Return to Northmoor Meta Episode 2 – D&D and Story Games: Will they Blend? (Part 2)

Posted by Tim - December 1st, 2008

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

In this meta episode, Tim concludes his chat with “Nexus of Indie Game Information” Doyce Testerman (creator of RandomWiki and the Firefly Wiki, as well as 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 two of the discussion, discussing specific mechanics you can add to D&D to help the system lend support to character development (outside of combat skills), as well has how D&D does or does not handle failure.

 See the first episode for all the various links.
