Why Fantasy?

In this episode, I go deep into opinionsville.  So why is fantasy the most popular genre for RPG's?  And there's the usual segments, a remarkably calm Labyrinth Lord game,  D&D Boot Camp, and reading from the Little Brown Books.Also, mentioned in this Episode, Bill Webb's Deck of Trick Tricks.

Erik Tenkar and Gothridge Manor have already talked about this stuff. Since I'm preparing to run The Blight by Frog God Games, I figured it's time I share my initial thoughts. Don't fear the city. Be ready to improvise. And too many details will just bog you down. Plus the usual features. D&D Boot Camp and Reading from the Ancient Tomes.  Roll dice, kill monsters, take their stuff, and have fun.If you like this episode please visit The Patreon. "Take the Lead" Kevin MacLeod (incompetech.com)Licensed under Creative Commons: By Attribution 4.0 Licensehttp://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/--- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/playing-it-wrong/support

This episode I rekindle my love for Swords & Wizardry.  I've talked that much about it recently but then there was an epiphany.  It makes the perfect game as a gateway and bridge between the old-school games and the current editions.  You can check out more about Swords & Wizardry at Frog God Games.  For some fun listening check out the Swords & Misery Podcast for some actual play. And check out Matt Finch's Patreon too.This episode also debuts a new segment, D&D Boot Camp. Advice and wisdom to new players and game masters. And as usual there's the reading from the original old books.And you can support the podcast too.

The landscape has changed. D&D is mainstream. Social media networks go away (looking at you G+). And some mystic cabal appoints the influencers. What's the common gamer to do?  Play it your way.   I know I have a "plan".  It's time to go Punk.And here's the link to the old blog post mentioned in this episode.Also, it's that time of year that I start setting the goals for next year so I took as a prefect time to put a new coat of paint on the podcast.  We have music and even a few bumpers.  So if you're a new listener start here. We've worked out a lot of kinks Intro Music: "Take the Lead" Kevin MacLeod (incompetech.com)Licensed under Creative Commons: By Attribution 4.0 Licensehttp://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/--- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/playing-it-wrong/support
