We wanted to give an update that wasn't 140 characters regarding RollPlay: Blades:
We've been trying to schedule the next Blades episode now for almost a month, and at this point we feel like saying this is starting to sound like an empty promise. We’ve been trying to be more open with the community this past year, and you deserve full transparency for your support. Unfortunately, the only thing we can say is that some of the cast have been dealing with personal and family issues that prevent them from prioritizing and participating in the show.
As it stands, no episodes of Blades can be scheduled for the month of August. We want to give the show it's end, but at this point, we are not sure when it will happen. With TwitchCon in October, Wheat's schedule will start to pick up momentum again, and as we get deeper into convention season, the rest of the casts will as well.
We originally wanted to feature Blades as one of the next live shows, but because of these issues we aren't able to commit to a date to host it. That said, we’ve already scheduled a live show for September, which we’ll be announcing soon (along with some much happier news).
We sincerely apologize to the community. We know we're letting you guys down with this, and despite many of the cast trying to rearrange schedules and make things work, sometimes life throws curve balls that prevent us from doing what we set out to do. We’ve always tried to be consistent with the show and this year we’ve been nothing but. It will be a priority when we start casting our next longterm shows to request participation on a more consistent basis.
Finally, we appreciate your continued support. As we mentioned earlier, we'll have a bunch of news very soon: new announcements for the Patreon, a fleshed-out calendar of events to fill in the gaps with Adam’s vacation during the month of August, and three dates to finish out our four live shows this year.
If you have any questions we’ll do our best to answer them in the comments below. Thanks again and see you on our next show.
