Play • 53 min

Episode 7: This week in the pub author, reviewer and TTRPG-er Ryan Howse and I discuss the interesting similarities and fundamental differences between fantasy writing for novels and table top role playing games. 

Ryan Howse is the author of The Steel Discord ( a magi-tech train heist), The Alchemy Dirge (Noir/Fantasy/Crime set in the same world as The Steel Discord), and Red in Tooth and Claw (a wilderness survival/fantasy/horror). 

Here's what Ryan thinks you should be checking out right now.

Indie: Mothership RPG, Burning Wheel RPG, 7th Sea 1st edition RPG, Nice Marines RPG, The Origin of Birds in the Footprints of Writing by Raymond St. Elmo, The Mold Farmer by Rick Claypool, and Legacy of the Brightwash by Krystle Matar
