Open Design Podcast 4:
Greenwood, Kenson, Styrsky

ODP_IconI can’t believe it’s been a month, but GenCon always plays havoc with a sense of time. The latest and greatest Open Design Podcast is now available for your listening pleasure.

In addition to regulars Skip Williams and Monte Cook, yours truly and co-hosts Ed Healy and Rone Barton discuss the recent crop of ENnie Awards. Oh, and some guests.

We chat with noted Green Ronin designer Steve Kenson about a designer’s relationship with editors. And about how design decisions shift from edition to edition in game systems such as Mutants & Masterminds.

We also talk to Ed Greenwood about all things fantastical; certainly his home campaign became the largest and longest-running RPG setting. I’m a little jealous that my co-hosts got this interview; Ed’s always a got something funny, smart, or wicked to say. Sometimes all three at once.

Finally, it’s not all industry veterans. Stefen Styrsky joined Open Design with the Empire of the Ghouls project, and has been with us ever since. Not only has he started contributing great content to the projects themselves, you can also find his Bard articles in the pages of Kobold Quarterly. Call it a newcomer’s view of the field.

Do Not Miss!

Yesterday I thought: “isn’t it time for a podcast?” Today KQ delivers.

Always a good listen.
