Episode 215 Let’s build an aquatic race

What! That is underwater!

Today's Topic Let’s make an aquatic fantasy race

Michael and I often have many great ideas on shows.  We talk about having the episode and then we forget.  Thanks to Amanda for reminding us that we need to create an aquatic race. Listen to this episode if you need direction or want to listen to our newest race.

So, feeling challenged to come up with something interesting we did some extensive research and had a blast creating an open ocean race.  To be honest, I would never have this race at the center of a story or game. However, a race like this could really add some great finishing detail to a  world.
