In spite of all this, she feels inadequate, and is here to find some kind of belonging or purpose.

Yuria knows that They Need Me.

Yuria is played by Riley.

Dog.png

Normal Dog

This is what dogs are. Normal Dog is the Pumpkin Patch's Gunner, and Harbinger's Companion. They are just tentacles, and nothing else.

08: World Building

In today's episode of To Winter's End, we build the world. Our heroes talk about the world as they know it, filling it with cool places to see, people to meet, and problems to solve. Like all character creation episodes, this one is technically optional, but we will be referencing the world we made in this episode a lot going forward.

As this is a map-building episode, there is also a video version available by clicking here. I highly recommend watching the video, but listening with the full map open should also work fine.
