If you’d like to see our review criteria, all of our RPG reviews are collected at mbcast.co/reviews.

M&B17: Coriolis Interview with Fria Ligan

Liam and Matt are joined by Nils Karlén & Kosta Kostulas from Fria Ligan to discuss their sci-fi masterpiece, Coriolis. This game shakes up the sci-fi norm by ditching the European cultural model and instead aims (and hits) an “Arabian Nights in Space” feel. With the enigmatic Dark Between the Stars providing a subtle supernatural threat, and combat which is gritty and lethal, this game definitely pushes all the right Mud & Blood buttons.

Oh, and Matt will be running an Actual Play series featuring this game – Session Zero will be released in just over a week!

M&B13: Degenesis Rebirth Review

In Episode 13, we review the criminally under-played Degenesis Rebirth by SixMoreVodka, without a doubt the best looking tabletop roleplaying game in existence. Matt also flicks through both volumes of the core rulebook in his full, accompanying visual review over on our YouTube channel – follow this link: mbcast.co/youtube13

We have also slightly revised our review criteria, and have created a new page to collect all our RPG reviews: mbcast.co/reviews.

Mud & Blood: SixMoreVodka Studio Visit

In July, I visited the Berlin studio of SixMoreVodka (SMV). I had been invited there to collect some review copies of their beautiful Tabletop RPG – Degenesis Rebirth (shortened to just Degenesis for the rest of this post) – a two-volume post-apocalyptic Tabletop RPG (TTRPG) in a white slipcase with minimalist white covers. This week…
