Podcast Episode – The RPG Interview Room – Adventures in the East Mark with Extra-Dimensional Publishing

October 22nd - via:
If you’re not tired of hearing me to on about it, please let me give you another reason to be. I have *loved* Aventuras en la Marca del Este – Adventures in the East Mark – since I saw it printed for the first time in 2010. I bought two copies of the game and I showed it around to some British companies because I thought that, with the amazing artwork, lovely layout and the perfectly crafted OSR feel of the game, it should be translated into English for a lot more people to enjoy. (Read More)

October 15th - via:
I will not be talking about any miniatures in this post, don't worry. Instead, I'll be talking about the current Kickstarter for an English translation of the Spanish retroclone Aventuras en La Marca del Este ("Adventures in the East Mark").
