Tonight we begin our journey of the Forerunner Trilogy authored by Greg Bear. Cryptum is the first book in the series following a young Forerunner by the name of Bornstellar. Rebelling against his father to become a Builder, he is sent to live with Miners, a lower class on Erde-Tyrene, or Earth. While there, he is convinced by his ancilla to search for ancient Precursor artifacts. His search leads him to stumble across one of the most powerful Forerunners: the Didact. Life as he knew it would never be the same marking the beginnings of what would become his legacy.
For this discussion we are joined by Eric Neustadter (e), Operations Manager for Xbox Live and co-host of Major Nelson Radio, Nevin Douglas (CruelLEGACEY), creator and producer of Playtime Show and co-host of the Waypoint Community Modcast, and Bryan Newman, Owner of B2 Films and HBO lurker. We will be broadcasting tonight with the lobby opening at 8:00PM Eastern on our Twitch channel. If you have not read the book and do not want to be spoiled, then you may wish to skip this podcast.
