Traveller With Bob Loftin

Season 11, Ep. 9
Today is the last in a series of conversations I shared over the period between the seasons, with some of the most creative gamers I know.My guest today is a fellow podcaster and perhaps one of the nicest and most mellow souls I have had the privilege to meet. We sat down to talk a little about the Classic Traveller roleplaying game - especially since, at the time, I was re-approaching the old Black Box set for a possible SF campaign I am still desperate to create. This conversation inspired many elements in the project that has arisen from it and I thank Bob hugely for making me think about Traveller in fresh ways.Bob Loftin is co-host of SAFCOcast, a podcast about the Traveller roleplaying game and its derivatives. SAFCO stands for Super Adventure Friends Co., the tongue-in-cheek name the members of Bob’s group decided to give the company their characters formed for their Classic Traveller campaign, “Into The Void”.

Fantasy, Dungeons, and The Open Table

What’s the easiest and most straightforward way to start playing roleplaying games after many years away from the table? And if we’re playing already but want to make the jump towards being Game Master, what’s the simplest path? Is there a way to make our first games so likely to succeed that we can overcome the anxiety that stands in the way?Big thanks to Jason, Brian, and Adam for the call-ins!LINKS:D&D Basic Rules: Basic D&D Rules | Dungeons & Dragons (wizards.com) OR https://dnd.wizards.com/what-is-dnd/basic-rulesThe Alexandrian Open Table Manifesto: The Alexandrian » Open Table Manifesto OR https://thealexandrian.net/wordpress/38643/roleplaying-games/open-table-manifestoOD&D (includes Book III): OD&D Dungeons & Dragons Original Edition (0e) - Wizards of the Coast | D&D, Original Edition | Dungeon Masters Guild (dmsguild.com) OR https://www.dmsguild.com/product/28306/ODD-Dungeons--Dragons-Original-Edition-0eBECMI DM's Book: D&D Basic Set - DM's Rulebook (BECMI ed.)
