JordanCon Interview

 Check out this interview I did with the gaming track for JordanCon!

I think it came out pretty well.  Anytime I listen to myself in an interview or on a podcast, I worry about whether I sounded competent and put-together.  I'm way past worrying about how my voice sounds or anything like that, but I do wince at every "um" that manages to make its way in.

Ryan and I discussed a number of things, including the perennial favorite "what is old-school gaming".  My answers are probably middle-of-the-road satisfactory; maybe not hardcore enough to please an old-school zealot, but that's the way it is.

We also talked about Lumberlands a bit, and how zines are a recent fashion in tabletop gaming.  Then we brainstormed an adventure.  Fifty-four minutes of unbridled brilliance.

If you click through on the link above to check out the JordanCon website - they're all virtual this year of course - you'll see they're having an adventure-writing contest.

Most importantly, I made it through the interview without Ryan asking me anything about Robert Jordan...since the only Jordan I've ever read was one of his Conan novels, and I don't even remember which one it was.

I have a couple more "talk about Lumberlands" appearances coming up, but as always I welcome your feedback and questions about anything gaming-related.  I often consider recording a video or stream to talk about Wampus Country, then think better of it, assuming nobody's particularly interesting in that sort of rambling or Q&A.  If I'm wrong on that, let me know.
