Fourth World awesomeness.
There isn't a lot of media that covers Earthdawn out there. Glad for this one. This Shadowrun GM enjoys listening about Earthdawn material, specially when it might inspire me to bring a few things forward from the 4th world into the 6th. Keep up the good work!
blast from the past
I listen to the first 2 episodes and this took me back to a time of long ago. I remember the days of figuring out step numbers, and exploring the glory past of the shadowrun world.
Earthdawn has gone through a lot of homes. I always felt it was underrated, and frankly a bit of heartbreaker. So it was wonderful to hear both of your passions for the game. Hope they aren't mad passions :)
subscribed and eagerly to hear more.
