Rach Shelkey and Rich Rogers interviewed me again for their excellent podcast, +1 Forward. It’s always a pleasure being on their show! This episode was interesting and a little technical, about the problems and opportunities to scale campaign play throughout a PbtA game. It’s a tricky problem, because there typically aren’t any GM-side adjustments you can make to a PbtA game’s mechanical challenge. PC stats keep going up and the GM is left with raising the fictional stakes in the face of ever growing competence.
Anyway, good episode, lots of ideas bouncing around. Give it a listen.
