M&B34: Game Design 1 – Worldbuilding

Due to popular demand, episode 34 marks the start of a new Game Design series here on Mud & Blood. Rather than produce a bunch of dry episodes about the theory of game design (arguably only of interest to a small number of people), we’ve decided to actually design a game live on the show, debating and thinking aloud each step of the way. What we’ll end up with is a suitably muddy & bloody game which we’ll share when the process is complete. In this inaugural episode, we do the first step – worldbuilding. So grab your drink of choice and join us as we zero in on the creating the setting of Mud & Blood!

M&B33: Into the Wilds

In Episode 33, we take a look at The Wilderness. Many fantasy settings describe the wilderness as a wild and dangerous place, lethal to the unwary and full of monsters. Yet many games don’t go any further, leaving wilderness survival and travel as something to either be handwaved or ignored completely. Yet treating the wilderness as a dangerous and unpredictable part of your game can help make the setting feel even more compelling. Join us as we march west of civilisation, and tackle the subject of Wilderness.

M&B31: Graeme Davis – Artist Spotlight

In Episode 31, we are joined once again by roleplaying industry veteran Graeme Davis. This week’s episode marks the start of the Artist Spotlight show, wherein we get in the artists behind the games, to discuss their careers and other projects they’ve been working on. For those of us in the TTRPG scene, Graeme is probably best known for his prodigious work on Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay (WFRP), but he has also worked on many other tabletop RPGs, video games and works of non-fiction.
