Save or Die Side Adventure 12: "J. Eric Holmes Seminar at NTXRPG 2016"

Unearthed from the deepest and darkest parts of the Save or Die audio vault is this gem, our audio footage of the 2016 J. Eric Holmes seminars hosted by Chris Holmes and Black Blade Publishing. Due to some technical problems on-site, we didn't get the recording going until right after the first reading of a page from Holmes' book Maze of Peril. However, the 'meat' of the seminar is all there...so bon appetit!

It's all here at: http://saveordie.info

* This recording includes the reading from Maze of Peril (unlike ours), as well as a pdf of the handout which was passed out at the seminar.

Did you guys not also record a video of the event? I was watching it live and online (at some ungodly hour, IIRC), and I thought DM Liz had a camera set up and pointing in the right direction - unlike the official camera, which gave us a great view of the wallpaper to the right of the audience!  ;D

Yes, we do have video but alas no place to post it from. Thus, the audio track!

What do you talk about at a J. Eric Holmes seminar? Did he wrote any other RPG books besides the basic book?

Listen and find out! ;)

Seriously, his son Chris discussed his dad's other work (Fantasy Roleplaying Games and his short stories) along with his book Maze of Peril and the upcoming compilation of all JEH's D&D fiction in Tales of Peril; to be published by Black Blade. Oh, and it will include his article "Confessions of a Dungeon Master" from Psychology Today magazine.

Holmes is not just a Basic Book, it's a way of life!

More seriously, Fj, have a look at the Zenopus Archives if you want an inkling of how much there is to talk about. A greatly underappreciated edition, in my hubristic and highly biased opinion.  8)
