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
