This will be my last blog post...

Yup.. that title is correct... this will be my last blog post gang...

Because the new site that hopefully should be up sometime this week will host the blog directly on it. If your heart skipped a beat, I apologize for the night late (or early morning?) troll. I just finished the intro I been putting off doing for a "newish" show called Two Player. Basically, me and Roamin had so much fun with the GRr Podcast magika specials that we said "Hey, lets just do more of this shit." Because it's so easy for the both of us to just play a game for a couple a hours, we already have months worth of podcasts.

In fact, if I was to stop and do nothing but put whats already uploaded and ready to be released, releasing one of these videos a day. Beaten Super Minecraft/Two Player, there would be silly video game movies to watch for months! I know a lot of you want the Unforgotten Realms more then anything and next week I should have an episode out for you guys assuming I get the website out this week which I am working my butt off to do. The first episode of me and Roamins "Two Player" show will be out later today once KillerKitten {soon to name change to Sugar on the forums} is done updating the site, it's honestly a lot of fun and we play a classic of all classics.

So as I mentioned on the soon to be Read Only forums as will have a new forums coming with the site again, I have a sort of "Community" project in the mix I'm gonna throw out there for those of you who read the blog. While animating some stuff for Unforgotten Realms a couple weeks back, I started watching the YogCast. Basically, these guys do a bunch of video game podcasts but gained a ton of popularity ever since there minecraft movies. Essentially they made a couple movies about them exploring minecraft and slowly turned it into this show where two guys who aren't roleplaying are in a roleplaying world. I absolutely loved it because it screams the Rob character and Unforgotten Realms to me.

While talking to Roamin about this, we somehow stumbled on the idea of playing Dungeons and Dragons in Minecraft. Like any big D&D fan who plays MMOs, me and Roamin were VERY EXCITED when 4.0 first came out and they started talking about this "Live" table to play with. Me and Roamin live as far away as we pretty much possibly can in North America, so this live table was huge for us. I remember even back then we were making plans to record our sessions of D&D for internet videos and this was back before the Unforgotten Realms reboots I believe. So when the light bulb of Minecraft+D&D came on, it came on really bright. I will be DMing the games and we won't be playing a "real" form of D&D to deal with balance issues, gameplay and the overall entertainment of it, but it will be in the spirit of it! Our players will be Roamin, Gaary, and the soon to be introduced Shay who will be our token girl in the D&D game, because I figured the only thing better then Roamin and Gaary is to give them someone to harass.

As this game will be built in minecraft, I'll need the help of the community to prebuild the world and dungeons. Will be having some "Build" days where I'll open up a server and ventrillo to those who sign up in advance and are interested in helping prepare the world for our three adventurers to explore. I'm super excited and it's going to be a lot of fun so when the new site comes out make sure you watch the NEW blog and NEW forums!

High five guys.

PS: The goal of the new site is to not only release something every single day of the week, but even moreso then that. Right now I'm getting to the point where we have too much stuff and I wanna put out some different videos every day if possible, because of this the current site design isn't really setup to showcase a bunch of videos in the small boxes really.
