A peak behind the screen at what is going on with the Adventures in Erylia cast. Short segments that are mostly Damian talking solo about progress and projects going on related to the podcast itself, though occasionally one or more of the cast members will join him to give some insight into their own characters and thoughts.
For this first episode of Behind the Screen, Caitlin sits down with me and we talk about the show relaunch, the meet up we arranged for it and meeting up with the guys from Dump Stat Charisma. We also tease some upcoming bits of the story that has already been recorded and is being edited, including teasing a future combat episode. We wrap things up with a quick look inside Las’s head on how she feels about things so far.

First off, I have decided to rebrand the DM Chat. Going forward, DM Chat will now be Behind The Screen. I chose to do this for a few reasons. The idea of this being a DM Chat doesn’t really fit the topic. There’s no back and for chat going on, and nothing I talk about is related to DM’ing. The DM Chat has always been a behind the scenes look at the Adventures in Erylia podcast for me to share news and announcements. So I have chosen to move to the play on words, Behind The Screen. I also made this change because I would like to be able to use DM Chat in the future for something that actually fits that name. There are no plans for this currently, but I want the option available.
My next bit of news is that we are now officially wrapped up on the campaign we had been playing. We are taking a weekend off to give me time to prep for the relaunch with Arc 2 of the Mieveht Story. We are planning to record our first episodes for that on the weekends of September 9th and 16th. This should give me time to edit in time for the big reveal.
The biggest piece of news for this whole hiatus is finally here. We have a date for the relaunch. We will be clearing the feed once again for our relaunch on September 30th, also known as International Podcast Day. Once I realized that the timelines would match up, I just had to push for us to be able to launch during the world wide celebration of podcasts. With the schedule we have set right now, we are planning to relaunch with, our new intro, the Mieveht night watch, and 2-3 episodes of the new arc.
If you missed it, check out my review and write up for D&D Beyond.
This is a pretty short update because there hasn’t been a lot that has changed since the last update. Currently, we are looking at a relaunch date towards the end of September due to current scheduling, and having to learn how to edit an episode with the new recording style. Some changes have been made about how we will handle the recap of the first arc of the Mieveht Story. The recorded episodes are available on our Patreon for only $1 if you want to listen to the actual game play and get the full story, otherwise there will be a short episode that introduces the characters and gives only the important events on the first arc. We just finished up the first arc of the Erylian Epic, so we are currently in full relaunch mode to get the show ready to come back, new and improved. We have also joined up on Instagram. We will be trying to work on taking more pictures during our sessions to post on there, especially any particuarly funny shenanigans. Lastly, I am looking for some feedback on blog topics to write about over at adventuresinerylia.com. You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to tell me if you’d like me to write about my thoughts on D&D Beyond, my first renaissance faire experience, the first wave alpha launch of DungeonFog, or my World Builder’s Journey.
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!
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.
