Aching God: Part Two

Get excited, we are talking about swords this episode. Do you agree with Dan and his perfectly reasonable stance about swords being tools with a somber purpose and thus not deserving of names, or are you a bigger sociopath than Auric? Yep, we're calling out Auric again. Also, Luke spots a shield sized problem with the party's battle tactics. Special thanks to VOLO for the intro/outro music.

Aching God: Part One

Dan gets this episode started by giving away a great fantasy plot idea for free, then we start discussing the first 13 chapters of Aching God by Mike Shel (5:30). Luke laments the lost look of the imposing desk and we both come down a little harshly on Auric.
