How does world building affect the mechanics of your game? Nathan took this question to Patrick McNary of Orcs Unlimited, a man who is very familiar with unique game worlds. We get to talk about how the setting of Teddy Bear Island, Bad Day to be a Kaiju, Ink and more helped to building the mechanics. We also find out the general things that get fleshed out in the game world thanks to mechanics.

Also, we find out why Pat still plays D&D 1st Edition.Screen Shot 2018-11-04 at 2.40.08 PM
