What's happening out in space? Nothing much, right?

Show Notes:

Run Time: 1:48:31

Adam is sick! Christopher is injured! But, against all odds, they perseverse and end up telling a tale they're both very proud of. Does it hold up? Do you folks like it as much as we do? Gosh, we hope so!

But first, we gotta tell you all about the recording schedule from now through the end of the year! With conventions, holidays, and other travel, our recording schedule is weird for most of the rest of the year. We'll make sure to share the details again in each upcoming Editor's Note, but we wanted to talk through it as well today, since it matters for question submission. Anyway, we go through the whole thing on the air. Tune in and find out!

We hope you enjoy this story! It quickly became one of our favorites. 

Also, get your questions for both Episodes #226 and #227 (Writers’ Room: NightMist and Alpha vs The Court of Blood and Writers’ Room: Tome of the Bizarre Vol. 3 #11, respectively) before this coming Friday, as we're recording both on that day!

Sep 20, 2022

It's another thrilling day, here on the cusp of the spooky months! We're excited for what's to come...

Show Notes:

Run Time: 1:52:09

Before we get into answering questions, interacting with the chat, and telling stories, we go over the monthly schedule! (That is, after goofing around a bit, as per usual.)

  • Tuesday, October 4th: Episode #226: Writers’ Room: NightMist and Alpha vs The Court of Blood
  • Tuesday, October 11th: Episode #227: Writers’ Room: Tome of the Bizarre Vol. 3 #11
  • Tuesday, October 18th: Editor’s Note #60
  • Tuesday, October 25th: Episode #228: Writers’ Room: Writers’ Room: The Story Christopher and Adam Mention Wanting To Tell in Editor's Note #49

(We give a mild story spoiler about each of these during the recording. Listen and find out!)

Then, we get into answering questions, interacting with the chat, and telling stories! It goes pretty well, and a bit longer than the usual Editor's Note!

Join us next time for Episode #225, which is a Writers' Room episode featuring both Greazer and Fashion?! Who authorized this?!?! It's gonna be... well, interesting likely doesn't even begin to cut it. Time will tell!

Join us then!

Sep 13, 2022

Good morning, Avians and Arcanists!

Show Notes: 

Run Time: 1:33:34

What kind of foes are around for a Hero who is mostly a protégé/sidekick/team member for the comparatively short time that she's a hero, especially in relation to the very long time she spent incarcerated after her ONE big villainous outing? Well, that's what this episode is all about! Listen in and learn more!

Join us next week for an Editor's Note — if you're on the Letters Page Patreon, join in the fun with us this Friday at 11 AM Central for a live recording of that Editor's Note!

Sep 6, 2022

The Last Temptation? EVER?!

Show Notes:

Run Time: 1:28:56

We start off by talking about a cat, but not a real cat! Sorry for getting sidetracked. You know us.

Then we talk about Fanatic! And Apostate! And a story that you know, but we've never gotten this in-depth on.

Get your questions about Harpy foes in now!

Aug 30, 2022

It's an older story, but it still checks out!

Show Notes:

Run Time: 1:31:35

We had a lot of fun telling this story! As we mention on the air, we knew many elements of this story going into it, but the stuff we DIDN'T know really bloomed over the course of the recording. We hope you enjoy it, too!

Join us next week for another Writers' Room about another early story: "The Last Temptation of Helena!" 

Aug 23, 2022

Another thrilling Editor's Note! Now, with 100% more online collaboration!

Show Notes:

Run Time: 1:25:31

We're all over the place on this one, as is often the case with live shows... but even MORE so this time! We weave together letter reading, question answering, environment creating, and goof making, one after another with no discernable pattern. Does that make for good listening? Seems unlikely... but perhaps? You decide!

Also, there's a schedule of upcoming episodes! They look a little something like this:

  • Tuesday, September 6th: Episode #223: Writers’ Room: The Last Temptation of Helena
  • Tuesday, September 13th: Episode #224: Creative Process: The Harpy foes
  • Tuesday, September 20th: Editor’s Note #59
  • Tuesday, September 27th: Episode #225: Writers’ Room: Greazer and Fashion Team-Up

Here is a link to the document in which we created the Environment (which we "finalized" a few days after this recording — SPOILERS: we don't even finish it on the air and have to pick it back up later: classic us). Anyway, that doc is pre-editing for both rules consistency and typographical errors. Just enough to make it work and go into playtesting. But that's OK! SCRPG environments are hardy and can stand up to a lot of variation. If anything, we're pretty such we made this one too rough, but that's what you get when you go to a dinosaur island with an active volcano and then you add a bunch of Void nonsense on top of it!

Join us next week for an episode about Aminia Twain saving the Freedom Five! We like to call this one "Episode #222". Pretty catchy, right?

Aug 16, 2022

Paul and I did an episode live! Many of you joined us!

Show Notes:

Run Time: 1:37:16

Trevor did a great job not just making sure the audio worked for making this episode, but also making everything work live, AND he and his partner Jenny sang all of the musical bits LIVE! It was a delight to see him in his element. Meanwhile, Paul and Christopher goofed around on stage, but we brought a lot of you in on it, so the community aspect of this live episode was through the roof. Thank you for explaining Sentinel Comics to my cohost!

If you're on the Letters Page Patreon, please tune in at 11 AM Central time this Friday for this month's Editor's Note livestream show! We're following up from the Nexus Primalis Creative Process episode and making a playable SCRPG Environment with YOUR help! Join us!

Aug 9, 2022

Surprise! Are you surprised? Probably not!

Not that we have a lot to say here. Just wanted to hop on and chat a bit, rather than releasing nothing at all — that's no fun!

We hope you all had a great Gen Con. Heck, we hope we did, too! We recorded and scheduled this minisode at the same time as last week's episode, so this message is time traveling. Like all messages, if you really think about it. Yay, time shenanigans!

Join us next Friday (the 19th, not this coming Friday) for the recording of Editor's Note #58! Sure to be a grand time!

Aug 2, 2022

It's just another episode... or is it? (No it is not.)

Show Notes:

Run Time: 1:22:51

We are plagued by technical difficulties! Early on, Adam says "nothing should be changed", but that doesn't bear out. Give it a listen and see how well Trevor was able to piece together our nonsense!

We're setting up Gen Con right now — if you're at the show, come visit  us in booth #1321! Next week is our regularly schedule Gen Con break, and the week after that will be the recording of the Gen Con LIVE show! After that, on Friday, August 19th, we'll be recording Editor's Note #58, which will be a follow-up to this episode, which we talk about (unexpectedly) during today's episode! If you're on The Letters Page Patreon, please tune in! This will be a community effort! We look forward to a massive creative process with all of you!

Jul 26, 2022

A Southwest Sentinels story? It's been so long!

Show Notes:

Run Time: 1:35:40

We're counting down the days until Gen Con, but we're not quite there yet! We reached out to the Letters Page Patreon contributors for some help narrowing down this topic, and we got a story we might not have told otherwise, which was a blast! We hope you enjoy it as much as we did!

Get your questions in now about Nexus Primalus, as we're creatively processing that strange place this coming Friday for next week's episode!
