Classic French Jorune

I don't think it is the source of skyrealms, but I love French painters. Who knows of a flying mountain before Magritte? I know of the Land of Green Ginger, but ...

Hey. Exposure.

How nice. A couple of months ago I was asked to participate in a video podcast with Steven Devaney (editor of the next big move for Jorune) and the show host, Matt Finch. Took us a while to get our schedules to mesh, but we finally succeeded. I was told the show would be ready in about three weeks, but it's barely been two and ... here it is.

It was a lot of fun, even if I found like someone was squeezing my trid-nodes in the first few minutes (maybe I need to do these awake).  But Steve and Matt were fun to do this kind of nostalgic run with.

I feel okay about it. Maybe someone will get interested in Jorune.

It is still worth the exploration.

A Boost

Stephen Devaney and I were asked by a the host to participate in a video blog for a YouTube channel. We've been dancing, trying to get all three of us in line for a recording session. Tonight, everything came together and we had the chance.

It was talk of things Jorune, with a particular focus on aliens, the art of gaming, and all of the incredible people who came together to create the original game, including the art, the iterations of the editions, including the computer game. We spoke about the fanzines and a new breath into the old Jorune body for the current generation of gamers - a D20 version of the world for gamers.

Most of this will be familiar to readers of this blog, but if you've wanted to expose your friends to Jorune, this may be the way to do it. Who knows. It may mean Jorune will get a chance to find a wider audience.

I'll post the details as soon as we're told the blog is ready to post on it's YouTube channel.
