E82. “Running a Heist…” with Mark Finn
2.29 Welcome RPG Ramblings with Jeff Jones. This a weekly show exploring the various details of the TableTop RPG hobby through discussions with interesting people. Today, Mark Finn joins me. If you need the direction, inspiration and motivation for adding heists into your game, Mark has you covered with two products. First in the, “hot of the virtual press” category is Tools of the Trade. Next, just in time for ZineQuest in August is, the zine “Ogre’s Eleven.” We end the interview with me, realizing that I failed to inquire about his recorded audio dramatization that I had just heard. I stitched that at the end. In the show notes is a link to my Patreon. For one dollar per month you can fund 1/11th of a smile on my face. Currently, I only have enough of a smile to make a smirk. Time is wasting here on the Group W bench, sisters and brothers. It is time to get rambling. ———————————————————————————————— Patreon - https://www.patreon.com/RPG_Ramblings ———————————————————————————————— Gamehole Event - https://gameholecon.com/events/event/17717 ———————————————————————— Mark Finn Twitter @finnswake Substack: ntab.substack.com Webite: www.northtexasapocalypsebunker.com Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/northtexasapocalypsebunker ———————————————————————————————— Jeff Jones Twitter: @I_Am_Jeffrey Itch.io: https://jeffrey-a-jones.itch.io DriveThru: https://www.drivethrurpg.com/browse.php?author=Jeffrey%20A%20Jones Intro and Outro Music: Jungle Juice by Wataboi from Pixabay.com/music Sound Effects: https://sound-effects.bbcrewind.com

1.28 Welcome RPG Ramblings with Jeff Jones. This a weekly show exploring the various details of the TableTop RPG hobby through discussions with interesting people. This week Tim Shorts joins me to talk about that grand TSR module from the eighties. The Dwellers of the Forbidden City. I don’t know WHY the city is forbidden. In fact, I don’t even know that it is forbidden. But what I do know is that it contains some wonderful elements that shine like bullywugs on a moonlit night. The not so secret “secret” is that Tim and I are working on a re-imagining of this module. Not so much of a re-do as taking the themes presented in the module and do them in a different way. While this project comes up in discussion, the primary focus is finding significant elements and talk about utilizing those principles in games we run or design. Also, as a side note. I will be traveling for work next week so there likely will not be a podcast the following week. Actually, the difficulty of getting guests in a timely manner may cause me to consider moving this podcast to a fortnightly schedule. If there are gaps between show releases, you now know why.

E26. “The Best Laid Plans….” with Me
1.26 Welcome RPG Ramblings with Jeff Jones. This a weekly show exploring the various details of the TableTop RPG hobby through discussions with interesting people.  Well….except for today. I have being doing a weekly show for six months. In fact, this episode is the 26th episode. I made a commitment to myself when starting this that I would do this for at least a year. The weekly schedule has been doable but it is a bit taxing…but I am committed to doing that for the rest of the year as life allows. This week, the lining up of guests combined with my family schedule for this weekend made getting an episode out more difficult that I wanted to deal with. For those that backed Scoundrels, the books are slotted for printing on June second and hopefully all the physical copies will be sent out before July. I am working on a post apocalyptic product with some friends, and that is coming around nicely. I am sending the rough draft out to the copy editor this week. I am hoping to have a “MEGA-ZINE” ready for Kickstarter in the fall. I am also working on fun supplement for Zine Quest 4, in 2022. It is a setting and magical supplement to add fly-themed devilishness to fantasy campaigns. I also have a handful of other projects I will announce when I get closer. Also….GameHole Con is coming. My room is reserved. I hope to see you all there. This is one of the few events I look forward to with anticipation. To close this incredibly brief episode, please reach out and tell me what you like about the show. Is the weekly format good or is it just too much? Is there a person or topic that you would like to see on the show? I am doing the show each week in a vacuum chamber so feedback is welcome. I can be reached on twitter as @I_Am_Jeffrey. On email jeffjonesphotography@gmail. com. Facebook is possible as well. This is an anchor podcast so you can leave a voicemail through there. Or, you can leave a voice mail via my Google Voice number. (217) 731-4659 All this is in the show notes. Sisters and Brothers, I bid you farewell until next week. ———————————————————————————————— RPG Ramblings Podcast: https://anchor.fm/jeffrey-jones6 Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/groups/2804349736447278 ———————————————————————————————— ———————————————————————————————— Jeff Jones Twitter: @I_Am_Jeffrey Itch.io: https://jeffrey-a-jones.itch.io DriveThru: https://www.drivethrurpg.com/browse.php?author=Jeffrey%20A%20Jones Intro and Outro Music: Jungle Juice by Wataboi from Pixabay.com/music Sound Effects: https://sound-effects.bbcrewind.com

