We’ve decided that a fun way to carve some enjoyment out of this uncooperative year is to do a general spooky topics roundup and so we’ve got another one for you this week.
We start off with some exciting news: Jenny has done a fashion walk and Peter is on the general design team for En Publishing’s Level Up project. We start off with our impressions of the idea of WotC’s new D&D-themed Magic: the Gathering set (coming early next year) and then get into our individual news. We also basically decide on the mics to do a “spoopy fall,” so look forward to more monster and horror themed episodes in the near-term.
From there we read our rather minimal scripture (werewolves are not at ALL Biblical) and then launch into our topic. Werewolves may not have any scriptural basis, but boy howdy is there a boatload of mythology, folklore, and popular fiction about them. This one ran almost as long as our alignment wrap-up and probably could have gone longer.
Scripture: Genesis 49:27, John 10:11-16
Supplemental media: While it wasn’t mentioned in the episode, if you’re looking for a good piece of werewolf media both Jenny and Peter can vouch for, take a look at Sang-Froid: Tales of Werewolves. It’s currently free(!) on Steam, but wasn’t always, and was worth paying for back when it was for sale for actual money. The game hits a lot of the same themes we talk about in this episode.
