FTN Episode 459 – Grand Narrative Lead Up AND Wrap Up – Was it Awesome?

FTN small square

Very sorry for the double episode in one download.  I hope it doesn’t mess up your data plan.  Last week was so jammed up with 40k goodness this had a delay.  We leads up to and talk about how the Grand Narrative was and also the 40k and Age of Sigmar US Open Series Finale.

Hey folks,

Please consider grabbing an FTN T-shirt to help us celebrate the shows anniversary. The link can be found here. Proceeds will go to doing something nice for cast members of the show. The sticker is cool too and has been on my laptop for a year.

Wow! In the first part of the episode we kick it off talking about how this will be two episodes in one.  That is totally my fault (Paul) and I apologize. The Grand Narrative took up a ton of well deserved time.  In this episode we tack on this week’s content to the episode we recorded the week before.  Thanks in advance for the understanding.

Please check out the Twitch stream replays for all the amazing live and pre-recorded coverage.  We talk to players, cos players and tournament attendees and it is awesome.

Our very own Red Powell got to play in the Grand Narrative and in this episode we talk about his expectations leading up to it and his feelings after the fact.  Spoiler Alert – it’s awesome.

The 40k and Age of Sigmar finale for this event turned out to be nail biters.  Three of the Four events went to Sudden Death rematches where the participants got to play each other three times to decide who took the crown.   None of us expected that and it was incredibly cool to watch.  You get to hear about here.

Forge the Narrative is mostly a Warhammer 40k Podcast. Each episode is about an hour long. This ideally gives you something neat to listen to on your way to work, or on the way back home. Maybe you can even listen while you are painting or modeling!

Please follow us on Twitter and like us on Facebook!

FTN mostly focuses on 40k, but again you will see in the first few episodes we take a severe deep dive into nerdom. These have been a blast to record and I hope they help pass the time for you. We are now on Pandora!! If you’re looking for another place to listen or you’ve shifted to that platform you can find us there.

Alternatively you can subscribe via your own iTunes, and it should update our podcast when we post a new one.
