A Conversation with Patrick Stuart, first course
++Back Deep Carbon Observatory (Remastered!) on Kickstarter++ https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/gawain/deep-carbon-observatory-remastered ++Patrick's talk on the Wapentake at Ignite Liverpool++ https://youtu.be/nr4KKZMpf6Q ++Silent Titans++ https://shop.swordfishislands.com/silent-titans/ ++The world is a spell++ I didn't explain this super well on air... of course more past is created if you wait a bit, since the time that you waited is now the past. What I meant to say is that Invisible Sun supposes that additional "past" is being added at the "beginning" of the past as well, or rather that beginning is being extended. So the earliest recorded event might be X, but if you wait a bit the history books have altered themselves and the earliest recorded event is now the previously nonexistent Y. ++Fear of a Black Dragon (DCO episode)++ https://pca.st/989i ++Arnold's "Goblin Punch" blog and time traveling dinosaurs++ https://goblinpunch.blogspot.com/2013/10/dinosaur-clerics-new-class.html ++Veins of the Earth, Fire on the Velvet Horizon, A Night at the Golden Duck++ Check the sidebar of Patrick's blog! https://falsemachine.blogspot.com/ ++The audio starts to overlap in the second half of the episode++ Yes it does, which there's no way to fix unfortunately. Anchor allows you to record a conference call which is awesome, but somehow my audio must have shifted out of sync with Patrick's by a few seconds, which is why you hear him reacting to things I say too early and me reacting to things he says too late. The audio of all parties in the call is combined into a single audio file automatically, which means I can't shift the timing. Alas! The price of convenience. ++Time travel in RPGs++ A delicate touch is best. Here's my favorite short blog post on the subject: https://fistsofcinderandstone.blogspot.com/2018/12/time-travel-chronomancy-and-hard.html ++Continuum RPG++ http://www.aetherco.com/continuum/ ++Still hungry?++ The conversation continues in our second course (the next episode!).
