Gamer Leaf sits down with Michael Epstein the designer and director of copperfroggames to talk aboutPigment – A Game for 2-3 Renaissance Painters which ends it’s Kickstarter campaign on Thanksgiving Thu, November 23 2017 9:03 AM MST.

Started Gaming with D&D 3.5. It was a really important part of his life. He accidentally fell into board games. They went to local game store Pandimenium and picked up Dominion. Between that and Betrayl and House on the Hill.

His 1st game was Tattoo! The Game of Ink – A Board Game for 2-4 Players. Was working with Erik Bauer of Gaming Paper on this one (which didn’t make it, but he learned a lot) If it ever sees the light of day friends and family like:

Might enjoy it.

Will be coming back to Kickstarter with lower price and lower shipping rate

Upcoming games: Turf Tag, and Chisseled Deck builder/de-construction game

Cardboard prices have gone up as thousands of factories in china have shut down due to pollution. What I was telling you Seth Hiatt.

Jerry Holkins creator of Penny Arcade really enjoyed it!

Game described as Lords of Waterdeep ( Which Chris Renshaw of Boards & Swords podcast really likes this game) meets Splendor (One of our favorites, an episode upcoming) in half the time of Splendor.

I like the Speed painter pledge option where you can pay extra and get a prototype soonish.

Previews/reviews done with: Cloak and Maple, Unfiltered Gammer recommends it as do painters such as: Rick Berry

CMON recently released Modern Art, for life of me I couldn’t think of name during podcast.

Michael was recently on a podcast with Michael Wokasch of Fairway 3 Games who came out with Starving Artists.

Games artist is EmilyHancock

Pigment was inspired by a Magic The Gathering card. (Not sure how Richard from We’re not Wizards will feel about this, Not to fret though as he quickly redeems himself there.

Michael recently got back into Pokemon the trading card game and opened up 36 packs with a friend.

Some places he’s demo’d the game include: knightmovescafe, EUREKAPUZZLES, ToySoldierGames and PandemoniumBooks

Episode 64: Monster Hunter International RPG: Savage Worlds Edition

Gamer Leaf sits down with Larry Correia (Author of New York Times Best Selling Series Monster Hunter International, which is one of my favorite series of books) to talk about Monster Hunter International RPG: Savage Worlds Edition (Based upon said series) which is now on Kickstarter.

Larry is a big Savage Worlds fan so now he can help with the rules.

Back in 2012 they did a RPG on the Hero system. It was on crunchy side. Barrier to entry was a lot more. So with Savage worlds if you give Larry about 15 mins he can explain it to anyone.

I tell Larry about my background with RPG’s and how we will be starting with Too Many Bones from Chip Theory Games really soon. He gives us his RPG history/background.

10 years ago when he was a new writer at a book signing Dan Wells asked Larry to join Magical Samaria. He also Role Plays with his kids 3 High-schoolers and a kindergartener

RPGing with his kids helped him learn a lot about his kids. As a dad you’ve got to be patient. He’s actually stolen some of their characters from their characters.

Current Gaming group: Pat Tracy (Stole one of his NPC’s for a character in the Son of the Black Sword), Steve Diamond (horror Novelist), (Played with Brad Torggeson for a lot of years), (Paul Gennesse was also in group), A bomb defuser who will go un-named on air, Alan Barr who is owner of Galant Knight games,

Larry initially self published before e-books were a thing. Then Baen found him. He’s been with them ever since. Next year he will have 20 books out across several different series.

Some of his audible readers include:  Bronson Pinchot Oliver WymanRay Porter  does his war machine books, Adam Baldwin from Firefly and Chuck to do The Adventures of Tom Stranger, Interdimensional Insurance Agent (I love these one’s HILARIOUS!)

I love his elves and his orgs, he tells us about their characters and how he got them. LISTEN TO THIS PART.

Allan Barr is the designer, Steve Long does most of the fluffy writing, additional adventure from RPG legend Shawn Carman

AAA: Mayonett 40k app.

Episode 62: ERA: THE CONSORTIUM – A UNIVERSE OF EXPANSIONS 2

Gamer Leaf sits down with Ed Jowett to talk about his latest creation on Kickstarter: Era: The Consortium – A Universe of Expansions 2

Started with Travler RPG, it’s also his inspiration. He’s always been into Sci-Fi

At Durham University they always play 24hr Role Playing Game as a tradition, he goes on to tell the story of Era: The Consortium.

Ed’s working on a Dr Who like horror game which sounds exciting.

I briefly bring up my playing of Middle Earth Roleplaying as a teen. (Remember that: David, Jordan, Michael, Charlene) I also talk about the Glass Cannon Podcast who play Piazo’s Pathfinder

We talk of Tom Anders recent dice chain set that was on Kickstarter.

Ed’s game uses the D10 die.

Dice and stuff plays his RPG’s on their podcast.

John Lewis helps him reformat his fake history book into what his RPG has become today.

5 comics out. 3 of them are Era of The Consortium

Counting down from 1 (Ed considers it their best comic. It’s about time travel so I’m intrigued as I’m a big Back to the Future Fan.)

2 Era of the Empowered (Super Hero comics.) 3rd about to come to kickstarter soonish.

AAA: Hearthstone which is a card game. (Ed plugs his own card games during this portion of the show: Champions of Earth and Evil Overlord)

A moment of silence to all of Ed’s fans for the London Underground as he uses his lack of internet to write more stories.

Best way to stalk them online Amy Allworden gives you lots of updates!

He mentions his interview he had with Richard of We’re not Wizards podcast.

He doesn’t know him personally but, Ed does know of Mark McKinnon so he really is of Wreck and Ruin Fame! Talk of his March re-launch of Wreck and Ruin.

Ed has a bunch more to say. Would you like to hear him ramble on more? (e-mail)

What’s next? Era of the empowered or of the Chosen will
