Podcast Topic(s)

This discussion had its genesis back in October, in the #topic-suggestions channel on the Spam Spam Spam Humbug Discord server. We started down the rabbit hole of “what it?”-type scenarios with different events and figures from Ultima lore, and within the span of a few hours had expanded into competing headcanons and comparisons of how various games — such as Ultima Online and Ultima Forever — had addressed changes to the continuity of Ultima.

Inasmuch as we can say that there is any continuity in Ultima, since the canon of the series tended to be a very malleable thing from game to game; retcons and contradictions were common. We come up with a few interesting ideas about those as well; give it a listen!

In Other News

A friend of Withstand the Fury's donates to a charity called Worldbuilders every year. The campaign may have ended by now, in which case...well...apologies to all and sundry for the lateness of this and the vagaries of a publishing schedule. Worldbuilders is hosted by author Patrick Rothfuss, whom a number of you have no doubt heard of.

Be that as it may: the campaign had a set goal of $500,000, but as the end of it drew near, they extended the deadline of the fundraiser a bit in order to go from $500,000 to $715,000, to garner a top-up from a benefactor to $1 million.

If the campaign is still ongoing, please do consider supporting it; it seems like a quite worthwhile initiative.
