A new epic fantasy adventure launches today, but you won’t find it on HBO or in movie theaters. The streaming serial platform Serial Box has launched Born to the Blade, a fantasy series created by Michael R. Underwood. If you like Game of Thrones and The Magicians, but are interested in getting that kind of fantasy in a podcast or radio show format, then this series is for you.

On Wednesday, Serial Box launched its latest collaborative audio-series, Born to the Blade. Unlike other audiobooks or podcasts, Serial Box runs their series like a TV show’s writers’ room. For Born to the Blade the “showrunner” is Underwood, while other writers include Malka Older, Marie Brennan, and Cassandra Khaw. Born to the Blade starts releasing episodes today. The first episode is called “Arrivals.”

Here’s the official description of Born to the Blade:

Youth. Ambition. Power. Oda no Michiko and Kris Denn have much of the first two, and crave the last. To get it, all they must do is survive. For centuries, the Warder’s Circle on the neutral islands of Twaa-Fei has given the nations of the sky a way to avoid war, as their chosen warders settle disputes through magical duels of blade and sigil. But that peace is on the edge of crumbling, crushed between the aggression of the Mertikan Empire and the determination of the still-free nations to not be consumed. Twaa-Fei may be neutral, but it is also home to a million intrigues, schemes, and deadly intentions. Michiko and Kris arrive in this treacherous world together, bladecrafters eager to serve their countries — Michiko as a junior warder for Katuke, a vassal of the empire, Kris as an upstart challenging to win a seat for his home, Rumika, in the Circle. But before the young bladecrafters have even settled in, a power struggle erupts, a man’s head is parted from his shoulders, and every good thing Michiko thinks she knows about the empire comes into question. A storm is coming, and Kris and Michiko stand at its eye. Will it bind the nations of the sky together… or tear it apart?
