Magic of Eyri 019-Neo Geo

Wednesday, February 17th, 2010

Today’s episode: A battered and bruised Delu returns to the Hawk King and tells of Zeroth’s betrayal and Steve’s escape. After consulting a vulture mystic, the Hawk King determines that Steve’s next stop must be a visit to the Oracle of Uth, the Last Human Village.  Steve does indeed meet with the Oracle, Geo, and learns of the next part of his quest–find a way to Dragons Well and search for the Sword of Zaa.

In our last episode: Our Heroes finally reached Uth, the Last Human Village.

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.

Next Time on The Magic of Eyri (01.20.10): “Fishy Business” Our heroes continue on their way to Uth, the Last Human Village.  Along the way, Steve gets an interesting weapon–a living creature called a swordfish.

Ramblings: For those trying to get an idea as to who Zeroth’s magical pack works, the best comparison I can think of is a TARDIS from Doctor Who: bigger on the inside than it is on the outside.  The inside of Zeroth’s pack has the same space as a large room, and objects (and persons) inside do experience some disorientation while as Zeroth moves around (similar to sea-sickness).  Zeroth removes items by thinking of them as he pulls his hand out.  To help remember what he is carrying, Zeroth keeps a ledger book with an ongoing list of what’s inside.
