Episode 4 – Interview with Rob Heinsoo of 13th Age in Glorantha

by

13th Age in Glorantha squareRob and Paul interview game designer (and old friend) Rob Heinsoo about his delightful tabletop RPG 13th Age and his Kickstarter drive to create a Glorantha expansion (that’s RuneQuest’s setting for those playing Grognard Bingo).

Spoiler alert: He’s funded. Super-secret spoiler alert: You can still get in on the action until 10/13/14.

We’re hoping to get Mr. Heinsoo’s game design partner Jonathan Tweet on Nerdhole soon, preferably for an Oxford-style debate on who came up with the idea for the Escalation Die. Tune in!

Audio note/apology: Because of geomantic interference from Rob Heinsoo’s lair, the audio in this episode has a few strange artifacts and other netherworldly manifestations.
