  1. Plot Points: Why Is Pelgrane Press So Good? Ep. 149

    Pelgrane Press is a phenomenal company devoted solely to the production of role-playing games. The company's products are universally stunning, from 13th Age to The Dracula Dossier. How does Pelgrane manage to put out such consistently amazing material with only one full-time employee? 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? 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.   Buy Ill Met in Lankhmar for Kindle here!

  3. One Shot- Trail of Cthulhu: The Dance in the Blood (Pt 1 of 2) | Free Podcasts | PodOmatic”

    In this Purist One Shot of Trail of Cthulhu (based on Call of Cthulhu and adapted from Robin Law's Gumshoe Game System by Kenneth Hite), our players find themselves in the English country town of Keswick. While they all have their reasons for being here, they aren't quite sure why this town and this place feels so familiar to them (having never been here before in their recollection). On the wall in The Blackstone Hotel, they discover a photograph from the early 1900's, which features children that look oddly like the investigators…
