ozoneocean is back! He and skoolmunkee are changing the features format a bit this week to more discussion, less blurb. As there wasn't a Quackcast last week, they've got four features to talk about this time. Since they've had to try a few things out this week, the features make up the entire show.

Kroatz joins skoolmunkee today to talk about the huge topic of world-building. All kinds of things should be taken into consideration, so this episode should be a lot of food for thought!
