This segment will air when episode 39 drops on Oct 16th.
When the elite fighter pilots of the Phantine XX arrive on the beleaguered world of Enothis, they know this is a desperate hour. The forces of Chaos are closing in and their final push could well wipe out all human life on the planet. Thousands of refugees flee the dark armies and the infamous Chaos fighter pilot Khrel Kas Obarkon is always hunting the skies for more prey…
And so it falls to the brave men and women of the Phantine fighter corps. Can they hold up the Chaos advance until reinforcements arrive? In the high-speed white-knuckle terror of aerial combat, can they defeat an enemy possessed by daemons?
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.
