Episode 94: The COG Core

About Children of Gaia:
In Rendaraia, where nature, magic, and civilization have long coexisted, strangers of unknown origin have begun to invade. As war rages between the Terran interlopers and Rendaraian natives, hundreds of unique cultures of wildly varying technologies, traditions, and species are ravaged by an imperial society driven by the rapacious demands of its own politically divided home. But there is more at stake than land or culture: Rendaraia and its invaders are linked more deeply than anyone realizes.
