Episode 305 – A Seriously Gruuling Show

Old vs New Gruul

It’s been a long time since the four of us actually recorded an episode, so we’ve got a lot of ground to cover on this one.  First off, we have to apologize for the sound quality of the last episode.  And we know we screwed up how Vorel of the Hull Clade works.  Our bad.  We’re allowed one major screw up every couple years, right?  Then Mike tells us about some drafting he’s been doing.  After that there’s a mess of news type stuff (the links are down there a little further of course).  Then we sorta screw around a bit, sharing some random non-Magic nonsense until the musical break.

After that, it’s time for the good stuff.  As if you didn’t know from the ridiculous title, this episode continues the Old vs. New: Ravnica Guilds with the Gruul Clans!  The discussions here were really good, and this might be our all-around closest Guild OVN yet.  Holy crap.

No really, this was a great one.  Hope you guys enjoy!

    I, for one, didn’t mind the sound quality of the last episode, and look forward to future bathroom-based recordings, such as:
    -Kjeldoran Outhouse
    -Minamo, School at Water Closet
    -“Throne” of Bone
    -Serum Powder Room
    -Privy, Spires of Odor
    -Profane Commode (omg, I just realized all the ones you could do with commode…)

    I think the obvious answer is we need to elect Borborygmos to congress, then we’d get two new laws right away, “crush them” and “we eat”.

    Wait a minute, is Borborygmos a republican?

      He seems to be a moderate. Republicans can get behind the “Crush them!” laws, but feel that the “We eat!” laws is too much like a hand out. Democrats are in favor of the “We eat!” law since it feeds the hungry, but feel the “Crush them!” law is too violent and expands the military too much.

    As the guy who got Vorel as a preview card:
    1. I had to read that card 10 times before I finally understood that it doubled the counters; and
    2. Plenty of people who looked at the card understood it to work just as you thought.
