Powered by the Apocalypse: Penda Tomlinson

Rat King Events, News, Speakers

We’re pleased to announce the second speaker for our second event, on the theme of Modding, is one of the Game Rats’ own: Penda Tomlinson!

Pen and paper roleplaying games started out as mods of wargames (D&D) and modding runs throughout its history. More recently the indie RPG Apocalypse World has become the basis of a huge number of mods and hacks. Penda will discuss Monsterhearts, a ‘Powered by the Apocalypse’ game about teenagers, who are also monsters, and their messy lives. He believes it and its creator Avery Alder are key factors in the popularity of the ‘Powered by the Apocalypse’ modding community, which he’ll cover in his talk.

Do you make games or work in the games industry – interested in attending? Tickets for our next event, Game Rats: Modding are available now!
