61: Grimdark Player Tips

Podcast cover
Read more

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:
