Rank #10: 17: Coriolis Interview with Fria Ligan

Podcast cover
Read more

In Episode 17, Liam and Matt are joined by Nils Karlén & Kosta Kostulas from Fria Ligan to discuss their sci-fi masterpiece, Coriolis. This game shakes up the sci-fi norm by ditching the European cultural model and instead aims (and hits) an “Arabian Nights in Space” feel. With the enigmatic Dark Between the Stars providing a subtle supernatural threat, and combat which is gritty and lethal, this game definitely pushes all the right Mud & Blood buttons.

Oh, and Matt will be running an Actual Play series featuring this game – Session Zero will be released in just over a week!

Show music is Berserkir by Danheim.

Podcast cover

In Episode 33, we take a look at The Wilderness. Many fantasy settings describe the wilderness as a wild and dangerous place, lethal to the unwary and full of monsters. Yet many games don’t go any further, leaving wilderness survival and travel as something to either be handwaved or ignored completely. Yet treating the wilderness as a dangerous and unpredictable part of your game can help make the setting feel even more compelling. Join us as we march west of civilisation, and tackle the subject of Wilderness.

Show music is Berserkir by Danheim.

61: Grimdark Player Tips

Podcast cover

Unfortunately, our interview with Sean McCoy fell through, so to fill the gap we have done an episode about player tips for grimdark games instead, as this was a topic requested many of our patrons when we asked for ideas (and no other topics were forthcoming).

While we wanted to keep this to tips before, during, and after a game, it naturally expanded a bit, so you will also find quite a bit of discussion around session zero.

Some links we mention in the episode:
