ETAO PODCAST, EPISODE 137.
Heather Flowers has expanded the world of EXTREME MEATPUNKS FOREVER into a TTRPG, in collaboration with Aura Belle. Here both of the authors talk about the rough-and-ready nature of the Powered by the Apocalypse system on which MEATPUNKS is based, and the thoroughly American nightmare that is Meatworld—plus, how to invite true improvisation for GMs and players alike, and “how to depict harm without causing it.”
Brief spoilers about a major villain in the MEATPUNKS sourcebook from 0:28:45 to 0:29:28.
You can get the free quickstart edition of EXTREME MEATPUNKS FOREVER right now, and the full game soon, over at Sinister Beard Games.
