GRC A Master of Djinn Discussion


GRC  A Master of Djinn Discussion
Spoilers for A Master of Djinn in this video!!! For this segment of the Gauntlet Reading Club, the group discusses P. Djèlí Clark's A Master of Djinn, a steampunk fantasy set in an alt-history Cairo. The group discusses some of the ideas surrounding cultural identity and appropriation raised by the book and asks the important question: are the British always evil? The latter part of the discussion focuses on adapting the book to a roleplaying game, considering what games that might suit the feel and tone of A Master of Djinn and the ways that our chosen game, The Veil, does and doesn't work with book. If you would rather skip the parts where we talk about A Master of Djinn, you can go directly to our discussion of adapting it here: P. Djèlí Clark's A Master of Djinn is published by Information about where to find it can be found here: Fraser Simon's The Veil is available through Samjoko Publishing, an independent TRPG publisher.
