Hey Folks. It’s been a while since I’ve had a chance to write an update. Chris gave me this terrible cold and I was dead for seven days. Then I awoke and found there was Star Wars in the world and to complete the holiday miracle, it didn’t suck. So with that wondrous news on our door step lets take a look at what’s been going on with Misdirected Mark Productions.
It looks like Chris and Phil are mailing it in at the end of the month, it is the holiday season after all, with a Star Wars The Force Awakens view like episode. They geeked in an outward direction with Bob and the Gril Friday herself Jessie. Chris told me the episode is full of spoilers. He also told me to go see the movie if you haven’t. I did. It was pretty darn good.

On Down with D&D Chris and Shawn get positively fungal and groove on the grove. That’s Neverlight Grove which is chapter five of Out of the Abyss. There’s a Zuggtmoy sighting that has all the Lovecraft feels you could hope for and Myconid culture abounds. The pair also talk about that old black magic, which is the topic of the most recent Unearthed Arcana, and cover the new stuff in D&D.

The pair also wanted me to let you know there’s now a G+ community just for Down with D&D and if they get to 100 members by January 1st they’ll give away a free adventure to everyone in the community. That’s some awfully nice holiday cheer they’re spreading. You can get there and join up by clicking on the following link.

On episode 186 of the Misdirected Mark Podcast the boys brought in one of the four horseman of the gaming apocalypse. I’m pretty sure he’s what killed me and made this late. Regardless pestilence is Steve Helt and he joins the boys to talk about going from gamer to game maker and his path while Phil and Chris tell their tale. After that they chatted about Star Wars Memories in the EDSMD and finished up talking about some podcasts.

On the TKVTeam podcast Karol was at Disney World and Tim dropped a lovely filler show. It was part book reading and experimental audio from one of the current cannon Star Wars novels. Tim’s elocution is quite good. He then chats a little about the November NPDs, they were shockingly positive, and how there are too many games hitting the market to reasonably keep up with.

Chris also dropped a post about She’s a Super Geek since he and Phil are the current group of players on the show right now for the sorta holiday special. They played Heroine by Josh Jordan with Senda and Emily but instead of just giving the link Chris complied a list of fourty fact facts that Emily Tweeted about Senda. It was pretty funny. You can check those out and find a link to the show with the following link.

On Geekin Out Chris and Jessie got together to talk mid season finales. The pair chatted about Agents of SHIELD, Flash, and Arrow. There were some pretty epic moments but I’m more of a Dr. Who guy. Hey Jessie, Chris, when are you gonna talk some Dr. Who. The Season already ended and the Christmas special is about to happen. Call your self Geekin out and you’re not even talking Who, what kinda geeks are you?

Well that was a lot to catch up on. On a personal note I’d like to say Happy Holidays to everyone out there from everyone at Misdirected Mark Productions and I’ll talk to you next week if I’m not dead again. I hear pestilence might stop by for Christmas. I told him it was ok to just send a card but you never know with horsemen of the apocalypse. They can be unpredictable at time.
Keyboard Drop. I’m Out.
