Dice of Doom Podcast 039: Goblins!, Fabled Lands, Mutants & Masterminds, and Using Skill Checks on PCs

The Dice of Doom Podcast Logo, Square, 125pxIn this, admittedly belated, episode of the Dice of Doom podcast we discuss how you (yes you!) can be part of the play testing experience for our new RPG Goblins! We discuss the games that we will be playing this year (Fabled Lands, Mutants & Masterminds, Shadowrun, Mouse Guard, Ars Magica, The One Ring, Traveller, Deadlands). We also review Fabled Lands.

For our discussion topic this episode we are asked the question by Michael S on our Facebook page “Should you be able to use your skills, like Diplomacy and Intimidate on other players?” We have to apologise to Michael S as we forgot to give him a shout out in the podcast. Sorry Michael S, our bad. We’ve mentioned it four times in the post as compensation…

While we’re about it, we should also thank Jake E (also on our Facebook page) for sending us some house rules for Fabled Lands – they helped with some of the balancing issues.

Play Testing Goblins: If you’re interested in helping out with Goblins! head over to the  site to see what the process is.

    Which edition of deadlands? I enjoyed the one that used poker cards in its mechanics. Great world too.

    Like your show. Always very entertaining and yet reasonably focused.
    About your gaming/reviewing plans. The Deadlands is something I haven’t played it before, also western meets monsters is not really my cup of beer, but I only know it because of Savage Worlds #1 setting. So I hope you play the SW version and review the system as well.

    If not, I still hope you will take a look at SW and also look at a very cool fantasy setting called Hellfrost.

    Also Legend game from Mongoose Publishing is awesome if you would like to cover it in your show.
