Red Dead & Dragons

Tim and Daniel analyze what the acclaimed Western sandbox videogame Red Dead Redemption 2 took from D&D and what your campaign can take from it.

We also discuss Bryce Lynch’s review of the game here: https://tenfootpole.org/ironspike/?p=6371.

WE STAN (Issue 1)

This is the new superhero RPG hotness. Listen as four heroes unite to fight GARBAGEMAN, Neo-Birmingham’s newest villain.

You can get the rules here (if you become a patron).

WE STAN is a snappy game that produces an actual storyboarded comic book each time you play (no drawing talent necessary).

It uses panoptical GM rulings to adjudicate superheroic action rather than using extensive rules and keywords. Its GM-facing procedures create dramatic arcs while still preserving player freedom and encouraging creative problem solving.
