VGHVI Latest Thoughts Podcast with Roger Travis and Jeff Howard, author of Quests: Design, Theory, and History in Games and Narratives. Roger and Jeff discuss the meaning of magic systems in games, and Jeff's work on his forthcoming game, Arcana Manor. Produced (heroically) by Randy Ma.
(Here's a direct link to the podcast.)
Jeff's Howard's Designing Quests site, with information on Arcana Manor here.
I'll try to have more detailed show notes up later this week, but I'm headed to Pittsburgh early tomorrow and I wanted to get the podcast up before I left. Enjoy!
