We continue with our conversations recorded from the GenCon exhibition floor.

Chris Birch is the founder and publisher of Modiphius Entertainment, Sam Webb is the head of Roleplaying Game Development at Modiphius, and Aaron Pollyea sits on the writing team for Star Trek: Adventures.

Ever since kickstarting AchTung Cthulhu they've become a powerhouse in the tabletop community and company fostering new talent and 3rd party publishers. Along with talking about Star Trek: Adventures (because of COURSE Justin wanted to talk about that!) we also learn more about Fallout and the other properties that Modiphious is working on as well as an insight into the 2d20 system and the philosophy of their game designs.

This summer we’re taking time away from playing our games to meet the people who make our games and lead our communities.

Who is James Mendez Hodes? He’s the kind of person where, if you’re in a hallway of game designers and community leaders, he’s the one they say you should talk to right now and record the entire conversation.

Mendez (he/him) is a game designer, martial artist, cultural consultant, professional game master, writer, editor, and poet whom you might know from role-playing games such as 7th Sea, Scion, and Thousand Arrows; or from essays like “Orcs, Britons, and the Martial Race Myth” and “May I play a character from another race?” He has an academic background in West African religion, Eastern classics, dance, and English literature. His interests include hip hop, weird invertebrates, and collecting stuffed animals. He lives in the greater New York metropolitan area on traditional Lenape land.

He runs games, he writes games, he writes about running games.
