I did it!
I finally close with this interview my substantial backlog of episodes recorded well-ahead of their release.
This last one brings us back to a time before measures were enforced in London to face Covid-19 (hence “before the plague” get it ?).
After a rather topical plague-focused session of HeroQuest Glorantha, David and Ian spent an hour with me to discuss their journey into tabletop role-playing, Chaosium and of course Glorantha.
Come join us on this path towards the bronze age.
I hope many of you will join me at Virtually Expo for a session of my game “Paris Gondo – The Life-Saving Magic of Inventorying“.
Don’t forget that we will also hold the “A Guide for Parents to Dungeons & Dragons and Tabletop Roleplaying” panel at Virtually Expo.
