Sigil and Blade Episode 2
We’re back! This time with a bit more structure and with a proper crash course on who we are and what we do. We do apologize for a hefty dose of plosives in this recording. Jerry was trying to get his mic settings dialed in so he could spend less time in editing this time around although it worked out well, he was still a bit too close to the mic. Again, many thanks to our Patrons for making this show possible. We hope you enjoy this episode and are eagerly awaiting your responses to our questions, and any feedback you might have for us.
