In this week's iteration: we talk about the influence of entertainment companies on politics, and also the game of politics. We compare politics to Call of Cthulhu, Pac-man, and Dwarf Fortress. Josh discovers the joy of forest fires in Minecraft. And recounts his day as an actor in a web short. Ryan plays more of the Secret World and Marvel's Avenger's Alliance. And for our main topic, Ryan delves into Ravenloft, discovering some untold stories of hags, and we ponder why these stories have been left untouched. We talk a bit about the concept of ugliness and beauty, in light of the archetypal hag.
