It's an older story, but it still checks out!
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!"
Another thrilling Editor's Note! Now, with 100% more online collaboration!
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:
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?
Paul and I did an episode live! Many of you joined us!
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!
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!
It's just another episode... or is it? (No it is not.)
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!
A Southwest Sentinels story? It's been so long!
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!
Another successful live show in the bag! Here's the audio.
Run Time: 1:16:37
Too much time spent on banter last time!
Here's the upcoming schedule:
We start off by answering questions about OblivAeon... and then it spirals downward continues fruitfully and interestingly from there!
Join us next week for Episode #220: Writers' Room: A minor villain gets a major triumph! Who can it be?! Time will tell...
Villains for such a friendly fellow? How can it be?!
Run Time: 2:02:47
We start off with a real life tale of peril! If you don't want to hear about me and some of my friends in real life danger, I recommend skipping ahead to around the 35 minute mark. That said, it's a helluva story! And everyone survives! Uh, spoilers, I guess.
Then, we make some villains! We're all over the place on this one, and we're thrilled with the things we came up with. A real cornucopia of evil.
Join us next week for an Editor's Note, or, if you're on the Letters Page Patreon, join us this Friday for the live recording of that Editor's Note!
It's pirate time!
Run Time: 1:48:10
We've got quite the story for you today, and it's all happening live (except for the fact that I did a bunch of middle of the night thinking about the story before we recorded, as discussed on the air).
We tell more than just an issue or two of story in today's episode — we range far and wide, but still manage to go deep on more than just today's cover issue! We've been on a creative roll, and you get to reap the benefits!
Join us next time for a Creative Process episode all about Scholar Villains! Get your questions in now!
Time to get BOLD!
Run Time: 1:38:15
Whew, this is a big one! We've been thinking about this story internally for a while, and we're excited to get to share it with all of you! We hope you enjoy it!
Special thanks today to Greater Than Games employees SaRae Henderson and Twuana Price for their helpful advice and consideration on the history and depiction of this story.
Join us next week, when we tell a La Capitan story!
