So far I'm loving it. I've started to listen to more and more live plays lately, and Hinterlands of Elandria is close to the top of the list.

What I enjoy most is hearing you talk about the game before/after on the non-AP and how it all comes full circle. For example, in episode 207 you talked about random/flexible encounters and how you used it in the game. And when you talked about it, I knew exactly what you were referencing.

My only complaint (and I use that word loosely), is that each episode is an entire session. That makes each episode pretty long, time-wise. I prefer multiple shorter episodes over fewer longer ones. But since live play isn't your main focus, I can understand that you just want to get the episodes out for us, and I appreciate that you're taking the extra time. Like I said, minor quibble.

Keep up the good works, man!

Thanks Christopher,

It actually wouldn't be that hard to split the sessions up. That's what I did on the previous campaign I did an AP for, I split each session up into 45-60 minute parts. The main reasons I'm not doing that is that my RSS feed is limited to 100 episodes, and I don't want the AP dominating the feed. Also, each session has a rhythm, and dividing them up messes with that a bit.

I really hope people find the Behind the Screen commentary helpful. I have plans for more to do, but decided to hold off on producing more until I get some questions & feedback on the videos, so I know what people want me to talk about.

I'm with you man.  I've just limited myself to listening (or watching on YouTube) for 45-60 minutes at a time.  :)
It's nice to have the whole session laid out if you have a long commute or significant downtime.
