Otherworlds With Daniel Jones

Season 11, Ep. 22
This is the fifth in a sequence of conversations I’ve been having with various friends within the roleplaying games community. This episode continues my quest to find the game I really want to play, focused today upon the question of how to achieve greater Otherworld-immersion and build the kind of Otherworld that matters to us. My guest is, of course, Daniel Jones.Daniel is the originator of the term Otherworld-immersion and a proponent of the idea that changing the methodology of our roleplaying games is the key to changing the experience we have at the table. For those who don’t know him, Daniel is a published author, game designer, philosopher, podcaster - check out the Primaeval Fantasy podcast - and the man behind the Eudaimonic Geekery blog. If you want to hear our earlier conversations about Otherworld-immersion, please check out Season 6, Episode 10; Season 9, Episode 14; and Season 10, Episode 19. Big thank you to Daniel from Primaeval Fantasy for coming and sharing his ideas with us.Primæval Fantasy • A podcast on Anchor:https://anchor.fm/primeval-fantasyFRPG Thoughts | Good Daemon Geekery (danielionson.wixsite.com)https://danielionson.wixsite.com/good-daemonGame on!Roleplay Rescue Details:Voice Message:speakpipe.com/roleplayrescuePatreon:patreon.com/rpgrescue Email:hello@rpgrescue.comBlog:roleplayrescue.com MeWe Group:mewe.com/join/roleplayrescueor search "Roleplay Rescue"Twitter:@ubiquitousratRoleplay Rescue Theme by Jon Cohen from Tale of the Manticore:https://taleofthemanticore.podbean.com/

Solo With Simon Williams

Season 11, Ep. 21
This is the fourth in a fresh sequence of conversations I’ve been having with various friends within the roleplaying games community. This episode continues my quest to find the game I really want to play, this time through re-investigating the topic of solo roleplaying.My guest, Simon Williams, is a British artist and illustrator as well as being the creator of the Legend of The Bones podcast, a hybrid Solo Old School Dungeons and Dragons actual play and dark fantasy audio drama. His evocative illustrations are inspired by classic roleplaying games like Fighting Fantasy and classic works of fiction such as The Lord of The Rings. His podcast is an amazing work of art, inspired by the pioneering Tale of The Manticore podcast whose creator, Jon, wrote and performed the theme music for this show. Simon’s Legend of the Bones has become a must-listen for me because his descriptions and characters are incredibly believable. And on top of all of this creativity, Simon is a husband and father, finding time for family and a very demanding job too. I hopped online to find out how he manages to enjoy an intense solo roleplaying experience so that I can move in this direction too.Big thanks to Simon for coming back to the show - it truly was an eye-opening and key conversation for me. I hope you’ll find it useful too.Legend of The Bones Podcast:https://legendofthebones.podbean.com/Game on!Roleplay Rescue Details:Voice Message:speakpipe.com/roleplayrescuePatreon:patreon.com/rpgrescue Email:hello@rpgrescue.comBlog:roleplayrescue.com MeWe Group:mewe.com/join/roleplayrescueor search "Roleplay Rescue"Twitter:@ubiquitousratRoleplay Rescue Theme by Jon Cohen from Tale of the Manticore:https://taleofthemanticore.podbean.com/
