Masters of the Forge - Episode 043 - The Tau Empire

Fire warriors

This episode gives a quick primer on the Tau and brainstorms some narrative lists for playing them on the tabletop. We also have a segment in which we interview the hosts of Life After the Cover Save. Warning: that segment may be inappropriate for some listeners. Stay tuned next week when we continue our Tau coverage when we go over the Damocles Kauyon supplement.

Masters of the Forge - Episode 042 - Don't Panic on Emperor's Day

In this episode (which has all the answers) we have a little fun making up some background for Emperor's day and provide some holiday-themed missions you can use for a nerdy gathering this season.  We also discuss alternative models for your narrative Astra Militarum armies and have another installment in the Raid on Pakeshi IV. So, grab your towel, finish your pan-galactic gargle blaster, and have a listen!

Masters of the Forge - Episode 041 - The Salamanders

The XVIII Legion boasts an almost suicidal bravery in the field of battle. These astartes hold their responsibility to defend humanity in the highest regard. For the Salamanders, the ends do not justify the means; they have their limits on what they will do to achieve victory. However, do not underestimate them in combat, because once committed, the cleansing flames of righteousness will claim their foes with merciless purgation.

Masters of the Forge - Episode 040 - Dark Mechanicus

We conclude our 3-episode coverage of the Mechanicus with a discussion covering the Dark Mechanicus. This is a much shorter discussion than our last 4-hour monstrosity, but includes a simple, but we think fun, Dark Mechanicus supplement. Please play with it and provide as much feedback as you can. Enjoy the outro... you get a glimpse into the minds of men completely drained by sleep deprivation and mental over-working.

Masters of the Forge - Episode 038 - Adeptus Mechanicus Part 1

The Adeptus Mechanicus is a huge topic and even discussing them over three episodes won't do more than scratch the surface. However, we've received multiple requests for this topic and it warrants coverage. In this first installment, we cover the Mechanicus in general and in brief. After that, we discuss the novel, Adeptus Mechanicus: Skitarius by Rob Sanders.

Masters of the Forge - Episode 037 -  Joining the Greater Good

What would you say to a powerful alien race who promised you health, safety, and stability under their benevolent rule? What would you say to an alien race who, surprisingly, doesn't open negotiations with exterminating a few key cities on your world, although they have every opportunity to do so? It's hard not to listen to them in a savage Galaxy full of terrors. This fortnight we discuss the species who have accepted the Greater Good to some degree.

Masters of the Forge - Episode 036 - Death Worlds

We hear about Death Worlds throughout the lore of 40k. We know that they're dangerous places, but a Deathworld goes beyond simple danger. To live in such a place is to constantly face death, sometimes quite literally in the face. In some cases, these worlds have non-circumstantial similarities. Others are strange and defy the imagination.
