Episode 56: Campaign Setting – Lankhmar, or the Grand Theft Auto of RPG Settings

Dating back to the 1930s, Lankhmar may have the oldest pedigree as a gaming setting of all time. Evolving from wargames and eventually becoming a setting for Dungeons & Dragons, Runequest, and Savage Worlds, Lankhmar is the prototype for urban roguish fantasy decades before Waterdeep, Thieves World, or Freeport were a twinkle in their creators’ eyes. Get ready for the original sandbox setting that’s more relevant today than ever before, Lankhmar: The City of Thieves!
