  2. Plot Points: Swords, Spies, & Shoggoths: The Pelgrane Press Panel from Gen Con 2019- Ep. 156

    Discover what secrets will be sprung upon the world by Pelgrane Press in the coming months! Can your heart stand the appalling shocks? Explore tabletop role-playing at its finest!   Ben’s book on RPG adventure design, Encounter Theory, is on DriveThruRPG. Click here to pick up this essential volume! Like Plot Points? Support it on Patreon at the $2 level, and you’ll get a sneak peek into Ben’s book about the sale of TSR to Wizards of the Coast! This chapter concerns TSR West, an effort by TSR to open an LA office devoted to producing comic books, an effort that failed rather impressively. It is the product of a dozen interviews with professionals from comics, gaming, and Hollywood, and as far as I can reckon, it is a tale entirely untold until now.   Image courtesy Pelgrane Press.   Theme music courtesy 50 Breaks.

An interview with co-owner Cat Tobin plumbs the depths of the Pelgrane paradox.  Ben’s book on RPG theory is finally available for purchase! Encounter Theory lays out Ben’s theory of adventure design. It also has 14 playplans to help you design better adventures, and an entire 5E adventure applying his ideas, along with commentary about why he wrote adventure the way he did. Check it out here!  Like Plot Points?
