    Well now I’m curious to see this. Let me know when they’re up and I’ll direct people to them.

    After hearing Fred try to use “transparency” as a weapon vs. Monte Cooks “words” I thought this should be developed into a thing. I thought of a game of Ryan Macklin’s Mythender RPG. If Fred and Monte were two of the mythenders using transparency and words as weapons, who would be the other two designers in the party and what weapons would they use to destroy the myths Gary Gygax and Dave Arneson? Hensly, Laws, Baker, Morningstar, Wick? Thoughts?

      I think Ken Hite could be part of that party and he would use information because he has a ton of it. He would just hit you with knowledge so hard your brain would swell then explode.

        As I tried to jot down that list I searched for RPG designers and could not find a good list of current RPG designers like I wanted. All the names are in my head from various podcasts and such but I knew I would forget a good one. Ken would be perfect!

        1. Chris Sniezak

          So just listing designers you had a pretty good list going. Others I can think of are Cam Banks, Marc Diaz Truman, Brain Engard, Mike Olson, Lenny Balsera, Clint Black, Rob Heinsoo, Johnathan Tweed, Ron Edwards, Luke Crane, Graham Walmsley, Bruce Cordell, Mike Mearls, Chris Perkins, Epidiah Ravchol, Wies, Hickman. There’s a decent appendix N for game designers who you should probably be checking out

            Thanks Chris. I hope to get all the pr-gens created and put them up on G+ for evaluation. Thanks for the list.
