Matt and Kehaar take another turn off from the Legendary Creators series to speak to James Desborough, Game Designer of Dark and Controversial Games, to speak on his current project; bringing to life John Norman’s “Gor”. This series of novels inspires a number of reactions across fandom, many of them unfavorable, but it also has its own cult (and as we discuss, Actual Cult) following. We also get into:

  • Adapting properties with devoted followings
  • Gor as a living, gameable world for its inhabitants
  • Dark Fantasy vs The Real World
  • “Butting heads” (James words!) over Gamergate

James website can be found at and he can be seen and heard at
