good stuff for V5?

    Hey guys, I love the show even though I’m not really in a position to patronize . . . yet.

    I thought this article was amusingly synchronous – apparently a worker at a GM plant in Cleveland found a pile of *actual* suppressed transmissions!

    I am definitely interested in the Android version for Six Ages, and have picked up King of Dragon Pass in the meantime. Both games sound like an accessible way into the sometimes daunting Gloranthan setting.
