Episode 74 – Genius Loci

Genius Loci: Your Setting is the CharacterRPG-Design-Panelcast-sml

Recorded at Metatopia 2014

Presented by Will Hindmarch

Places, rather than protagonists, are often what RPG campaigns have in common because the characters are bespoke but the setting is shared. How does your game’s space inform its setting – and vice versa? How does setting pose and reflect theme? Settings can be characters in their own right, tuned and portrayed through your design to dramatize the themes and issues at the heart of your game. In this seminar, I’ll share some of what I set out to do and some of what I’ve learned designing Project: Dark and its play spaces.
