Encounter Party is a slick piece of D&D entertainment so well-acted and so well-edited that it is more like audio drama than anything else. Our own Sarah Babe plays a minotaur on the podcast, and quite simply, if you enjoy Plot Points, you have to check out Encounter Party.
If you like Encounter Problem, check out Ned Donovan's other piece of white-hot media, a vampire musical web series, The Hunted: Encore. Yes, you read that right. Vampire. Musical. Web series.
Plot Points is going to try out a new feature: an Appendix N book club! Prof. Jason Carney is an expert in pulp fiction, and RPG superstar and Pathfinder author Clinton J. Boomer knows fantasy RPGs like the back of his hand. We gather these two phenoms to discuss authors that influenced D&D, starting with “The Return of the Sorcerer” by Clark Ashton Smith. Read it here in the next few weeks if you want to be ready for the episode!
Like Plot Points? Support it on Patreon at the $2 level, and you’ll get a sneak peek into Ben’s book about the sale of TSR to Wizards of the Coast! This chapter concerns TSR West, an effort by TSR to open an LA office devoted to producing comic books, an effort that failed rather impressively. It is the product of a dozen interviews with professionals from comics, gaming, and Hollywood, and as far as I can reckon, it is a tale entirely untold until now.
