Incantations Episode 21 - Satyrine and Surreal TV

The great city of Satyrine has a lot for us to talk about. We're hopping back to the Indigo Sun to talk about what will likely be a major piece of the Invisible Sun setting. We also talk about television shows that can be drawn upon as inspiration for an Invisible Sun campaign.

Incantations Episode 20 - The Invisible Sun and Design Diary 6

You might think we're still on the Path of Suns, but the Invisible Sun is not actually part of it. We're still going to talk about Celare as part of the walk we're taking, but it's important to note it's not part of the Path. After that, we dig into Monte Cook's sixth design diary about secrets.
