Podcast #99: How an RPG Gets Made

This week, Morrus and Peter talk about how a roleplaying game gets made, from the initial pitch to a publisher all the way through writing, editing, art, layout, and getting the final printed book in your hand along with tips on how to get into the industry. In the news, D&D’s Mythic Odyssey of Theros delayed, Kickstarter laid off half its staff, Warhammer: Age of Sigmar released, news on the Dungeons & Dragons movie, and more! Plus a brand new sketch featuring the origin of a classic spell name.
