My favorite band happened to go on my favorite Geek Podcast! That would be Recap had a talk with Little Geek Lost. Little Geek Lost has been kind enough to help Echoes From The Caverns do some voice casting in the past if you were not aware!
Either way if you are interested in hearing Recap talk about their new album and stuff, check this out.
That’s not the official title, of course, just taking some poetic license there!
I am sure that no by doubt you fully know that Shooter Jennings debut his album Countach in Shroud of the Avatar.
WHERE DID HE GO DURING THE MIDDLE OF THE EVENT? If you didn’t know, he vanished right during the midst of the party from the Bear Tavern. WHAAATTT???
Then later he shows up in a Tower in Vengeance… AND TO THIS DAY, NO ONE KNOWS WHERE HE WENT!! [pullquote]AND TO THIS DAY NO ONE KNOWS WHERE HE WENT!![/pullquote]
Well The New Britannia Theater Troupe knows, and Fourteen talented voice actors are going to come together and with the help of Avatars Radio you will find out!
The adventure will broadcast on Avatars Radio at 9:00 AM on Sunday 3 April, NBT. You can also join the listening party at the Bear Tavern in game as well! [pullquote]9:00 AM on Sunday 3 April, NBT[/pullquote]
Here is a quote from Asclepius of the NBTT himself that he just turned into me on a scroll.
The recent Shooter Jennings party for the launch of his album “Countach” was possibly the biggest thing to ever happen in game. But the question remains – why did Shooter disappear at the height of the party in the Bear Tavern? And why was he found much later in a tower in Vengeance? What happened to him between those times?
As a result of extensive research, the New Britannia Theater Troupe can bring you, for the first time, the real truth behind these events, and the dramatic, previously unknown secrets that threatened to rock the very foundations of New Britannia.
Fourteen of the community’s best voice actors have come together to create a compelling and dramatic tale of bravery and heroism in the face of overwhelming odds. They have poured their hearts and souls into this production, and I consider it to be one of the finest we have ever produced.
You are all invited to return to the Bear Tavern – where the adventure initially started – for a Listening Party. The adventure will be broadcast on Avatars Radio at 9:00 AM on Sunday 3 April, NBT. Join us for an ale (or two) and hear the adventure unfold as we share in the experience together via the Aether Vibration Amplifiers.
The Bear Tavern is in Beran’s Reach, north of Brittany, or just zone to Gabriel Nightshadow. See you there!
There is a forum thread with the details as well that you can also post a note in. Go over, post a note and put on it “Stile sent me”. Please? That way they know, I don’t just sit on my ass? *winks*
You most likely have heard about this from another source already as I am a bit late getting it out. It has been very busy over the holidays and I am getting back into a normal routine again.
Anyway if you haven’t heard I wanted to make sure it was not my fault! Richard Garriott will have a guest appearance on Shooter Jennings upcoming album “Countach” and is a tribute album for Giorgio Moroder.
From the editorial review on Amazon.com
“Countach” features guest appearances from modern folk songstress Brandi Carlile, Antichrist Superstar Marilyn Manson, country-rock pioneer Steve Young and even Lord British himself, computer game leviathan Richard Garriott.
I can tell you that this is immediately going on my Amazon.com wish list and I am picking it up with my Amazon.com points when I have enough.
Video Game Break has a podcast in which they had a chance to talk with Richard Garriott.
I got to finally sit down with Richard Garriott and talk Ultima 7, Ultima Online, and his new game Shroud of the Avatar. It was a bucketlist moment for me, and Ultima was a HUGE part of my video game upbringing as well as fostered my love for the RPG.
So, hopefully some of this isn’t to old as not to be of use.. man, when I start catching up on old news pieces, you guys are going to go “really.. that old Stile?”.. Meanwhile so that I am not of complete waste:
So this piece really caught my attention. Its over at Gamers Nexus and its focus is on Richard Garriott and Chris Roberts talking, space.. Why did that catch my attention? What a combo on that topic!. Fun and short read even if my musing wasn’t!
Umuri did something pretty cool. I really am not even going to try to explain this thing, you just need to check it out.
Ok, so I’ve been working on a functional almost fully self-crafted house decor entry, and now that it’s done for this release 16 hours positioning and 6k boards later, figured I’d run a contest.
So, hidden on this lot are a number of apples, I won’t say exactly how many, but first one to find them and post screenshots of them at each apply with /loc showing wins 100k gold. So you have to ask yourself, did you find them all? Or maybe you didn’t and your post will tip someone off to where their missing one is? Good luck! Since no one’s put an entry up yet, The following reward applies, for every apple you are missing, your reward is cut in half, and the remaining apples rewards are still open.
