IPMM 71: LongCon, Faith and Religion in Games

“Quick – poop and flee!”

Dave talks about going to the inaugural Chicago LongCon and playing in Jen‘s great three-session Monsterhearts game.  Then the cast discusses religion, faith, and inscrutable power in general in games.  Is faith something that can be explored in games?  How can you bring a sense of the mysterious/numinous into your game?

IPMM 51 – Bonus Episode: Skill and Magic Systems

“Submachine Gun: The Submachine-Gunning”

As Dave and Yanni prepare to go off to Indy for GenCon, we’re tossing out a relatively short round-table with three of our hosts.  In this episode, we talk about D&D Next, then about skill and magic systems in role-playing games in general.  We come to the following conclusions:

  • We like skill systems that let heroic characters do stuff
  • We like magic systems that are open-ended, not ones that make you pick from pre-generated lists of spells

Also, at one point, Dave refers to “Old School Revolution” – it’s actually “Old School Renaissance” [Sorry. –Ed].
