Discussion Episode 17: Player & GM Authority

Posted in Discussions, Non-Actual Play, RPG Only on March 14th, 2010 by Kevin Weiser

The crew sits down to discuss the big issue we’ve been avoiding for the entire time this podcast has been around: Player and GM Authority. We break down the different kinds of authority and cite examples of how different games use them. Then we discuss how the traditional model of authority (most of it being in the hands of the GM) can cause problems.

Interview 9: Ryan Macklin and Leonard Balsera on the Dresden Files RPG

Posted in Dresden Files RPG, Interview, Non-Actual Play, RPG Only on January 30th, 2010 by Kevin Weiser

Due to some lucky circumstances, I managed to land an interview earlier this week with Ryan Macklin and Lenny Balsera. This was a serendipitous event, as Evil Hat had just released their official press release announcing the release date and info about the Dresden Files RPG. I sit down with these two and BS about the challenges of creating a game from the Dresden Files license, then we dive into some of the nitty gritty about how FATE was used to create the world of Harry Dresden.
