Discussion

This week, Nemesis and Alca7raz talk about “The Lost Treasure of Griffonstone!” Including the return of Gilda! Plus the world-building. They even have a bit to say about the inevitable shipping that will result!

They also have issue #30 of the Friendship is Magic comic to review! The main series hasn’t exactly been on a hot streak lately. They think this issue will probably help turn that around.
