Hello Adventurers! I just wanted to check in with everyone still subscribed to our feed, but not checking the website (because it’s not like we really had a website before this!). If you’ve already read the update from last week on the website, you can go ahead and skip to about 4 minutes in for the newest addition in this audio version.
The big news with this DM Chat is that www.adventuresinerylia.com now points to a fairly fucntioning wordpress site! I’m going to try and make at least 1 blog post a week over there, so make sure to check back at least once a week and see what’s going on. If you’d like to support the show, we are now live on Patreon! For $1 a month you can get access to our lost episode catalog, which is everything that was recorded using the Yeti. I plan to continue working on those recordings once we are back up and running and getting one added per month to the queue. You can find us at www.patreon.com/adventuresinerylia. We have writen up a script for the new podcast opening, Episode 0, and did a test recording with the new mic set up last weekend, which is put in at the end of this DM Chat so you guys can hear the sound difference. The last bit of news is an update on the Mieveht Intro Script. In it’s raw state, it is up over 6 pages now and I am part of the way into Episode 1.2. I’m hoping to finish the script either next weekend or the weekend after so we can begin editing it and get ready to record it once we are finished with the current campaign we are on. The plan is to be back up and running in the next 4-6 weeks, and we can’t wait to be back!
It’s been about a week since the big announcement, and there has been a lot going on in this week to try and make the change happen as quickly, and as smoothly as possible.
First of all, if you’re reading this, then you’ve noticed that the website has changed! Since we started Adventures in Erylia, we have been using the landing page provided to us by our media host, PodBean. The page served us well as an alternate way to find our episodes, and to have somewhere for adventuresinerylia.com to point to, but with this whole relaunch, we wanted a more feature complete, and cleaner looking website to send people to. So as of now, we are using WordPress as our website.
Secondly, our Patreon page is now live. The current catalog of Lost Episodes is already posted for our $1 tier, and Discord is set up for the most part for our $5 tier. I’m currently about half way done with the next Lost Episode and still plan to have it up by the end of the week.
The cast and I have been working on writing a new Episode 0 for the feed to introduce the podcast a little more completely than the current version does. We’ve got a script written up for it and actually got our recording gear all set up for the first time last night to do a couple runs through it. I’ll be able to use this short recording to get a taste of what things will be like editing with this new recording set up.
Two last things I want to mention. We’re about 4 pages of script into the narrative retelling of the first arc of the Mieveht Story. The exciting thing about this, is that the first few pages tell a part of the story that was never recorded. Tying into the next Lost Episode, which is the first recorded episode of the Erylian Epic, we have a huge session planned for next weekend. Everyone is off early enough that we will be able to have a 6+ hour long session, in comparison to our usual 4. Hopefully, this will get us close to wrapping up act 1 of the Epic and we will be ready to begin recording for the relaunch in the next month!
We’re all excited for this relaunch, and we hope you are too!
One the one hand, I’m sad to be posting this. But on the other, I am happy for what it means for the future of the show.
We’re going to be taking a break for a bit while I work on restructing the podcast. The important news from this is that we will be moving over to using wordpress as our main website address, we are scrapping the current episodes to get things out recorded on our new equipment sooner, and we are in the works of setting up a patreon with the option to spend $1 to get the archived content as it comes out.
A few months ago, a podcast that I am a huge fan of, The Glass Cannon Podcast, was holding a contest for some of their special bottlecaps. They wanted people to post pictures of their group, with Pathfinder books, and someone holding a d20. While we are a D&D fifth edition podcast, I actually cut my TTRPG teeth on Pathfinder and own quite a few of the books. The plush d20 was actually a gift from Chantalle to Caitlin and I’s son for Christmas.
I just now realized it is probably the only picture of the whole cast together so I decided to share it with you guys so you can put some names and faces together. I’m Damian, and I’m the DM, taking the picture. On the left is Christa in red and her boyfriend Chris. On the right is Chantalle in blue, and my fiancee Caitlin in the back.
I’m trying to remember to have us take more pictures, so hopefully you’ll see more of us in the future.
