Beast_the_primordialBy Paco Garcia Jaen

Onix Path has created some of the most iconic and popular roleplaying games out there and now they want to repeat the feat by publishing Beast: The Primordial, a game in which the players take on the roles of creatures that are the product of nightmares. Or the cause.

This game has been in development for over a year by writer and author Matthew McFarland and, if in the past he’s had some good ideas, he’s probably levelled up for this one because it sounds a lot better than I was expecting (and I was expecting a great deal to start with).

To find out more about the game and the limited Prestige Edition that’s funded on Kickstarter, I got together with McFarland and with Onix Path’s Creative Director Richard Thomas to ask about the game itself and the future of the line.

Hope you enjoy the show!

in_absentiaSometimes players have to leave the game and be ad-absentia for a few weeks at the time and sometimes they leave their characters behind so they can come back and retake the session. That happens more often than not in long term campaigns.

What should happen to those characters?

In this episode Vickey Beaver, Jim Pinto and myself discuss the dos and don’ts of dealing with characters that have been left behind and their possessions, worldly or otherwise.

With sordid secrets and everything!

Hope you enjoy the show!

Academy Games is currently in Kickstarter with a new version of a game called Mare Nostrum; a game of building empires, defending territories, building alliances and managing lots of resources.

The company has had massive successes in the past with games like Fief – France 1429, 1775 Rebellion, Freedon – The Underground Railroad and the Conflict of Heroes series and now they’re poised to repeat the feat with this project.

And I am not surprised. It looks amazing and Academy Games has forged a reputation for quality both of gameplay and production that people have come to trust.

But, as usual, a new game is also a new risk both for consumers and producers and one can never find enough information before buying to help make the right decision. Which is why I got together with Uwe to ask him a bunch of questions about the game and the project.

Hope you enjoy the show and take a look at the Mare Nostrum Kickstarter project.

SCP-Realms-of-Twilight-2EThis project has nothing to do with Kickstarter, I am pleased to say, but it nonetheless relies on the community and its collective imagination.

Imagine an imaginary arena where foes are pit against each other. And stories were told about those mighty battles with a winner to be crowned the winner.

Well, that is what Tournament of Souls is all about and it sounds pretty excellent.

I spoke with Daniel Marshal from Silver Crescent Publishing, who has devised Tournament of Souls, a competition to find the hardest CR7 creature.

Head to their Facebook page for Tournament of Souls and find out what’s going on there.

Hope you enjoy the show!

Apologies for the variance in volume levels.

pic1732644_t[1]I bought Boss Monster two years ago and just now I’ve managed to do a review. I know… I know… lazy bugger I am.

It’s even worse because the game is very good and fun to play (though annoying at times too).

This a dungeon builder game in which the players take the role of the bosses in a retro videogame from the late 80s and early 90s. Said dungeon is built by placing cards beside the boss and completing a dungeon of 5 rooms that will deal damage to the brave adventurers who will risk their lives to loot the newly made villainous homes.

And now, after quite a few plays, I can tell you what I thought about the game in this quick podcast.

Hope you enjoy the show!

mockupAlthough not many people think about countries like Greece a country with a board game tradition, some companies are keen on setting a stepping stone and bring some excellent games to the table of as many as possible.

Mage Company has been doing that since they released Wrong Chemistry a few years ago and then levelled up with 12 Realms only to then get even better with Hoyuk and now they have something else on the cooking pot.

12 Realms Bed Story takes the game to its final steps of expansion and pushes it as far as it can go. New rules, new themes, new realms, new characters… and new Kickstarter that will come out very soon.

Meanwhile, I got together with Alexander Argyropoulos to ask him questions about the next edition of the game and also about future plans for the companies.

Hope you’ll like what I heard as much as I did, because I liked it a lot!
