RPG designer Mike Myler joins to talk about his new Mists of Akuma Imperial Matchmaker 5E mega adventure project and his new role as editor for E.N. World's EN5ider.

The Imperial Matchmaker sandbox mega adventure for 5E is a full color hardcover book that takes characters from 4th through 10th level as they try to stop the disruption of Emperor Hitoshi's decreed nuptials—or use the grand events to gain glory, fame, and power in the disparate lands of Soburin. Throughout the adventure PCs explore the richly detailed imperial capital of Sanbaoshi while fighting off adeddo-oni emerging from the Mists of Akuma and discovering the subplots woven into the module for their characters, each one of them unique and distinct from their mercenary peers.

GUEST: STEFAN POKORNY AKA “THE DWARVENAUT”

Dwarven Forge was founded in 1996 by artist Stefan Pokorny, a medieval fantasy devotee -- and an avid Dungeons and Dragons enthusiast. As a classically trained, professional painter and sculptor, Stefan decided to create "real" dungeon terrain that would equal his incredible 25mm tall hero figures. After many months of painstaking design, sculpting and painting, he introduced the world's finest pre-painted miniature terrain in 1996.

GUEST: SAVE OR DIE

DM Carl & DM Chrispy of the Save or Die podcast join this week to talk OSR (Old School Revival or Old School Renaissance depending on who you ask) RPG gaming.

Save or Die
http://saveordie.info/

OSR Gaming
http://osrgaming.org

From the Save or Die website:

Remember those thrilling days of yesteryear, when D&D came in a single box? When rules were there to be guided by the Dungeon master, not in control of him or her? Where extrapolation was king and fun was the major goal of any adventure?

Those days have returned! As with the very title of the podcast, one can imagine dangerous dungeons, wily Non-Player Characters, and monsters that might just be able to kill your character regardless of your level?

The Save or Die! podcast intends to cover them all, from the first box set of 1974 to the last of the 1990s box sets. If its Dungeons & Dragons and came in a box, we’ll talk about it. Our fearless hosts will regale listeners with tales of past events and future possibilities. Magic, Monsters, and Mayhem will abound as we delve into the ideas of light rules and heavy role-playing!
