Because again, we can’t seem to stay in order, here’s Episode 77.

In this installment, Duncan, our resident Pokémon expert (Poké-expert?) talks about Pokémon X and Y.

Then, Yanni talks board games, Caitlin tells us about her adventures in transhumanism, and we cover a few recent comic book and movie releases (and talk about some of the problems with modern 3D movies).

IPMM 78: Established Campaign Settings

“In the dark grimness of the grim-dark, there is only grim darkness.”

In this episode we talk about playing in existing worlds, including settings created specifically for games (e.g. Forgotten Realms, Warhammer 40K) and those from licensed IP (e.g. Firefly, Star Wars Expanded Universe).

Stuff in this episode:

  • Warhammer 40K fluff is epic.
  • How is Forgotten Realms like a neutron star?
  • How do different creative agendas interact/conflict with established settings?
  • How do you play in an established universe without running afoul of “fluff lawyers”?
  • Where should you set your campaign within an established setting?

Other relevant links:

(Yes, we realize we’re out of order again. “IPMM 77: Pokemon” will probably be posted after our next AP.)
