James Lowder: Munchkin Book – Adventure Party #41

Play

James Lowder is a hero of mine and it was a true honor to speak with him. While his current project is working with the Munchkin folks, he was one of the people who helped bring the D&D world of Ravenloft to life. He is also known as an author, editor, and annual game gift giver extraordinaire. A few of his many notable works include “Prince of Lies” and “Knight of the Black Rose”.  He has just finished work on a book of absolute silliness, called the Munchkin Book–The Official Companion. We’re going to talk with him about how this project came about,  get some Munchkin stories, being a writer vs. an editor, and working in the Ravenloft world.
