… well, not really of kings. Just sounded very Lewis Carroll in my head.
Anyway! This post is going up a teensy bit late because SOMEBODY (Marc) forgot to do it in advance. I never claimed to be a smart man, so here we are. This episode gets Darrell, Nick, and I back to discuss the new Retribution Battle Engine (forever known as the Dawnmower), a purchase timeline for Marc to get his Crucible Guard, and many, many other things scattered in there.
All joking aside, Nick apparently has lost the Internet (and all will to live) until Tuesday, so we couldn’t record anything this week. We’ll have plenty of stuff to discuss next week, I suspect, and I’d like to take a moment to thank all the brave Skorne players who are muscling through their CID, trying to balance their Faction. Carry on, my wayward soulstones!
Marc would also like to let everyone know that he wrote over ten thousand words in the last three days on his fourth novel. Progress! It’s still 30k from being finished, but that’s okay!
To everyone else on Earth… happy Monday, I guess? Unless you’re not reading this or listening to this on a Monday, in which case… yeah, moving on.
The Retribution CID released, and we sit down and talk about it! Takes us a bit longer than usual, but it is interesting stuff, give it a listen while eating turkey… or whatever you’re eating, I suppose!
Also, a heads up: Marc is away in a cottage in the middle of nowhere for the next week or so to try and get all his writing done for the year (November and December are extremely, extremely busy months), so can’t say for sure there will be a podcast next week, but we will try!
Just a quick note that we won’t be recording or putting out a podcast this week due to Nick spending all weekend watching the WTC and Marc spending that time working.
Yay work. It’s… something.
Anyway! We’ll be back this week with new shinies! Sorry for the delay, hope everyone enjoyed the WTC, and obviously a huge congratulations to Australia for winning! Way to go, guys!
(We’re also extremely proud of all the Canadian teams, obviously!)
We have a weird one for you this week, folks. Prompted by a question by the incomparable Jason Lucas (hi Jason! I still have your sweater!), Nick, Darrell, and I discuss the issue of race(s) in the Iron Kingdoms, as well as briefly touching on the issue of LGBTQ+ in WarMachine.
Before that we talk GenCon, new releases, tournaments… lots of WarMachine this week, as well as some interesting talking points.
As always, we’re happy to hear from any of our listeners through e-mail, Twitter, or Facebook, and we don’t claim to be experts on these issues, but hey, it was a slow week for playing games!
Hey folks! Nick was off traveling this week, and Marc was… lazy, really.
But! Exciting stuff is coming. We’re getting together on Wednesday to discuss a few upcoming episodes, plot out some options, do all the boring stuff that lets us be consistent and amazing the rest of the time.
So! Sorry about the delay, but hey, if any of you lovely people have suggestions for a 200th episode… why not leave ’em in the comments? Can’t promise we’ll DO ’em, but we’ll at least read ’em!
And as an aside: Marc is currently buying all of the Crucible Guard. ALL OF IT. I’m thinking Orange as a colour scheme… we’ll see, we’ll see…
