Furies of Calderon: Part Three

Luke is concerned that he may be sharing too much, and Dan definitely shares too much (please skip to 6:00). Dan needs to get deeper into a comment from the subreddit. Luke and Dan have some suggestions for this empire, mostly fortifications based. Lastly, but most importantly, smash the patriarchy. First third of The Rage of Dragons by Evan Winter next week!

Special thanks to VOLO for the intro and outro music.

Furies of Calderon: Part Two

A double warmup for this episode, skip to 9:40 if you're only interested in Furies of Calderon. Dan updates his Tavi theory and brings us way out on a limb. Bernard is coming off way too good in this book so we've got to take him down a peg or two. And Dan has a great new opportunity that he wants to pitch to the Marat.

Furies of Calderon: Part One

Did anything exciting happen this week? Luke and Dan can't think of anything (4:50 to skip). Dan leads Luke immediately astray on the pronunciation of Amara's name but they are sticking with it. Are these Cursors extremely busy or extremely lazy? Dan wants to know why fantasy worlds are so in love with dictatorships and empires, while Luke is amazed by the ability to move a sword so fast that you lose track of the blade. Also it is time to reclaim the word slive because clearly people aren't using this word right.
