For this new episode of the podcast, we try something a little experimental with roleplaying game designer and writer Ed Jowett based in the UK. We had a few conversations over time to follow the behind the scenes of his Kickstarter crowdfunding project to support the finance of an expansion to his science-fiction based game; Era: The Consortium.


This is a two part episode and there is still time for you to check out his Kickstarter project. For anyone out there fan of science-fiction universes, interested in roleplaying games, or simply in finding out more details about running a crowdfunding campaign, it's definitely worth a listen.

In the episode, we talk about the progress of the campaign in the first two weeks, as well as the other games Ed designed at Shades of Vengeance; Era: Lyres and Era: The Empowered. We also discuss Ed's inspirations for game mechanics, science-fiction and where he started playing video games and tabletop roleplaying games.
