Part One of an interview where I talk with close friend Daniel McDeavitt about his experiences with imagination, gaming, narrative design, and playing dead rangers.
Join me as I talk role-playing, the power of story, and Lord of the Rings music you may not know about with my old friend, Dr. Scott Hippensteel, Director of Instrumental Music at Shepherd University.
Let’s take a look at this whole “Letters to My Uncle” project I discussed in Episode 1. What is it all about? Who is this “Uncle” and who is this main character? Remember, if you see me at GenCon come say hello!
GenCon, for me, is an amazing place and it’s coming up next week. In honor of this I’ve made it the focus for this episode. I go through a brief history to get a perspective of how far the convention has come and then tell two stories that occurred to me at GenCon. One is from my very first GenCon and the second occurred just a few years ago.
As teased last week, here is the announcement I’ve been waiting to reveal. I’m joining the ranks and launching my own ship into the great podcast sea!
I am incredibly excited about this and I hope you enjoy it. I have a lot of plans in place and this will be receiving all of my attention in the weeks and months to come.
Subscriptions will be working in the next few weeks and when they do it should be available on all the major directories, including Apple and Google podcasts, Spotify, Stitcher, IHeartRadio and Tunein/Alexa.
If you like this I encourage you to share on social media and spread the word. It will help a great deal. Feel free to leave a comment here, on the podcast page or on my email – firstname.lastname@example.org
Look for Episode 2 next Tuesday, July 23rd!
It’s been a little quiet around here lately. My apologies for that. My time away was necessitated by a change in my employment. The transition from old to new office space ended up taking many more “spoons” then I had planned. Then, the following two months were pretty hectic and tiring in the new job as I had transitioned during the busiest and, some would say, worst time to do so. However, they say still waters run deep. Although things were quiet here they were NOT quiet inside my head and with my thoughts about my goals for what I wanted to have happen here.
The time away gave me chance to think and re-assess a few things. I managed to begin putting some creative pieces together and those pieces were part of a project which, at one point, had been planned for this space . I just thought they would be further “down the road.” Suddenly, I realized that “further down the road” was actually much more possible then I had, at first, realized. The universe, always conspiring to prove me wrong in my hesitations, saw fit to gift me with some much needed equipment to confirm things. This sealed the deal and made me more excited, adding fuel to my scheming.
Long story short? Yes, I’ve been pretty busy over the last few months but I’ll be having an announcement next week. The blog will be here and I have every intention in moving forward with the random map, the occasional advice/commentary post, etc. If anything, this space will be getting a nice level up.
I’m excited to introduce the next phase on Tuesday evening, July 16th. It will be here and on Twitter. Thanks for coming along with me this far and I’m hoping that you will continue to join me in the next leg of the journey!
