Once upon a time, Marissa Kelly and Mark Diaz Truman had the wild idea of starting a role-playing game company. Today, they recruit top talent, score six-figure Kickstarters, and create award-winning games. How did all this come to be? Ben Riggs explores that question in this free-wheeling conversation.
Ben’s book on RPG adventure design, Encounter Theory, is on DriveThruRPG. Click here to pick up this essential volume!
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.
