Welcome to the 57th regular episode of the Play On Target podcast (PLOT for short). It’s the end of the world as we know it. Save vs. radiation poisoning! Post-apocalypse settings have been around nearly as long as there have been RPGs. This episode focuses on what makes a good post-apocalypse game and just how broad the definition of the term is.

Horror Genre in RPGs

March 28th, 2013 | Posted by DMSamuel in Podcast Episode - (5 Comments)

Welcome to the seventh episode of the Play On Target podcast (PLOT for short). In this episode we discuss the horror genre in RPGs. We talk about common and well-loved horror RPGs as well as lesser known horror RPGs. This conversation ranges from the types of games and special mechanics that work well in the horror genre to some tips and tricks you can use in your game to bring despair down upon the table. We hope you enjoy listening to the discussion. Did we get anything wrong? Let us know in the comments or start a discussion on RPG Geek.
