Hello Shocking Gasp fans! It's time for another news update, coming in just a teeeeeeny bit late (sorry!).
The year is winding down, but there's one more chance for you to meet us at a convention. The entire cast will be attending AcadeCon in Dayton, Ohio on November 9th. Scott the DM will be hosting two events named "Temple of the Lizardfolk" based on the Episode 3 & 4 dungeon. As of this writing, only the 4pm session has seats open, so act fast if you wanna play!
The convention road map is wide open for next year. If you're attending a Con and would like to see us there, let us know! We're totaly open to getting out more and meeting all you wonderful people! As of right now, chances are very high that we'll attend the following:
Patreon Completion Update
Patreon changed their fee schedule a few months back, and anyone who entered would be grandfathered in on the old (read: better) rates. So we made a Patron with a lone (read: minimum) $1 no reward tier. From the start, we told ourselves we wouldn't push a Patreon until we had fans asking for one. We had the account so we'd have the better deal, but it wouldn't be used until you, the fans, told us it was time.
Well, here we are a year in and we've had two fans go and join all on their own! And we've had a few more be very vocal in their intended support should we make one. So it looks like it's time to put it to use!
New tiers will be uploaded next month. Potential rewards include swag bags, bonus content episodes, access to our Discord server, and more! We've put a lot of thought and hard work into it and we hope you all enjoy what we have to offer. Keep your eyes and ears open in the next few weeks for more details!
We have an official monthly newsletter! if you're interested in receiving this, please visit our website and subscribe under the Contact section. The newsletter will contain all the same information we put in our monthly Shocking News episode with a little more detail. We'll also include a section with news from the industry to help you see more of what's going on outside of our little show.
Shocking Gasp will be releasing limited episodes during November and December. We'll use the time to work ahead and retool some of our background processes.
We're not going to blame it all on Jake's new baby, but it is 100% Jake's new baby's fault.
Just kidding. Holidays are a busy time for everyone, and we're not sure we'll have time to record, edit, and release on schedule. Plus, podcasting is hard and we just kinda want a break. Our plan is to release a few teasers for the bonus content you can expect from the Patreon, so we're not leaving you completely high and dry.
We hope you understand, and thank you in advance for your continued support. You truly are some of the best fans we could hope for. We love you all!
