You Say Formless Beast of Lovecraftian Nightmares Like It’s a Bad Thing

Sharon, Chris, and Pete sit down with Ron Loz and Scott Jones and talk about their new book: Quantum Black. Quantum Black is a modern horror setting using the Ubiquity engine, the same system that powers the classic Hollow Earth Expeditions. Ron & Scott spent a lot of time working on this book, and kickstarted it late in 2015. The kickstarter was a success and they’re about to put it out, just in time for convention season!

Episode 16 – Andy Klosky and Cold Steel Wardens


The Man With the Bacon-Wrapped Turducken

Now that Origins is over, we can get back to making some shows! And this episode, we interview a game designer I met at the convention! Andy Klosky, who publishes as A.P. Klosky, wrote his own superhero game called Cold Steel Wardens. I got into a demo of the game on the first day of Origins and really enjoyed the game. Rule Zero got to talk to Andy about it and we’re really excited to present this interview. Andy is a great GM and a great game designer. And this game looks to be great as well. You can check out his Kickstarter page or check them out on Facebook under Blackfall Press, LLC

Andy graciously allowed us to use the cover art for his new game, and I gotta say, it’s fantastic.

Personally, I can’t wait for this one.

Don’t forget you can like us on Facebook! Follow us on Twitter as @rulezeropodcast, or email Chris at chris@rulezeropodcast, Pete is pete@rulezeropodcast! We look forward to hearing from you.

While You’re Up, Honey, Could You Slay Me a Dragon?

Chris talks about his brief but enlightening experience as one of the top 32 in Paizo’s RPG Superstar 2013 Contest.

After that brief break, we talk about the experience women have had in gaming. Actual women take part. They were in my house, guys. The feminine trio of Sharon, Amelia, and Alicia join us for a long and complicated discussion about how women are treated, and how women approach gaming.

Don’t think their experiences match up with yours? Did they miss a major point in the discussion? Totally agree with them? We want to hear what you have to say! Join in the discussion by sending us an email (you can even include an MP3 file!) to We’d love to hear from you!
