  1. Yay! A new episode! 🙂

    Years ago, I did a (pretty lousy) sketch of a priest of Mordiggian. I love both the cult and the story. The cultists of a Charnel God would work great in a D&D game, both as opponents or as some kind of a weird NPC allies to heroes.

    Yep, one of CAS’ best, lovin it!

  3. Jason Thompson says:

    You rule! I love that Mordiggian is some kind of giant blob/worm AND there’s also ghouls. Smith is always good at throwing in extra monsters without regard for the budget of subsequent movie adaptations.

    Also, “The Dark Eidolon” is great!!!

    Look you pieces of shit, start churing out more content or I pull out the whip! No but seriously, where are the new episodes! I’ve probably listened to all of your shows 4 times in my life and ill probably do it again. You motherfuckers owe all of your listeners to get this shit out and by that what i mean is that you guys are fucking awesome and you shouldn’t end the podcast with Zothique. Or rather Id like to see you guys do othet podcasts, collectively or individually. There’s all sorts of content you guys could produce, weird fiction or not. You can’t stop being entertainers! Not aloud!

    My fault… I donated $8 back in July and since then they haven’t made any new podcasts. I assume they took the money to Vegas, went infinite, and are still stuck at the slot machines

    Sorry all.
