Episode 29 - Apex Convergence

Hosts: Jim, Jon & Kent
Guest: Keith Baker

In February of 2014, we sat down and built a world with Keith Baker, the creater of Gloom and Eberron!

In this episode, we create a world where massive elemental beings fight for dominence while posing a constant threat to the human populace, who make use of special forms of magic to survive.

(NOTE: The original MP3 file had a bit of a hiccup late in the episode, but it's since been replaced and the new file should be available to grab now!) 

In this episode recorded in December 2013, we welcome podcaster and game designer Drew Meyer! Together, we hammer together a world permeated with dimensional waves that change the laws of reality. The ones living there have founded very different civilizations, each suited to their circumstances.

Episode 27 - Children of the Fury

Hosts: Jim, Jon & Kent
Guest: Dave Robison

Ever have one of those personal eras when your life turns upside down a few times and then a pandemic happens and then you look up and realize the audio edit you've been stressing over for the past decade doesn't have to be as perfect as your inner critic insists and it's okay if the final product runs over two hours after all? 

Sometimes it takes a very long time to get one's inner critic to back down.

But when it happens? It can be a thing of wonder.

At long last, here is the next episode of Crucible of Realms. In it, our guest Dave brings us a massive concept to play with - a world split into three parts, each experiencing a different environment and each with a different relationship with magic.
