D&D Podcast, Random Wizard Interviews

I've had a couple of "interviews" appear online recently.

The first is at the Random Wizard blog. Check out some of his other old-school focused posts while you're there.

The second is the D&D Podcast from May 10 with Mike Mearls, Jeremy Crawford, and Rodney Thompson. We talk about the genesis of 2nd Edition AD&D, Al Qadim, and other topics related to the late '80s and early '90s. It was a fun recording session, and it turned into an excellent podcast, in my biased opinion.

I'm generally a bit reluctant to do these types of things because there's always that part of me that thinks, "aww, people don't really care about what I have to say." If I really believed that, of course, I wouldn't bother with this blog -- yet I constantly prod myself to bother with the Howling Tower more, not less, and interviews and podcasts usually draw positive reactions.

Just two and a half weeks remain until I get on a plane and fly to Dallas for another installment of the North Texas RPG Con. A month ago, my prep work for this show was steaming along at flank speed and I thought I had everything well in hand. Now I'm closing into my usual pre-convention, gotta-get-everything done cram sessions. I'm not hitting the panic button yet; there's still time to get everything finished, if nothing goes wrong and I don't let myself fall into the usual trap.

  1. Thanks for answering some questions from some random fan that you did not know. Your interview inspired me to try and interview as many people that I could find who might be willing to talk about the old days at TSR, or even more recent happenings in the RPG industry.
