Bah, that's what you get for reading it before I've officially posted it!

Note that even our temporary hosting solution fell through, so we're on a temporary replacement for the temporary solution. Same for the RSS feed, which I'm working on now. 

 

The people responsible for sacking the people responsible have been sacked.

 

A moose once bit my sister.

 

(Known issues: Jon's mic sounds a little muffled, as he has a new one and it didn't handle our compression settings in post-production well. Will try and iron that out for next time)

Noooooohhzzzz. I can't listen at work like this.

In that "I love you guys so much, I'm wasting work hours listening", or "I love you guys so much, it's killing me to wait until I get home to listen" or "Nooo! They said a 3 letter word starting with "as", it's no longer safe for work" ?

Or is there something wrong with the cast or its distribution? (You can still download the cast direclty - I do not know if a podcatcher can download it from its current link (but I hope so!))

Relation-ship-ing => shipping!

In regards to comparing Lingering Venom to the Boneway:

 

There isn't a universally played plot that can, at any time, discard target location.

 

Also, condition hate is becoming more common, especially with Baratheon so prevalent in the meta.

I had to ROFL when Darknoj says 3 cost for a 2 STR Int & Pwr character is below curve and should be a tricon.  

The Red Viper is the only tricon with STR equal to cost unless you count playing Arya while Septa Mordane is on the board (and I don't think you should).  

FFG has almost universally given lower STR/Cost ratios to characters with INT icons while giving the best STR/Cost to Military monocons.  So this card is on par for STR/Cost and has a great ability.  It's a fantastic addition to the Martell toolbox.

Overall a really nice episode. Thanks for doing this and hope you have better luck with the tech next time.

Well, it does have the Ally trait, and you can get a 2STR bicon for 2, so paying 3 for the body is definitely below curve. 3 for a tricon, though... well, that'd be above :P.

I guess it depends on how you define the "curve."  So far, of the 55 cards released or spoiled with Int and Power icons, I counted only 11 having STR equal to or greater than their cost.  That's just 20% above the curve in my mind, although the Catlyns and Margerys and Doreahs of the game do see heavy play.  ;)

What is the exact wording on Lingering Venom?

Terminal.
Reaction: After you lose a challenge, place
a venom token on Lingering Venom. Then,
if attached character’s STR is equal to or
lower than the number of venom tokens
on Lingering Venom, kill it.

Thank you dear sir!

Image spoilers can be found on our facebook page. I'll try to get them up somewhere else too, so I can link to them directly here - but that won't be for another few hours.

I don't understand how you can print a negative attachment in the Night's Watch box and not make it a weapon?

The character is more interesting to me - I like that it lets you return your own characters to hand as well, which could prove useful as a dodge pre Valar or a repeat of a different enters play effect such as Arys. Martell are getting very crowded at that price slot though (although you may think of these as an event rather than a character when deckbuilding).
