Roleplayers Chronicle posted an interview Sunday with author Paul S. Kemp. Unlike some of the recent Kemp interviews, this one delves into roleplaying and Paul’s Dungeons & Dragons days.
What would be your dream gaming group and who would play what classes?
PSK: Oh, hell, how about Felicia Day as an elven sorcerer, Nathan Fillion as a rogue, and Neil Gaiman as a cleric of the god of the dead. I’d play a paladin and Ed Greenwood would DM. That’d work.
And it also touches on The Hammer and the Blade.
RPC: Could you tell our readers a little about how magic works in The Hammer and the Blade?
PSK: For Nix, it works only with difficulty. J More seriously, I want to keep magic a very mysterious, wondrous kind of thing in Ellerth. The only common element across all uses of magic in Ellerth (so far) is that it requires at least some verbalization in the Language of Creation. But after that, the practice of magic can and does vary considerably by practitioner.
