So, last time we were at a London Comic Con the Critical Role Podcast were guests and, man, they were a popular choice! People came from all over Britain and Europe to hear them talk – so many that people were being turned away from the event in droves.
It’s a great podcast and if you have been living in an equatorial rain forest for the last few years and haven’t heard of them here is a link to their site. A group of voice over actors meet to play Dungeons & Dragons and broadcast the result to a huge fan-base.
We are very into gaming in all its forms at Sloth central. The glittering state-of-the-art tree-house that is our Edinburgh office contains many a gaming sloth in it’s offices. There is even a Role-playing game created around one of our best-selling titles, Hopeless Maine. This can be ordered via the Hopeless Vendetta blog.
Over the course of the last few days one of the sloths who lives on the branch next to me has been running a Role-playing game.
We try to make this blog a resource for anyone wanting to break into comics and I came across something via my neighbour’s game I wanted to put on The Slog.
He showed me some guides for Games-masters that I was very Impressed by. Engine Publishing produce a range of quick, easy to read guides and essay collections for gamers on how to make better collaborative stories together.
They are also brilliant ‘How To Write’ guides for anyone starting out as a writer, as they draw on acting and screen-writing advice, techniques and ideas. I can thoroughly recommend their titles Unframed and Eureka as tools for a novice writer.
I’m off to grab a coffee now but will try to post again soonish. Say, in a few months perhaps.
Pura Vida Perezosos!
