Interviews - EP 19 - John Scott Tynes - Puppetland

2017-02-03 01:36:30 admin

Puppetland RPG

Topic -    In one of my favorite interviews ever, I had the pleasure of sitting down with someone who changed the way I looked at story structure, character developement, and gaming as a whole.

John Scott Tynes wrote Puppetland more than 20 years ago, making him a pioneer in the “storytelling” game world.

The concept was a twisted mixture of the familiar and the macabre, where the innocence of childhood sensabilities rides the center line, crashing headlong into visceral and existential horror.

There is a new, (beautiful!) edition of Puppetland available now.  John tells us the story of how it came to be.

In one golden hour, you and your friends tell a story that may very well stick with you forever, for better or worse…

…at the very least, you’ll never look at puppets the same.

Enjoy the show!

Interviews - Episode 2 - Chris Birch

The CarpeGm Interview Series – Episode 2 – Chris Birch

 

 

 

Notes - “World War Two…with tentacles!”  I was able to sit down and chat (via Skype) with Chris Birch of Modiphious about his new publishing imprint and campaign series, Achtung! Cthulhu.  Enjoy!

P.S.  Chris is a brilliant conversationalist, and sadly, I had to cut the interview a little short, as I had to go to my real job.  Unfortunately, once the mics were turned off, the conversation went on for another 15 to 20 minutes about gaming and geek culture in general.  By the time I realized the gold that was slipping through my fingers, it was to late.  With that, good listeners, I leave you with a solemn promise….From this point forward, the mics WILL NOT be turned off until all communication has ceased!!!
