Gen Con Bound!

Gen Con begins this week (I’m officially on vacation on Tuesday, WooHoo!) and we plan on doing short little 10-15 minute podcasts to talk about each day, Thursday-Sunday.

So check back daily starting late Thursday night and we’ll have something for ya to listen to. 🙂

iTunes Minor Issues

I have been informed of a minor issue with iTunes that may or may not be related to ID3 tags. But I have also heard that this issue could be a know issue that apple needs to fix with iTunes. I noticed episode 5 had the wrong track number in it. So I’m pushing that episode 5 back down to see if this corrects the issue.

So those of you who are iTunes listeners may see episode 5 come up again. You can ignore it, if you wish. There is nothing new to it, I’m just trying to correct some background settings.

The Dragonlance Canticle Episode 7

We’re back, Woohoo! In this episode we chat with Chris Pierson, author of numerous Dragonlance books including Spirit of the Wind, The Kingpriest Trilogy, and most recently the Taladas Chronicles.

Also in this episode Trampas and I talk about Dragons of the Highlord Skies, Leaves III, meeting up at Gen Con, and a special event related to the forthcoming Dragonlance movie that will occur at Gen Con 2007.

Also a big congratulations to the Dragonlance Nexus for it’s nomination for Best Fan Website in the ENnie Awards.

See you again after Gen Con!!!

Ain’t No Cure for Those Summer Time Blues

Hey all, I know it’s been quiet from the Canticle lately and things have slowed down a bit. Just wanted to let you know we’re still here, things have just been really super busy for some of us this summer.

We’re working on Episode #7 now and should be out soon. Following that GenCon is coming up and Episode #8 will be a discussion about our adventures there. So relax, curl up with a good book (*Cough* Dragons of the Highlord Skies *Cough*) and enjoy the summertime and we’ll be back on a 2 episodes/month schedule after GenCon.

Long Live the Lance!

The Dragonlance Canticle Episode 6

At last, the promised episode about the Heroes of the Lance…well sort of.

As we began the disscusion of – if we could move beyond the HotL, they really became more of a springboard for us to say how we could move forward. Take a listen.

We open the show with a couple announcements about Leaves III and my left ear. The first half is about the HotL the second half is how we feel it should be done. Yes, we are chock-full of opinions on this.

What do you folks think? Can or will we ever move on? If so, how do you see it happening? Let us know either by leaving a comment or joining us for discussion on the Dragonlance forums.

Oh, and by the way, there must have been something in the water that night, because I make a couple of really bad joke. My apologies…well, not really. Enjoy!

The Dragonlance Canticle Episode 4

This episode is a discussion on the recent announcement that Wizards of the Coast has chosen to not renew the Dragonlance RPG license with Margaret Weis Production. I know, I know, we mentioned in episode 3 that this would be about the Heroes of the Lance, but with this recent development we felt we needed to address that instead. We’ll come back to the Heroes in a later episode.

In this episode you’ll hear what this means for MWP and the fans. You’ll also here another part of Tal’s State of the Lance and Dragonalnce’s 5 year cycle. It put’s the recent events in perspective and shows that this is not the death knell for Dragonlance. We then move on and talk about we as fans can do to keep Dragonlance alive. This episode is focused on the gaming license but it’s chock full of history of Dragonlnace’s history as a product. Enjoy!

Long Live the Lance!
