NvP 3x05 - The Mountain Witch with Timothy Walters Kleinert We discuss the Indie RPG The Mountain Witch with its designer Timothy Walters Kleinert. We ask him about how he designed some of the very unique elements of the game; specifily how he turned player-vs-player conflict into a fun time, how he made splitting the party actually a good thing, and how he solved the problem of meta game knowledge.

We also talk to Tim about his planned projects, but you have listen to find out!

NvP 3x04 - Pirates of the Spanish Main with Mike Selinker We discuss the card game Pirates of the Spanish Main with its co-designer Mike Selinker. We discuss the challenges in creating a self-contained collectible card game.

We learn about Mike Selinker's other passion: his blog, The Most Beautiful Things where Mike gives his opinion of some of the most beautiful things. Also, listen for his answer to the age old question: who would win in a fight, the ninja or the pirates?
