Glorantha, the World of Darkness, Rokugan, the Third Horizon. Are you intrigued by long-established RPGs with well developed settings? Have you been excited by fans sharing their love for the fantastic geographies and incredible histories? Or is the complex mythology and enthusiastic fan base off-putting, a barrier to enjoying those richly detailed worlds?

Show Notes

As a podcast that started talking about the Third Horizon in Coriolis, new GMs often ask us “where do I start?”  But Coriolis is the youngest setting in this discussion. Runequest’s Glorantha, by contrast, is over four decades old. So we have brought together experts in four much loved settings, to talk about how to break down any barriers and start having fun.

Recorded at UKGE Virtually Expo 2020, the panel is chaired by co-host Matthew and features:

B. Dave Walters is a revolutionary content creator and storyteller. Known for playing Victor Temple on Vampire the Masquerade: LA by Night, he is the writer of Dungeons & Dragons: A Darkened Wish for IDW comics.
Jeff Richard is Vice President and Creative Director for Chaosium. He is the lead author of the Guide to Glorantha, HeroQuest Glorantha, and RuneQuest: Roleplaying in Glorantha, as well as numerous other supplements and articles. Jeff has been the creative director and editor-in-chief of all things Glorantha since 2008.
Mattias Johnsson Haake, director of two of Free League’s settings: Symbaroum’s Davokar and Coriolis’ Third Horizon
Anjuli Smith, by day marketeer for Aconyte’s range of game-related novels, by night the streamer known only as GeekGirlBookworm

There a a couple of strange moments, the first when B.Dave mouths a silent denial and then confirmation about the existence of the supernatural. Then, at the end only B.Dave appears to plug anything. The others got their chance too, but plugged what as going on at UKGE which is long gone now.
