Of Mooks and Monsters Episode 99 – Players on Defense

Download

What happens when players aren’t foraging into new territory or crawling through a dungeon full of monsters? One possibility is they could be holding a pass against an army of goblins or some other form of defensive conflict.

Your able hosts, Rob Ward and Tim Niederriter, dive into this topic with examples and discussion of how best to run such scenarios. There are lots of possibilities!

Old Books Made New

Hello readers, gamers, and people who are interested in both.

I’m lacking experience in nonfiction suspense, so I’ll just get to it.

I’ve just rereleased my short book, originally entitled “The Mangrove Suite” under a new name,  and will be relaunching the series over the next two weeks.

This series takes place in a post-apocalyptic future society where a caste of superhuman protectors is also the greatest threat to humanity’s survival. Our hero doesn’t fathom how deep the roots of the conspiracy go and keeps getting dragged in deeper as the story progresses.

I put a lot of big ideas into these books, but they’re all quick reads. If you enjoy the works of William Gibson or Richard K. Morgan but could use a dose of post-apocalyptic horror blended with the cyberpunk world this series is for you.

Book one “Memory Lost” is out now, so click the cover below if it sounds interesting. Book two “Mind Chase” drops this Friday, but is also available for preorder if you click the image below. Book three will come out early in August. Share and enjoy and thank you all for reading as well as listening!


Of Mooks and Monsters Episode 97 – The Quest for Peace

We’re back discussing how to start a campaign from an unstable or downbeat situation and have players aspire to something greater, either for their characters, or the game world, or both.

Thanks for listening.

Don’t forget, you can email us any thoughts you have on the show at podcast@mentalcellarpublications.com

We love to hear from people!
