The G*M*S Magazine Podcast Episode 88–Torn Armor with Alyssa Faden

Roleplaying and board games reviews, podcasts, videos and interviews

torn_armor_logoSquirmish games are that sort of games that fascinate me and scare me. They scare me more than they fascinate me, which is why I’ve never got into any of them. The huge tomes of rules, the tons and tons of rules to become familiar with (or so they look like to me) and the pretty huge amount of money some minis cost have put me off so far.

But this is a Kickstarter project and we all know that, no matter how nice they look, sometimes they don’t turn up to be as good as they appear, so I had to talk to the designer, Alyssa Faden.

Alyssa is a well known cartographer. Her maps are truly stunning and she’s been commissioned to do too many maps to mention.

But don’t take it from me, take it from the lady herself and listen to the interview. You might be surprised, and hopefully inspired, by what you hear!
