After being unable to record last week because Skype hates us, we’re back! Skype still hates us, but we outsmarted its hate. If this episode sounds funny, it’s because Chewie recorded it using his game capture software instead of something that hooks into Skype directly.
We begin this episode with a guest! Joe Hout, a local player and first-time game designer, is an awesome guy. And he’s doing a Kickstarter for his first game, Dragon Draft! We go into lots of details about the game on the episode. For all the information you could want, check out the links below. I really hope some of you guys help Joe out on his Kickstarter, it’s SOOO close and ends VERY soon!
Then, because of all our technical difficulties, we couldn’t really do what we wanted to do this week. So instead we’re taking a look at From the Vault: Lore. We’re gonna go through all the cards in it and talk about how they fit into their various stories, our experiences with them, and whether or not there could be some better choices to represent the story. It was a good discussion that was a lot of fun, so let us know what you guys think of FTV: Lore!
On this episode we’re spending the entire time discussing the big Emrakul reveal for Eldritch Moon. We go into detail about our reactions so everyone understands exactly what we’re disappointed about and why. We really like the three cards they revealed though! We touched on a few other things, and you can find links to those things below!
Seriously, I’m sure the set’s gonna be as good as usual, possibly better. It’s purely a story thing. There’s nothing that can be done about it now, but we wanted to voice our concerns.
And don’t worry, we’ll have more RPG episodes coming soon.
We weren’t terribly excited about Battle for Zendikar. We were SUPER excited about Shadows Over Innistrad. What’s the difference between these two sets? We’re diving into the differences between both cases of nostalgia to figure out what’s going on here. And since Brian’s not here, we spend a lot of time rambling and tangenting in his honor. And because that’s sort of what we do.
Be sure to stick around until the very end for a super awesome amazing announcement! And be sure to come back here on May 25th!

Last week’s episode about The Aveng….I mean the Gatewatch was so much fun that we decided to do it again! We’re covering another handful of planeswalker Oaths this week, so be sure to let us know what you think! We’ll knock out the rest of them very soon, so if we missed one you like don’t worry!
We all know & love the Avengers of the Planeswalkers, the Gatewatch, right? What if they were to add to their numbers? Sure four planeswalkers are a force to be reckoned with, but what if they needed even more power? Well of course anyone that becomes a member must take an Oath, and that’s what we’re really interested in! We’ve come up with some Oaths for other planeswalkers that might join the Gatewatch, both the card text and the flavorful oath itself. We couldn’t get to them all in one episode, so expect another one soon!
