episode 69 — shining host player's guide with pete woodworth

We’re returning to the world of Live-Action RolePlaying this week, as we flip through the second and final of the Mind’s Eye Theatre books produced for Changeling. Author and developer Peter Woodworth returns to talk about the creation of the Shining Host Player’s Guide. Even if you prefer throwing dice around the table to dressing up and cantripping through the woods, there’s plenty in this volume that enriches the setting. Mannikins with stories, Shadow Court slice of life, secret society emblems, elaborate court politics… as we draw ever closer to the end of the 2nd edition line, it’s nice to be reminded that there was quality content even in the jaws of Judgment. (It’s also nice to be reminded of the community’s passion for keeping the game alive.)

The book is available for purchase at https://www.storytellersvault.com/product/1490?affiliate_id=3063731, and you can find/contact Pete at his website, Positively Woodworthian: https://peterwoodworth.com/! For our part, behold a mishmash of social media:

Josh Hillerup (any pronoun) leads a secret society of Canadian nockers whose emblem is a maple leaf soaked in engine grease.
Pooka G (any pronoun/they) hasn’t tried to wear prosthetic ears since the Spirit Gum Incident of 2008.

The thing about performance, even if it’s only an illusion, is that it is a celebration of the fact that we do contain within ourselves infinite possibilities.
—Daniel Day-Lewis
