The Lounge: Monte Cook on Invisible Sun

Invisible SunSome game designers have epic stories of their own. Odyssey’s which range decades and cross many games, genre’s and companies. Today we have one such person. From Iron Crown Enterprises to TSR, then WotC, then his own Malhavoc Press, back to WotC, then a brief stint creating video content with geek seekers, before taking Kickstarter and the Gameosphere by storm with Numenera, then the Strange, No Thank You Evil, the Worlds of the Cypher System, and now Invisible Sun. He even managed to fit in a faux feud with the Dungeon Bastard. This man, who has lived the story which I’ve only barely hinted at, is Monte Cook. Enjoy an hour with Monte in this episode of the Lounge.
