Interview with Shane Ivey, Dennis Detwiller, and Scott Glancy of Arc Dream Publishing

This year at GenCon we had the absolute pleasure of sitting down with the creators of one of our favorite games. We chatted with Shane Ivey, Dennis Detwiller, and Scott Glancy about Delta Green, the horrors of Frontier Airlines, get rich quick schemes, and the stories behind one of the best games available! 


GenCon 2019 Wrap Up

We harassed people on discord to chat with us about their time at GenCon and were generally pretty silly. We forgot to cover a bunch of cool things we did (some of which will show up as interviews later this week) and cool people we met, but I hope you enjoy hearing what we enjoyed!
 

Thanks to Tom and Kim for joining us!
 

(Please do let us know if you hated this so we can figure out if this is a thing worth doing more often)

Review: Shadow of the Century

The very first example of Fate in play I ever heard was an absolutely over-the-top pulp melee recorded by Role Playing Public Radio. It’s hard to believe how long ago that was. Unfortunately, we’ve never managed to sit down and record any games of this work that’s cast such a long shadow, if you’ll pardon the pun, across the tabletop gaming landscape. We’ve played a lot of Fate over the years though, and loved it every time. So, it was with a fair measure of excitement and trepidation that we greeted the announcement of Shadow of the Century. Now, having sat down with the book and put a few hours into some very gonzo gameplay, I can say that the excitement was totally justified, and I think this game is a worthy descendant that captures an entirely new genre while remaining true to The Spirit of the Century.

It seems like this game was written for a TRF crew. The best evidence for this is that the adventure starts with them already locked in the brig.
