Episode 599 – As Different As Night & Day

The dorks are back with another edition of There’s No Plane Like Home! Do you like happiness and sunshine and friendly creatures? Or do you prefer darkness, creepiness, and danger? Either way, do we have a place for you! Lorwyn is for the sunshine people, where the most dangerous thing to worry about is…well, racist elves running you through simply for being ugly. But other than that, there’s not much to worry about.

If horror and paranoia are more your style we’ve got Shadowmoor. Things wanting to kill or eat you are actually everywhere. In fact, one of the only safe parts of this world is…well, the friendly elves that are out to preserve beauty. Everything else either hates you, is terrified of you, wants to eat you, or is just mean and wants to kill you simply because you’re there.

Be sure to hang out for a sneak peek at what we’re doing for episode 600 and how YOU can help us out with it!

Episode 591 – The Three Tarkirs

The dorks are back with another edition of There’s No Plane Like Home! This time we’re taking a look at everyone’s favorite (?) time-travel affected plane, Tarkir. Tarkir is based on various real-world Asian countries, so the physical aspects of the plane don’t really change through the versions.

Of course, when you’re hopping through timelines, it’s not really the physical world you’re worried about. In the past you’re at war with the dragons and are in danger of getting eaten. In the Dragons timeline you’re subservient to your dragon overlords. And in the Khans timeline…well that’s actually not so bad. The one thing that is consistent throughout all timelines is that the Sultai… are just awful. The worst.

Episode 582 – Everything Changed When the Kami Nation Attacked

The dorks are back, now that Chewie is no longer a walking corpse! And what are we doing for our triumphant return? We’re doing another installment of There’s No Plane Like Home, where we take a look at one of the planes of Magic to determine if it would be a good place to live. We’ll take a look at the different locations of Kamigawa, the different groups and races that live in those locations, and of course the constant threat of getting murdered by random Kami.

But hey, there are Ninja! That means nowhere else is nearly as cool as Kamigawa, right?

Episode 546 – Tolkien, with More Clanking and Meowing

The dorks are back with another edition of There’s No Plane Like Home! We’re tackling (sort of) three planes this episode…and they’re all the same plane! We’re starting on Argentum, then moving on to Mirrodin, and ending on New Phyrexia! From quiet empty paradise to mostly good generic fantasy world (plus metal) to horrific war zone, we’re covering the entire history of the plane! Doesn’t that sound like fun? It’s actually not as bad as you might think! You know, until the Phyrexians show up and everything falls apart.
