Not So Long Ago, At A Con Very Nearby…
Game designers often get treated like punching bags, punching bags full of answers to all of our innermost questions about our favorite games. “Why don’t you fix grapple?” “Have you ever considered ClassX?” “I really wasn’t a big fan of this thing you did, why was it so different from your other stuff?” Are all things passerby’s and interviewers bombard them with all of the time, but what about just asking your favorite game industry folks what their favorite band is, or what they eat for breakfast? Well that’s what I’m aiming to do with this short interview series from Winter Fantasy.
This year I got a chance to sit down and talk to some of my favorite people, one of them being author/game designer Rob Schwalb. For those of you who may not know of him, he’s an enigma wrapped in metal, covered in mayonnaise, stowed away in a hobo’s front pocket. He’s probably most well known throughout the gaming community for all of his work with D&D 4e and also being one of the guys behind D&D Next.
So…let’s sit down and bore into Rob’s brain in part 1 of this interview, we’ll only ask him a few questions about gaming, and we won’t even pester him about D&D Next! Tune in next week for the follow up too!
A big congrats and good luck to our friends at Roll20 who are taking the plunge and making Roll20 their full-time gig! Now, on with the show!
Winter Fantasy is coming, Haste episode from the show this year, will be covering who is there and what is going on. LFR, PF Society, D&DNext, lots more.
Seth Roby (@TALlama) has a response to last week’s “How to break up with your gaming group” question. He says we really flubbed the answer. Obviously, we disagree, but see his response for an alternate view!
No announcements this week, aside from our kick ass Baldur’s Cheer, Baldur’s Gate holiday contest we’ve got going on. Aside from that, it’s time to get on with the show! Now, back to 30(ish) minutes or less! Enjoy.
Spread Cheer and Win!