So whoever finds the final apple gets 50k, the second to last gets 25k, third to last gets 12.5k, etc
Ok, disregarding anything else, this is one catchy title!
Con Man: Quick … Take My Money!
Tracy Hickman is strongly supporting this project. It has some amazing people involved and it really looks awesome. I figured while not really SotA related it was a cool blurb that many might be interested in.
My love and best wishes to the Recap Band! In case you missed it, they are playing a live gig this weekend on Saturday at New York. You can catch the details on their upcoming concerts section of their kick ass web site: Recap – Electronic Rap Rock – Hudson Valley, NY.
I honestly was considering going to New York for this Show this weekend. 12 hour drive each way and having to be back to work on Monday and all.. But well.. 12 hour drive each way, have to be to work on Monday, and its my first day off work in 2 weeks tomorrow.. not this time!
Dan, Dom, Steven,
All three of you have shown me nothing but friendship and love since the first day we had a chance to interact with each other. You have given me your trust, many times, and that alone will always mean a lot to me.
Now.. Show them who can play! Dan. Bust out with that trumpet live man, It’ll bring the place down! Even Tull had the flute going!
Home is a State of Mind
Not just a fan, not just a friend, but someone who sees all the talent you guys have in MANY areas, and who knows you will achieve whatever you choose to. Truly admire your energy, your spirit, and your choice to live how you want. Your a fantastic role model to my child and the children of many others. BE WHO YOU WANNA BE!
The Mad Hermit never seems to stop putting out pieces of aid to the community! Need gold? He is going to show you how to be rich beyond your dreams and then you CHOOSE to live in a little hovel alone somewhere in the woods.. because your CRAZZZZYYYYY…
All Reporters Gathering! This is a thing! How cool is that? Winfield posted about this new occurrence taking place over in the Sota Forums. Heres a little snippet of what he has to say!
To discuss how news and information from inside New Britannia is reported and documented.
To compare ideas to help consolidate and prevent duplication of services.
To envision how information will last for decades for all to use.
To share knowledge about existing or planned services.
To educate each other on best methods for discovering, uncovering, reporting, and documenting information.
Now I know your saying.. “Stile, how soon are you getting in on this?”. To be honest, I am not. I think its fantastic, a great group and they have my support! However for me personally I have a dull plate of projects and activities that I am already trying to wrap up so I can maintain my core stuff and focus on my guild and new in game projects. Im not going to add new projects to my plate! Although I hope to maybe poke my head in from time to time as time allows.
However I think this is a fantastic opportunity to grow a great community within our big community. TWO THUMBS UP!
So were in R14 now your playing it, the graphics are looking good. Maybe some things still need some work. Well, compare it to where we where are R13 and where we are going by catching the R13 Post Mortum!
The Bear cavern starts a new community group called “The Beran League”
To one and all,
The community of The Bear Tavern has slowly but surely grown over its recent past, attracting visitors from all walks of life. Now well beyond the scope and scale of that originally intended, it has been decided that a different approach should be taken to support the community as a whole. As such, on the evening of the 3rd of February, the High Council of Beran’s Reach voted on and approved the formal creation of The Beran League, an organisation encompassing a range of Towns, Guilds and Businesses. This represents our first step in founding something bigger, a move which promises to deliver greater opportunities and events for those who wish to be involved. Our little community has begun to grow up.
This isn’t the only news. Alongside our current circle, our long-term friends within The Moongate Travellers together with their Player Town of Rifts End will be joining us. I would like to wish them a formal welcome, a matter that seems somewhat redundant since we know many of them well already! I look forward to go out into the world alongside the good folk of MGT470 on dungeon raids and event nights in the future.
So I have two things!! First, because its shorter. Kenneth mentions he did not know there was a New Britannia theater Troupe! Im sure many don’t, as even though its been talked about, a lot goes on and its hard to follow up with everything. So if you want to learn more about the Troupe, go here!
Secondly and finally, I am typing a post in a forum to someone, and thought “I really should share this as a blog”. Bottom line – Why do I think this event is so important?
Ok, its a dry run, yes. Its a test run, sure. It may not work as well as desired even with a little practice ahead of time on R11, etc.
But… its majorly historical. There’s a Theater stretch goal for the game. Its an EXTREMELY important feature of the game to both Starr and Richard.
This represents literally, the first group of people putting on the first event like this, to what one day in the game may be a major aspect of game play that takes place on a regular basis by many groups.
For that reason I want to do as much video recording, airing, etc as possible. Also it will take a lot to keep me away, as I want to say “I was at the first one!”.
