The Herald • Bonus :: Rumors of Country
The Herald is a bonus podcast. A supplement. A treat. For fun. It is the gossip from the world of The Friar and The Thief, from our play-by-email RPG of intrigue called Thegns, where members of the Fyrd hoist their colors, invoke the names of their ancestors, and cement their legacy. Credits: Written and produced by Michael Schofield Performed by Jeremy Roman Music by Will Sarvino and Tabletop Audio (see usage statements). My patreon is split with the performers and players and any profit is invested in sound effects and voice actors, so I couldn't do this without the support of the Fyrd: our thegn Trei Brundrett, and spear-throwers: Rebekah Monson, Laura Spears, Andy Priestner, Joshua Simpson, and Kevin Wilson. You can join the Fyrd for free and help me make more stories about the Aendhrin and the legacy of Caledoran at patreon.com/michaelschofield.
