Episode 86 - Lin Carter's "The Immortal of World's End" with special guest Kira Magrann
Appendix N Book Club
Kira Magrann joins us to discuss Lin Carter's "The Immortal of World's End", LARPing as an awkward teenager, goth teenage years, blending sci-fi and fantasy, tonal shifts, strange metaphors, the cognitive dissonance of glorifying violence after seeing war firsthand, evolving cultural norms, positive inclusions of beasts and animals, sexualizing all or none of the characters instead of just the female-presenting characters, random charts, Trancore as a music genre, and much more!
Something Is Wrong Here is a game built to evoke the unsettling experience of watching the works of David Lynch. Kira is here to discuss what building from the inspiration of a specific artist is like, how she mechanizes bleed, and her approach to structuring a one-night game.
Kira Magrann, TTRP and LARP designer, sits down to talk about queer communities, the overlap of queer and gaming communities, growing up, always learning, and never shutting our hearts and minds to new information, identities, and understanding.
Winter has come, and with it, frozen winds and endless snow drifts. For lesbisnakes--half snake, half lesbian--this is a time to retreat to the den, work on projects, and support each other, so all can emerge ready to chase their dreams in the spring.
