Ep 4, Religion in RPGs

We talk about Politics in RPGs all the time, so why not faith as it applies to fantasy (or even scifi) world creation? Most of the time we create plenty of gods, but not religions for those gods to inhabit. This long rambling podcast is sort of a dissertation on the why and how of creating fully formed fantasy faiths. I also talk about the religions I’ve been working on for my Sanja Valley setting. I”ve returned to the hour long format, and I have another project that should drop on this podcast in the next month or so. Thanks for listening.

Petty Gods, a really awesome collection of Lesser Gods, I contributed Neco!

Ep 3, Play By Message Gaming

Hello, so this is a short one, I’m thinking I’ll switch to doing two 30-min podcasts a month. The new format should fit in better with my schedule while giving more regular content to anyone actually listening. Let me know what you think below.

Anyway, this podcast is on PBM or Play By Message gaming. It is a broad overview of Play By Mail, Play By Email, and Play By Post gaming, something I’ve turned to as a practical solution to actually running a game within my time constraints. Here are some links to sites I discuss in the episode.
