Return to Northmoor Meta Episode 1 – D&D and Story Games: Will they Blend?

Posted by Tim - November 17th, 2008

For your entertainment during our holiday hiatus, we present the first Return to Northmoor meta episode!

In this meta episode, Tim sits down with “Nexus of Indie Game Information” Doyce Testerman (creator of RandomWiki and the Firefly Wiki, as well as a published fiction writer and many other things.  

They discuss what Story Games have to offer to the D&D game player, how D&D is really just a diceless RPG, and how you can enhance your D&D game with key Story Game concepts without adding a single new rule.  (Hint: see Episode 1 of Return to Northmoor for one of them.)

This is part one of the discussion, our next episode will conclude it, discussing specific mechanics you can add to D&D to help the system lend support to character development (outside of combat skills).

Here’s Doyce’s massive list of links for your reference:

    I have just found your site during my "return" to Dungeons and Dragons with 4E after a long hiatus. I have been playing since the red and blue boxes, and as a DM I found your conversations articulate, intellelligent and very helpful. Thank you for your work and time and good luck in the future.
