Episode 581

This week's hosts: Shane & Savage. Special Show Friend: Conrad Kinch


This week the party gets out their grimoires and plays Vancian memory games. A system of magic first introduced in the Dying Earth novels, Vancian magic has shaped roleplaying magic systems since the first days of the hobby. Let's see if we can wrap our grey matter around the strain of capturing arcane energies in fragile meat cages!
