The G*M*S Magazine Podcast Episode 98–Standard Action with Joanna Gaskell

I had the pleasure of taking to Joanna Gaskell, the producer, writer, actress and overall brains and passion behind Standard Action, one of the bet produced and funniest fantasy web series out there.

The series has gone through one full season and season two episodes are being screened now, with still some episodes to come. Season three is currently being funded in Kickstarter and has already got enough money to produce the third season, though there are some really cool stretch goals to come.

Northwest Adventure Passage

Another Spanish game that caught my eye and did it with good reasons. It has exploration, lovely artwork, it’s very thematic and it comes from GenX in Spain, a company that has delivered some truly impressive titles in the past.

The Northwest Passage is a sea route that lies between northern Canada and the North Pole, joining the Atlantic and Pacific oceans. The first expeditions took place after the discovery of America due to the need of the English to connect both coasts of the Americas to avoid edging the whole continent. However, it was not until the beginning of the 20th century when the adventurous spirit of sailors led them to discover this passage.

The Howler in the Wind

This is an introductory adventure that can be used to introduce a few new characters to the Cthulhu setting. It was written a long time ago, so it might need some changes to be adapted to newer systems.
