Have Spellbook, Will Travel - Actual Play 1-1

Hello Listeners!  As mentioned in the last BTS episode, there will be a brief hiatus from the main HSWT storyline as we spend some time catching up on production.  While that is happening, however, we have some other treats for you, starting with a recorded Dungeons and Dragons 5E session starring James Introcaso and several cast members.  Please enjoy this actual play episode!

Have Spellbook, Will Travel - Behind the Scenes 16

Whoo hoo!  Story Arc 4 wrap up is here, and Rudy and James discuss the D&D adventure that inspired these airship-related mishaps.  They also have a conversation about one-shots, and some tips on how to play them (and what to play!).

Please note that the main story episodes will be taking a hiatus until January 18.  In the interim there will be some new types of content, including some Actual Play from the cast - hopefully you enjoy it as much as the main show.

Have Spellbook, Will Travel - Episode 4-4: Final Curtain

No New Show Today

Hey Lovely Listeners - 

Just in cased you missed it mentioned on the last BTS, there is no new episode today due to the Holiday.  May all our American listeners have a wonderful Thanksgiving, and may all our non-American listeners have a good, ya know... fourth week of November.

And if you're making a turkey, remember - if you ain't brining, your guest are gonna be whining.  Cause your turkey is probably gonna be mad dry.

Toodles,
Rudy and James

Have Spellbook, Will Travel - Behind the Scenes 14

Today's SUPERSIZED behind-the-scenes interview is with... RUDY BASSO ?! PLOT TWIIIIIIST.  Yes, we figured that it would probably be a smart idea to give some background info on ourselves rather than just our wonderful cast.  So take a listen and hear about quantity vs. quality writing, Rudy's accidental Lady Love, and maybe too much friend on friend back pat-tery.  Also there's a whole lotta gushing about Night's Black Agents.

Uh-oh!  It's an interrogation episode flying straight IN.  YOUR.  FACE.  KA-POW.

Are you okay from that ka-powing?  If so, then please take a listen and hear of harpies, kobold fingers, and casino beatdowns!  If not, then we recommend taking a rest and recovering then listening later.

Hey lovely listeners - 

Due to some silly scheduling issues on our part, we are going to have to delay the latest episode by a day.  Have no fear, however - it will be completed and released as soon as possible, with Thursday 11/10 being the absolute latest!

Have Spellbook, Will Travel - Behind the Scenes 13

Oh Boy!  Another wonderful behind-the-scenes interview with one of our most fantabulous actors, Andrew Timmes!  Listen to Andrew talk about jumping into the theater world as a "joke", the wildest and most interesting club you probably never heard of, and the differences between his version of Kai and the original D&D character played by Dan Keyser.
