S3-E10: Gygaxian Rock Opera

This week we welcome Benjamin Feehan onto the show to talk about his experience with the campaign idea of “‘What if there was a party of just bards that put on performances and delved dungeons to pay their bills?”

In addition to covering the ramifications of running an all-bard party, we talk about things like wrapping a campaign around a central idea or theme, necessary mechanics for doing Performances, and how one could best make use of the 13th Age system to further explore this idea.

A few of the other things Ben has worked on are the Grapple Gun Universe books, Jadepunk, and Shadowcraft: The Glamour Wars.

S3-E09: Iconic World

This week we give you an overview of the world of Ta’nar, which is a Gygaxian fantasy setting that, while being the brainchild of JM, we’ve all had a hand in creating. It’s also the setting we’ll be placing all our Random Encounters that we brainstorm together, as well as any other published materials we may come up with.

We are currently in the process of putting together the past Random Encounters into PDF form in anticipation of reaching our first Patron Goal. We are so close!
