61: Grimdark Player Tips

10/20/2019
More
Unfortunately, our interview with Sean McCoy fell through, so to fill the gap we have done an episode about player tips for grimdark games instead, as this was a topic requested many of our patrons when we asked for ideas (and no other topics were forthcoming). While we wanted to keep this to tips before, during, and after a game, it naturally expanded a bit, so you will also find quite a bit of discussion around session zero. Some links we mention in the episode: Seth's Edgelord video:...
