This time we have Thor Olavsrud, editor of Burning Wheel, Burning Empires, etc, talking to me about editing from the perspective of RPG’s. There’s quite a bit of static in the recording. Thor unfortunately was on the bad microphone, so his stuff had to be really boosted. More coming I swear… I’ve been busy.

Man did I mess up at Origins. More about that later. Hopefully this sounds decent. It starts with some crunch and munch. I got Luke right before the fabled Burning Wheel game where he was too busy lopping off player character’s heads to collect up his Origins award. So I didn’t get to ask him the insightful question, “Dude, what’s it feel like to win an Origins award?” Next time Luke. Next time. Anyway, he needed Vietnamese noodles, unintended bugs, and something to drink. I needed words, so we put the two together. Kind of like your peanut filled chocolate cups.
Luke and I briefly discuss, Dinner with Clyde, and the new Burning Wheel Setting, “The Blossoms Are Falling.”
We discuss finances mainly from the position of a beginning game designer, and / or the Indiepunk game designer. Luke talks about Lulu, versus a small print run, the dangers of large print runs, when to make semi larger print runs, how much to spend on art, editing, etc, and a whole lot more. Some examples Luke used are the Ennie award nominated Dictionary of Mu, and his upcoming “The Blossoms are Falling.”
After the jump Luke’s mysterious last words will be explained….
This is the second of the interviews I made at Forge Midwest. I interviewed Luke Crane, and we discuss his games Burning Wheel, and Burning Empires, people with silly tattoo’s, the pain of the creative process, his game Under a Serpent Sun, it’s theme of suicide, and many other things.
Also Luke states that Robin Laws game Rune will be in the show notes, and as a dutiful servant I include a link here. I’d also feel like a laggard if I didn’t include At The Gate’s website, and Chris Moeller’s, Iron Empires.
I have two more interviews coming, I’m releasing them about once a week.
