In this potentially final episode of the podcast, Val (@SylvanFlux) and Sam (@SamuelHowitt) discuss the first segment of Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, covering the prologue and the Velen part of Act 1.

This episode has a CONTENT WARNING for mentions of violence, suicide, homophobia, sexual assault, the brutalization of women, miscarriage, and abortion.

"I can do you tragedy and women without queerness, and I can do you tragedy and queerness without women, and I can do you all three concurrent or consecutive, but I can't do you queerness and women without tragedy. Tragedy is compulsory - they're all tragedy, you see." - A hypothetical writer at CD Projekt Red

Music used, in order:
Alexander James Adams - Wild Hunt
Yoshino Yuuji - Wakaki Nendaiki Sakka

This is a pretty straightforward episode of rpg criticism, where we discuss Ara Fell by Stegosoft Games. Ultimately the game is pretty typical, even shallow at times. It has a lot of heart and stands out among its contemporaries, but what's that good for? 

It's also the start of a new year for this podcast, which is exciting. Expect a new level of dedication, probably! Game on!

Next game is Shadows Over Imdahl https://rpgmaker.net/games/5991/

Music used, from Ara Fell
Louise Heaney - Inyuna's Tower
Louise Heany - Ghost of the Forest
