Announcement on Future Content and Posting

Due to continued negative listener feedback, we have decided to cancel posting Prominence-verse games on the main feed. They will be made available in chunks on the Drunker and Uglier section of the site as we are able to get them edited up.

Due to scheduling issues, work times, and other upcoming events as well as the sanity of our team of editors, we are switching to a Fridays-Only posting schedule for the forseeable future. When we started the podcast, more than half of us were unemployed or had just finished schooling. 5 years later, nearly all of us have full-time jobs, private businesses, or grad school and just do not have the time to produce our regular content load without devoting the entirety of our free time to the podcast. We’ve been chipping away at our back-catalog and it just got a lot shorter.

The podcast is a labor of love. We’ve been lucky that people have listened to it and luckier still that some of them have decided they liked it enough to help us cover the expenses of hosting, buying hardware, and maintaining continuing contracts for software. We will continue to produce the show for you for as long as we can. I don’t see us going away anytime soon.

Indie Design the Chicken Salad Way at Gen Con 2015

Gen Con 2015: Matt Campen and Ross Payton sat down and talked about their shared experiences designing, publishing, and producing roleplaying games.

Game Design is a long and tedious process. Turning a pile of notes into a book can seem nearly impossible. There’s a phrase in journalism that all the mayonnaise in the world can’t turn chicken crap into chicken salad; nevertheless, you have to do it over and over each time.

This panel explores the essential steps to consider when looking at your loose-chicken-parts collective of ideas and a formula to turn it into some chicken salad goodness.

A discarded suitcase. An unsuspecting victim. A tragedy that will haunt a lifetime.
