Synopsis: We finished a playthrough of Sense of the Sleight of Hand Man, a Call of Cthulhu campaign set in the Dreamlands, so like with every campaign we finish, this episode is a post-mortem of it. I discuss how I approached running the campaign and the players talk about what they got out of it. We also have shout outs and anecdotes.

We’re still playtesting Red Markets and Ruin. We talk about the pains, progress, and lessons we have learned so far. It’s a lively discussion so if you want to geek out about RPG game design, this is the podcast for you.

Interview with Deborah Davitt

deborah-davittWay back in Episode 57 (Read the Fine Print), Tom gave a shoutout to a story on Fanfic.net.  It was a Mass Effect fanfiction that Tom became a huge fan of, as well as the author, Deborah Davitt.  Now, some years later, this very talented writer has a brand new novel that truly deserves your time.  It is called The Valkyrie, the first book in the Edda Earth series.  Set in an alternate history setting, Rome never fell and magic and the Gods are real.  In this segment, Tom interviews Ms. Davitt, to get the lowdown on this unique story, the first in a series of books.
