One thought on “Episode Ninety Three – Do Not Miss A Visit To The Muse

  1. Tim Soholt says:

    It occurs to me that the muse liberation idea could be run from the other side. Read “muse” as “bound spirit yearning to be a free spirit” and it almost becomes just another shadowrun.

    Although the things required to complete the job could be downright esoteric. An astral quest to *un*summon a spirit, perhaps? (And, of course, that last sentence is almost completely opaque if you aren’t familiar with Shadowrun.)
