Summary: I realized that there was no existential barrier to just asking David McGrogan (Noisms, of Monsters & Manuals) if he’d like to do an interview, so I did, and he agreed! Tonight I will add a list of the things that we discussed. For now, have at it.
David’s blog contains commandingly lucid meta-discussion of roleplaying games as well as new game content following on his sui generis Yoon-Suin and other projects such as the Peridot. He has recently released the first region of his new project: the Fixed World, a place where the sun never shifts, so that multiple stages of spring or fall might be found in (and sectionally define) the same town.
