SavageRiftsCover

This is episode 114 and we are chatting with writer & game designer Sean Patrick Fannon.

Fannon has been writing for tabletop roleplaying games since 1988. Working on such classic games as the very first Star Wars RPG (from West End Games), the superhero RPG Champions and much more. He is the author of a favorite book of mine, The Fantasy Roleplaying Gamer’s Bible. He has also worked for years with computer games too.

But the main topic we have him on to discuss is the upcoming roleplaying game Savage Rifts. Taking the classic Rifts game and transforming it with the popular Savage Worlds rules system.

Fannon tells us about the highly anticipated game, we also talk about why Julie sometimes has a hard time getting excited about role-playing games, and more.
