Every week, Recall Knowledge recaps the Know Direction content of the past week, a preview of the Know Direction content of the week to come, and the director of operations, Ryan Costello, thoughts on the state of the network.
Not much to say this week, everyone.
I thought I’d be hyping my involvement in Renegade Con Virtual Special Edition, originally scheduled for this weekend. Unfortunately, it was decided that August 27-28 made more sense for the con, as more art and release details will be cemented by then.
This week’s KD is the rescheduled episode of The Lore of Lost Omens: The Mwangi Expanse, which I hyped a couple of weeks ago. I’m still hype, of course. And like Renegade Con, the delay may make the episode better overall since I’ve had more time to review the book.
And there are Network Content developments happening behind the scenes, I’m just not ready to speak publicly about them yet.
Speaking of network releases, here’s a recap of what you might have missed last week from the Know Direction Network:

Behind The Screens – The Subcampaign
By Ryan Costello
Fascinated by how original Hulu animated series Solar opposites is two completely different shows with the slightest overlap, I wrote about how my fellow GMs can use that same idea to change the storytelling dynamic of our campaigns.

Thank goodness for Rob, getting the timely Mwangi Expanse coverage out there. If you can’t wait until Wednesday’s episode, or even if you can, Rob covers the important talking points about this book.
Friday, July 9th
Every Starfinder hardcover changes the game, and from the sounds of it, Tech Revolution is no exception. I have an idea for a swarm species nanocyte, where every member of the swarm is a tiny engineer. And I don’t even play Starfinder!

Former Pathfinder developer Chris Sims recently posted a counter to the argument that adding depth to the cultures of orcs, goblins, and the like “ruins” tabletop RPGs. Perram liked the argument so much, which uses Nazis as a stand-in for fantasy creatures, that he offered to interview Chris about it for an impromptu special episode.
