Ep 123 Summary

Episode 123 brings Blue, an extremely tardy Justin, Green, Beard, and returning special guest co-host PurpleChimera back together to discuss a rather hot topic at the moment – the “problem” of biased presentation of in-game story information. Namely – is it a problem? The group hashes it out among them (and yes, we’re back to the familiar group of Blue and Beard not really being on the same page), using figures such as the Speaker, Osiris, Toland, and even real life examples such as stereotypes in music, the historical research and experiences of Purple, and the dangers of angering abstract artists (GG, Justin).

Ep 122 Summary

Episode 122 brings Blue, Justin, Green, & Beard back together to dive into the lore that we have concerning the Exo race and their relationship with the concept of artificial intelligence. A big question that keeps getting brought up is: is the Exo ‘mind’ an artificial construct…or is it a natural intelligence which lives within an artificial shell? Is there a difference, at the end of the day? Why are Beard and Blue agreeing with each other so much?

Episode 98 Recap: New Monarchy

Not the past, not the future. The present is where we should turn our eyes.
The City is divided. We must unite beneath a single will.
Our choice is simple: find our strength, or face extinction.
What rules us, those of new monarchy, is our service to the greater welfare of the City.
So, Speak with the voice of the people, or be prepared to face them.
For A true leader speaks with the voice of the people.
They will know you fight not for yourself, but for the people’s will.
“There is strength in unity. And a King of many, will be the King of all.”
A finger can be broken. A fist cannot.

Episode 97 Recap: Striker

Some say that Strikers are purely an offensively minded guardian. This is not so. They throw their bodies at incoming fire so others won’t have to. It’s not a death wish….. Well for themselves at least. Once a Striker’s fist starts moving you can’t stop it, all you can do is make sure that you are somewhere else by the time it lands. Unlike their stormcaller and bladedancer compatriots the sustaining of the power is not the point. The point is the end, The lightning strike, the deadly burst of arc designed for maximum disruption and destruction. The point is this strikers make sure that they get the job done. It’s what they do. It’s as natural as breathing.
