Audio of Ep 10 – Making a Joint Post – Part 2 (53m)

So life, youtube, pasta monsters and slight depression held up this podcast.  And it’s not a new one either, but the second half of (the audio only) Making a Joint Post, which was initially over 3 hours long on youtube.

A reminder again that this is a very conversational podcast, it’s what happens when me and Kai can get together for a real time JP with an out of character means of communicating and poking fun at each other 😛

If you want to see the original uncut youtube and/or read the finished joint post then click on Episode 10.

Ep 8 – Creating and writing aliens (1hr 15m)

Today I (Sarah) am joined by Warr (again) and Leigh, both players from USS Sentinel.  Our new stalker put forward the topic idea:  Species/racial diversity on sims and how to write aliens without forgetting they’re /aliens/ and not just Anglo-descended Terrans.  I’m not sure we stuck to topic but we at least gave it a good try 🙂

Topics discussed include:

  • Aliens we’ve written and are currently writing *
  • How to create a character that is an alien
  • Remember they are an alien when you are writing them
  • Aliens need love too!
  • Aliens are popular in the books ** – creating original species
  • Summary of creating an alien character
