Avast! This week the Dread Pirate Kat and Tim-beard board the deck of the Undergopher for a swashbuckling discussion of 7th Sea!
If you can’t tell from the title we had so much to say that we’ve broken the discussion into two parts. This week it’s mostly focused on the first edition of the game.

This week we chat with author Hans Cummings about his latest book Zack Jackson & The Hives of Valtra

Update: On his website Hans had a couple of things he wanted to add:

I spoke about how part of my inspiration for Zack Jackson was Star Trek and the optimistic view of the future it has. I wanted to write about a future I felt was cool and would actually want to live in. A big part of the Zack Jackson universe is the wide-spread acceptance of, well, just about everything. I make an effort to show how diverse and interesting life and people are, and if a character doesn’t understand or is just being exposed to something for the first time, I use it as an opportunity for character growth. I’ve found that to refrain from beating readers over the head with a message of acceptance and diversity, the best thing to do is just mention such things briefly and have the characters accept it without a word, as though it is the most natural thing. After all, diversity is natural and we should be accepting of it because that is the way things should be.

This week on UnderDiscussion we’re joined by both Lance and Kat to discuss fantasy fiction. We mention the awesome site Goodreads, admit that we’re totally the proof of belasaro’s maxim, what we are reading, what he have read, what makes a fantasy novel (and what we think makes a good fantasy novel) and we finish up with our assigned reading list.
