State of The Tavern - 2019 is Going to be Amazing :)
There is so much in motion for 2019 for all things Tavern related. I'm going to spill some beans below after I fall on the sword and explain why things have fallen behind here at The Tavern as 2018 winds down - family responsibilities and a fairly full plate otherwise. Interviews, podcasts, doc appointments, physical therapy, some serious uncle duties, family "Uber" - it all means less time for other things on my plate - like keeping OSR Christmas up to date, catching up on emails and all of the other fun stuff. Hopefully starting tomorrow I get to play catch-up and get ahead of the ball going into 2019. And yes, OSR Christmas will extend into 2019.
What's coming up in 2019?
Here, on the blog side of things, we should (hopefully) be transitioning to more of a community driven blog. Yes, I'll still be blogging daily, but the hope is to invite others to post under The Tavern's general banner too, while also giving them full control over their blogs. The Tavern wouldn't only be hosting my thoughts but that of others. More on that as we get closer (and I figure out exactly how to accomplish such).
On the podcast side, we have 45 Designers & Makers that are "on the grid" to be interviewed over at The Tavern Chat Podcast and that number is growing almost on a daily basis. 219 daily episodes and going strong.
How about the Tenkar's Tavern Discord Server? 2019 is going to be huge. In addition to the weekly Frog Talk and Tavern Chat hangouts, the Sunday morning Breakfast Club will be recording their episodes and sharing it as a weekly podcast. Can't make Sunday mornings because of sleep / church / family responsibilities? Not a worry - we'll have you covered. The RPG Breakfast Club has been likened to the various panels you might see (or listen to) at conventions - but weekly.
Need more scheduled programming? The Dungeon Show will be kicking off on Monday evenings in January. It will be an interview show featuring live guests. In February we should see the kicking off of RPG Coast to Coast. It will have a similar format to the RPG Breakfast Club but on Thursday evenings. More details as we get closer.
Are you a Designer and/or Maker of RPGs? Our "secret" Networking Club is available for you on the Tenkar's Tavern Discord Server. Just PM Tenkar or Pexx for more information and to get the proper access.
There's more in the works, but this is what is slated for early 2019...
