A podcast about topics in game design featuring the many people who come together to make games possible.

Aug 1, 2009

Ken Burnside is the creative director at Ad Astra Games.

Minimus is a 4 page role playing game (RPG) that is a complete generic roleplaying system. It has everything to cover all the standard DnD situations, minus the spell lists and etc. The interesting thing is the collaborative character creation system and the goal driven reward system.

We focus our discussion with Ken on the way he used his mechanics to foster the dynamics he considers to be key to a good role play session.
