Grant Howitt of Rowan, Rook, & Decard

Published on: 20th April, 2022

Grant Howitt is a game designer at Rowan, Rook, and Decard. You’ve probably heard of at least two of his games, Honey Heist and Goblin Quest, both one-page RPGs that have spread like wildfire across the TTRPG world. He’s created tons more where that came from, including dozens of one page games, and also full TTRPGs with rule books, maps, soundtracks, adventures, and more!

It takes incredible creativity, skill, and endurance to churn out games at the pace RR&D have done over the past few years, and Grant possesses all three. Take a peak inside his talented process, and listen to his best tips for designers and game masters alike!
