outtakes
Lysel was attacked and bitten by a giant venomous spider, now Leyton must collect dozens of venom sacs to make the antidote for the poison, or his sister will perish. Can he get them in time…

Afterward, Big and Rish talk about spiders, the sounds they might make, and creative outlets. Big talks about “The Thundercats” and Rish complains about special effects…again. Just count yourself lucky they don’t sing the theme to “Mister Belvedere.”

Special thanks Bryan Lincoln for producing today’s story, and to Angela Moore for lending her voice to today’s episode.

In a sequel to November’s “The Strange Affair of the Artisan’s Heart,” Popoca and the Countess are back, this time they are on the trail of a thief that has stolen a rare moth from the London Zoo…a rare, four foot moth. Sword fights, dirigibles, and electric velocipedes ensue. bloopers

Also, Big and Rish talk about the recent Oscars, Ameriquetzlan vocabulary, Monday Morning Quarterbacking, John Hughes, Pixar haters, and then Rish drones on and on about the Spider-man films. In fact, if you listen closely on a night just like this, you can still hear him out there, talking about Spider-man. Spooky.

Episode 60: Playable Character by Eric J. Juneau

Posted in Action, Adventure, Eric J. Juneau, Fantasy, Short Story on January 17, 2010 by dunesteef

If Rish survives this week, we present to you “Playable Character” by Eric Juneau.
bloopers
It’s not easy being a character in a computer role-playing game. You can rarely go where you want to, hang around your friends, wear the armor you’ve been eyeing. Worse is when your player wants you to run all over the kingdom and slay monsters, or worst of all, when high-level campers stand in the way of you and your player’s goal.

Also, Big and Rish talk a bit about World of Warcraft, but mostly they revisit everyone’s favorite topic: irrational fears. This time, they take a look at some listeners’ fears and have fun mockin–er, commiserating with them.

Special thanks to Bryan Lincoln for producing and editing today’s story, and to Liz Lincoln, John Lincoln, Bryan Lincoln, Buchis and Ghomus from the AIE guild on Earthen Ring, and Aeriah and Siek from the Imperfection guild on Lightninghoof for lending their voices to today’s episode.

Episode 56: Casts A Demon Shadow by Derek J. Goodman

Posted in Action, Adventure, Derek J. Goodman, Drama, Novelette, Western on December 17, 2009 by dunesteef

The lads are excited to present the first novelette on the Dunesteef. In the Old West town of Ogre Ridge, heavy-drinking, broken-hearted Cassie Grant finds herself in the middle of two powerful feuding families. Magical, necromancer families. Cassie won’t last for very long, unless she has help. Supernatural help.

Afterward, Big and Rish talk a little bit about story length and Westerns, and a lot about, well, an array of rambling topics. An embarrassing array.

Special thanks to Julie Hoverson for lending her voice to the story.

“Someone arrives in town, and discovers that everyone there is exactly the same.”

In this episode, we feature three different pieces on the above theme, by three different authors.

In “The Return,” Kevin Anderson interprets the subject in verse.

In “Scriptopia,” Michael A. Kechula tells of a visit to a strange place, where everyone is a writer, but Kevin would decidedly not be welcome.

In “Chemo: The Town of Golden Woods” by J.M. Perkins, an elite team of trained agents is sent into a little town, in search of the previous team that went in . . . and didn’t report back. bloopers
