Fireside Chat: Uncanny Skullkickers with - Jim Zubkavich

"GM: Each of the Skullkickers story arcs has differed in their style and focus. What can readers look forward to as Eighty Eyes on an Evil Island kicks off? Zub: Part of the goal of Skullkickers is playing into certain fantasy cliches/tropes with each story arc. We've thrown in undead monsters, medieval city/underworld adventuring, thieves guilds, faerie folk, pirates, sea monsters... all kinds of different sword & sorcery elements all slamming together and our 'heroes' running ramshod over each and every one. This one is our 'jungle/exploration' arc so all of those tropes will be coming out to play- tropical weather, savage creatures, rainforest survival, ancient temples and apes, lots of apes." 4.5 out of 5 http://www.theweeklycrisis.com/2013/02/fireside-chat-with-jim-zub-of-uncanny_25.html
