These are episodes where we talk about games instead of playing them. Most of our podchats are recorded alongside a Bonus Feat or Mini-Campaign, but not all.
03: Non-Standard Fantasy
Recorded alongside Inverse World.
Mikan and Gnome, writers of the Inverse World expansion for Dungeon World, join the crew to discuss how Inverse World and other games break free of standard fantasy tropes.
07: Designing From Influences
Recorded alongside Strike!
Strike! is an RPG that refines D&D, Mouse Guard, 13th Age and more down to a simple, fast formula. We discuss the process of designing from your influences with Strike! creator Jim McGarva.
15: Building… Tension
Recorded alongside Danger Patrol.
Tension is difficult to balance, and for a pre-written story, is carefully adjusted with cues for danger and story-based investment. It becomes far dicier when tension is incorporated into a game where the story is "written" as it is played.
17: Diversity, Representation, & Inclusiveness In Games
Recorded alongside Ehdrigohr.
Ironicus and Ikks of Six Feats Under are joined by Keith Carberry, Ali West, and Austin Walker of Friends at the Table to discuss a pressing issue in the modern day.
04: Eastern Tabletop Games & Culture
Recorded alongside Golden Sky Stories.
Golden Sky Stories translator Ewen Cluney joins us to discuss tabletop gaming culture in Japan, and the handful of games he has worked to bring to English-speaking audiences.
12: Pre-Written Adventures
Recorded alongside Costume Fairy Adventures.
We discuss the value of prepackaged adventures as a teacher, a time-saving measure, a chance for communal experience, and a springboard for your campaigns.
14: Gaming With Difficult Issues
Recorded alongside Night Witches.
Ironicus, Eliza, Arden, DeviousVacuum, and Marah discuss ways to ensure players feel comfortable in potentially uncomfortable situations.
