We have two new servings of entertainment-like-news-product today! One is a new podcast from Studio Foglio, with a guest spot from some of the wonderful people from Pork Filled Productions, a Seattle-based theater company! A while back, Pork Filled charmed the local Steampunk community with Maggie Lee’s play: The Clockwork Professor. Now they’re gearing up for her next one: The Tumbleweed Zephyr. We’re very much looking forward to it!
And if you haven’t had enough of us–there’s a new Aether Brigade video up on the YouTubes featuring Phil, Cheyenne and Kaja (that’s me!) being interviewed by some illustrious members of the Brigade. They gave us whiskey, so I don’t really remember much about that one, but I do remember that it was fun. The title of their interview show is “Awful Intercourse…” but I’m reasonably sure it’s safe for work…maybe? (Not everything they do is, be warned…) We met the Aether Brigade last month at Doctor Mondo’s Dangerworks Conclave, and were privileged to catch one of their evening comedy shows–and even participate a little. Such shenanigans!
We’re heading into the last day of Killer Robot Games’ KickStarter for the Girl Genius/Gunnerkrigg Court game Legendary Showdown, Machines and Magic! Above I’ve posted yet another picture of the Moxana fob that is one of the rewards, because I can’t get enough of it. There are several other rewards as well, including the wonderful battle magnet set featuring GG and Gunnerkrigg characters. Please support the campaign if you want one of these great rewards!
It’s Sunday here at the Conclave, and we’re here in the dealer’s room. It’s been a lot of fun! The radio play was fun. This new one has so many characters that we had to pull most of the Friday night audience into the show. Thank goodness for the Aether Brigade, who showed up to read a bunch of parts for us. The Aether Brigade is the local time-traveling comedy troupe, and their show last night was a huge success. They even let me do something. (heh heh heh.)
Cheyenne was here, too, and he spent a lot of the time running a Savage Worlds campaign set in the Girl Genius world. Apparently it was a lot of fun, three people have stopped by to say they loved it. I do know that the materials he’d written up were really fun to read.
James Ernest is also here, demoing a whole bunch of his games. We had a whole pile of his Pairs decks here at the con, so he signed a bunch of those. Now he’s leaving for the GAMA trade show in Las Vegas. Visit him if you’ll be there!
And now, our Q&A session is due to start in about twenty minutes. Are you here at the conclave? Come and ask us questions!
