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.
