    After a quiet post-holiday week, the second episode of Matt Barton's interview with Colin McComb is up. As expected, Colin can't say anything yet about Baldur's Gate III, so Matt decides to again circle back and talk some more about his work at TSR, specifically the AD&D tabletop adventure Dragon Mountain and the Birthright, Ravenloft & Planescape campaign settings. Colin says Planescape was primarily the creation of Zeb Cook, but he does take credit for inventing the concept of being mazed.


    It seems like the next episode might start with some discussion of the commercial reception of Planescape and all these other unusual campaign settings, after which we might finally get to Colin's video game development work. I'm not sure how many episodes are left, but Matt has already recorded his next interview with Annie VanderMeer and will soon interview Kevin Saunders as well. It's a Matt Chat renaissance.

    Nostalgic! I didn't expect them to go into details over his TSR days but I guess it was inevitable.
    I also recommend Calvino's Invisible Cities to anyone looking for new perspectives on world.

    If it helps, the interview part of this video is just 24 minutes, not the full 40.

    Does this video touch upon the incident when Colon McCuck vigorously supports white-knighting a crazed sjw colleague when she calls for genocide of men?

    Citation: Bruh check retardo about some crazy azn sjw femoid contract writer for NumaNuma tweeting she fantasizes about killing men; and Colon McCuck coming to her defense...quite vigorously

    Birthright: Gorgon's Alliance is sadly underrated. The RPG/Party dungeon mode is completely terrible granted, but the realm management is superb and has a ton of depth.
