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!
Arrr! It be pirate time, mateys!
Run Time: 1:00:05
We get to questions right away and go through all of these scurvacious sailors of s...time?
The first question of the day ends up going in depth on every member of the crew, so that takes up the majority of the episode, but also gives you pretty much everything you want! Enjoy!
Many thanks to Zach Denoncour, our interim podcast editor! He's stepping in for Trevor for the next several weeks, and we're thrilled to have him aboard!
Look forward to next time, when things really heat up!
We did tell you that there was no episode on January 1st.
But, to be fair, you know that what we do on this podcast is tell lies.
That said, this is not so much an episode. Just a quick hello and thank you. Looking forward to 2019. Thanks to all of you for being a part of it.
Happy Holidays from Sentinel Comics to all!
Run Time: 41:13
We have a bunch of great questions today, so after only a few minutes of holiday lies, we get into those questions! And within those questions, we tell a few holiday tales. Enjoy!
(Also, many thanks to Matthew Bender for his delightful dramatic reading! You'll know it when you hear it.)
At the end of the episode, we finally reveal the schedule for January of 2019!
See you next year!
It's time for the Letters Page Listeners' Choice Awards nominations announcement!
Run Time: 1:35:30
We have a special guest for this episode, and he makes the show even better!
We spend the first portion of this recording discussing the recently announced awards. Once you've listened to all of that - including the most excellent question nominations - it's time to vote on your favorites! Check out the voting form here.
After that, we SHOULD get to the schedule, but we're a week behind on that, so go to the Letters Page Patreon and vote on what episodes will start off 2019. So much voting! (The schedule for January 2019 will be announced in next week's episode.)
And then, after all of those things, we finally get to your questions with the help of our special guest! We start in on the questions at just after the 44 minute mark.
Only one episode left this year, folks! Join us next week for some holiday cheer!
Let's talk about all the heroes from the OblivAeon Mission Deck!
Run Time: 1:03:42
Only a few minutes of goofs and gags before we get to a brief overview! Then, just after the 4 minute mark, we're right on to your insightful and exhaustive questions!
The first question goes through ALL of the mission deck heroes, so that takes up the bulk of the episode. The question after that asks about the Be The Gate heroes, who cross over a little with the Mission Deck, but not entirely! Still, fair game.
We will be recording this month's Editor's Note live on Friday, December 14th, and we'll be going over your nominations for the Letters Page Awards then! If you want to be a part of that recording, check out our Patreon!
From morally grey to just straight-up evil - what could go wrong?!
Run Time: 1:21:27
After the usual goofing around at the beginning, in a shocking change of pace, we bring back the Overview! There, we do some setting explanation to help place what's going on here, both in the world - or Multiverse, rather - of Sentinel Comics and in the metaverse, as well. We also talk about both Rook Cities. Two? Yes, two. But more about one than the other.
Then, we get to your questions right after the 12 minute mark. And, as has been the case with some recent episodes, we let the story happen bit by bit in the answers to your questions! Good questions, everyone.
Right after the 1 hour and 2 minute mark, Christopher's voice changes to a much more gravelly version. Here's a peek behind the curtain: we lost about 10 minutes of audio from the original recording of this episode. Something weird happened and it was gone. Fortunately, we had very good notes, and as soon as we got back from PAX Unplugged, Christopher and Adam re-recorded that section, and we're actually way happier with the way it turned out this time. Honestly, if we could just re-record every episode 3-5 times before putting the audio live, they'd be even better... but that's ridiculous. Anyway! Christopher's voice was pretty wrecked from the convention, as per usual, but you only have to hear it sounding so rough until around the 1 hour and 13 minute mark.
Thanks for listening, everyone! As ever, check out our Patreon for even more stuff!
It's time for an episode about a pretty new team of villains from another era!
Run Time: 1:22:00
No overview today - it's straight to questions! No dilly-dallying, even! Right down to business!
Our first question is from the creator of the Sentinel Comics Wiki. Hats off to him - that wiki is useful to lots of folks, including us!
We go on after that letter with its many illuminating questions to more great questions from great question writers!
This week is PAX Unplugged, and much of GTG will be there, including Christopher, Trevor, and Maggie! If you're on the Letters Page Patreon, we've got an event going on Saturday evening: learn more here! We hope to see you there!
