Hey everyone! It's time to answer some questions.
Q: Rawb, when is the next campaign?
It's still very far out, but currently the next campaign is set for August 26th
. This coming month is very busy for us and the 26th was the earliest we could schedule another show. Originally we were going to prepare two shows back to back, but I generally want to avoid doing too much of this because then what happens in this show can't really affect the next, which is something I think most of us enjoy about the live campaigns!We came up with some really goofy ideas and so yet again we are trying a lot of new stuff because of the long delay. I don't want to hype it up too much, but it may end up being another really unique show. As is now our tradition with future shows, you'll know the date is confirmed for the following Saturday when the preview video comes out the Monday before the campaign.
Q: Rawb, where are all the cool new T-Shirts and Posters!
I know right! We have some cool new stuff we are working on including this awesome mermaid poster that should be coming out this month! We don't rush out products just to meet deadlines for shows because we try very hard to make sure anything we sell doesn't suck. We have a lot of T-Shirts in the store already and we know we want to make a few new ones this year, but we also want to experiment with some other fun stuff now that our merchandise partner is expanding their product range. We added a the new Women's Flowy Tank option to all our T-Shirt options this last month and we have some cool plans for a Phineas pillow and a hat that we might do this year, but only if we think it's a cool product. Last year, we added some mug options to some of our shirt campaigns and I was really disappointed with how they came out. So now we don't offer new products types until I have seen them myself which is why it took us so long for the first dragon poster to come out after the t-shirt.
Q: Rob what about that Nader animation thingie?
Yeah. It should be out next week.
I have been sitting on it since we knew the next campaign would be so far away as a way to have some URealms content in between these two shows. We are already in production of the second episode so you should be seeing it soon. For those who haven't heard, Nader's Unforgotten Tales are campaign retellings from the point of view of an elf named Nader Leomaris who is the brother to the king of all elves. His formal introduction,as well as the role he will play in this show will be more clear after we release this first episode... or less clear honestly. These animations are extremely expensive to make timewise, but I feel they will grow more and more important as the years go on and it becomes impossible to get caught up in the story. We have written these animations in a way for both new and old fans to enjoy, so even if you have watched all the campaigns on the show, you should love some of the overall context in these animations can now give on the canon of the universe. Nader's Unforgotten Tales takes the goofy improv show we have and focuses in on the serious aspects of the world and lore. The first episode is almost 20 minutes in length so look forward to it coming out later this month!
Some real life things have come up since I wrote this that has delayed progress on Naders Unforgotten Tales being released. There were some changes we wanted to do that I thought I had time to do, but am not sure now when it will be done as it can't get in the way of the next campaign!
Q: Rob what are you doing for your birthday on August 13th?
I'm gonna make some hotdogs and just relax for once! Come say hello while I quietly stream
