Host Migration Complete; Site Migration to Follow

March 13, 2010 at 11:19 AM (GURPS, podcast, Roleplaying, RPG) (, , , )

Morning to everyone,

So, I’ve managed to move the podcasts to the new host, A Small Orange, and everything seems to be going great.  As you can see, I’ve reduced the number of podcasts down quite a bit and eliminated the OGG stream completely.  The old host was providing MUCH more diskspace, but had serious lag times and was constantly over taxed.  As such, I made the trade off to stick with a smaller host with better latency.

That being said, this now also allows us to move from WordPress.com to Outerheaven.ca, my personal site.  Outerheaven.ca will become a nice hub for much of our work, and help keep it centralized.  Please update all your bookmarks toCritical Failure: The GURPS Podcast.

Changes to come: To meet the type of hosting available, the number of available podcasts on the RSS feed will be reduced; perhaps to simply the 5 most recent. This will not mean all the old podcasts will be unavailable, they will simply be moved to another storage solution. Watch for their return in the coming weeks.

Podcast releases will now be once every two weeks. Since I was doing the bulk of the work, it got to be really tiring to have a twice a week release. This will not only free up time, it’ll allow me to create a proper intro to the podcast, and to clean up dead air. Potentially, the new season of Critical Failure could sound almost professional (ha!).

CptCylde will be starting a new game; a nice and simple “The Matrix” setting. This will be a nice, light introduction for a new gamer, and should be starting quite soon.

“What happened to the finale of the Ayn Rand/Pseudo Objectivist/Space Setting game YOU were running?”

Well, that can be explained in one short statement: Moegreeb can’t find his MP3 player. He’s currently in the process of moving across the city, and has misplaced ti somewhere in his many boxes. Eventually we’ll find them and put them up; though based upon how poorly I was running that game, Im sure no one will miss them 😉

We look forward to serving a new season of listeners very shortly, and we can’t wait to show off our new digs once they finally start to look complete!

The Long Overdue Update!

January 26, 2010 at 8:37 PM (GURPS, podcast, Roleplaying, RPG) (, , , , , , , )

Evening all!

Yes it’s been almost 3 months since the Critical Failure crew have made any new postings or even podcasts, and we apologize greatly.  We know some of you were listening to our antics for some time and we feel terrible for leaving you out in the cold!  Fear not, the crew will post the remaining 3 episodes of the Space campain (that sad sad fumbling oddity), and will start a brand new season of adventure!

This time we will be running a single longer term game; a dark drawven fantasy.  To ease our time constraints, we’ll be moving back on the release schedual to twice a month; ensuring a sucessful and satisfying run.

Mostly, we were distracted by Magic: The Gathering (we are geeks afterall), and simply became a little burnt out.  However, check back for more updates and new features!

Coming Soon: The Critical Failure Source Material Wiki, get all the data, settings, NPCs and other goodies from our games.  Run your own!  And (hopefully) play them better than we could 😉

Keep rolling those dice!

Made a small typo which ZenJedi caught for us. The direct links to the files will now work (this didn’t affect the podcast feeds, just the blog posts); sorry about that, enjoy!

Now available; Podcast #31!

Combat with an unexpected guest in Ms. Gault’s tomb leads to some interesting tactics used by our heroes. However, since Moegreeb used his Android phone to record this adventure, the quality suffers. A synopsis will be posted tomorrow to help those who had a hard time hearing.

As always, our podcasts are presented in OGG format!
