The end of the end... or is it?

Show Notes:

Run Time: 2:14:02

We get right down to the brassiest of tacks! And it's a good thing, too - there's plenty to talk about, still!

We get to your questions about an hour and 27 minutes in.

Thank you all for listening through the end of the Multiverse! Catch you next month for the very episodes for which you voted!

An Editor's Note for between the two OblivAeon episodes!

Show Notes:

Run Time: 1:01:10

We answer questions NOT about the OblivAeon episodes! However, we will be talking about those in the next Editor's Note!

IMPORTANT NOTE! The morning that this episode is released, we'll be doing a live recording of a "create a story live" episode! It's happening, today, September 20th at 11 AM Central! The live showing will be viewable by everyone on the Patreon! Come join in!

Here's the upcoming schedule:

  • Tuesday, October 2nd: Episode #85: Create a Story Live! (Recording today!)
  • Tuesday, October 9th: Episode #86: Story Arc: Burying the Blade
  • Tuesday, October 16th: Episode #87: SCAUniverse, Phase Two (Part 2)
  • Thursday, October 18th: Extrasode #7: Casting the Voices of Sentinel Comics
  • Tuesday, October 23rd: Episode #88: The Art and Mechanics of Incapacitation
  • Thursday, October 25th: Editor’s Note #23
  • Tuesday, October 30th: Episode #89: Something Wicked… (Halloween Special)

And here's the customary photo of next month's release calendar:

The bulk of the questions section of this episode is spent on various topics from the Vertex line of Sentinel Comics, but after that, we also go on to talk about a few other things, including:

  • When Sentinel Comics stories happen in the "real world"
  • Super-pets?
  • "Super ultra kawaii" manga comics?
  • And even some thanks!

We hope you can join us at 11 AM, Central today for our live "create something" episode recording! And look forward to part 2 of the OblivAeon story next Tuesday!

It's officially the beginning of the end.

Show Notes

Run Time: 2:16:09

We jump right into the story, not wasting too much time messing around as we often do. And! You get to hear hints of some new music! What could this music be? Only time will tell.

Initially, we go through snapshots of various events that lead up to OblivAeon. But, as we get deeper into the OblivAeon story, we zoom in more and more. 

That said, it's half an hour into the episode before OblivAeon finally reaches Earth. And by that point, there have already been two major character deaths. Yikes!

Just past an hour and 51 minutes in, we get to some of your OblivAeon questions. More coming next week!

Upcoming cool event: on Thursday morning of this very week, we'll be doing a live stream for all of our Patreon supporters! We're releasing another "Create Something Live" episode in early October, and we're recording it on Thursday, September 20th, at 11 AM Central time. Only the Contributor level supporters will be in the chat, but the video will be available to everyone on the Letters Page Patreon.

Also, this morning, we're launching a Kickstarter for the great game Homebrewers. Go check it out. It's genuinely a blast.

Look forward to the second part of the OblivAeon story next week!

The end of the beginning of the end. Or is it the beginning of the end of the beginning?

Show Notes:

Run Time: 2:03:17

We start with important info: don't listen to this episode. That is, if you don't have OblivAeon yet, we think you should wait. Now, if you're cool about spoilers, then go for it. But there's a few big things in this episode, and it's only going to get worst as the month progresses. That said, we're shipping out more and more copies of OblivAeon every day, so you will have it soon!

So, after some chatting and disclaiming, we get into the overview of the scions' stories just before the 5 minute mark. And we start with a bunch of stuff about OblivAeon's backstory, in fact! This episode starts off FAST!

After going through all of the scions, we get to your questions - following the same structure as the scion overview - at around 44 minutes into the episode.

I'm not going to say more in these show notes. Like I mentioned above, some big reveals here, so you should listen and experience it yourself! 

More on OblivAeon next week!

Sep 6, 2018

The most ill-advised episode ever.

Show Notes:

Run Time: 1:28:25

As we quickly realize, us formulating and planning out ways to destroy the world or take over all the people or anything along those lines... makes for a pretty dark episode. We're definitely going on some watch lists now.

That said, a lot of the episode is caught up in arguing semantics and logistics. This is why supervillains frequently work alone. If they did work together, they'd be more likely to make a podcast or a bunch of games.

For those of you on the Letters Page Patreon, tomorrow morning the voting will go up for what episodes we will create next month! The topic submission stuff is up now, but today's the last day to submit topics that we'll look at for next month. Get ready to vote on September 7th!

Sep 4, 2018

Let's talk about... EVERYTHING.

Show Notes:

Run Time: 3:03:21

This episode is the most info-dump episode we've ever done, but it's all gotta get out there. We're doing a lot of connecting the dots between stories we've told across all of the episodes leading up to this one. But there's still lots of story to be found here!

We jump right into it, digging in hard to the year by year of Sentinel Comics, since the beginning of the Golden Age. 

Not really a lot to say in the show notes that we're not saying in the episode - we go through it all! You're just going to have to listen to find out more!

After 2 grueling hours and 16 arduous minutes of overview, we finally get to your questions.

As promised just after the 2 hour and 49 minute mark: Brian, here's that cover!

We have a brief future segment around the 2 hour and 56 minute mark, and then proceed on to a brief closing, including name reading. This month is just getting started, and it's already heavy stuff!

Thanks for listening!
