MCP 004 – The Muse, Part 1 of 2

Will Kerenson is a fairly normal college student … well, okay, actually, he’s an aspiring writer, but we all have our odd points. Trouble is, he’s feeling fairly uninspired — until one day, when he encounters a strange young woman who will change his life forever. Join us for part one of this two-part story!

This episode features Beq Vyper as the voice of Callie. She’s a gaming buddy of mine, and I was very glad when she agreed to play this role for me. Thanks, Becky!

Next time on the Metamor City Podcast:

As Trajan hunts for Callie and the icon, Will tries to help keep her out of harm’s way by sheltering her at his apartment. But is there any safe place to hide when a rogue mage is on the loose? Tune in next time for the conclusion of “The Muse” — and until then, keep it on the bright side!
