[PODCAST] D&D 5e Actual Play: Gran Terra Adventures 46

January 30, 2017 | Posted by John Bates

Welcome back to Gran Terra Adventures!

This week our group continues to try to push their way through the Warrens; a massive, sprawling, briarpatch that hides within it an ever shifting dungeon filled with accumulated treasure, traps, and beasts. Normally I’d have some form of informative dissertation or witty repartee to go with this announcement, but Mondays are my busiest days of the week. Oh, I know – I can talk about that.

We do a lot of work here at Final Show Films, a lot of which falls onto my shoulders. We produce content every day of the week – meaning, something is being created every day even if nothing necessarily gets published every day. We also happen to publish content almost every day, but that’s a separate issue. On Monday, we have a stream that goes up in the morning typically – the other co-founder of Final Show Films streams Magic The Gathering Online in the early morning on our twitch channel – then I edit and upload Gran Terra Adventures. After that, I’ve got to write this very column you’re seeing before you, another one for our Vampire game whose replay goes up Sunday evenings / Monday mornings on YouTube, and our Weekly Update that goes on the website blog and Patreon blog.

Then, after all of that, four of us record the Natch 20 that goes up tomorrow and play whatever the next game we’re to review is. Or, if we’ve fallen behind, we play the first game then review it, and try to figure out when we’re going to play the next game. And that’s all in addition to my day job, which has me working from home as an I.T. Admin performing triage on technical problems from a variety of clientele. On top of that, I’m also planning out the next episode of Gran Terra Adventures and working on countless little side projects. And, if the YouTube replays are going up Monday morning instead of Sunday evening, photoshopping title cards.

And that’s just my Monday.

That being said, please enjoy the fruits of my labor.
