This Editor's Note has been released later in the day today, as we recorded it live this morning! Sorry for the delay, but we're all caught up now and back to our mostly regular schedule.
Run Time: 1:11:19
Here's the upcoming schedule!
And here's a photograph of one of our whiteboards! (It's the one with the recording/release schedule.)
Today, we talk about a lot of stuff! It can mostly be broken down into the categories of SCRPG related things, Fanatic and Ra questions, and Other Questions. Enjoy! Get your questions for Day in the Life: Unity, and Science in the Multiverse ASAP!
Temporary Show Notes:
Run Time: 57:57
This is the Myriad episode. A myriad of things are discussed (including a few spoilers if you haven't played the Urban Infestation one-shot)!
We make another thing LIVE! What kind of thing? Who knows?!
Run Time: 1:23:15
OK, look, we've gotta stall for a while, so it's a few minutes into the episode before we actually get down to brass tacks, but then we start making stuff!
We recorded this live in front of the Letters Page Patreon supporters, with many of the Contributors in the chat - you'll hear some of their names, as they were an important part of the creative process!
I don't want to spoil anything, so you'll just have to listen to the episode...
[spoilers incoming - don't look below this if you want to avoid spoilers!]
...but I will give you this quick sketch that Adam did right after the episode:
Shear Force vs the agents of K.U.D.Z.U.!
We'll catch you next week for Myriad!
We're talking about a cowboy! Again!
Run Time: 1:04:34
No overview, because we did that in an episode two years ago! For reference, check out Episode #25 all about Chrono-Ranger here.
Then, we get to your questions and immediately go deep on literature, consciousness, reality... look, this one might get heavy. Besides, we have to talk about time stuff again, so, yeah.
The questions cover a lot of Time-Slinger stories, telling you what he's up to now, and also drops a couple of major story elements, one of which no one knows but CON.
A quick note about CON: both of us over the course of the episode use all kinds of pronouns for CON - he/she/it/they are all employed. That's partially because we're used to being cagey about giving answers on things, but we've already revealed the truth of CON in the past, so we should have been using "she" the whole time. Sorry for any confusion.
This Friday is a "Create a Thing LIVE", so if you're on the Letters Page Patreon, you can join us Friday at 11 AM, Central time!
Also, thank you to everyone for supporting us on the Sentinel Comics RPG Kickstarter. It did everything we wanted and more. We're blown away. Thank you.
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!
