Greetings Adventurers,Next Thursday and Friday, Brandon Boon and I will be in Budapest recording the choir and orchestra, so tonight we'd like to share something special with you. If you're listening to this, then odds are, that you enjoy hearing the voices of Soren Arkwright, Iaus Innskeep, Father Westpike, Flygia, and Rowena, and while I'm DESPERATELY working to bring you new episodes, I wanted to share a hidden treasure-trove with you tonight - the story that is literally how we all met started Dark Dice. It's called - The White Vault, a full-cast horror audio drama podcast written by Kaitlin Statz, the voice of Sister Cavernsfall, with sound design by yours truly... The White Vault's main story is five seasons long, and I'm bringing it to your attention now because we are about to launch our FINAL season next month in October, and members of our Patreon team that month, at any pledge level, are going to be mailed an exclusive rocker patch. So if you were going to decide to start The White Vault and happen to really love it, now would be that time, and you would still have a few weeks to make the decision.But what's it about? Your favorite voices, mentioned earlier, are a research team that's stuck in a small outpost in the Arctic... trapped in a blizzard in one of the most remote places on earth, they discover that they are not alone, and that something terrible is lurking just beneath the ice...You're about to hear our first episode: Fristed, and if you enjoy it you can hear more by subscribing to The White Vault wherever you listen to podcasts, or you can hear it, and all of our shows, ad free by subscribing to our patreon. Well, I'll get back working on Dark Dice, but in the meantime please enjoy The White Vault and remember that TRAVEL IS NOT ADVISED.This is a Fool and Scholar Production.You can also check out our other shows like The White Vault, Vast Horizon, and Liberty!Free Transcripts are also available: https://www.patreon.com/posts/dark-dice-22460850  See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

We have worked on Dark Dice more this month than in the previous 6 months combined, but it's all prep work for the rest of Seasons 2+. Rather than release a filler episode, we are holding off to release something substantial in October, or early November. We are a free release show, lovingly made as our hobby and passion project. Thank you for your patience with us.Watch our footage from our orchestra & choir recordings in Budapest: www.Instagram.com/DarkDicepodWe also took photos of the trip: https://www.patreon.com/posts/our-adventures-56711791  See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

Greetings adventurers,You are here because you enjoy the stories that we make... and... while we're currently working very hard to bring the next installment of Dark Dice, we thought you might enjoy hearing our first TTRPG, Liberty: Vigilance. Join Peter Joseph Lewis, the voice of Soren Arkwright, and Kaitlin Statz, the voice of Sister Cavernsfall, as they work with Sean Daniel Francis, Caitlin Buckley, Daniel Throison, and Ashly Burch - the voice of Aloy in Horizon Zero Dawn - to uncover a terrible conspiracy surrounding their brainwashed home. I was also the Game Master, but I had a bit of a mental insecurity about my own voice, so instead of hearing me, you'll hear one of my all time favorite voice actors WAYNE JUNE reading my parts, in addition to a cast of over 30 voice actors taking the roles of the NPC's. These are the voices of Duke Nukem, The Walking Dead, Space Ghost, and so many more, with the same sound designer, me, and an already-complete story told over 13 chapters. You've made it this far, so get ready... for Liberty: Vigilance!Find the rest on this feed:https://play.acast.com/s/the-liberty-podcast/  See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
