Hello everyone!

Unfortunately, there’s no new episode today. Thryn is in the middle of submitting their PhD and then taking a well-earned break, so instead we’ll release the next part of Embrace either next week or the one after. Sorry if you were looking forward to finding out what’s happening with the Lodge and Ash and the horrible, possessed carousel. You’ll just have to wait a little bit longer.

In other exciting news, we’ve just released the new playkit for Ryne, the game we play in Tiding! This is the final major update before we hopefully Kickstart next year, so we wanted to tell you about it. We’ve spent a lot of time finessing and reworking its core systems so that it works for the kind of thoughtful fantasy we want to tell (and we hope other groups will want to tell too!). The playkit has four rolebooks (the Guide, Heart, Tethered and Weaver), two ways to play including a quickstart and a load of advice for the Fates to help you run the game. Please, check it out and let us know what you think.

You can get the playkit for free here.
