Darker Days Episode #22: The Wrath of Mark

Darker Days Episode #22

Mark and Mike hit it off with some White Wolf news and the triumphant return of the Secret Frequency, discussing the Dyatlov Pass incident.

We take a look back at the Old World of Darkness and talk about everything. Absolutely everything. Vampire? Obviously. Werewolf? Totes. Mage? Duh. Wraith? Heck yeah! Changeling? Sure. Dark Ages? Got it. We'd go on with Hunter, Kindred of the East, Mummy, Demon and Orpheus but our vocabulary ran out and you get the picture.
