D6G Ep 191: Savage Rifts & DMing a Tactical Narrative

Ross Watson, RPG writer about town, is back in the third chair!

We catch up with Ross on his latest project, Savage Rifts: Adapting the classic Rifts RPG into the Savage Worlds system.  How did the Kickstarter end up? Where is the project now and what can we look forward to?

Later we dive into a DM'ing tips and tricks session when Russ tries to create a new term: "The Tactical Narrative."  What the heck is that and why should you try to make one as a game master?

Owen Staton, the official D6G Welsh ambassador, returns to the 3rd chair!

Owen has been playing quite a bit of Kings of War, combine that with Russ and Craig's impressions of the game at Adepticon and we thought it was time to dive deep into the game and talk about how it works, what makes it unique, and how it compares to Age of Sigmar.
