Extra Lore #25: Monster Hunter


Greetings, Guardians!

Wanted to throw together an summary of the last episode, for those who might not be regular visitors to the Podbean site.

As always, if anyone has any questions or concerns, my door is always open.

Blue out


This installment of the Extra Lore series takes the team to a world where players are invited to experience the ultimate hunting experience – a world full of monsters that are as amazingly fascinating as they are dangerous. The Monster Hunter series revolves around nature & discusses the search for balance within this new world – indeed, this balance with nature is one of, if not the, most important themes of the series’ story. However, this series is largely portrayed visually – which, while this medium presents an awesome sense of immersion to the game, it also makes detailed critical analysis frustrating at times. Much of the information in this series is gained through inference of the material offered.


Weekly Question for Next Episode (Vendor Lore: Benedict 99-40)
