The One Who Was Made of Bats

Lore Boys are back with more tasty lore. In case you missed it, our previous Titanfall episode covers a bit of the backstory to Kuben Blisk’s Apex Games, and why all these quirky characters find themselves at the end of the known universe with nothing but and endless rain of firepower and a thirst for the blood of other athletes… a lot like Sochi, I’d imagine. But today’s episode is all about the personalities themselves. How Michael Phelps is Pathfinder, Nancy Kerrigan is Pathfinder, how Mikaela Pauline Shiffrin is, well… Pathfinder.

As we venture to the Frontier to take in some classic sport, James squatters up his speech, Peter parties with some Rats, Wrait gets arerested for shoplifting, and Lifeline finally changes her gloves. Grab yourself a gun and butter up some bats, it’s Apex Legends character lore!

As always, we super appreciate you listening, and hope that if you enjoy the show you’ll tell your friends and leave us a review on iTunes and the rest our social media (FacebookTwitter, and Instagram.) We wanna hear from you guys, so shoot us an email at loreboyspodcast@gmail.com or squat on the land until we eventually find your plot and decide to set up some interstellar battle royale there.

Outsourcing to the Elves

Boy the Lord of the Rings sure does have a lot of lore. Sauron sure did like to get up to a lot of stuff, like making 19 whole other rings just like the one they made three movies about. We talk about their maker, Celebrimbor, and his work in Sauron’s sweatshops producing cheaply made phones. At least he managed to get his friends some phones before Sauron data-capped them.

This episode Ethan kisses some Orcs, James learns to become a very average wizard, and Peter holds his staff a little too tight.

North Kree-ans and South Kree-ans

After our brief hiatus the Lore Boys are back, and we arbitrarily have decided to call this our season 3 premiere! Truth be told, none of us knows why some seasons end and new ones start, so we’re going with our gut. We’re talking about Marvel comics’ Avengers on this episode, but we made sure to keep it completely spoiler free for Endgame content, so all you frosty nerds out there don’t need to worry ❤

Ethan tries to give some background on the Marvel universe, how it works, and some of the other, notable dimensions in the multiverse, and then we evolve into speculation about where the Marvel Collective Universe might go in what Disney is calling Phase 4. Whether it be sexy blue aliens vs. sexy green aliens in the Kree-Skrull War, just sexy green aliens posing as sexy Avengers in Secret War, an invasion of Duckworldians, or something different altogether, we try and touch on a couple possibilities as we bumble our way through another episode.

The Reapers Did a Billion Legos

Hello and welcome back to The Lore Boys. This week was a quiet one so Pete decided to take us back a billion years and relax on some forgotten beaches with the oldest (according to them) race in the Milky Way.

We’re covering Mass Effect’s Leviathans, who out of hubris or stupidity created the main antagonist of the galaxy for the next billion years.
We learn that no matter how smart you are, your AI will always go Terminator. Jamie learns about Lego and measuring whiskey, Pete saves you from a dangerous drinking game and Ethan joins the frat house from the Hebrew Bible.
Just your average week of Lore Boys.

Notorious B.U.G

Lore Boys are back, this time with some more Hollow Knight story. We’re talking Quirrel, Hornet, Cloth, Zote, the girl with the orange fog, the Pale King, the Dreamers, the Mantis Lords, and pretty much all the characters with the coolest names. We talk about the Dream, what is Soul, or Void, or The Infection — sometimes called the plague.
Who was the Pale King? What are Wyrms in Hollow Knight? Did the Pale King make sweet love to a Spider and get his head chewed off for it? You gotta listen to the episode to learn what happened behind the scenes in Hollow Knight. We had a lot of fun making this one — Hollow Knight lore is so rich and fulfilling, and we hope you’ll like it to.

The Power of the Bee Beard

Buzz buzz Lore Folk as they say in the Hollow Nest, this week is Hollow Knight! Well as per usual the events leading up to Hollow Knight.

Jamie is back from IEM and Ethan is slaving away in the University Mines where they give group projects to people who are almost 30!
This week Jamie explains to Peter why he’s missing out on adorable bugs that are actually vessels of negative energy that siphon the souls directly out of the living! We learn about a King who hates the sun, but loves experimenting on the living, why a beard of bees is the ultimate power up and why Peter just can’t seem to git gud and finish this gosh darned game.
This episode is all about bugs, and not the kind that make you beg for a refund, start petitions or mod the game yourself.

Our God Has Legs

Lore Boys are back, and Ethan’s hosting, which means we’re talking about Dungeons and Dragons, of course! This episode has all the juicy D&D items you care about: beholders, dancing swords, the Harpers, wizards, Manshoon, necromancy, betrayal, and more. We’re talking the lore of Manshoon, one of D&D’s earliest recurring characters, and his exploits leading up to the Manshoon Wars.
Jamie’s away in Katowice for IEM this week, but Ethan and Peter hold down the fort with the quality lore and goofs we’ve come to expect from ourselves. Ethan explores an ancient barrow looking for an adjective, and Peter blows his hand off while trying to run for city council.
