Episode 47 – Gaming the Headlines

Happy 8 years everyone!

Holy cow, how did we ever make it this far? Will we be around for the 9th? We know it’s not consistent. We don’t post an episode every week, every other week, or even every month as we had originally intended. Thank you for your continuous listening over the years. This episode, we take a suggestion from David H. and scoured the internet for headlines (original dates of headlines didn’t really matter.) and turn them into game plot ideas. Trust me the hilarity ensues in this episode. Check out our discussion and send us any feedback you may have:

This episode was recorded on 8/13/2018 using Mumble and edited in Audacity. We used Levelator to level and normalize the audio before editing. This show has been minimally edited to remove a few gaps of silence and fix some quality issues here and there. He have some issues with Henry’s mic popping and all audio was recorded into a single track rather than each cast member getting their own track. It was an oversight, which makes this hard to edit. In light of that, here is a very unedited/unpolished episode.

Don’t forget to check out our 1d4cast Actual Play Episodes in iTunes, they are on a separate feed. Look for V20 – Session 5 (the finale and still in editing stages, had to start over due to losing the project files) and other APs to come. We are set to record some World Wide Wrestling this Saturday.

The Background music is Plastic Submarine, courtesy of The Grammar Club. Visit their Patreon page for this song and more!

Thank you for listening! We hope you enjoy this episode.

7th Year Anniversary & Halloween Special AP – Shadow of the Demon Lord

This was supposed to be August 2017’s episode, however between personal things and crazy work hours for James, it wasn’t recorded until September. Also due to crazy work issues, James hasn’t been able to edit it until now. There were some issues with Katie dropping and reconnecting to Mumble, but hopefully the post editing helped lessen the effects of that. So, without further ado, we finally present an episode to commemorate a Happy 7th Anniversary of Podcasting to us and and a Happy Halloween to you! This episode will be in both the normal feed and the AP feed. We hope you enjoy!

Episode 34 – All of the Conventions

“Back once again for the renegade master, d4 damager, power to the people!” – Wildchild – Renegade Master (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eJR_dX8i0ww)

In this episode, we are missing John (Yet again, maybe forever?), but Paul is now part of the main cast. So that is exciting! Also we have 1d4Con’s two best non-staff supporters joining us: Marian and David. We recorded with Google Hangouts “On Air”. The sound quality is again just okay, but it is the easiest way to record everyone. I used Auphonic.com to level the audio again before cleaning up the long pauses. Otherwise this episode is unedited.

[BIG ANNOUNCEMENT]:

We are switching webhosts and with all of the other and blogs and podcasts on dvd20.org either stalled or faded, we are letting it expire. Sometime soon dvd20.org will be gone and in the ashes, 1d4cast will live on as 1d4cast.org and probably continue to look familiar. 1d4con.com will continue to exist as well, but will be getting a facelift.

As for a Podcast family, I have talked with Erik From Metagamers Anonymous about joining their network, Prismatic Tsunami and he is welcoming us in!

We talk a lot about various convention experiences while asking Marian some GenCon-related questions, read an email from a listener, and talk about TsunamiCon’s Kickstarter.

The episode’s main topic is about RPG Conventions. We define what conventions are. We also discuss what their importance to the community is and categorize/compare different types of conventions. Several of us give Con Reports to for some of the conventions we have been to as an attendee or staff.

We hope that you enjoy the show. Look forward to some giveaways coming soon!
