After Hours: Wilderlands Vacation Special – Part 1

The Wilderlands of High Fantasy is billed as the most detailed fantasy setting ever written. I own the boxed set, which contains 2 books (over 500 pages altogether) and 9 double-sided maps, depicting 18 regions. Each map has a hex grid and each hex is numbered. The books largely consists of descriptions of various hexes in each region.

Wouldn’t it be amazing to have a vacation in the Wilderlands? There’s so much here I couldn’t do it in one episode. This month, we will have THREE FULL episodes of After Hours to cover this boxed set. In part 1, Aaron, Jason, and Shaun describe potential vacations in chapter 11, 3, and 5 respectively.

Don’t Cross the Stream: Chronicles of the Ghostly Tribe

Chronicles of the Ghostly Tribe is a weird movie. It is ostensibly a Chinese summer blockbuster sci-fi action movie, but it’s more like 3 or 4 movies in one. There’s aliens, kaiju, the Chinese Red Army’s secret archeological unit, an Elvis impersonator who sings about Genghis Khan, dramatic shifts in tone, and undead werewolves (I think).

Bridget, Caleb, Fae, Thad, and I all watched the movie and analyzed it for the show. We also figure out how to turn this mess into a playable game. Up next is a playable mini-game by Bridget!
