Two heavy hitters from different areas of the gaming universe come together for the latest episode of The Little Metal Dog Show. First of all legendary designer Richard Launius comes on board to talk about not only his classic game Arkham Horror but also new projects such as Dragon Rampage, Pirates vs Dinosaurs and Elder Sign. There’s also a brief soujourn into the world of designing Major League Baseball uniforms…
New York Times bestselling author RA Salvatore is my second guest. A published writer since the mid 1980s, his creations are amongst the most loved by Dungeons & Dragons fans, the most famous invariably being dark elf Drizzt Do’Urden. With his latest book Neverwinter coming out this week, we discuss the writing process, his most iconic character and the effect that his writing has on both him and his readers.
Don’t forget to listen all the way through to the end of the show if you want to find out more about the upcoming Essen giveaways! There’ll be a little gap between this episode and the next as I prepare everything for the journey to Germany – if you’re there at all for Spiel, give me a shout over on Twitter (where I’m @idlemichael if you want to follow my ramblings) and make sure to say hello! I’ll be doing a big pre-Essen post with more information – hopefully including a meet-up – closer to the time. Thanks for listening!
