Episode 9 - Outlandia

Hosts: Jim, Jon & Kent

Guest: Chris
 

We build a galactic spiral arm in which magic and technology co-exist and humans and other strange species band together to defend against a threat that seeks dominion over all. WARNING: This setting combines Science Fiction and Fantasy. If that's not your cup of tea, you may want to skip this one to avoid having to crawl into a corner and rock yourself back and forth to comfort yourself against the sacrilege. In the mean time, we'll be having fun riding our magical space ships. ;)

Slight Delay

Hey, folks. Just wanted to let you know the next episode of Crucible of Realms is on its way. I got a bit behind in editing because I've had a lot going on, but with any luck it should be up and available within the next couple of days. So be sure to check back!
