A Different Sort of Witcher Video
Also on YouTube, WitcherGeorge used The Witcher TRPG as an official lore source to provide an update on the six witcher schools. As much as we appreciate our game being played, we also love the idea of witcher fans across the world using our RPG to better understand a beloved property.
Other R. Talsorian Notes
Just because it was a big week for The Witcher TRPG doesn’t mean the rest of R. Talsorian Games was ignored by the internet!
- Want some more insight into the upcoming Cyberpunk 2077 from CD Projekt Red? Our founder, Mike Pondsmith, spoke with Polygon and offers his thoughts on playing the game in first person as well as the inherent political nature of the genre of cyberpunk. In his own words: “Morality is cyberpunk”.
