Hello Listeners!  As mentioned in the last BTS episode, there will be a brief hiatus from the main HSWT storyline as we spend some time catching up on production.  While that is happening, however, we have some other treats for you, starting with a recorded Dungeons and Dragons 5E session starring James Introcaso and several cast members.  Please enjoy this actual play episode!

If you’ve been following my podcast on The Tome Show Network, The Round Table, then odds are you already know some pieces of the news I’m going to share. Rudy Basso and I have started a new gaming podcast network called Don’t Split the Podcast Network. Look for the launch in January 2017.

Leaving The Tome Show

In order to pursue this new venture, something had to give. Rudy and I will no longer host any podcasts on The Tome Show. Our departure from the network is a very amicable one. I consider Jeff Greiner, owner and creator of The Tome Show, a great human being and friend. He gave me the opportunity to create a new podcast on his network with a huge built-in subscriber base he had grown over years. This is not to be overlooked or taken for granted. Jeff is a positive force in the industry. He doesn’t shy away from tough subjects and celebrates all things games with a genuine love for fun. Rudy and I do not leave the network lightly. We give Jeff and the entire Tome Show crew our thanks, our love, and our high-fives as we exit. (And just because we won’t be hosting any shows doesn’t mean we won’t be back to visit and give our two cents on one of their podcasts!)

While Rudy’s podcast, D&D V&G is wrapping up, the ones I hosted will still be on the network. The host of Gamer to Gamer is currently uncertain, but I know Jeff has some plans in the works, including possibly hosting the monthly podcast himself!

If you don’t already know, then I’m happy as a kobold in a cave to tell you that Topher Kohan will be taking over the hosting duties of The Round Table. Topher and I have been friends for years and no one is more tapped into what’s happening in the world of Dungeons and Dragons than he. Topher has written for CNN’s Geek Out! Blog, got an exclusive look at fifth edition before the public playtest, and served as the South East Regional Coordinator for the D&D Adventurers League. We are cohosting two podcasts together before I go, both of which have already been recorded. I can honestly say that Topher is far more qualified for the job of hosting The Round Table than I ever was. In addition to being a D&D expert, Topher is a great friend, amazing host, and a gamer that you should be ecstatic to spend hours listening to. I know I am.

The Future: Don’t Split the Podcast Network

I’m leaving The Tome Show, but I’ll be starting right up with a new podcast. The overlap is so seamless, you won’t miss my dolcet tones at all. On January 2, 2017 I’ll cohost my final Round Table and the first full episode of my new show, Table Top Babble, will premiere. The first one is a doozy too. It’s a big, fat, juicy interview with none other than Mike Mearls, one of the lead designers of fifth edition D&D. I was so excited to sit down with Mike and pick his brain about everything from upcoming Unearthed Arcana to the D&D movie. Table Top Babble will have a new episode each week that features advice, reviews, interviews, and more from industry experts and panelists about all your favorite RPGs. You can start subscribing if you’re on iTunes or Stitcher and listen to a quick episode 0. Here’s the RSS feed. Google Play coming soon!

Of course, my new show isn’t the only new one on the network. Have Spellbook, Will Travel will be brought under the Don’t Split the Podcast umbrella. If you haven’t been listening to the scripted comedy podcast based on our D&D games, now is a perfect time to catch up. The story is really heating up and turning into something special. Our voice actors are talented, the editing is superb, and if you like me, I do some writing and acting on it. This is truly a brilliant podcast from the mind of Rudy Basso.

Speaking of my good buddy, Rudy and his brother Alex will be launching a new video game podcast in 2017 called Game O’Clock. Game O’Clock is both retrospective and modern examination of video games. Every month, the lifelong gamers and brothers focus on a specific genre and spend a week each looking at its history, highlights/lowlights, their personal favorites within it, and the game they wish someone would make. They’ll always be joined by a knowledgable guest and friend to round out the discussion and bring a unique perspective.

This is the start of something special and exciting that’s been in the works for a long time. I’m excited to share it with you and there is at least one more podcast to reveal in the coming week!

Whoo hoo!  Story Arc 4 wrap up is here, and Rudy and James discuss the D&D adventure that inspired these airship-related mishaps.  They also have a conversation about one-shots, and some tips on how to play them (and what to play!).

Please note that the main story episodes will be taking a hiatus until January 18.  In the interim there will be some new types of content, including some Actual Play from the cast – hopefully you enjoy it as much as the main show.

With the mystery of who did it solved, our heroes move to catch the murderer and save the Duchess!  Will they succeed?  Will they fail, AGAIN?  Is it inappropriate to put two spaces after punctuation when writing in a non-scholarly setting?  Most of these questions are answered in this exciting conclusion to Have Spellbook, Will Travel Arc 4!

Uh-oh!  It’s an interrogation episode flying straight IN.  YOUR.  FACE.  KA-POW.

Are you okay from that ka-powing?  If so, then please take a listen and hear of harpies, kobold fingers, and casino beatdowns!  If not, then we recommend taking a rest and recovering then listening later.

Today’s SUPERSIZED behind-the-scenes interview is with… RUDY BASSO ?! PLOT TWIIIIIIST.  Yes, we figured that it would probably be a smart idea to give some background info on ourselves rather than just our wonderful cast.  So take a listen and hear about quantity vs. quality writing, Rudy’s accidental Lady Love, and maybe too much friend on friend back pat-tery.  Also there’s a whole lotta gushing about Night’s Black Agents.
