Episode 137:Melthos? I hardly know those!

Hello, Podwalkers, and welcome back to another episode of the Goblin Lore Podcast! Taya is back with us!!! In case you missed she visited the cast way back in Episode 115. Hobbes and Alex previously took on Psychographics/Aesthetics when it comes to Magic Players and that episode introduced the concept of the hybrid Melvin/Vorthos player... the Melthos . Today we dive deeper into what this could mean with examples that we feel both hit and miss this aesthetic. Today's episode mentions a lot of works previously done especially by Mark Rosewater so we are including links to these .

Again we would like to state that Black Lives Matter (with a link to where you can offer support both monetary and not).

 

We also are proud to have partnered with Grinding Coffee Co a black, LGBT+ affiliated and owned, coffee business that is aimed at providing coffee to gamers. You can read more about their mission here. You can use our partner code for discounted coffee!

As promised, we plan to keep these Mental Health Links available moving forward too. For general Mental Health the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) has great resources for people struggling with mental health concerns as well as their families. We also want to draw attention to this article on stigma from NAMI's site.

If you’re thinking about suicide or just need someone to talk to right now, you can get support from any of the resources below.
