In lieu of a real episode (there is one coming don't worry!) we decided to just hit the random page button on the Lexicanum website. Something we all used to do was stay awake into the wee hours of the night constantly hitting random, and then following the links down the rabbit trails. It's always fun to wonder how you got from Solomon Zane to the Aconite Frigate, but that's what madness does to you!  Joining us on this episode for the last time is Chris.

The Dark City. A metropolis that exists everywhere, and nowhere. Danger lurks around every corner, your life threatened every second. While Commorragh might be synonymous with Kabals and Dark Eldar, there exist any number of creatures in the City. Outcasts, rebels, transients, xenos, synthetic creations... all have their own place. Commorragh may be the haven you were searching for... though most likely it is your doom. In this episode we share some of the other groups that reside within the...

Born into service, if you can call it that, they are tenacious, reckless, and dangerous.

This episode is all about the Death Korps of Krieg! The regiment is absolutely...

What should have been a triumphant reclamation of Tau worlds in the wake of the Damocles Crusade became a mark of shame for the Tau Empire. One Tau's struggle to protect his people from the terrors of space turned into a rebellion against his masters. In this episode, we talk about the trials and tribulations that O'Shovah went through, and how the Expedition evolved from a crusade of righteousness to a force which would crack their very belief in the Tau ideology. Joining us for the first...
