Magic of Eyri 021-Silver Tongued

Wednesday, March 17th, 2010

Today’s episode: Steve and his friends escape the Hawk King’s wrath thanks to his blue heron amulet. His joy is short lived when he spots a column of smoke on the horizon, hinting at the destruction brought to Uth, the Last Human Village. Much to Steve’s annoyance, Istrio the blue heron mystic appears to check in with the boy.

In our last episode: The Hawk King burned Uth, the Last Human Village to the ground in his search for Steve.

Next Time on The Magic of Eyri (04.07.10): “Duck and Cover” – Steve and his friends arrive in Tal, the duck port town. NOTE: I’m kind of skipping a week because there would three episodes in March because of how the weeks line up. I decided to skip the 31st and release episode 22 on April 7th (thus sticking to the first and third Wednesday of the month schedule).

Ramblings:

Istrio is back, and boy does he have some harsh words for Steve.

This episode introduces one of my favorite characters–Gladius, the cranky talking silver swordfish. Gladius was a favorite of mine to write for when I wrote the original novel. There are a few hidden jokes in this episode, but the main one is Uncle Shameless’ line about Steve having a “butch name like Theodore or Gordon.” That refers to former Detroit Red Wings players, Ted Lindsay and Gordie Howe. Steve is of course named for another former Red Wing, Steve Yzerman. The joke about Steve’s mother wanting to name him Françoise is a bit of family trivia–that nearly happened to my dad.

Next Time on The Magic of Eyri (03.03.10): “Burn” – Fiach-Ra, the Hawk King, takes matters into his own hands when it comes to dealing with Steve and his friends.

Ramblings:

This is the first episode to feature some of my original “music.” I say “music” because it is more or less me hitting random keys on a synth keyboard until I found something that sounded neat.  I also recorded some guitar parts (but not everything you hear in this episode is my doing) and ran them through “amps” in GarageBand.  I had fun coming up with music and I’ll try to do it in the future, because some times you just want a crunchy power chord for a scene.

Today’s episode also features some great guest voice work by the mysterious Valeta.  She is very talented and I’m happy to have her on board the podcast and look forward to having her voice more characters in upcoming episodes.
