An Appendix N literary podcast for players of the Dungeon Crawl Classics RPG. Reviewing classic fantasy and helping to bring it to life at the gaming table.
The planet was Earth. The time was fifty thousand years from now. Magic and witchcraft worked and the Old Science didn't. Why this was so, nobody knew - it had always been that way during the long tyranny of the Empire of the East. During that same period there had always been little bands of rebels using fragments of white magic against the demonic armies. Rolf was the latest of these rebels - and he had on his side the mysterious power known as Ardneh.
When Rolf finally finds Ardneh, he learns of the Change through which Ardneh forced technology to be replaced by magic in this alternate Earth of a far distant future. The discovery of Ardneh’s origin, the climactic showdown of fifty millennia of cosmic contention, and Rolf's part in it, combine to make a thrilling adventure that concludes the struggle between the Old Technology and the New Demonology.
Welcome to the Sanctum Secorum podcast. Tonight we discuss Fred Saberhagen's novel Changeling Earth (aka Ardneh's World) as well as Daniel J. Bishop's adventure Silent Nightfall.
