RPG Design PanelCast

edited November 2012 in Directed Promotion
Hey folks,
Over the last couple years, I have gone out of my way to record as many RPG design/publishing panels and seminars as possible. As a result, I wound up coordinating with Fred Hicks and Jason Morningstar to get recordings of a good portion of the Panels at Metatopia 2012. In order to make these a bit more accessible, I have done some minor editing and tossed these into a podcast feed (http://www.genesisoflegend.com/feed/panelcast) and on my site. I wanted to front-load these recordings a bit, so I put out the first four over the last week, and will release them weekly after that point.

Episode 1: The Coolest Game you Never Heard Of
Episode 2: My Dearest Failure: Games That Didn’t Work and Why
Episode 3: The Graphic Design and Layout Panel
Episode 4: Care and Feeding of Artists
Episode 5, (Next weekend) will be "Editing and Organizing Game Text"

Hope you enjoy this, and feel free to spread the word!

    Are they in any specific order at all?
  • Thank you for doing this!

    I slightly organized them on theme, but they cover such diverse topics that I was uncertain on any logical order. I wanted to cluster the Art and Layout early, for example.

    It's my pleasure that I can give back to the community at least a little.
  • Hey Jason, all the links to shows and the feed on your site are totally borked for me. Anyone else having similar problems?
  • It's workin' over here still! I'm using Firefox on a Windows 7 box, so if you're different that might be related.

    Sweet stuff Jason! I'm always excited when I see people post these, so having a regular source is awesome.
  • Huh. Now it's working for me. Never you mind, Jason! Thanks for this!

    Yeah, they had been borked for a while there as a result of changing the name of the folder on my server. That should be fixed now.

    Glad that I could help people out and give them access to these seminars. Everyone should have access to the collected wisdom that was Metatopia, and there are a handful of other convention seminars in the feed as well.

    [Episode 6] "Nature doesn't repeat itself, but it rhymes."

    This is beautiful. Where is it from?
  • edited December 2012
    It appears to be a quote from Mark Twain, "History Doesn't Repeat Itself, but It Does Rhyme" I do agree that it's beautiful.
