Episode 211: Top 5 Horror Settings

For Halloween this year, we discuss our top 5 horror settings for role-playing. These settings, from movies, books, and television, aren’t necessarily our favorite ones to watch or read, but they are the most interesting and inspirational settings to play in. Let us know if you agree with us!

Note that we deliberately didn’t include settings that are currently being used for games. Do you really need another gaming list topped by Call of Cthulhu and World of Darkness?

If you would like to skip the full discussion and go right to the final top 5, please visit our YouTube channel.

Episode 129: Inspirations #2

The Idle Red Hands are still finding inspiration in everyday things like Jenga towers, X-Box games and bear gods. Join us for our second installment of Inspirations where we share game ideas we’ve gotten from outside of the TRPG world.

In this episode, we discuss  the novel Shardik, the video game Bastion, and the TRPG Dread. I think one of the hosts doesn’t quite get the concept of this series.

Episode 122: Inspirations #1

In this first installment of a new series, we look at things that have given us at least one game idea. The three inspirations for this episode are Princess Mononoke, Saga of the Swamp Thing and Cloverfield.

We had considered opening these show notes with the lyrics to Chicago’s “You’re the Inspiration”, but we were worried that the song would get stuck in your head. ARGH! Too late!
