About Ben

I'm a geek. A nerd, a dweeb, whatever. Yes I owned garb, yes I still own medieval weaponry. And yeah, I could kick your butt in Mechwarrior the CCG. I love video games, role playing games, tactical board games and all forms of speculative fiction. I will never berate someone for wanting to be a Jedi and take everything Gary Gygax ever wrote as gospel. Well, all of this but that last bit.

This here is a special, additional feature thrown into Indie Talks! Nearly four years ago, four of us got together to relive our childhood by playing Palladium Fantasy RPG (1st Edition).

We’re playing the Palladium Fantasy RPG (1st edition, thank you very much) and enjoying the hell out of it. No maps, no minis, no censors, almost no editing! In this, […]

Indie Talks Episode 47 - Stephen Hood talks Storium

Stephen Hood folks! Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve probably heard of Storium by now. An online, storytelling game that’s currently thriving on Kickstarter.

I’ve got to say that I’m personally very excited for this project as well. It scratches so many gaming and creative […]
