Welcome to a new podcast series wherein we play the RPG Shadow of the Demon Lord. Join our heroes Pax Mundi, Model R41 Explorer S/N C6G359, and Wuzya as they hunt down some missing persons and maybe even survive along the way!
Kings Richard and Phillip lead an all-star cast in the final installment of the Crusades trilogy. The East brings in a new villain, worthy of our Christian heroes, in the form of the dread general Saladin. Who will win in this clash of Titans? Spoiler: everyone loses.
What’s this, things happen? Why yes, thanks to the newly discovered ability to “skip the boring parts,” we finally arrive at a moment of great importance: the sack of Rome by the Gauls, an event that would leave such a scar on the Roman psyche that Julius Caesar would use it as justification to conquer the region three hundred and fifty years later.
The period that will never end continues. Only 200 more years before we get to actual history. Meanwhile, here are military tribunes, replacements for consuls that definitely were real and certainly weren’t Livy making things up.
And now we cover a decade’s worth of Livy probably making a lot of stuff up. We first run into agrarian laws, the bogeymen of Roman politics that became major points of contention during the late republic. And we fight wars, a lot of wars, against pretty much the same three people.
