Pod Chatter Episode 15 – Religions in Gaming

Whether you’ve ever thought deeply about using religion in your tabletop roleplaying game or not, there’s something in this episode you’ll enjoy. We talk about gods, we talk about religions and we talk about rituals and prayers. Religion can be a touchy subject, but it doesn’t have to be, especially in our imagination. I do hope that you enjoy this episode.

Sandbox Episode 26 – Crater Colony

In this episode, Christopher and I give a sports book hostess a chance to strike it rich in a low gravity cage match. Then, we add terrestrial eclipses, times of introspection, a monolith and an old statue fallen to the moon. This don’t go as you would imagine, but there are so many wonderful ideas in this episode!

Pod Chatter Episode 14 – The Three Act Story Structure

In this episode, Christopher and I discuss using the three act story structure in games. Specifically, prepping and running games using this structure as a framework for the stories told at the game table. I think it’s a great tool. I hope you enjoy listening to this episode. Also, Christopher defines an orgy for us. Good stuff.
