TGP Halloween Special 2020

For Halloween, the Gothic Podcast crew teamed up with our friend Elayne (@churroyeti on Twitch) to play a one-shot of Ten Candles, a spooky tabletop rpg by Steven Dewey where everyone dies in the end. This is the audio-only version cut a bit for presentation purposes. If you'd like to watch us (the Host, that is) mess up the rules and misunderstand what what's going on, check out the full video version over on YouTube at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WZk3Hu1sLP4. And if you think you'd like to play the game, head over to https://cavalrygames.com/ten-candles and pick up a copy!

C. Patrick as "The Host"

Sharon as "Helen"

Jesse as "Ryan"

Season One Retrospective

Our Cast looks back at Season One and reminisces ... amid technical difficulties. But never fear, we press on through the deep dark woods of audio troubles and explore such pressing questions as, "What WAS Chauncey's hat, actually?" and, "Will Sharon spill more of her beverages in Season Two?" and, "Did Patrick reeeeaaaallly have any idea at all what was going on?"

 

The Gothic Podcast is an actual-play audio drama made by four friends out of our cobbled together studios in Portland, OR. For the first season, we used the Monster of the Week rules to tell the stories of our errant characters.

 

You can find us on Podbean at Gothicpodcast.com and on all sorts of social media; please feel free to contact us on Twitter, Instagram, Tumblr, Facebook, or at our email at thegothicpodcast at gmail dot com -- we would LOVE to see some fan art. And check out our Patreon. Though we aren't very good about getting our episodes out early (we drive this bus pretty close to the edge of the cliff), we are looking to add some new Patron-only content soon, such as a Kids on Bikes campaign that we're calling canon adjacent, starring a young Grace Morrow and L.J. And if you just want to support us just because, well, we'll take that, too.

 

And tune in Halloween night, 2020 to our Twitch channel, https://twitch.tv/thegothicpodcast, at 6pm (PST) to watch Patrick, Sharon, Jesse, and guest Elayne (Churroyeti) play a (pre-recorded) one-shot of Stephen Dewey's "Ten Candles": a "roleplaying game of tragic horror." We'll be popping into the chat to interact and make fun of ourselves as we watch ourselves play.

 

Starring C. Patrick as Keeper and host, Sharon as Grace Moreau and Dr. Grace Morrow, Jesse as Lori and L.J,  and Nathan as Mr. Chauncey Candlewick and Jacob Candle

In the Season One finale of the Gothic Podcast, everything finally begins to come together in a veritable book of revelations.

The Gothic Podcast is an actual-play audio drama made by four friends out of our cobbled together studios in Portland, OR. For the first season, we're using the Monster of the Week rules to tell the stories of our errant characters in both a Gothic Then of crumbling castles and fog-shrouded moors as well as a Contemporary Now of spooky Midwestern locales.

Though we aren't very good about getting our episodes out early (we drive this bus pretty close to the edge of the cliff), we are looking to add some new Patron-only content soon: a Kids on Bikes campaign that we're calling "canon adjacent," starring a young Grace Morrow, L.J, and Haven Harrow. And if you want to support us just because, well, we'll take that, too.
