  • I had some computer problems over the week that did not result in an optimum or even sane recording environment for this game. I’m sorry to say 1.5 hours of audio got lost and my Macintosh is very, very sorry. I will post the 1 hour of recorded game that did survive along with a synopsis of the first part when the podcast drops. Thanks to Jamas, it looks like a back-up recording was done for this session!
  • Also, we had yet another new player join us this week: Say hello to Ben and his marvelous doctoring bag!
