49: Dark Elves, Drunk Bears, and Sean Bean - interview with tabletop RPG designer Grant Howitt

Grant Howitt designs tabletop roleplaying games. Some are utterly bonkers and demand the use of hats and/or toilet paper. Some are dark and challenging such as his latest work, Spire. All of them have a distinct Grant Howitt flavour runining through them. Robin met Grant to talk about dicks and the rules governing them, how Brexit inspired a game of revolutionary dark elves, battle twister, convention gaming, and how he gained belief in his own skills as a a creative.

Roleplaying games needs a Grant Howitt, and so do you.
