Most RPG scenarios assume that it’s up to the player characters to conclusively defeat the bad guys at the end. In the Gaming Hut we ask when it’s okay to leave the mop up to outside forces.

In the History Hut Patreon backer Jake asks us to unveil the mysteries of the Cagots.

Ask Ken and Robin fields a Q from backer Jacques de Villiers on gaming Twin Peaks and the related works of David Lynch.

Finally we enter the Eliptony Hut, carefully checking our calendars, to satisfy backer Alexandria Permann’s curiosity regarding the Phantom Time Hypothesis.

    Not sure what’s messed up here, but the podcast dosen’t apart to be avaliable despite the shiw notes being up.

    Not that Illig’s theory desperately needed more debunking, but there recently has even been a proof to the contrary by astronomers: Since they can date back solar eclipses in any given year and point of observation, reports of such eclipses during the supposedly made-up years (and before) can generally be verified, meaning that history could not have just skipped a few centuries.
