Episode 220: Interview with Lou Agresta from Iron GM Games for Grimmerspace

We were lucky enough to get some time with Lou Agresta in the middle of the Kickstarter for Grimmerspace, a scifi horror setting for the Paizo Starfinder RPG. We discuss the choice of the system, playing horror in an RPG, Sean Astin’s involvement in the project, the Grimmerspace setting and setting-specific character classes and technology. We played the free starter adventure available on the Kickstarter page called Abbatoir-8 and we recount a little of our experiences. #grimmerspace #starfinder

Episode 216: Creature Feature : Robots

Also check out our shorter video discussion of robots in TTRPGs on our YouTube channel:

https://www.youtube.com/c/idleredhands

Robots, androids, replicants. They are called by many names and have a variety of origins and motivations. How can they best be used in your TTRPGs? Find out in our discussion about using robots in your tabletop campaigns, both as antagonists and protagonists. For additional inspiration, we also give you a list of possible campaign ideas (thank you, GURPS!).

In the tradition of our Creature Features, we watched the 1980 scifi film Saturn 3, starring Kirk Douglas, Harvey Keitel, and Farrah Fawcett. It includes some interesting examples of how to use a robot as an RPG character, even if it failed in its use of the robot as a movie character.
