Each episode is a discussion of a mechanic, tool, or aspect of role playing games. Intended to be system agnostic the discussion pulls from many different systems. The goal is to share experiences with role playing and hopefully give you new things to try in your own games.RSS iTunes
Hail and well met, folks! Welcome to Roll With Inspiration, an RPG advice podcast for game masters and players alike, featuring your friendly neighborhood DM Rick Blatz, and Mariah Lamour, a player in the vast majority of Rick's adventures (including life--we're married!). Our games are different. Whether you're new to DMing or an old pro, we'll offer you practical insights and useful examples on how to proactively collaborate with your players to create amazing tales the whole party will enjoy. In each episode, we'll discuss a specific element of gameplay or design. We use examples from our own experiences, reference elements of storycraft present in books and other popular media, and bring together insightful tips from multiple game systems that can be applied to any adventure. It's not all academia, though. Get a taste of our role-playing style through silly improv segments, clips from actual-play sessions, and finish out the episode with the oft-but-one-sentence notes that Rick uses to guide himself through each of our games. We're excited to have you with us, telling great stories together. See you next session!
