Let's talk about looooove.
Run Time: 1:19:00
A strange change in format today: after some mild preamble, we start of by getting into your questions, just before the 5 minute mark!
Then, we spend over a third of the episode on a single letter...
The questions cover the vast majority of the things we wanted to talk about today, so enjoy the process of us keeping up with you fine folks!
Spoilers: At around an hour and 9 minutes in, we talk about a Biomancer story. A bit of the recording was lost here, but the thing we talked about that didn't make it into the episode is that, after her death, the body of the woman we mention is enshrined in Biomancer's lair, and sometimes he makes fleshchildren to look like her, but he always destroys them because he cannot match her perfection. For all his "work toward perfection", he cannot match the perfection of his one true love. Also, he's super creepy. /spoilers
After that, our brief "overview" - which is more of a "let's fill in the couple things no one asked about" bit - starts about an hour in.
For our Patreon supporters, the voting is already up for the August episodes, so make sure your voice is heard! Get your vote in now!
We go out to explore SPAAAAAAACE!!
Run Time: 1:21:51
Right off the bat, we mention that the day this episode goes live, we're doing another live stream of the Sentinel Comics RPG! Come join us on our Twitch channel!
We then mention that our Patreon Collectors and Contributors can submit topics for August now. Check out this Patreon post about it!
At the two minute and 45 second mark, Adam realizes what we should name this episode. And lo, that is what the episode is now named. Let it be written.
Then, we finally get into space stuff.
The overview is mostly breaking down how space is used across the different eras of comics publication, and also how that all fits together to show the primary purpose of space in storytelling.
After that, we get into your questions just after the 12 minute mark, letting your questions about space shape the order we talk about the variety of space stories.
Questions spark us to talk about:
Around an hour and 14 minutes in, we talk a little about the future of space in the various worlds of Sentinel Comics.
And then we tease a bit more about Prime War before reading names and signing off.
Join us next week for an episode about love.
First things first: we're not lawyers and no one should ever take our advice! That aside, we're gonna give advice anyway!
Run Time: 57:15
We start off with a bunch of disclaimers, because boy howdy are we NOT lawyers.
Then, we jump right into the lies.
The questions begin at five and a half minutes in.
Join us next week for an episode about EVERYTHING SPAAACE!!!
Diving deeply into 6 comic book issues!
Show Notes: 1:20:23
We start off by raving about a game we've been playing a lot lately... you'll just have to listen to find out!
Then, once we get down to brass tacks, as they say, we talk about a bunch of other comic books before we can even get to Dark Watch #1. But then, we do! And wow are there some twists and turns!
Around 47 minutes into the episode, we read your letters to you!
On Thursday of this week, we've got another Extrasode coming your way! We've already recorded it, and it's a weird one, but no Il Alimento, certainly. Whew!
Keep on saving the Multiverse!
Another Editor's Note full of delightful things!
Run Time: 1:15:55
Here's the schedule for July!
And a photo of the calendar on our wall!
We go to your questions after 11 minutes in.
Topics of this Editor's Note:
Thanks for listening, everyone!
An entirely new team of heroes!
Run Time: 1:25:33
We start right in on the backstories of the heroes who will become the team Daybreak! Starting with:
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!
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!
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!!!
Run Time: 1:52:54
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.
How do the heroes and villains do what they do?! Let's dig into that!
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!
