All aboard our new ship. She's called #DownWithKyle. No apologies to Kyles. We're real mad at him right now. This episode continues the squabbles of clan Vestrit/Haven, the introduction of *~Amber~* and some Paragon theories.

 Hope you like boat puns because we're starting Ship of Magic! We've already got our favorites (and our not so favorites) and we're ready to figure out how the boats work! What's a tangle? What, exactly, is a Rain Wild, and who are the Others? Wait... is it this guy?

Episode 15: Assassin’s Quest Chapters 26-30

December 6th, 2019

More assassinations are afoot and we get introduced to a bunch of new high fantasy magics in this section (is the Rooster Crown it's own thing yet?). Intrapersonal group dynamics are taking a hit as our characters continue to traverse the skill road and the conflict between Starling and the Fool concludes with Fitz confusing plumbing and love again. We also get more backstory from Starling that comes with a content warning but it's not all serious, we cover plenty of lighter topics including the origin of the hashtag #LetsGetWet

November 29th, 2019

One this episode we're walking the skill road and getting into all these relationship dynamics. We've got our eye on the characters we think will be making moves, throwing down knowledge and there might just be some prophecy involved.

Bundle up because Fitz has reached the Mountains in this section. It's cold. There's a river fight. There's a town-wide fire. Nighteyes is the absolute MVP in this section that has it all: Escape, rescues, betrayal, more rescues and The Fool is back. Unleash the Feels!

November 15th, 2019

*snip snip like a coney* the MVP of this episode is obviously Small Ferret but we also talk about the epic western qualities of this section while Fitz builds new relationships and drifting further from old ones. Also, the return of Nighteyes! What's not to love?
