A monster on the verge of eating an adventurer.


Thanks to Sean McCoy we can enjoy this interview with James Maliszewski about Empire of the Petal Throne. They cover a wide range of topics. “I wanted to talk to James about Tekumel, long campaigns, Barker and his tainted legacy, and where true ownership of an RPG setting lies.” Tekumel is such an unusal setting. Seemingly so thoroughly divorced from your typical tolkien rooted fantasy. James ran several sessions of Empire of the Petal throne for the TorontOSR peoples before embarking on his epic campaigns, a fun experience.

Kim Mohan was interviewed on the D&D podcast. He was a figure involved in Dungeons and Dragons I had never heard of, but there is apparently no one out there who has worked on Dungeons and Dragons longer than the man. He was a managing editor at TSR and then Wizards of the Coast. There are lots of great quotes. On Ed Greenwood: “For every word that he gives you, you feel like he’s holding fifty in reserve. And for every ten that he gives you he probably could have kept three or four.”
