The Forbidden Lore segment for Battle of The Fang, by Chris Wraight, will air with Episode 32 on July 10th! So plenty of time still to read it. I'll tell you right now though that this book is good.... REALLY good. I have decided not to sell my Space Wolves as a result of this book! It also has reinvigorated my excitement about my Thousand Sons!
What is "Forbidden Lore"? Read on:
Once per month we pick a "Black Library Book of The Month". We announce what book it is on one show and we will also then create a thread with a big SPOILER WARNING in the title in our "The Librarium" section of the boards so people can start to discuss thoughts and ideas there.
Two episodes later (so roughly one month later), pulling from the thread and our own personal reading experience, we will then have an extremely in-depth discussion about this book. This will cover spoilers about the story, which characters live, die, change, etc.
At the beginning of the episode we will announce that we are going to be discussing this book and all the spoilers for it.
We will place the segment at the END of the podcast, after the exit music, and present ANOTHER strong warning to really call attention to the fact that spoilers are coming. Then we will have a 20-30 min discussion about the book and what our thoughts were on it.
Keep in mind this isn't a REVIEW of the book - since everyone listening or caring enough to listen to that segment will have already read it. It's a discussion about what we all collectively read.
We really like the Black Library books and we think this will really bring home some of the "Feel like a part of our gaming group" approach we have taken.
