Ubermensch Made Me Do It

Your weekly dose of Lore Boys are back, with a lore-light but content-heavy episode about the history of speedrunning! So plug in your headphones and fire up your TAS-bot, we’re diving deep into a sequence breaks and glitches and every sort of time save you can imagine. We’re here to tell you to summon the salt (Summoning Salt, specifically) necessary to make a speedrun happen.

Jamie fires up an ubermensch, Peter gives his any percent, and Ethan couldn’t make it to AGDQ this year. Plug in and make sure to bring your speedrun strats.

Superhuman Virtue, Discipline, and a Magic Rock

Lore Boys here with more of that good lore we can’t resist: it’s another Elder Scrolls episode and this one is as jam-packed with good stuff as the last two. We’re talking about the mysterious Dwemer: Nirn’s dwarves who are actually elves. These elves are deep — live in their parents basement and give you unsolicited advice about life deep.

We realize that James can’t tell two dwarves apart, twirling mustaches is a dead giveaway of a villain, and going to war is worth it if it’s to destroy a giant racist robot. James gets his chicken tendies, Ethan builds a boat, and Peter gets disappointed by Mass Effect 3 somehow. So climb aboard this metaphorical ship of state and get yourself some Elder Scrolls lore.

A Quantum History of Nirn

Lore Boys here with more Elder Scrolls Lore! Last time we talked about Elder Scrolls creation lore, so naturally this time we’re talking the creation of the Elder Scrolls lore! We cover everything you need to know about what the Elder Scrolls are and what the gosh-darn they do. Turns out there’s a lot of canon material in Elder Scrolls Online as well, and it fits in real nice to this episode.

So jack in those head phones and come find out: the similarities between the Elder Scrolls and Thomas Young’s Double-Slit Experiment, how Edison trained giant ancestor moths to sack Tesla’s workshop, where vampires come from, and how the dwarves could build a device so big it could read an Elder Scroll.

Post Apocalypse Done Trendy

Happy 4th of July! This episode we’re doing a deep dive into more pen & paper, but this time in relation to a video game we’re really excited about: Cyberpunk 2077. CD Projekt Red’s upcoming sci-fi dystopia world is built off the tabletop RPG of the ’80s that shares the same name, and it’s chocked full of all the awesome lore and history you would expect, and it also may sort of detail a horrible dystopian descent of the United States brought on by rampant corporatism and greed BUT NOT LIKE THAT COULD HAPPEN, RIGHT GUYS?

We’re talking robot armies owned by corporations, bio-engineered plagues unleashed by government agencies, and maybe a couple fallen nukes. Strap in and slick your hair back while we take you on a wild ride through the Danger Zone of Night City.
