Asunder is the dark fantasy RPG (powered by the Shadow of the Demon Lord system) set in a dying world with no metal where humans have transformed plants and insects into living weapons. Adam Lawson and Robert J. Schwalb join to discuss! How long is the average tabletop RPG campaign (the answer may surprise you)? What’s it like to make an RPG for the first time compared to what you THINK it will be like? The “Dread to GURPS” scale of RPG crunch. Shane has one of Robert’s sweaty custom leather wristbands.
