For those that know him, Postworldgames Jim Pinto is one of the most prolific game designers out there. If you ask him, he’ll tell you he’s got like a billion games that he’s designed (might be a slight exaggeration on my part there). But he has certainly created a few in his time. ...

The Silence of Hollowind is a new urban fantasy RPG. For those that don’t know what that is, it means a fantasy world, but set more in cities akin to what you’d find in a noir setting. So less elves hopping between trees and more dwarves in trenchoats heading into their office job. In thi...