This week Tim Shorts, of Gothridge Manor, joins me to discuss a wonderful article written by Andrew Peregrine for a Modiphius blog. The article is entitled DUNE #10 - Walking Without Rhythm and was intended to explain to GM how there is so much going on in Arrakis that there is no need for planet hopping. After reading the six points I realized that these points are good for any campaign a GM wants run. Furthermore, I think if a campaign feels stale, it is likely that adding these elements may be all you need to inspire the players and yourself. High on tight people….we cover a lot of ground.

For starters I found out that Doug actually played in a Robot Warriors campaign (we mistakingly called it Robot Hero). We also discuss West End Games Star Wars and get into a pontificate about B running mysteries in RPGs. Doug talks about creating a dynamic setting, and handling success and failures with skills and give a short history of The Fantasy Trip. That sounds like a very packed hour. One would think it impossible to put additional quality content into a single hour. But wait, there is more! In the middle and at the end of the podcast we discuss the Hero System and GURPS.  This is a rather abrupt end to our discussion because this was the first half of the discussion we had the previous week.

Doug Cole from Gaming Ballistics talks about his product Character Collections for Fantasy Trip that is currently running on Kickstarter.

Doug has been in business for a number of years and shares his experiences running Kickstarters and getting physical book printed. The second interview is with Edoardo Cremaschi who hails from Milano, Lombardia. He relates his history with gaming and his path into designing story games. We talk about his kickstarter project Little Katy’s Tea Party. A game that exudes and tremendous amount of charm. The goal is to protect Katy, but introduces the quandary of how far should one go in protecting her? After all, growing into adulthood requires learning to navigate hardships.

This is a behind-the-scenes look at what it is like going through the valley of fire and we share the details and our thoughts. For talking points, I used Tim’s post “Successfully Funded! Some Stats and Insights” from his blog post on Gothridgemanor.blogspot.com https://gothridgemanor.blogspot.com/2021/02/successfully-funded-some-stats-and.html Before the interview, I knew we would be talking a lot of details and that might prove to be too much for many listeners. The plan is that Tim and I would talk for an hour and the I would have a second, non-technical interview to provide lighter content to dilute it. As we talked, it became obvious that I consistently underestimate how long I can discuss any topic with people like Tim. Well, brothers and sisters…..this is two hour discussion. No apologies. 100% pure deep dive. Dear listeners, don’t worry, this isn’t all details.

We also get to hear how a crazy, impetuous leap made in his youth paid off. His experiences and advice are still applicable for us starting a freelance career today. The second part is an off-the-cuff discussion with Morgan Grover whom I interviewed in Episode 7. Here Morgan extols his love for Shadow of the Demon Lord and I grind my ax regarding how my normal dislike of High Fantasy is fueled to hate by bad adventure design in Decent into Avernus.

The intent was to talk about Jorune but I sidelined it by starting two topics that I thought would lead to fairly short discussions…but both turned into fairly deep discussions The first topic I am saving for another day because I believe this topic is fairly pertinent as we launch into Zine Quest 3 madness. We discuss the stress that comes with being creative and how we deal with that. This also applies to game mastering and we ponder why engage in activities that bring us stress. Like any good rambling session, we end on downtime activities for Blades in the Dark. Give the length of our discussion, there is no deep dive portion to this episode. But fear not, dear listener, I have many deep dives planned. It is time for me to stop talking and time for us all to get rambling.

E5. Terror of the Statosfiend with Sean Richer and securing the Gangbusters IP with Mark Hunt
Welcome RPG Ramblings, a weekly show exploring various details of the TableTop RPG hobby through discussions with interesting people. The show starts with Sean Richer and we discuss Terror of the Stratosfiend: a gonzo horror, sci-fi mashup that bolts seamlessly onto Dungeon Crawl Classics, but can be used in any OSR game. An absolutely beautiful set of zines produced by successful Kickstarters. We discuss how Rifts was the inspiration and devolve into discussing Savage Worlds. For the Deep Dive, Mark Hunt describes his journey in acquiring the IP for Gangbusters, an old TSR game that was out of print for decades. We start at the beginning and go through steps it took to become owner of the IP and start publishing. This can serve as an inspiration and a starting point for those wanting to pursue an exiting IP.
