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!
Nick, Darrell, and I sit down for some post-WTC discussion.
Congrats to all the members of all the Canadian teams for doing us proud, and for the Australians for being the first country to claim two WTC victories! Nicely done, folks.
Now with that spoiled, we can focus on how the various Factions and warcasters did. And we won’t agree about much, except that Cygnar is the worst Faction ever in all time forever.
Hey folks! This week’s podcast isn’t a little late because Marc forgot to upload it last night but because… uhhh… reasons?
We take a look at some of the lists we were running back in the misty origins of 3rd edition, comparing those lists to how we would play the same casters today. We also speak a little bit about theme lists, and Marc’s continued dislike of how they’re handled… but they are what they are, right?
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!
Also, a quick thank you Marc-Andre and Chandler for your feedback about last week’s episode. We’ll bring up the points you mentioned next week when we record again. But thanks guys, I’m really flattered you listen!
