On the Shoulders of Dwarves

--- Eran Aviram ---

**Feburary 2021:** Dwarves! We're prolonging our hiatus until 2022. We hope to be able to return earlier, but things haven't changed in our lives and until the corona epidemic is over it's unlikely we'll be able to go back to any routine. We're interested in doing at least something weekly or semi-weekly, even if not a podcast - if you have any ideas, please send us! To [show@dwarfcast.net](mailto:show@dwarfcast.net) **September 2020:** Recently, we've been unable to dig into new seams of RPGitium, and forge new episodes. Too occupied were we, with the feeble matters of life: new jobs, maintaining households, having a kid, surviving a global pandemic. This trend is not expected to change in the foreseeable future, and so we put our mountain hold into a magical slumber. Our gates shall remain sealed until 2021, at which point we'll look again upon our lands and re-examine the ritual. Have fun storming your castles! Uri, Eran and Aviv (We still read and post in our group, [On the Shoulders of Dwarves](http://www.facebook.com/groups/dwarfpodcast))
