Jen’s Lore Corner – King Kanai – Episode 011

Welcome to Jen’s Lore Corner, a podcast about the lore of the Diablo video game series. This podcast started as a segment on the Shattered Soulstone podcast. I decided to re-release those segments in their own podcast.

New content started with Episode 010.

In this episode, I talk about the lore of King Kanai, the beloved true king of the Barbarians. The character was named after a real person.

Before I started recording this episode, I put together a blog post with everything I know about King Kanai. It has screenshots from the Diablo III game, and links to all my source material.

The Lore of King Kanai

King Kanai is an NPC (non-player character) in Diablo III. If you have ever taken one of your characters to obtain Kanai’s Cube, you have seen Kanai’s ghost appear and point at the Cube.

But, who was King Kanai? There’s plenty of lore about him in the Diablo III game, and some additional information about the inspiration for the character that is presented outside of the game.

Capitalism is the Problem – Episode 045

In this episode, I read a piece of my writing that I wrote a few days ago. The inspiration was the recent layoffs at Blizzard/Activision/King.

It turns out I had a whole lot to say about not only that situation but also about capitalism.

I read “Capitalism is the Problem” on episode 045 of Words of Jen.

I’ve noticed a pattern – and I’m not the first one to have seen it. The inspiration for this piece of writing, sadly, comes from the news of the massive layoffs at Blizzard/Activision/King.

Layoffs like these keep happening. Why? The problem is capitalism. Fortunately, there are solutions to this problem that can be implemented in the United States if enough people get together and push for change.

It has been called “Single-Payer Health Care”, “Medicare For All”, “Medicaid For All”, and “Universal Health Care”. Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Singapore, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom all have Universal Health Plans.

America Needs Universal Health Care.

This blog post has a timeline of information about the Universal Health Care in the United States of America. It includes studies that show it can work better than our insurance-based system, ideas for implementing it, and how it would help people.

Galthrak The Unhinged

This is Galthrak the Unhinged. I got this pet from a Menagerist Goblin in between Season 11 and Season 12.

The flavor text on Galthrak the Unhinged says: From the time he was a broodling, all he wanted was to be a Rift Guardian. He studied for many years, but was ultimately found wanting. Take him on a rift with you, and he’ll be happy.

Kitchen Scramble App: Little Wok

Little Wok is the ninth town in the Kitchen Scramble game. As you may have guessed, all of the recipes in this town resemble foods from various Asian countries.

In Chef Academy 2 (the previous town) Pepper is offered the job of teaching International Cuisine next semester. She goes to Little Wok to start learning more about international cuisine while the Academy is on break.

Familiar – by J. Robert Lennon

Elisa Brown is driving home after visiting the grave of her eldest son. Her car is old, and there is a crack in the windshield that she never got fixed.

Suddenly, the crack disappears. Elisa finds herself driving a much newer car, wearing clothing she never would have chosen for herself, in a body that is hers… but different.

These are not the only things that have changed. She has absolutely no idea what happened or how to fix it.

Highlights from Season 16 (Season of Grandeur)

Season 16 of Diablo III was called Season of Grandeur because players benefited from the legendary power of the Ring of Royal Grandeur.

This ring reduces the number of items needed for set bonuses by 1 (to a minimum of 2). In short, it “unlocked” the set bonuses of every set, for every class, earlier than typical. Players did not need to actually have a Ring of Royal Grandeur in order to benefit from this buff.
