Our Iron Lanterns are hung from the shop door - we're open for business with another episode; this time illuminating the hidden lore of the Pardoners Guild in Wraith: the Oblivion. At first we tackle the seeming setting inconsistency of Guild legality and legitimacy in post-Breaking Stygian society, and offer advice for players and Storytellers who grapple with this part of the lore.
Rose and BK poke their lanterns into every corner of the book, discussing the cult-like nature of the Guild, the role of quasi-religious foundations implied by the Guild, and how to use the many plot hooks presented in these pages. BK may also become a little too attached to the Angst Battery - one of the Pardoners' greatest secrets.
Stay tuned for our next episode, take some time to leave a review, and drop by our Storyteller's Vault products to support the show. Using the affiliate links for books mentioned during this episode also helps out the podcast, namely:
