Episode 72: Suckytown was Already Taken

January 17th, 2014 | Robin

Seize the narrative steering wheel as a player in the Gaming Hut, where we discuss techniques to productively exercise character agency.

Uncover the layers beneath the layers of the History Hut, in which we find gaming and story fodder in multispectral palimpsest recovery.

In Ken and Robin Talk To Someone Else, we speak together to two someone elses, Cat Tobin and Simon Rogers of Pelgrane Press, who discuss the logistical lessons from the now-fulfilled Hillfolk Kickstarter.

Then we rev up Ken’s Time Machine to, at the behest of new sponsor Sand and Steam Productions, save the Viking colony of Vinland from extinction.

Yes, we said Sand and Steam Productions, now launching the Kickstarter for their Fate-powered mythic Norse RPG, War of Metal and Bone.



Also clambering aboard the sponsor train is Atlas Games, who in a dappled fairyland warehouse discovered the need to liquidate still perfectly fabulous copies of Once Upon Time 2nd Edition, as the 3rd Edition glimmers on the horizon. Take advantage of this special deal for Ken and Robin listeners!

    A few questions:

    1. I recently came across the Raymond Chandler story “The King in Yellow” and was surprised to find that it was actually a reference to Chambers. Where in your wanderings, literary or otherwise, have you come across unexpected references to Weird fiction to your delight and/or horror?

    2. This is for Ken: Did you pick Savage Worlds for DAR? If so, what prompted your choice?

    Thank you both.

    The Pelgrane accents rock

    Re the different approaches to international shipping with Kickstarter. I think Monte Cook Games’ backers with the Strange will have a huge shock when they see how little the $10 shipping credit offsets their shipping costs. MCG online store are charging between $50 to $150 for different shipping options to the UK for one book. This could lead international backers at the higher levels- who have already paid out $100s paying $100s more over the lifetime of the Kickstarter just to receive hard copies.
