Episode 2: B is for Blood of Heroes
In this episode, Travis and Victoria discuss the swords and sorcery setting they’re building.
AD&D, Middle Earth Role Playing (MERP), Rolemaster (RM), Mage: The Ascension (Sorry I couldn’t remember the name at the time), StarWars the RPG
Wasteland, Bethesda generally
Harry Potter, JRR Tolkien, Robert E. Howard, Mickey Zucker Reichert
The majesty and prevalence of dragons, ritual magic/divine magic, blood magic/demonic magic
Occasional fireworks because it was July 4th
Swords (technology level) and Sorcery (there is magic)
The flavor of Republican (and possibly Imperial) Rome (technology and flavor)
Dragons as rare but incredibly powerful
Magic as truly arcane, also possibly establishing some “good vs. evil” possibilities, but it’s complicated.
