Just about to throw this up myself lol.

I wonder if Steven was contacted or if they let that one lie since it was Steven's desire to leave originally due to work schedule load.

Hardly matters. I hope it is similar to a SSS in the sense that we do not see movement forward in the universe's timeline rather than an exploration of a past event.

Awesome announcements.
Follower only chat and the new streaming schedule is awesome.
Looking forward to the Crendor one-shot and the new show.
Might be the first live live show i skip though.

Why would that be, for curiosity's sake?

Pretty cool. Did it cross anyone else's mind that he might say RollPlay Original for the anniversary instead of Swan Song? Here's hoping for the five year.

I'm as excited to get to get more Swan Song as I am sad that Steven can't come back for it. Which is to say, very,

(freckled1der90) #7

He left to make more time for West Marches more than he did for work.

(banned) #9

Swan Song was the midnight hours were cutting into his sleep schedule and affecting his work.

West Marches...not so much it would seem.

(banned) #10

That was a side effect. His sleep was being affected by how late Swan Song ran.

Celebrate the anniversary of Rollplay Legacy on Rollplay Legacy's anniversary? Are you nuts?

Yeah I don't really get it either. It would seem just a move to appease the community after the cancellation and run a game that Adam is interested in returning to as well.

Remember to keep this civil. This is not a place to complain and throw out accusations or speak for Steven or JP.

They need to get TB in on that and call it the Cooptional Rollplay :itmejphappy:

(banned) #16

I still don't think TB is up for such things due to ongoing health issue treatments.

(moenoel_) #17

He does a weekly three hour podcast, so a four hour oneshot shouldn't be that big of a problem. But yeah, his health and scheduling in general may be a problem for that. Also, back in the Dark Heresy days, I think he said the only reason he even considered joyining in on the RP was because it was 40k, so yeah, probably not happening.

(banned) #18

And that was stated well in the beginning of his treatments (the being on the podcast thing), and Dark Heresy still did not return.

Regardless I fear we're getting too close to off topic so let's leave it there.

@itmeJP It's cool if you don't want to answer, I understand that completely. I'm sure a lot of us are curious however.

Did you ask Steven about being on the Live Show and it just not work out like Maids? Or was it more of a since Steven left Swan Song of his own volition in the past that you didn't feel it necessary to ask him back?

If the latter, why? Since it's only an 8 hour oneshot?

(MikeInHiFi) #20

I briefly thought that when he started to announce a live show on the anniversary.

I'm very excited about Rollplay Nebula Jazz! :itmejphappy:

I never liked swan song, Not into the sci-fi systems. More a Fantasy/DnD person. Also easier to understand for me since i understand swords and fireballs but not all the stuff in swansong

(banned) #22

I grew out of fantasy personally. I really enjoyed WM because I like weirder older Grimm style fantasy fiction. CoS has yet to really attach to me.

I think it's because cast buy in to the eastern themes is small to none, but Adam digs it really hard which is nice.
