Show Notes – Ep 165 (For Every Rose, a Thorn)

This week, join Beard and Blue as they explore the information within the lore book, For Every Rose, a Thorn. Needless to say, there is a spoiler warning for this episode for any who have not collected this particular (and rather significant) addition to the story of Shin Malphur, Dredgen Yor, and the Shadows of Yor.


Summary of Episode

Perception is a powerful thing. If we are aware of it – it can create a flavorful interpretation of the world around us. If not, it can color our views to a point where we become dangerously unaware of the dangers around us. The story of Shin and his quest to defeat Dredgen Yor is such an example Many believe the narrative to be a tale of good vs evil. The strength of hope against the darkness of despair.

But what if it was more? What if our perception of this tale was only a single facet of the larger picture? 

“A person, any person, our lives and deeds live beyond us. Our moments making us whole. Our actions carving our being into the endless expanse of existence. Even after death, we were here. All we do can be forgotten, but it cannot be erased.”
