Episode 34: Whitetree’s Legacy

After the excitement in the woods outside of Port Erris, the party finds rest for the night now joined by the lone survivor of the attempted ambush.  In Port Erris there were answers waiting for Thyme and the others in the halls of the God Doyma, and farther down the road was the Bastion of Souls...

Announcements: Hiatus (Hiati?) Past and Future

Hello, I have some announcements for you to cover the last month and more and talk about what's coming down the road.  For those of you who are listening it should be quick, for those that would prefer to read I have that for you too!

"First and foremost thank you all for tuning in to this little announcement.  I just wanted to take a quick chance to explain what all has been going on behind the scenes because there’s more than I feel can be properly covered in my usual introductory blurbs.  Don’t get too excited.  It’s nothing risqué or dramatic.  No inter-party conflict or anything like that.  Over the past couple months I’ve alluded a couple of times to some events coming up in the future.  Well, one of those events was that Andrea and I were moving to a new house. 

At the outset I had a solid plan.  A workable plan.  One that had a minimum of impact on our schedule and the podcast as a whole.  Of course, we all live in the real world and while I may have planned for a perfect transition from one home to another, where after a few days I’d be ready to face the world… that isn’t quite how it ultimately played out.  Don’t take that the wrong way, though.  Everything went well, we stayed with family for a while there, but we’re moved into our new house and settling in nicely.  It just through me for a loop and unfortunately Through the Balcony had to take a backseat for a little bit.

So that’s part one.

Part two is what comes next, and is ultimately behind part one in the first place.  My lovely wife and I are expecting another child in the near future meaning that one, we’ll need to come up with a character for her to go along with Jenkins, and two, we’re going to be in no place to play D&D for a little bit.  Now, while the last hiatus caught me off guard and what I’d thought might be a week or two delay expanded well beyond that, this is something I have a plan for.

Back when all of this started we had four sessions we recorded at the tail end of the first arc in Jarmaulk and the Akken dessert.  The first wasn’t ever even supposed to be a podcast episode, it was literally done because Dan and Tim were playing remotely and with me knowing Dan was going to be late I thought I’d just record it for him so he could hear what he missed.  What followed were three sessions where we actually started seriously contemplating what is now a reality where I had even less idea what I was doing than I do now.  They are rough and raw, but are in my opinion still great sessions.  It’s, sadly, not the whole arc but it should be a fun listen regardless and definitely touches on a few things that are still mentioned to this day.  So we’ll be releasing those for a couple of months while we adjust to a new little one under our new roof.  We’ll probably go to a three week release after that for a while and after that, only God knows.

What I do know is that I am loving being able to tell and share this story.  So however that plays out, that’s what I want to do.  So, that’s what’s been going on in our neck of the woods.  Lots going on, but al of it pretty good if a little bit crazy.  We will resume episodes on Monday and release them as we make them up until the break.  Thank you all for tuning in, and thank you for listening.  Now that we’re all on the same page I will leave you to enjoy your weekend."
