Baneblade by Guy Haley, is our next novel for The Forbidden Lore segment. This novel is recently released and available now. So pick it up before the segment and be sure to read it before we go into an in depth, spoiler filled discussion!
We will then have Guy Haley join us for our discussion about the book, so he can provide us insights into the characters and the story. Carl met Guy while travelling in England, and we really think you are going to enjoy hearing from one of the newest Black Library authors.
This Forbidden Lore segment will air in episode in Episode 79, which is schedule for June 9th, 2013.
By the blessing of the Omnissiah was the Mars Triumphant born – from the forges of the Adeptus Mechanicus, the mighty Baneblade super-heavy battle tank comes to bring death and destruction to the foes of the Imperium. As part of the Paragonian 7th Company, Honoured Lieutenant Marken Cortein Lo Bannick commands the venerable war machine in a bitter war against the orks in the Kalidar system. As the campaign grinds on it begins to take its toll upon his crew, and old clan prejudices from the regiment’s home world arise once more. In a war which cannot be won by force of arms alone, such division may prove to be their undoing.
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.
