Painting Your World with Cannon Fodder

This blog was written by the talented Marcos. As a long time contributor to the podcast you’ve definitely heard his voice or at least felt his presence via his mad editing skills.

Zombie Threat: Runners or Walkers?

It might be best to open with this video, it’s a plot hole explainer from Shaun of the Dead and it’s pretty neat. I’m a massive fan of satirical movies. They have this great way of exposing the weaknesses (and many of the strengths) of a given genre at storytelling. This scene lays out one…

Zombie Head Smashing

This blog continues on from the prior entry dealing with zombies and, since apparently I forgot to upload this one from last week I’ll be uploading not one, but two zombie blogs (today and friday)! I almost never talk about the Worldcraft Club outside of folks who are actively interested. Except for my wife. She…

Phandalin – The Forgotten Builds

We love TTRPGs here at WCC, since it allows creatives of all kinds to build small audiences of their creations and ideas. The Forgotten Builds is a segment where I, Jon here, evaluate the world of Dungeons & Dragons 5th Edition, The Forgotten Realms. See, it’s no secret that some of the published books for…

Water Water Everywhere

Having just aired an episode on rivers I figured I’d expand even more on what we discussed. Ya see, when we put an episode together we make a metric ton of notes. Much of that content makes it into our episode then a bunch gets left out. Here’s a taster of what our discussions about…

What’s the deal with WCC and Tabletop RPG? Part Two

So now, for the most important question, why should you care about Tabletop? As an author, artist, game designer, anyone making a fictional world why would TTRPG be important? RPGs pop up everywhere from Community, Freaks and Geeks, to Adventure Time and Gravity Falls. Matt Mercer has recently risen to, not inconsiderable, fame creating amazing…

No matter your disposition toward it, whether totally unfamiliar or deeply engrossed with it, you’re going to get something out of that content. Over…

Fantasy vs Reality: Pace

I was told, quite accurately, that time would speed up as I aged. Though the experience for sending off for a toy after collecting enough cereal box tops is one that is restricted to children of the 80s and 90s, everyone can remember being a child and having to wait for something. And sure enough,…
