Two audio experts join guest host John Dankosky to talk about the science of audio, and how perceptions can shape the sound experience.

MMOs, RPGs, and Pathfinder with Ryan Dancey, architect of the Open Gaming License strategy at Wizards of the Coast - The Game Design Round Table #73
How did Pathfinder become the only table-top role-playing game ever to outsell Dungeons & Dragons, outpacing it 2:1? What were the economics of the Open Gaming License, whereby Wizards of the Coast effectively gave away the rules to its flagship D&D product? Why did the table-top market collapse?
Parting with the usual format, James sits down with Senior Editor of Forbes Magazine and author of “Of Dice and Men” David M. Ewalt to discuss David experience running his very first campaign. Their conversations spans world building, session prep, improvisation, and how to incorporate lessons learned in other systems into your main campaign.
Listen to the interview with Glenn Freemantle on the BBC World Service here:
Products, Media and Immaterials Jack Schulze is a principal at BERG and co-founded the studio in 2005. In his lecture at Fabrica, Schulze uses the work of BERG and others to discuss how software and the network are changing media, communications and products.
