No new blades for 3 weeks?

I hope it hasn’t been cancelled! :frowning: No posts, or anything really in a while from any @Rollplay or itmeJP about it.

The show is not cancelled. JP has talked about it on stream quite a bit. There have been cast members travelling, tech issues, etc. Keep your eyes on the schedule. Hopefully the next episode will be on there soon.


Cool beans. I’ve missed a few of the live rollplay stuff recently, I just watch Blades and Court of Swords really. Thanks though!

Thank you for the info. I have been wondering what was going on. Its by far my favorite RP show. I just didn’t want to come across as a dick asking JP what was going on. I know there are problems that arise and it can be tough. Anyway, back to lurking.


yeah this is why i was against the show moving to sundays…its so much easier to schedule streamers on weekdays vs weekends. now its gonna be like all the other old shows in rollplay hell where you go months in between episodes


but nebula jazz is made up of people who dont do tons of cons. blades as zeke hostin, geoff commentatin, and wheat who has hand in lots of twitch stuff

I wonder if it could be moved off of weekend as others have said or at least do the 3 or 2 man episodes as was done before with zeke and anne. I think since it was moved to sundays over half the episodes have been cancelled or not scheduled. I know not all of these are travelling problems but most of them seem to be.

pls no

pls yes


The same thing was happening during the week, with the added curse of low viewership when live. Since moved to the weekends, yes the scheduling is still off because of life, but viewership has improved. So honestly, it’s probably best where it is.

So i’m not sure if this is the best thread for it, but as someone who has watched the various Rollplay shows since the original I must admit i am finding it a bit annoying that whenever these show breaks happens we almost never get any info until people start asking questions.

Ever since we got the official Rollplay twitter i was kinda hoping you guys would use that to do these kind of announcments since some of us can’t always watch @itmeJP “non show” streams to get this info.

All i’m asking for is a simple tweet like “Due to [BLANK], [SHOW] is on a short break”.

And just to make it clear, I have no issues with these breaks since everyone on the shows are busy people, and IRL stuff happens.

Since @Tahkai11 posted here maybe he/she can pass it along if none of the other people in charge see it.

@itmeJP , it looks like the natives are getting unreasonably restless again.

Yes, two months ago we did have a vocal portion of the community whining and crying because we went a month of no shows. And it was a month where we were told what was going on and why things weren’t happening as soon as things happened.

But because it seems a portion of the community has to be a paparazzi and know every little detail about why something isn’t happening, the message “a show was canceled because of schedule/life, will post when there’s an update” isn’t enough.

The show hasn’t been canceled yet and people have lives. It literally says in the News Announcement post that Blades got cancelled April 30th Because Geoff was in Dreamhack and anyone paying attention to twitter knows Zeke was traveling. When events settle down and everyone isn’t traveling all over for sponsors, charities, fun, etc, the show will pick up again. It just requires this thing called patience.

Y’all might not be kept up to date on the minutiae of things, but there is a News Announcement thread that everyone asked for, that is keeping us aware of when things are or are not going to happen.

Try keeping up with it instead of marking everything is read perhaps. And if you are keeping up with it and you’re still whining, try remembering you have issues with the government having this many tabs on you and think about how you’re making the cast feel by constantly wanting to know where the tiniest mole or freckle is.


@itmeJP and @staff , do y’all have to put up this every time it gets hard to schedule a show? Because I know from watching youtube vods and the classic mp3s that scheduling has always been a royal pain at best as it seems like trying to schedule monthly episodes was an issue and episodes that were only a few weeks or even the next week were something like when the stars aligned type occurrences. So if y’all have had to put up with this every single time then first, kudos to y’all for putting up with it and second, damn. Y’all got more patience than I do because I get annoyed just watching everyone else whine and complain.

I do try to post if a show has been cancelled.


And that is much appreciated! :itmejpgg: However I (and i’m probably not the only one) do tend to check twitter more often than the website, and i do think a short tweet would kill 90% of the “OMG shows been cancelled” stuff :itmejplol:

There was this only yesterday:

True but only as a response to people asking on the day. It just seems like so much of people speculating could be cut down with an announcement tweet. shrug

but if the show was never planned on the schedule and/or events tab on twitch, That means there was no show on that day to begin with and such not a show to be officially canceled. If a show is already planned and than it gets canceled its usually put into the schedule/tweet.


You got a point there :slight_smile: However it does seem like most people go “oh blades are on sundays” and then just tuned in on the day rather than checking the schedule. But the fact that it is not on the schedule does not help with the “omg is it cancelled?” questions that appear every time a show misses two episodes. :itmejplol: Which is why i suggested they be a bit more consistent on the official twitter with episode cancellations ect, rather than leave people to speculate.

maybe yes, but the shows are also supposed to be when they are planned, if they are not planned than there is no show. it might be shitty yes, and ofcourse it could use communication that there is no show but if the show was never planned than they can’t get cancelled either is what i was getting at.

edit; damn this is badly worded.
