So is this a standalone series now, or will it also remain a part of AROG?

Either way, these episodes are always great and almost always offer new information.
I know I should really re-read those manuscripts most ancient.

That only depends on community's feedback (although let's be honest, these are hilarious!).

It's highly recommended to re-read them at least once very two years ;P

I loved the books (I read some of them multiple times.) Because I read them, this series does not contribute much to me. At the same time the refusal to use spoilers (I understand and agree with the choice not to,) kinda limits the knowledge benefit to someone who has not read the books. I thought the video was well acted and the script kinda funny (in a cheesy over the top kind of way,) but I wonder who the target audience is?

Being a wiki maniac, these didn't tell me something I didn't know aside from the fact that I should really read the books at some point...although I know that too xD

Interested in how it will play out though, maybe see if something new occurs xD

Grand! My compliments and commendations to the Mad Alchemist! Let us hear more of this learned lore, of those things which lie beyond the narrow borders and confines of the cards!

Unless I'm much mistaken, he's one of the RED writers.

Keep them coming please, this is really entertaining. And it's great that you are encouraging people to read the books through this series. Mr. Sapkowski approves

Hmm... Those hands...


Anyhoo, doesn't matter if these are going stay as part of A Round Of Gwent or as it's own series, I like these little episodes Even though I have read the books (and I should definitely do that again some day), these are nice to watch. These small glimpses brings the books and all those awesome stories back into my mind.

If this is getting its own series, could it be possible to get few more cards per episode, maybe five or something? *blinking cute eyes*

For some reason I was expecting that the "hidden leek" behind Adalbert would have changed spot this time, but no. It was still in the same spot than last time.

What? You think that those are not cute?

Okay, let's try something else then...

Great. It was interesting to watch. Even though I've read the books( for the first time ) before the Witcher 1 was even out. And read them like a dozen times since. Nothing new in the video but still cool. I like how the storyteller abruptly ending his speech just before spoilers. Incentivizing new people to read the books. Hope there will be more content like this. Expanding the game beyond the game itself.

That awkward moment when you realize that you'll never spell the word "regicide" correctly again...

Really enjoyed this, the theatrics and set pieces made it fun, so even if you know the lore, it feels kind of like your grandparents telling you old tales you've heard 100 times before but still enjoy. I want mooooooore.
