In this episode of Role-Play Ramblings Matt talks with, his guest, Jason Hardy of Catalyst Game Labs about social tension and how it can be applied to role-playing. Filmed at Origins 2016 this is one of my favorite episodes of all time. This episode was inspired by the transgender bathroom debate that was socially prominent early in 2016. Jason and I don’t actually debate an issue here; we discuss how to apply an issue appropriately with your community.

This is a really great episode for thse who truly want to create an extremely rich game world.  Thank you Jason Hardy for making this topic make perfect sense

In this episode of Role-Play Ramblings Matt discusses spotlighting. Which is the art of allowing player characters shine at the right point in time for them to become integral to the story.

I have been GMing for about 30 years and I still find this to be one of the most difficult things to do!

In this Role-Play Ramblings Matt talks about Story telling, He shares some of the pitfalls he has experienced as a GM and he talks about how writing fiction differs from writing an adventure.

In this episode of Role-Play Ramblings Matt talks about planting seeds.  Which in this conversation is a combination of foreshadowing, note taking, listening and even closure.

 


This is something that I think newer GM’S struggle with, but once it’s learned it is very rewarding.

In this Flip Through Matt takes a look at Pathfinders Black Markets.  It’s something every world should have.  This book features new alchemical devices, items, magic, and even secret languages.  Without a doubt you can pull a Black Market out of these pages if your’e in a pinch, or you can use it to create your own black market.

I was talking with one of my friends and they have challenged me to make a black market as a follow up to this post.  Look for it soon, does any one want to draw it when I’m done?
