Episode 258: Mom! He’s in Cisalpine Gaul!

September 8th, 2017 | Robin

 

A couple of episodes ago we put a pin in the idea of Magic Blackwater and now in the Gaming Hut we unpin it for further consideration.

In yet more business arising from the previous minutes, the Mythology Hut looks at the kinship between the vampire and the serial killer.

Then Ken and/or Robin Talk to Someone Else, specifcally Stacy Dellorfano of Contessa fame.

Then it’s off to the whirring proximity of Ken’s Time Machine to see what it did and didn’t have to do with the Roman Emperor Caracalla’s murder of his brother Geta. Question courtesy of Patreon backer Ash Jackson Is the Scrollbard.

Get outside your own perspective and inside the Gaming Hut as Ken and Robin envision a gun that triggers out of body experiences.

With espionage everywhere in the news, it’s time for that Tradecraft Hut primer on contemporary Russian intelligence.
