Our next Forbidden Lore segment in which we cover the new Space Marines Battle Book Legion of The Damned by Rob Sanders! We really loved Robs last outing into the 40k Universe (Atlas Infernal) and we are pretty certain we are going to like this one as well. Not only that - but we are going to have a discussion with Rob Sanders himself about this book during the Forbidden Lore segment. So this promises to be a truly great one.
Grab a copy (If you haven't already!) and read along with us this month!
Following the trajectory of a blood-red comet, the berserk World Eaters blaze a path of destruction across the galaxy in its wake. The small cemetery world of Certus Minor appeals to the Space Marines of the Excoriators Chapter for protection, but the force dispatched to deal with this grim threat is far too small and their losses against the renegades are high. Just as all seems lost, salvation is borne out of legend itself as sinister spectral warriors descend upon this planet of the dead, and the enemies of the Imperium come face to face with those who have already travelled beyond the realm of the living...
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.
