This is a big one... in a lot of ways. But well worth it for what's to come.

Show Notes:

Run Time: 3:11:29

You read that run time correctly - this episode is over 3 hours. However! It is only our second longest episode, losing to the Southwest Sentinels/Void Guard episode by 7 minutes!

That said, we cover a TON of stuff in this episode, so let's get right down to it!

We start off by going through the meta-verse of the publication company of Sentinel Comics. What led to the Mist Storm Universe? How was it handled and published in the world that Sentinel Comics were real actual comics? Who wrote these books and why? What sorts of decisions were made? We get INTO IT.

After revealing all that, including a name of a comics line that we've never said publicly before, we finally get into actually talking about the stories and timelines of the Mist Storm Universe at around 24 minutes in.

So! Then! Just after the one hour mark, after talking about the stories from several comics series, we get back into the meta, talking about decisions made by the publisher. That doesn't take too long, and after a bit of banter, we're into the stories of each of the books from those decisions.

Then we go BACK to the meta verse around an hour and 14 minutes in. Stuff is happening! Things are falling apart! Why? Well, that's what we're talking about! Listen on, dear friends!

From then on, we're jumping back and forth between in-comics stories and meta-publishing-universe stories right up until we get to the stories that end the Mist Storm universe.

At around an hour and a half in, we cover one of the big ending stories that we think you'll be excited to hear.

Throughout the episode, we keep saying things like, "oh, we'll get to that soon." Well, just after an hour and 41 minutes in, we get to the stories of those characters. Whew! It's a lot of stories about a lot of characters. 

Around two hours and 23 minutes in, we get into the story of the Prime War limited series. Larger than life stuff, there.

Finally, at the two-and-a-half-hours mark, we finally dig into your questions. Though, we do speed through them, as we've already covered a LOT up to this point.

We do have a notable future section at 2 hours and 51 minutes in, which covers what titles come out of the Prime War series. More cool stuff there! This episode just keeps giving!

Then, just before the end of episode at around 3 hours and 4 minutes, we read all of the Patreon backers at the name-reading levels. Whew! A big finish to a big episode!

See you next week for another big episode about a lot of stories: the Multiverse recap episode!

Aug 23, 2018

We had a great time playing the Sentinel Comics RPG on Twitch in July, and this Extrasode is all about how that went!

Show Notes:

Run Time: 1:12:20

We recommend you watch the live streams before listening to this episode. Here they all are!

At the beginning, we talk about the stuff that Christopher and Adam have wanted to talk about this whole time but have not gotten a chance to go over yet, as the veil of secrecy between the GM and the players had to be maintained! But now, the fetters are loosed, and the talking commenced!

Then, around 18 minutes in, we get to your questions.

We finish with questions and wrap up with some discussion about what comes next just after the 1 hour and 5 minute mark.

See you this coming Tuesday for an episode about the MistStorm Universe... and how it ends! And more!

Aug 21, 2018

Let's pause on talking about fake comic book and talk about fake cartoons instead!

Show Notes:

Run Time: 2:18:13

We covered Phase One of the Sentinel Comics Animated Universe in Episode 64 - now we're back to talk about Phase Two, but there's way too much to cover in a single episode if we're going to keep going into the contents of EVERY episode... and we want to keep going into all that! Thus, this episode is JUST about Season Two of the Freedom Five animated show. We will do a Part 2 episode when you fine folks on the Patreon vote on it, which I imagine will happen shortly!

We get right into all of that, right off the bat, and then about five minutes in, we dig into the first episode of the season!

Around the 1 hour and 43 minute mark, we get to your questions!

At about 2 hours and 10 minutes in, we go to the future section, in which we talk about the future of the Sentinel Comics Animated Universe (mainly the rest of Phase 2). Then, in the wrap-up, we talk about some important Future of the Letters Page business. You'll just have to listen to find out!

For those of your on our Patreon, voting just went live for the September Extrasode. Go let your voice be heard!

Tune in Thursday for an Extrasode about our recent Sentinel Comics RPG Live streams!

Aug 14, 2018

We had a thrilling Gen Con! And now, you get to listen in on how at least a couple hours of that show went for us!

Show Notes:

Run Time: 2:00:35

We had an exciting musical guest this year: Jean-Marc Giffin! He's the composer behind all of the music for the Sentinels of the Multiverse video game by Handelabra, and lots of other great music as well! If you're one of our Patreon supporters, there will be a post on the Patreon later today with the music files for Jean-Marc's versions of the Letters Page songs, along with the original files for those songs, as we've never released them before and thought that now might be a good time.

The bulk of this episode is Q&A, though we do have an Overview and Future section! You'll just have to listen in to find out what we talk about.

Speaking of our Patreon, we'll be doing a live episode on Thursday morning of this week for our Contributors, so if that's you, come hang out with us at 11 AM, Central! During that live recording, we'll announce what we're doing for next month's schedule, and that'll get posted here next week! Exciting times are upon us!

Looking forward to getting back into the regular Letters Page schedule with all of you!

Aug 7, 2018

We just got back from Gen Con last night, and wow are we tired! 

We are very eager to get back to recording, but for now, enjoy this tiny tinysode! Catch you next time!
