Hello, Podwalkers, and welcome to the Goblin Lore Podcast! In our twenty-fourth episode, Alex and Joe talk about the Magic: the Gathering world of Rabiah, the setting of the expansion set Arabian Nights and based on the real-life folktales of The 1,001 Arabian Nights. They discuss how Magic has handled sets drawing upon real-world cultures throughout its history, and both the risks and rewards of drawing inspiration from cultures of real people. Magic content creator Shivam Bhatt’s blog post on his response to the creative design of the Kaladesh expansion also forms a strong lived experiential counterpoint to Alex and Joe’s perspectives, and you can find it here. ____________________________________________ We have launched our new Patreon!
