This is Critical Glitch, a Shadowrun Podcast Nerps 13
Your host, The Most Dangerous Man in Gaming – Tim Patrick
Co-Host: Bob “Dr. Meatgrinder” Loper
Co-Host, Mike “Cadre Elite” Messmer
Special Guest, The Elfiest man in Shadowrun – Russell Zimmerman
Russell Zimmerman takes time from his schedule to talk to us about his exploits as a Shadowrun Novelist. We get to learn what it was like to write Shaken No Job Too Small, his inspiration, and what not to do.
This gives us what we feel to be a solid platform to do remote recording at conventions and also to try our hand at some actual plays in the future.
We still have a ways to go and things we can do to improve as the funds permit but we wanted to show you where some of your support has gone. If you’re interested in supporting us check out our Patreon page or just make sure to use one of the links we provide to DrivethruRPG when you go to make your next online purchase.
A few weeks ago I started watching Titansgrave: The Ashes of Valkana from Geek and Sundry I was captivated by how elegant and simple the system appeared and how the world setting Wil Wheaton and the rest of the group created. It struck me how easily this could be adapted to be a 4th world setting for those interested in something like that. The Fantasy AGE rule system by Green Ronin uses a simple 3d6 mechanic with one die being an off color. When you have a challenge you roll your 3 dice and add them to a stat or skill on your character sheet. If you have doubles the off color die shows you how many stunt points you have to spend to do extra cool things as part of the action. I think I have found my new relax for fun system.
If your looking for something to digest I can’t recommend this web series enough.
