Hello Podwalkers,

Welcome back to another episode of the Goblin Lore Podcast! Alex is back after a few episodes away and he comes back to the podcast with an episode topic he had been wanting us to cover for a while. Hobbes and Alex take on psychographics/aesthetics when it comes to Magic players. This is a topic that we’ve talked around, mentioned, and hinted at but realized we had not tackled head on.

Part 1 deals with these categories and introduces the idea of different ways to look at them. Part 2 will bring that to our own lives and the nature of personality. Today’s episode mentions a lot of works previously done especially by Mark Rosewater so we are including links to these.




Again we would like to state that Black Lives Matter (with a link to where you can offer support both monetary and not).

Goblin Lore is also are proud to have partnered with Grinding Coffee Co a black, LGBT+ affiliated and owned, coffee business that is aimed at providing coffee to gamers. You can read more about their mission here. You can use our partner code for discounted coffee!


As promised, we plan to keep these Mental Health Links available moving forward too. For general Mental Health the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) has great resources for people struggling with mental health concerns as well as their families. We also want to draw attention to this article on stigma from NAMI’s site.

If you’re thinking about suicide or just need someone to talk to right now, you can get support from any of the resources below.
