What's this? Something unexpected?!
No, not really. We mentioned it at the end of last week's episode: I was at Gen Con last week for meetings and such, but GTG wasn't there as a company, so no Gen Con Live this year. Hopefully next year!
Oh, and I guess there's a letters section? I didn't know anything about this in advance. Well, we'll just see what happens.
Join us next week (or this Friday if you're a Letters Page Patreon supporter) for a regular-style-but-a-week-late Editor's Note, in which we'll also unveil the rest of the schedule for October AND November! Exciting! Spoooooky!
Run Time: 1:17:44
There is less history to this character than many, but that doesn't stop us! If anything, we're excited to build him out! Especially with all the great folks that have given to much to The Adhesivist. Not sure what I'm talking about here? Listen and find out!
At the end of the episode, we talk about how the schedule is about to get weird: rather than the regularly scheduled Editor's Note #48, we'll have a interlude-type-thing, just for fun. Then, the NEXT week will be the Editor's Note, followed by Episode #189, though now off by a week. Which is OK! Everything will be fine! The Patreon supporters are already hard at work, voting for the episodes they want to hear in October AND November! If you're on the Letters Page Patreon, go vote now! And, if you're not a Patreon supporter, you can be, and immediately get access to that voting! What are you waiting for? Get in there!
We'll catch you next time!
The life of a man who has touched the lives of many.
Run Time: 1:22:54
Adam and I are excited to finally work through this limited series! It's got a lot of creative folks on it, and it's fun for us to work with an ensemble creative cast. We hope you enjoy listening in!
After about 44 minutes of story telling, we get into your questions! On a variety of topics! Not so much this episode, but that's not a huge deal.
Join us next week for a Creative Process episode we're referring to as "A Sticky Subject" ...it's all about Adhesivist!
The kids are alright! Or are they?
Run Time: 1:27:25
What sort of mess are these two going to get themselves into? And how will they get out of it? You'll just have to listen and find out!
Thank you all for supporting our ENNIES Awards nominations with your votes! We really appreciate it!
Join us next time for a Writers' Room about an issue of Engine Block Blues!
This one has both Dave Chalker AND Jennifer Closson!
Run Time: 1:36:05
Then, we talk about Dave's family fun sharktacular cards and robots game, Get Bit! Now on Kickstarter! Go check it out!
Then, we finally talk about the upcoming schedule:
And then, we go read your letters! In the questions section, we do have some spoilers for a couple adventures. Trevor does a magical thing with my voice just after the 28 minute mark to indicate the timestamp of when you should skip ahead to avoid spoilers! What?! Trevor can make me say whatever he wants now? Is any of this podcast even real?!?!? Am I real? Heady stuff, folks.
Finally, you get to see the Soothsayer himself, and on a comic cover, at that!
Run Time: 1:30:54
So, we do some goofs, but then the story came together... so quickly? Whoops? It's OK — we spend extra time in the question section, as a result!
A very important thing happened last week while we were recording this episode! We here at Greater Than Games were nominated for several ENNIES! Learn more in this blog post I made yesterday. Two big things: this podcast was one of the nominations, so this is now an Ennie Award Nominated podcast! Can we win an Ennie? That's up to YOU! Voting runs Wednesday, August 18th through the 27th! The second thing: the Sentinel Comics RPG got a bunch of nominations, so that's what the upcoming Bullpen will be about, which we're recording live this coming Friday! Come join us!
Greetings from the distant past!
Run Time: 1:33:34
What ancient words you hear now... can this hoary old record still hope to have any relevance in this new world of today?
Well, let's see! After some goofs (or are they seriouses?!), we go into making up villains for our favorite gun-toting cyclops! (I mean, first we do on-topic goofs, because, how could we not?)
After about an hour of villain creation, we take your questions! What do we do with them? Nothing responsible!
Join us next time for a team-up Writers' Room between your favorite misty magician and your also favorite grumpy arcane academic!
La Comodora and Chrono-Ranger visit the Extremeverse! Or is it the Xtremeverse?
Run Time: 1:36:42
Adam's got house problems, but that's not going to stop us from getting EXTREME! But first! Some spelling disputes.
Then, we tell a whole set of stories! More than we expected! We bounce between a few different issues. All over the top. We hope you enjoy them.
And then the questions ALSO get XTREME! Trevor does a great job with the episode, as usual.
Join us next week for a Creative Process episode about Expatriette Foes! However, we're recording that episode the same day this episode comes out, in the evening, so if you don't have letters in within the first few hours after this episode is posted, then instead get us letters about the next episode after that: Writers' Room: NightMist & Soothsayer Carmichael Team-Up! Woo!
Biomancer is back, but with a more explained plan than ever before! Still not THAT much explanation, though. It's still Biomancer.
Run Time: 1:29:54
We're excited to bring you another Biomancer story. He's very much a "sometimes food", but we enjoy it when it comes up.
We do some goofs, figure out where/when in the history of Sentinel Comics this issue lands, and tell the various parts of this story, all of which takes just over half an hour! We're getting pretty good at this.
Then, we get into a ton of mostly-Biomancer focused questions. Go figure that such an enigmatic figure would raise so many questions.
Join us next week for a Disparation Writers' Room all about La Comodora in the Extremeverse! Get your questions in now!
Let's get into SCRPG questions!
Run Time: 1:36:29
Christopher and Adam are joined by Dave Chalker and Chris Burton! They answer So Many Questions about the Sentinel Comics RPG and more!
