    Here's the podcast version of my recent show with two of the team members working on Solasta:

    Solasta: Crown of the Magister is a party-based, tactical turn-based CRPG built on the Fifth Edition game system and currently in development by France-based Tactical Adventures. Solasta also features verticality in dungeon crawling and has accompanying resources for tabletop RPG play. Tactical Adventures team members Emile and Xavier join to share the details. Plus: Implementations versus adaptations, party-based versus companions and the worst football chat ever :)

    Podcast with Al of Scape-IT re: SKALD: Against the Black Priory CRPG.

    Al's a one-man Norwegian dev team with a lot of programming experience and dual CRPG / tabletop RPG love he's bringing into SKALD. Some good discussion here as well regarding how he's using Unity but also sticking with genuine retro development methods.

    First look gameplay of turn-based strategy RPG Graywalkers: Purgatory in Early Access. This video covers the quick missions mode as well as the "Preludes" mode (short campaigns based around a single character in the game). The Preludes section of the video also includes examples of the magic system, and starts around 40 minutes in.

    Darklands discussion episode of Shane Plays.

    Darklands! The cult classic open-world Middle Ages RPG from 1992 that lets you adventure in the Holy Roman Empire during the 15th century… or rather, 15th Century Europe as people believed it to be at the time! Darklands broke a lot of CRPG ground, still has fans, and influenced games like Baldur’s Gate and the Elder Scrolls. Fellow fans Matt Wirkkala and Keith Hiorns join.

    Podcast version:
    https://shaneplays.com/darklands-rpg-podcast/

    YouTube version (same thing, audio only... just a different way to listen for those who prefer to that way)

    Infinitron is there a way to tag that as Darklands content for the site or is that only something mods do?

    I'm not sure what you mean by that. If you want people to see what your current episode is about, you could rename the thread (Thread Tools, top right).

    I was searching for Darklands on the site and found a page of tagged content:
    https://rpgcodex.net/tags.php?id=244

    Was just curious if that could be done on any forum post, or only news items by moderators, etc. I'm guessing the latter :)

    Best,
    Shane

    In celebration of everyone loving the GOTY 2020 results so much, here's another installment of Sword Coast Legends!

    Sword Coast Legends Story Mode #51 - Let's Play

    The Underdark unfolds (barely) as we continue flailing around the Forlorn Cliffs with a terrible sense of direction but make progress working out the main puzzle to continue. Illydia and Hommet level up. We put the beat down on Drow cultists and assassins and various evil beasties.

    The first part of the demo of Geneforge 1 – Mutagen, a unique, truly open-ended fantasy adventure in a strange, new world. You are one of the Shapers, wizards with the awesome power to create life. Want a tool, a trap, an army? You summon it into existence. You create mighty beasts, and they totally obey you. Usually.

    Shane takes a look at the demo of Space Wreck, an intentionally short hardcore roleplaying game. P.S. Cambots suck.



    Game description from Pahris Entertainment SIA: A passenger shuttle is damaged after a pirate attack and you must find replacement parts on a nearby derelict space ship. -- An intentionally short hardcore role playing game that borrows as much as possible from the best isometric RPGs (Fallout, Fallout 2, Arcanum).
