Reviewing Savage Worlds products and whiskies
After the invasion of the earth and the terrible wars that followed, the planet has been rather changed – as has mankind, being nearly annihilated by the alien attackers. But the time of doom is over: Now it's time to reclaim the earth, rebuild society and explore strange phenomena the unfriendly visitors left us with. With a tasty Whisky in our glass, we'll take you on a tour.

In our recording, I mistakenly used the term "Handicaps" for Hindrances, which is what they're called in the German translation of SWADE. I mix those up all the time because it's English as well... Sorry for that!Vasant

Heroes of Terra
In the magical world of Terra, the ruthless dragon emperor has united the Kappa tribes and conquered the peaceful mandragora kingdom. Will you help the oppressed people against the occupying forces? Are you a wanderer, looking for the valuable storage blocks in old and new ruins? Are you actually considering siding with the emperor? Or do you just... want to go karting? We'll check out the setting by Blackwing Productions and also review a bourbon that was mysteriously suggested to us.

A posh private school, British banter and supernatural phenomena - are you in? Here comes our review of Bartington Halls: School for the Elite by Wild Eye Books! We might not be as rich as the pupils there, but at least we're old enough to buy whisky. So of course, we're also reviewing a Scotch with a similarly venerable history as that school.
