It was our great pleasure to sit down with Fred Hicks of Evil Hat and Jim Butcher, author of The Dresden Files.  It’s a rare treat when Fred and Jim, longtime friends, are actually on the same side of the mic together. Troll, Kevin, and Jen talk with them about their gaming history, their friendship, and what dealing with the Dresden Files has taught them about themselves and their friendship. Enjoy.

Dresden Files Actual Play Session 1

Posted in Dresden Files RPG, Play Sessions, RPG Only on September 4th, 2010 by Kevin Weiser

After a month and a half of cons, vacations, natural disasters and technical difficulties, we finally get a chance to sit down and play us some Dresden Files RPG by Evil Hat. This first session is our second try at city creation. The first time we decided on Anchorage, AK, and this time around we go a very different direction with Washington, D.C. A few changes have happened since our last run though a game. We got Jen back on the show as a regular, we lost Dan due to Real Life (aka. work schedule conflicts, but he’ll still be doing the Comics Cast) and for this game we’ve got the return of Troll, whom you may remember from our Dread Halloween Special.

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.
