    Journey with us and hopefully even be inspired in your own life and faith as you see our team strive to overcome challenges.

    Special Note:  Players usually attempt to role-play how they believe their character would act in various situations.  We may not always agree with those responses or actions in real life.

    This adventure features laughter and fun banter between the players, however, it also depicts battles and overcoming some challenging situations.  So like the Lords of the Rings movies, we recommend this tale be enjoyed by teenagers and older.

    To bring our adventure to life we are using the "Adventures in Middle Earth" core books by Cubicle 7, which is based on the 5e ruleset from D&D.  Find out more about those resources here:

    3.21 Sequels: What Makes a Good Follow-Up Film? - ShatterCast, Season 3

    3.21 Sequels: What Makes a Good Follow-Up Film? - ShatterCast, Season 3

    Why are some Sequels well received?  Why are others almost universally hated?  What are some of our favorite Sequels?  And what are some movies we wished were never made? 

    Movie sequels can also serve as a great metaphor for the various stages of life we encounter. People often enjoy sequels that embody the positive elements of an original film but can also move the plot forward.  Likewise, how can we learn to appreciate the stage of life we are in while still learning from our past and having hope for the future? 

    All of this and more and our next exciting episode!

    [Topics: Hope, Learning from the Past, Looking forward to the Future, Trust; Scripture Verses - 1 Corinthians 13:11, Hebrews 12:2]

    3.20 Deliverance Kickstarter [Extended Interview] - ShatterCast, Season 3

    3.20 Deliverance Kickstarter [Extended Interview] - ShatterCast, Season 3

    Deliverance the Board Game is hitting Kickstarter on June 8! 

    We chatted again with the creator of the game, Andrew Lowen, for an in-depth interview. 

    We discuss the game of course, but also chat about why he decided to self-publish the game, the Kickstarter campaign itself, and advice he has for game designers and those who might plan to use Kickstarter in the future. 

    Finally, we chat about how his faith has influenced his decision-making along the way and what he believes God has taught him through this entire game creation process. 

    Special thanks to Andrew Lowen for the interview.  If you like what you see about Deliverance you can find more info at the links below (including our previous interview with Andrew).  Also, consider supporting the game through Kickstarter when it launches.  Thanks!

A Fun, Christ-Centered Round-Table Discussion About Pop Culture

Really enjoyable! ShatterCast covers a myriad of topics, and their discussions are not only educated but also well-balanced. You can tell these people are all good friends and their relationships help to keep one engaged. Eager to see where ShatterCast is headed, and you should, too!
