A Great Review!

 A while ago, we found this great person out in the Twitterverse named @ttrpgkids. She's all about helping families play role-playing games.

Well, we're all about that as well, so Jacob reached out and they reviewed Roll Dice, Build Character. Then, he set up an actual gaming session online. We all jumped onto facebook chat and played one day, with Brendon as the Narrator, and we all had a great time.

So, today, she posted a review of the game on her blog site, and WOW! What a review. I was so thrilled to see her mention some of the aspects and mechanics of the game that we had worked so hard to perfect during development. It was so encouraging!

Anyway, go read it, and enjoy it!

Meeples and Minis and Ghosts, Oh My!


Yeesh! Creepy! Scary!

Here in our first podcast/vlog episode, the design team of The Hero's Tale talks about ghosts! How do run them as a gamemaster, how to deal with them as a player. How to make them spookier to intensify the emotion in the game action! How to deal with character possession while still giving the player some autonomy.

Then, in the second half, we talk about how to visualize the game. Do you use "Theater of the Mind", or do you display your fights with meeples or miniatures with dungeon tiles or terrain? How does that change when you're doing online games?
