Let's do an Editor's Note mostly about Sentinel Comics: the RPG related stuff!
Run Time: 1:17:35
Hey, everyone! This was a fun one. Special thanks to all of the delightful Letters Page Patreon Contributors who were on Discord.
Welcome back to Trevor! He's back to being our full time editor - we loved having Zach for those weeks, but it's also great to have Trevor back.
Here's the upcoming schedule!
In this episode, we talk about a bunch of stuff, including but not limited to:
See you all next time for slingin'!
Let's hear YOUR stories!
Run Time: 1:45:09
We're excited to get into our first official Sentinel Comics RPG timeline story! And it's one that many of YOU have played!
After talking a bit about life and the SCRPG Kickstarter (currently happening!), we get into an actual overview a bit after the 4 minute mark!
Important Note: this episode is FULL of spoilers for the SCRPG Starter Kit. If you don't want spoilers, walk away now. Save yourself!
We go through each issue of the starter kit adventure, explaining it from our point of view that way we have a frame of reference when we get to your questions.
Which we do at around 44 minutes into the episode!
Now we're at the most delightful part of the episode to us. Getting to hear what happened in your games is a real treat!
Also! This episode is the last one edited by Zach, our delightful and capable interim editor! If, after this episode, you miss Zach's calming presence like we do, fear not! You can find Zach in several places:
Thanks so much, Zach - we couldn't have done it without your help!
Some final things to share here:
And keep being such great heroes, everyone!
Time to talk about a heavy metal band! Also, they're bad guys!
Run Time: 57:47
After only a few minutes of jokes, mouth music, and brief overviews, we get into the questions just before the 5 minute mark.
Then we talk about this band! Here are the members of Helfyre, from left to right in the sketch above:
Lots of great questions about these ridiculous villains. They're gonna rock you! But, like, not to sleep. To DEATH! But really, they're not killing their fans. Not actually. No profit in that.
Don't forget! The Sentinel Comics RPG Kickstarter is still going on - go check it out! And, as always, the Letters Page Patreon is a great place to get even more into the Sentinel Comics stuff we're doing!
Let's talk about the final five environments!
Run Time: 1:13:08
OK, so right off the bat, we get it terribly wrong. We claim that the SCRPG Kickstarter is live. When this episode goes live, that's not the case. The Kickstarter goes live an hour after this episode launches. We just did a bad job at thinking about time when we recorded this episode. Go us. That said, if you're listening to this episode right when it goes live, the SCRPG Kickstarter will go live around the 1 hour mark of this episode!
Moving right along, just before the 5 minute mark, we get into your questions, starting with questions about Champion Studios and San Alonso.
At around the 23 minute mark, we start in on questions about Fort Adamant and everything going on there.
A bit after 32 minutes in, we visit scenic Mordengrad! Such a lovely place. We dance with the goat!
Then, just after the 41 minute mark, we take a trip to the Nexus of the Void. Totally normal place. NBD.
And then, finally, shortly after the 57 mark, we get to Plavu'Col, the Maerynian Refuge.
The Kickstarter campaign for Sentinel Comics: the Roleplaying Game is live by now! Go check it out!
See you next time.
Who won the Listeners' Choice Awards? Everyone!
Run Time: 1:16:57
We announce the winners of Funniest Episode, Worst Episode, Best Audio Production Episode, and Best Storytelling Episode, as well as Funniest Question, Saddest Question, Best Fan Theory Question, and Most Revealing Question! Who won? You'll just have to listen to find out!
After than, we talk about the upcoming schedule at just before the 35 minute mark. Here what we'll be talking about next month!
Here's a photo of our recording calendar:
Finally, around 37 minutes in, we finally get to your questions, starting off with a most grievous mistake on our part, unsurprisingly! But then moving on to many interesting topics.
See you all next time!
Let's talk about Ra... and friends!
Run Time: 45:11
After breaking down the plot to some movie or other, we actually do an Overview section! Bringing it back! Telling you what happens in Baptism by Fire, since you've already heard what happens in the War of Heliopolis limited series, as well as the Horus of Two Horizons one-shot.
Then, after a lot of issue-by-issue storytelling, we get to your questions just before the 25 minute mark.
Thanks to everyone, including our Patreon supporters, our producer Trevor, our interim editor Zach, and most especially listeners like you!
We hope to see you all on the Letters Page Patreon this coming Friday - January 18th - for the live recording of this month's Editor's Note, including announcing the Listeners' Choice Awards!
Everybody, everybody cut footloose!
Arrr! It be pirate time, mateys!
Run Time: 1:00:05
We get to questions right away and go through all of these scurvacious sailors of s...time?
The first question of the day ends up going in depth on every member of the crew, so that takes up the majority of the episode, but also gives you pretty much everything you want! Enjoy!
Many thanks to Zach Denoncour, our interim podcast editor! He's stepping in for Trevor for the next several weeks, and we're thrilled to have him aboard!
Look forward to next time, when things really heat up!
We did tell you that there was no episode on January 1st.
But, to be fair, you know that what we do on this podcast is tell lies.
That said, this is not so much an episode. Just a quick hello and thank you. Looking forward to 2019. Thanks to all of you for being a part of it.
Happy Holidays from Sentinel Comics to all!
Run Time: 41:13
We have a bunch of great questions today, so after only a few minutes of holiday lies, we get into those questions! And within those questions, we tell a few holiday tales. Enjoy!
(Also, many thanks to Matthew Bender for his delightful dramatic reading! You'll know it when you hear it.)
At the end of the episode, we finally reveal the schedule for January of 2019!
See you next year!
It's time for the Letters Page Listeners' Choice Awards nominations announcement!
Run Time: 1:35:30
We have a special guest for this episode, and he makes the show even better!
We spend the first portion of this recording discussing the recently announced awards. Once you've listened to all of that - including the most excellent question nominations - it's time to vote on your favorites! Check out the voting form here.
After that, we SHOULD get to the schedule, but we're a week behind on that, so go to the Letters Page Patreon and vote on what episodes will start off 2019. So much voting! (The schedule for January 2019 will be announced in next week's episode.)
And then, after all of those things, we finally get to your questions with the help of our special guest! We start in on the questions at just after the 44 minute mark.
Only one episode left this year, folks! Join us next week for some holiday cheer!
