Topic -    In one of my favorite interviews ever, I had the pleasure of sitting down with someone who changed the way I looked at story structure, character developement, and gaming as a whole. John Scott Tynes wrote Puppetland more than 20 years ago, making him a pioneer in the "storytelling" game world. The concept was a twisted mixture of the familiar and the macabre, where the innocence of childhood sensibilities rides the center line, crashing headlong into visceral and existential horror. There is a new, (beautiful!) edition of Puppetland available now.  John tells us the story of how it came to be. In one golden hour, you and your friends tell a story that may very well stick with you forever, for better or worse... ...at the very least, you'll never look at puppets the same. Enjoy the show!   Media -  John's website - http://www.JohnTynes.com Purchase the Puppetland RPG - On Amazon On Indie Press Revolution ArcDream Publishing - http://arcdream.com/home/ The New Delta Green RPG -  http://www.delta-green.com/ The new Unknown Armies 3rd Edition RPG - http://www.atlas-games.com/unknownarmies/ RPPR Actual Play podcast- http://actualplay.roleplayingpublicradio.com/ Holospark, the video game start-up where John works - http://www.holospark.net/ The Impossible Travel Agency (John's first virtual-reality project with Holospark) - http://impossibletravelagency.com/ The original version of Puppetland - http://johntynes.com/revland2000/rl_puppetland.html The (very "drippy") cover art from the 1999 release from Hogshead Publishing:   John Supported: The Siblings Trouble storytelling card game - http://www.pencilfirstgames.com/the-siblings-trouble/ Just for fun, here is the Santa Claus, Punch,and Judy video that I was talking about on the show: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WNU5lvrIeGY
