Boredom begets invention! LARP Meme Photos!

So, I got bored in the early morning hours and came up with 4 Larp Meme photos to share. :-) They may only be funny if you know the Atlanta-based characters and players...but this is Our Island Georgia, so if you're watching and reading, then you probably do. :-p

NOLA Recap

This episode we go into great detail of the shenanigans that transpired at this year's Grand Masquerade. We also talk a little bit about the new WoD MMO that's coming out...god knows when, and the Vampire 20th Anniversary edition book released exclusively at NOLA. We were down a Kurt, but hopefully he'll be back next time.

In our chat we also had a special guest, Joe Schuster from the OWBN Hour of Power! Thanks for joining us, Joe!

Post NOLA show Tonight @ 9pm!

That's right, tonight at 9 pm will be our Post-NOLA show! Three of our four were there! Kurt, James, and Andrew were all there for the festivities. Kurt wont be joining us tonight, as he is embroiled in making himself better both physically and schollastically (and us big jerks are going on without him), but James and Andrew will be able to regale us with tales of the event!

Takeover Attempt

Kurt and Trey try to take over the show and get their righteous retribution.

Year of New and Old Players

This episode was produced by YOU, the viewers! Our Facebook poll results came back and people wanted to hear us yammer on about the Year of Fire (so far), how to involve new players into the game, and how to start over from scratch when you lose a big character.

We had a lot of fun filming this one, and hit our highest live viewership yet! The chat room was a big help to this one, and we felt very honored for all the participation over Facebook and in the chat. Thanks to everyone!

Too funny, must share!

Ok, so as we all know I am currently the Setite Coord. One of my staff, Seth Pierce, was bored and made a video. He put it on my staff list, but its too hilarious not to share.

Before I do, though, a few things; first, Seth's brain works differently from that of a normal human...in that everything he thinks is not based in reality but hilarious none the less. Second, he is my Warrior Subcoord, which means the biggest NPC in his stable is Thane Hyksos, the progenitor of the Warrior Setites and the dude that took Typhonic Beast back...Seth makes up all kinds of funny, not-actually-in-play stories for him to amuse my staff. Most of them make him sound like a Chuck Norris clone (Thane Hyksos' Typhonic Beast looks like Chuck Norris...), the best of which was the Emergency Thane Hyksos Maneuver. The ETHM was developed when a few people were whispering accusations of favoritism among Team Snake, and rather than get mad about it Seth made fun of it and really helped deflate the situation.

The ETHM involves Thane Hyksos jumping off off of his moon base, and hurtling towards the earth at blazing speeds using Celerity and Potence one-bajillion while the song in the video plays in the background (the one at the end, not the ominous music...cant tell you, wont be a funny!). Just before impact, Thane Hyksos grabs everyone that Seth is OOC friends with's PC and teleports them to the safety of his moon base just before impact, because he is moving SO fast. The impact leaves a huge crater, a la Kung Fu Hustle (if you dont know it, Google it!).

Without further ado...

A return to old ideas

Me and the fellas (and Anie) were talking, and we really like the idea of creating little mini segments or vignettes to post up on the blog page along with the webcast episodes, much like the one titled Tasty Frozen Dessert.

We already have a couple of ideas for these, so keep checking back every now and again to see if we've actually gotten off our asses and done them!

Athens, Baltimore, and Crazy Powers!

Hello! Thank you all for the massive turnout we had for this show! 35 viewers is a current record for us, so thanks to all who showed up and MAD props to Jason Ruth from the OWBN Hour of Power for supplying the Social Media bump to us as well!

This Episode we had two events back-to-back almost, and we discussed both of them.

Athens Gala

The first was the Athens Gala, the first event after the Year of Fire metaplot was passed. It was a little sketchy there for a while, but the event staff pulled it off and made it a ridiculous amount of fun for all involved and handled themselves with style.

Glitter and Gloom

The second event was the Glitter and Gloom event in Baltimore which was also a raving success. The Tribunal of Adrian Florent and the Global Ventrue Directorate meeting were the big highlights of this event and were everything that everyone was hoping they would be; politics, intrigue, and scandal!

The last thing we talked about was what the two who went to the Baltimore event came face-to-face with; Georgia runs some house rules VERY differently than the rest of the org, so we discuss the differences in flavor.

Show announcement! 4-5-2011

We're coming back to the webcast world tonight at 7:45 PM! We will be discussing the Athens Gala and the Glitter and Gloom Event from Baltimore, as well as fallout from each and other topics we can come up with!

Our cast will be the Core Four: Andrew, James, Kurt, and as always your devoted producer...Me!

"It's not what you want, its the consumer..."

So, boys and girls, we can yammer on for hours on video about what we think is awesome and interesting...but it occurs to us that eventually this will not be as entertaining to all as it would be to us (we totally love to hear ourselves talk)!

With this in mind, we need YOUR help formatting our show. Tell us what you want us to discuss, your thoughts and feelings on the topics previously discussed or shows previously recorded, or if you'd like to give us suggestions for recurring segments (White Wolf trivia asked to the cast, penalty of a shot in the ass with an airsoft/bb gun if they lose kinda thing).

We don't do the show for us, we do it to entertain you, so let us know what entertains you! You can do so in many ways: Reply to this blog post, email it to us at ourislandgeorgia@gmail.com, put it on our Facebook wall (http://www.facebook.com/pages/Our-Island-Georgia/129850883736399), or tweet it at us @ourislandga!

Adrian Florent

This episode we talked about the emergence of new chronicles in Georgia, and the pros and cons. We are still our own island in OWbN, not many games near us, but we have more nation-states on our island now I suppose.

Next, Adrian Florent and the upcoming Baltimore event took up the rest of our discussion time, and man did we get elbow deep into that one! It spiralled off into directions we didn't even think of in our show prep, but we still had fun doing it.
