In today’s episode of Signal Boost, Jen Zink interviews Tracy Barnett, podcaster, writer, and TTRPG designer, about their work as a TTRPG designer, from their first game, School Daze, to their most recent (as of the recording of the podcast, which we must apologize for posting 2 months later than expected) big project, Iron Edda! Jen finds out all sorts of interesting things about TTRPGs, from how the independent TTRPG design community has exploded, how new TTRPGs are redefining what a game is, to the themes that Tracy likes to explore in their own games, and more. This is a treasure trove of information so have a listen!

Then Jen talks to Evan Winter, self-published turned traditionally published, author of the debut epic fantasy novel, Rage of Dragons! They discuss why Evan originally decided to self-publish Rage of Dragons and how that eventually brought The Burning series to Orbit, including new edits to the originally published manuscript, how his time as a Music Video Director helps Evan plot both the larger plot of his books and individual scenes, some of the influences for the book, including his childhood memories of Africa, the magic system of Rage of Dragons, and more!!

We hope you enjoy the episode!
