We've been taking some time recently to revisit old topics deserving of an update. One of those is surprisingly recent: Exploration. We've only had this mechanic since Prophecy of Kings was released, but we've learned a lot since we first introduced it, and it's about time we cleaned up our thoughts a bit. So, here we'll read the exploration cards for every deck, including Frontier and Relic, and analyze what a player is meant to do with all of that.

We're big time important kids and our opinions matter. That's why we were sent a copy of Twilight Inscription to give our unbiased, unfiltered, uncompromised, objective review. You came here for hard hitting journalism and boy howdy I tell ya that's what we're here to deliver. Game Journalism matters A LOT, and we take our roles very seriously.

We're making our way back through all of the factions, starting with those that got recent updates in Codex 3. Xxcha only received a new hero, but it seems that simple change was enough to make us reconsider everything about this faction. It's now an economic powerhouse if you play it right and it's time to explore how to do that and what it means for the faction!

It's been so long since we've tuned into Root, and there's been a new expansion out for a while now! This isn't a strategy guide, but we do intend to do some down the road. Instead, this is an overview of all of the things that came with the Marauder Expansion, as well as what Root even looks like these days. There's more than just these big box expansions and it can all be a bit hard to follow, so consider this your guide to Root in 2022!

August's Galactic Council Episode is the season wrap on GC episodes that fit this kind of vibe. For a while now we've been doing GC episodes off the cuff, and for the next batch we want to put in a bit more time on each episode. But for this "Improv Finale," we've saved the best for last. It's time for the Definitive Hero Tier List.

I know you just loaded up this episode and saw that timecode. That ain't no joke. This episode is nearly 3 hours and 35 minutes long and it's because we have to talk about every single Action Card in the game. Yes, we HAVE to. Never forget that this is our job and we will treat it as such. Prophecy of Kings and Codex 1 both introduced a lot of new cards that we have not talked about in depth so prepare your mind and body. It is time.

We ran around GenCon for three days and talked to some amazing folks!

0:00 - First up, James Kniffen, the designer of the new TI Roll and Write Twilight Inscription. We discuss his background with FFG and what inspired this crazy genre shift for our beloved franchise

13:13 - Then, Sam Gregor-Stewart whose team at Edge have been trying to release the hotly anticipated Twilight Imperium sourcebook for the Genesys RPG, Embers of the Imperium. We're digging deep into what to expect with some of the upcoming lore, and where the inspirations for this book came from.

We were finally able to return to GenCon for the first time since 2019, and this time we got to hold a a real live show at the local Helium Comedy Club. Our other podcast, Old Gamer's Almanac, opened for us because they are incredibly kind and to be honest they went kind of long. But once they were done, we had some time to also do some live SCPT shenanigans. Listen, this isn't your normal episode, but it is an extra fun one, so please enjoy.
