Incantations Episode 17 - Apostates and Design Diary 5

We're discussing the final "order" of the Invisible Sun RPG, the Apostates. Then we talk about Monte Cook's fifth design diary about dead vislae, and theorize it was totally inspired by that fantastic Swayze film, Ghost.

Incantations Episode 14 - Collaborative Surreal Storytelling

We've got an interesting show for you today. We've only got one segment this time and we're talking to an actual human for it. We're talk to Mike Q. Hanlon who is teaching a class in which his students are using automatism to write a surreal play. Perhaps there's something us RPG players can learn from him.
