On 13th April 2018, four strangers appeared in a misty clearing in the unwelcoming land of Barovia. Since then, every (okay, most) Friday we’ve had the pleasure of following their escapades as they try to escape the clutches of Baron Strahd Von Zarovich.
We’re celebrating our birthday in a few different ways:
The first few episodes of the show suffer from particularly low audio quality – we’ve always been just a bunch of pals playing together, and our lack of podcasting experience really shows in those first few episodes. We now recommend that new listeners begin the show with Episode 20, which is a good part of the plot to start with, and we’ve also recorded a new introduction for that episode to catch listeners up on who the characters are, and filling them in on the story so far.
Of course, listeners can always choose to stick with our growing pains, as those first few episodes also contain some fantastic moments, as the team tries to survive Barovia’s Death House!
If you’ve not yet seen it, along with last Friday’s show we also released a bonus Crit Faced episode, in which the team chat about their favourite moments in the adventure so far:
On Thursday 16th April, the Crit Faced Crew will be hosting an AMA (Ask Me(us?)Anything) over on Reddit Fantasy – come and join us, to chat about the show, and about our writing!
At the show’s beginning, we had recorded a special prequel episode in which our players explored their character’s lives BEFORE our adventure began. This episode was originally a bonus extra for people who joined our mailing list. However, as we never had the time to use it we are discontinuing the mailing list, and instead the prequel episode is now available on our main social media platforms. Come and join us on Facebook and Twitter to talk about the show, and to check out our early thoughts about our characters, and the worlds they come from!
We’d like to give a heartfelt thank you to everyone who has enjoyed the show so far, and an excited welcome to anyone checking us out for the first time. We’ve had a blast over the past few years, and can’t wait to see where this madcap voyage ends up…
