An entirely new team of heroes!

Show Notes:

Run Time: 1:25:33

We start right in on the backstories of the heroes who will become the team Daybreak! Starting with:

  • Rockstar
  • Muse
  • Headlong
  • Aeon Girl
  • Muerto

Around 42 minutes in, we get to your questions!

Lots of good questions about the characters. At an hour and 14 minutes in, we get a question that leads to talking about the Principles of each of the members of Daybreak.

Another Sentinel Comics LIVE show today! Come watch us on our Twitch channel at 1:00, Central time!

An episode about America's Newest Legacy!

Show Notes:

Run Time: 1:17:20

(Sorry about this one being 12 hours late - we ran into a technical issue this morning and had to do a bunch of extra work today to get this one up. Thanks for bearing with us, everyone!)

We begin with the history of Pauline Parsons in Sentinel Comics, starting with her first appearance in the '50s! We go on from there through the rest of her appearances, and how her story - and the story of the Legacy line - change across the decades of publication history.

Even given all that, we are treading Legacy stories you're at least somewhat familiar with, for the most part, so it's only a bit after the 23 minute mark that we get to your questions! And we start off with a "song". Yeah. Let's go with "song".

A little after an hour into the podcast, we mention the five members of the team "Daybreak". Here are those team members:

As we talk about around the one hour and thirteen minute mark, earlier today was the first ever episode of Sentinel Comics LIVE! It went great, and we had a decent pile of folks show up to watch! (Here's the videos saved by Twitch. They got broken into part 1, part 2, and the bulk of it in part 3 for some reason. We'll be uploading the whole thing to our YouTube account in high quality at some point soon.) Join us next Tuesday at 1 PM Central.

Also, if you're a Letters Page Patreon supporter, the voting for July's episodes is up now! Go and vote - let your voice be heard!

An Extrasode about how story and mechanics work together in Sentinel Comics games!

Show Notes:

Run Time: 2:01:27

Another extrasode attended live by our Patreon Contributors! Do you want to be a part of our next live recording! Join us on the Letters Page Patreon!

We officially move on to the submitted questions around the 17 minute mark, though we answer a couple questions from the live chat before that.

Finally, after we have talked about all manner of story and mechanics interactions, we talk about the near future of Sentinel Comics - and I'm not talking about the stories from the comic books. Around an hour and 50 minutes in, we explain the plans for OblivAeon, the Letters Page, the Sentinel Comics RPG, and more. There's a lot going on with Sentinel Comics, and we're taking some time to make everything go together correctly.

Thanks for listening!

EXPLOSIONS! POUCHES! LOUD NOISES! It's time to get EXTREME!!!

Show Notes:

Run Time: 1:52:54

EXTREME!

Today's episode is so ridiculously off the chain. There are also lots of actual chains. 

We tell a bunch of EXTREME stories. It gets BRUTAL. This isn't your DAD'S episode!

Really, buckle in, kids - things are about to get WICKED SICK.

In the first ten minutes of the episode, we knock out one of the most BADASS stories you've ever heard... and we're just getting started!

We get to your TOTALLY BADICAL questions just before an hour in.

EXTREME!!!

How do the heroes and villains do what they do?! Let's dig into that!

Show Notes:

Run Time: 1:24:26

We start off with an overview section that's based on the character creation system from the upcoming Sentinel Comics RPG! We go through each of the "Power Sources" from that system and talk about how they relate to the rest of Sentinel Comics. 

Around 30 minutes in, we get to your questions, which end up being the bulk of the episode!

This week, we're recording 3 episodes again, as Christopher is out of town next week for Origins. (If you're there, come say hi!) On Thursday, we'll be recording the X-treme Verse episode! On Friday morning at 11 AM Central, we'll be recording the Story Meets Mechanics Extrasode! It'll be a LIVE recording for the Contributors on our Patreon, and everyone else on the Patreon will get access to that video shortly after the recording is done. Then, later that same day, we'll be recording the Young Legacy episode!

Make sure you get your questions in for those three episodes before then!

Thanks for listening!
