Episode #213 — Justice Comics Vol. 2, Issue #5
A spooky tale?! From the Sentinels Universe?! NOT IN NOVEMBER?! Huge if true.

Episode #212 - Writers' Room: America's Newest Legacy #521
Time for a trio team-up!
Run Time: 1:23:28
This one was a tough story to make work! We go down a lot of false trails before fighting out how we want to make this happen. They can't all be easy! We hope you enjoy this peek behind the curtain, seeing what's it's like when we're struggling. All part of the process!
Get your Absolute Zero and Muerto questions in now! We're recording on Wednesday this week (tomorrow!) instead of Friday, and recording TUESDAY of next week! That's right! The live show next week is being recorded only a couple hours after next week's episode goes live! Join us!
Episode #211: Mechanics of Definitive Edition
Let's get mechanical!
Run Time: 1:05:05
We start in the semantic weeds, right off the bat! And that's what you've got to look forward to for this episode!
OK, OK, though the first few letters are pretty mechanically in-depth, we DO get into the more "Hows" and "Whys" of how the mechanics and the thematics match up. It's not all just "how do these cards interact" questions!
Join us next week when we kick off the rest of this joyous Adam's birth month with a Team-Up episode with Episode #212: a Writers' Room episode about Young Legacy, Unity, and The Harpy!
Episode #210 - Writers' Room: Neighborhood Watch #5
A new story! A new team of heroes face some new villains!
Run Time: 1:49:52
We start in rare, ridiculous form. And then it gets even more ridiculous. But then! Finally! We start telling stories! And we tell several, to make up for all the ridiculousness.
A lot of the content in today's episode references the newest Sentinel Comics RPG book: The Guise Book! You can get the physical book from our webstore or from your friendly local gaming store, or get just the PDF from DriveThruRPG!
Thanks for listening, everyone! Join us next week for a discussion on the game mechanics of Definitive Edition! Get your questions in now!

Must-listen for Sentinels fans, and great for creatives!
(Updated from original review in Feb 2017.) For those of us who enjoy the characters and lore of Sentinels of the Multiverse, Sentinel Tactics, Sentinel Comics RPG, and other games from Greater Than Games, this podcast with the creators is amazing! In addition to all the backstory and reveals it provides, Christopher and Adam are (as always) fun and entertaining to listen to. Their love of the Multiverse they have created is apparent in the energy and attention they provide, here, and make this a wonderful experience! For many of the fans, having the ability to directly ask questions is the best part, as all the theories and conjecture from years of online discussions are being addressed! In addition, it's an impressive experience to hear two creators bouncing off of each other, how they work, and how those results come to fruition, making it a potential learning experience for other creatives, be it in game design, fiction writing, art, etc. As the story has been told, the podcast has transitioned beautifully through various states, maintaining its wonderful story telling while continuing to entertain throughout -- and allowing its listeners to be involved more and more as time goes on.
I started collecting Sentinels of the Multiverse items in early 2018, and this podcast has more than doubled my appreciation for the characters and stories in the game. Whenever I start listening to an episode that I think is about a boring hero or villain, I come away thinking how awesome their story is. Christopher and Adam, you guys are super cool, and it’s been awesome joining you on this journey to the multiverse and beyond.
A great podcast
I’ve been playing Sentinlas pf the multiverse since the first Kickstarter and love the game. But this podcast adds so much depth to the game. It’s also great story telling. I highly recommend it for fans of the game and fans of good story telling.
