Alana was with RPGFan for nearly seven years and did a little bit of everything, but writing is her passion. A lover of baking and animals (especially dogs and reptiles), she apparently has a pretty cute accent. If you talk to her about Skies of Arcadia, you've made a friend for life.

This is my absolutely favorite RPG. The card mechanic is so much fun and the game has so much depth. The soundtrack is also incredible. So happy to hear a whole podcast dedicated to it. I'm still praying for a Baten Kaitos III!

Awww I'm always happy to hear from other fans! Thank you so much for the comment. All three of us on the episode (and plenty others I'm sure) want a third game too!
