What is up, GamerNation?
GM Chris, here, erstwhile host of the Order 66 Podcast. I know many of our old-school listeners are on these boards, and a slew of new listeners tuned in to our recent episodes talking about Edge of the Empire with Jay Little, and our live-play sessions. For those who've not heard, yet, the Order 66 Podcast (running strong for over 4 and a half years, now) will be transitioning its format in the coming weeks. We've been priviledged to devote our energy to the Saga Edition RPG since our inception - but we will be officially transitioning to the Fantasy Flight SW RPG. Our prior episodes will be archived to a separate podcast feed, and we'll be starting the current feed over, with a brand new "Episode 1" some time in November. And we have an AMAZING episode 1 planned for you all (details to follow…). But I want to kick it off RIGHT!
So… I just HAPPEN to have gotten my hands on a mint-condition (with sticker sheet) copy of the Fantasy Flight Games published Beta book for Edge of the Empire. And I'm really feeling the urge to give it away.
So we're going to have a little "contest". Long-time listeners to the Order 66 Podcast are no-doubt aware of our listener bumpers: fan liners sent in, telling us "why they never listen to the Order 66 Podcast". The long-standing inside joke is that, despite our subscriber numbers, "no one ever listens". When we're fortunate enough to get a developer or celebrity on the show, they sound off with "I'm so-and-so, and I never listen to the Order 66 Podcast." But the best ones take this formula and add to it, ad-libbing, and adding humor before and after. "I'm so-and-so, and I never listen to the Order 66 Podcast, because [insert awesomesauce here]…", etc.
So I want YOU to send in some bumpers! Get creative, GamerNation, and you will be rewarded! Please email all submissions to GMChris@d20radio.com, in the format of an MP3 or WAV file. This contest will last until November 15.
The BEST one (as determined by GM Dave's and my own sense of whimsy) will be rewarded. I will ship to the winner the aforementioned copy of the beta book and sticker sheet (and if you want… we'll even sign it). Sadly, I'm not the wealthiest man in the world, and since I'm paying out of my own pocket, I can only afford to ship this within the U.S. But if you ARE an international listener - don't let that stop you from joining in the fun and giving us a bumper of your own!
Now go! Go and make some funny! And stay tuned for more announcements about the "new" Order 66 Podcast.
Peace, Love, and Good Gaming,
