Nick Tofani and Gradient Descent

Artist Nick Tofani joins us this week on the Vintage RPG podcast to talk about horror in RPGs, particularly the Mothership adventure he illustrated, the unpleasant-in-the-best-way Gradient Descent. It’s dark outside, something is howling in the wind and pale shapes with dead eyes are shambling nearer, so make sure the doors are locked and turn up the volume on this one. We’re sure you’ll make it till morning.
