This month there’s the following:
Despite the name, Political Beats is basically a deep dive musical podcast where they pull in people from The Life to talk about important things, like relevant bands. Jeff’s a good dude and he’s been doing the podcast for forever; fans been nagging him to do something about getting it funded, and this is it. Check it out.
MY Patreon is, of course, here.
Maybe “Ghost State” is real. Maybe it’s not. Fun game: how can you prove it, either way?
PS: I love the legend of the Unhallowed Hand. Essentially, supposedly the Irish would baptize some babies everywhere except one hand, so that whatever you did with that hand wouldn’t ‘count’ when they tallied up your sins at the Pearly Gates. I’m not exactly sure what the Host would do with the hand, though. I guess cut it off and send it down to Hell, which gives me an idea for a story all on its own.
Although I reserve the right to swap out the RPG setting for something else next month. It’s a good idea, but it needs just a touch of something.
‘Reasonable Realignment of Resources’ illustrates the great question of draconic-human interactions in medieval societies: why does the king particularly care if the burden of having a local dragon is merely that she eats a cow every week or so? He has plenty of cows. Of course, if the dragon is a wild beast otherwise, it’s still a problem. But if she can demonstrate language and self-restraint, well… there are opportunities, there.
