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.

Interview with Steve Grodzicki

Still working on my interview skills, this one is a bit of a rambler. Detailed discussion of his game, Low Fantasy Gaming, is interspersed with talk about the weather and issues I had recording across time zones with Glynn. The interview with Glynn, of Monkey Blood Designs, won’t be making it to the podcast as the audio is unrecoverable.

Even though I’m really enjoying the interviews I’ll be posting a regular episode by the first which will discuss PBEM/PBP gaming, specifically because I just started a PBP game over on Google Plus. I may do a few more interviews next month if time allows though, as I really enjoy them, and I think the additional content can only be a help to the podcast. Thanks for listening.
