The Dungeon Mistress, Part Three
The Night Of A Thousand Hours: The Mermaid Incident
I’m glad to see Galahad again. I have a lot of sympathy for young people who don’t understand what you have to do in order to get kisses. The only thing that ever worked for me, admittedly the sample size is not large, was not caring so Goddamned much. People can… smell it. And they don’t like the smell. I’m not saying you can’t care, obviously you do. But you have to know at some level that not getting this particular kiss at this particular time won’t cause the universe to split in the middle and demons to come out.
The other trick was to already be in a relationship, for some reason. Does wonders for the confidence. Of course, that scenario is also fraught. Good fraught? I don’t know. The scheduling was a nightmare.
There aren’t a lot of notes for the fight in The Mermaid. The rule is that any damage the baby would take is taken by the person holding her, but I never wrote it down. People had to pass the child hand to hand to keep from being cut down, which was the intention. There should be more on my innovative “leave no notes” note taking method in the next post.
The DLC Kickstarter had a backer level where, if you backed at that level, we would send you a print of every strip there was a podcast for in that season. That was an idea we had. And some people took us up on it, which we appreciated. Several vats of toner later:
Let’s look closer.
That is one of the more bonkers offers I’ve seen on Kickstarter, and they’re finally REAL. The same Kickstarter was also responsible for Kris Straub‘s excellent animification of the podcast. Once these are out, there’s just one more animation from Kris and one more episode of Family Lunch. But the podcast is back for good.
We’ve since moved things like Early Access to Podcasts over to Club PA, which you might have seen, along with early access to comics and way more stuff than I could possibly explain here.
