Next Time on The Magic of Eyri (03.17.10): “Silver Tongued” – Steve and his friends meet a cranky, talking weapon with abandonment issues.

Ramblings:

Because of the way the weeks run in March, I should technically do three episodes for this month. Well, I ain’t gonna.  I want to stick to the “first and third” Wednesday release schedule, so there will not be an episode on March 31st, but rather April 7th.

This episode introduces the fiery minions of the Hawk King, the Pyrix. They are giant, skeletal birds covered in fire. Scary.

I came up with the name by combining “pyr” (Greek for fire) and “strix” – a bird creature from Roman mythology (although in the original myth, the strix are  vampires).  The strix are said to be like owls, but I envision the Pyrix to have a skeleton similar to an eagle or a hawk.

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.
