A Seattle-based podcast about games, comics, superheroes, zombies, robots, wizards, dinosaurs, and other things relevant to your interests. We're SJW FTW, and we’ve been nerding out about nerd stuff since way before everybody was a nerd.
We spoke with author and game designer Jonathan Tweet about his new book Grandmother Fish, which tells the story of evolution for pre-K kids. We also delved into his storied history as a game designer and got some terrific inside stories from his super-smart daughter Tessa.
We’ll report more when we get the all-clear from the designers, but they’re still keeping hard info under wraps. We can say this: 13th Age in Glorantha marries rules to setting almost perfectly. It’s going to be great.
Last Friday, Friend of the Hole and 13th Age designer Rob Heinsoo posted one of the funniest monster write-ups I’ve ever seen–and I read through quite a few old April Fools’ editions of Dragon back in the day. He calls them Coin Zombies, and dropping loot is an integral part of their attack routine. Even if you don’t know 13th Age rules, check it out just to see the method behind the madness.
