Road Map for the Year

Hey everyone, Ivan here.

I've been experimenting with some things some of which I've asked for feedback on and some of which I've just been doing. I figured it was time to go ahead and lay out a post with some goals and such in it so that you guys will know what's coming, I'll have a schedule/timeline, and you can keep me on track etc. Most people/companies/armadas/etc. would do something like this in January, but this is TTP so it doesn't come until the end of Winter (aka February) or when the Anniversary Episode is out. Anyway let's dive in:

1. Creep Roundtables

  • It's that time again, The plan this time is to go in alphabetical order with one Roundtable an episode for the next three months. You can still send an email, leave a comment, send a PM or tell in-game to let me know if you want to be part of this. But keep in mind that once a Roundtable has been recorded that class is finished until next year. The Rough Schedule will be:
    • Blackarrows - Early March
    • Defilers - Late March
    • Reavers - Early April
    • Stalkers - Late April
    • Warleaders - Early May
    • Weavers - Late May
2. Blog Update
  • The Blog Update has two phases, both of which should be in effect at/by the start of March. The first is that I will go through our links, host pages, etc. and clean them up and get them up to date. The second phase is an expansion of activity for the Blog. This blog will finally see use as more than an Episode Archive. But rather than try for the CstM approach (aka a LOTRO blog) Through the Palantir as a blog will chronicle random gaming and other activity for your enjoyment (hopefully). I brought this up in Episode 39 and 40 and I have decided to go forward with it. Some Specifcs for the blog update are:
    • Create Browsing Categories to allow you to find what your looking for (Podcast Episodes, specific genre/game, etc.)
    • Update out of date links and pages
    • Beginning posting about more than just the podcast.
    • Get on Middle Earth Network See if I get Emails about Middle Earth Network and respond accordingly.


Episode 40: Through the Palantir Turns Three!

Welcome to our anniversary episode! To celebrate this occasion I have dragged Matthrim out of hiding and back in front of a microphone as we tackle a little bit of game news, discuss what we've done, TTP's past, present, and future; as well as plenty of other stuff. I must apologize for the poor audio quality from me, I sound like my mic is hooked up to a meat grinder and Matthrim didn't say a single word. So as in all things, blame Matthrim. Hopefully you'll still enjoy the show.

Episode 39: We Have Emails!

Welcome to another Episode of Through the Palantir. But catastrophy has struck! There's no main topic, nothing under game news, and even Ivan eventually runs out of things to say about himself. All this will add up to a short episode unless the title has something to say about it. Welcome to another episode of this crazy podcast.
