Hello, and welcome to Shining Moon: A Speculative Fiction Podcast, Episode 7. Today we’ll continue our series by asking questions about writing games, particularly roleplaying games. This is a subject dear to my heart, because I’ve spent twenty years of my life playing RPGs, mostly in written form, in play-by-post games. I am a big proponent of how they help to develop writers’ skills at worldbuilding, characterization, and plot.
My guest today is Eran Aviram.
Eran's been part of the gaming industry since 2002, as a writer, editor, translator, designer, shop owner, publisher, event organizer and professional GM. Today he's part of Son of Oak's team, working on City of Mist, Queerz! and Metro:Otherscape, translates Savage Worlds into Hebrew, and self-publishes single player games on nnesk.itch.io. His main passion is turning more people into players, and then giving those players the tools that’ll help them enjoy their games more.
