CarpeGM Interviews – Episode 7 – Mark Hoge

I had the opportunity to sit down with Mark Hoge, Founder, and Director of Renaissance Adventures, and creator of Adventure Quest: Fantasy RPG for table top and LARP.

 

 

Since 1995, Mark has been doing fantastic work in Boulder, Colorado, introducing hundreds, if not  thousands of kids to the gaming hobby, while nurturing creativity, encouraging imagination, and bolstering self esteem.

Mark is now transferring his tried and true LARP system to a table top format and has a Kickstarter campaign to support the effort.

Take a look.

Robin D. Laws

The resulting interview is the inaugural episode of the Metagamers Anonymous Interview Series.

It’s a fantastic interview, with Robin talking about his personal interests, his past works, and future projects, with a well balanced mixture of leading questions, intelligent responses, and informed commentary on Erik’s part.

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!!!
