I'm a big dummy and not sure how to expand the text that I attached to the vid, so in case I screwed up the posting, here is what I wrote (mods feel free to delete this if neccesary):
I recorded this interview with Cole and Patrick at the end of last week. We covered a TON of ground, hence the exhaustive list of timestamps below, and I was amazed at the amount of details they were willing to share about the upcoming Root expansion, including confirmation of the 2 new factions (hint, one ain't Turtles), how minor factions may operate, incorporating a round structure, tournament style faction drafting, and more. In case you can't stand video interviews and don't want to listen via a background window (I get it), I'll have this up on our podcast channel this coming Wednesday.
00:24 - How is quarantine impacting work at Leder HQ?
06:05 - What makes for an ideal playtester?
10:32 - Oath - Can early public feedback compromise creative integrity?

49:37 - Root - Minor Factions & Drafting
54:02 - Root - Adding rounds to a boundless game
01:00:09 - Root - Rats & Badgers; the two new factions
01:07:05 - Root - Balance becoming exponentially more difficult?
01:14:06 - Root - Clockwork expansion 2 & a Big Box?
01:19:56 - Oath & Root - Release & Launch windows
Oh, also please forgive the weird angle and if I seem a little tired. My downstairs studio / game room space had flooded 2 days before and if I panned the camera a bit you'd see loads of the recovery construction. Fortunately the family is safe, most possessions are safe, and damages to the house were altogether minimal compared to most house floods. Studio now has better flooring, new trim, a fresh coat of paint and looks better than ever.
Awesome, thanks for the breakdown as always. If you want to include it as part of the post next time, all you need to do is put all that text in the usual textbox. Otherwise, it'll default to grabbing a snippet of the description you have on your YouTube video.

Oooh I definitely need to watch this. I am so excited for #Oath: Chronicles of Empire and Exile. Leder Games is my favorite publisher.
