Part 3 of our series on the Realm Online, a 1996 MMORPG developed originally by Sierra Online.

Part 2 of our series on music from Earthbound - this time on the "Your Sanctuary" themes found throughout the game. Also Kai's experience streaming of Twitch. Correction: We kept saying "My Sanctuary" in the episode - Kai got that stuck in his head and Stephen followed his lead on it. It is properly "Your Sanctuary."

We dig into 22 years of the game's history, changes made, different owners, but most of all the community. This online game was really the first of its kind, transitioning from the older MUDs to the more modern MMORPGs, and proved to be an important step in gaming history.
