We’ll be posting 1 hour episodes every Sunday night (GMT) and are aiming for 12 full play sessions in this first season.  This first week is Session Zero.

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…

Nordsaga Races

Following on from previous Nordsaga posts which introduced the setting (link) and describe how I’m pivoting the design back towards WFRP (link), let’s take a look at the playable races in Nordsaga.

Nordsaga Pivot

Following on from the previous post which introduced Nordsaga’s setting (link), I’ve been hard at work refining the game’s core mechanics. While it will still be based on the Year Zero Engine, this project started off as a personal project to make a rules-light(ish) Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay (WFRP) clone using a non-d100 dice mechanic. I…

Nordsaga Setting

Nordsaga is set in an alternate history Dark Ages which asks: “What if legendary Viking warrior Sigurd Snake-in-the-Eye had been given the aid of the Aesir (Norse gods) to push back Christianity’s spread?” The answer provides a pagan Norse Empire spread across central and northern Europe, with Emperor Sigurd still somehow ruling over the Imperial…
