OSR News Roundup for December 26th, 2022
We're into the last roundup of the year. It will be a pretty short Roundup this week, as I think a lot of folks were (understandably) busy with the holiday season. Last week's Meet the Publisher Interview was with the duo that make up Crumbling Keep, the publishers of the solo game Marching Order. This upcoming interview will be with Colin Le Sueur, author of Runecairn and We Deal in Lead. In minor news, I've created a subreddit for Third Kingdom Games, where I'll be posting links to the News Roundup, interviews, and gaming releated stuff.
