A podcast about creating your own role-playing game, wargame and board game rules hosted by Tom Barbalet.

24. Sourcing Shields [June 15, 2019]
  Tom welcomes back on Barney Dicker who produced a wonderful YouTube video with his son. Tom misspoke when describing the current Kev Adams offerings. The best place for new Kev Adams is Knightmare Miniatures with shields of interest from Black Tree Design (you have to ask for them especially). Knightmare also has a selection of green skin shields Tom offers some ideas on finding good sets of miniatures in the wild. Barney talks about the spectrum between war-games and roleplaying games meeting in skirmish games. This requires some discussion about Tom's experiences moving from 5th Edition to Just Plain Chaos in the work game. Barney also wants to know more about the Chechen rules in the work setting.

23. Tom the Ogre [June 2, 2019]
  Tom welcomes back Mathew Gibson who provides an update on his Dungeons and Dragons game including a named non-player miniature character. Mathew offers the topic of excess in gaming from which Tom frames a grim balance between commercial success and something important with a detour into psychedelia in gaming. Mathew raises a few more topics from prior podcasts concluding on home-brew rules: in a negative light? Never. [ MP3 | link ]
