ES Spotlight - Episode 20 - [Manguy7157]

Welcome welcome welcome! Welcome back ladies and gents! For episode 20 I decided to have someone that roleplays an ethnic bosmer. By ethnic I mean someone whose had experience primarily roleplaying bosmer from Valenwood. I don't really know much about the bosmer as a race and I realized that I've only ever interviewed one person that's had a bosmer on this show. So I sought to rectify that and broaden my horizons on this race in Elder Scrolls. Our guest tonight roleplays 4 distinct bosmer and we have a good conversation about the bosmer and his RP experiences. Ladies and gentlemen, we have Manguy7157 with us tonight!

ES Spotlight - Episode 19 - [Sabriel7]

After two months of nothingness, I think it's safe to say that it's good to be back ladies and gents! While I admit I did want to do something different once again, I realized it was probably best that I return to form and interview an RP from ESO. The reason being is that it has been awhile and I can't stray too much from the original focus of the podcast. Yet at the same time, I still had to do something different. So I looked around and found someone who I felt did things juuuuust a little bit differently. One of the great things about this podcast is that I get to different moralities that different characters possess. However with the exception of 2 people, I realize I never interviewed someone who played an "evil" character. Unlike the aforementioned 2, I realized I never interviewed anyone that played an evil character as their main. So I found someone, we got to talking, and she graciously agreed to join me for today's episode. I had a nice time listening to her, and I hope you will too. Folks we have @Sabriel7 joining us tonight!

ES Spotlight - Episode 18 [Zorkonov of Imperial Knowledge]

Well hello there ladies and gentlemen! It's that time again. Yes, it is new-episode-time! In this episode I decided to do things juuuust a little bit different. I think we can all agree that as roleplayers, lore is quite important to us. From learning about how Mundus was created to the sacking of Saarthal, it helps us shape our decisions in character creation and in roleplaying within ESO itself. After all, lore gives us context and we need context if we are to make IC/OOC decisions within ESO roleplay. Thus, I decided to interview Zorkonov, creator of the Imperial Knowledge channel here on YouTube. I first started watching him when I was getting into Elder Scrolls roleplay myself, and his lore videos helped me to understand a lot of material. Zork works hard to comb through the lore and create content that delivers digestible chunks for people consume. He's quite dedicated to his work and it certainly comes across in the conversation we have. We talk about Elder Scrolls lore, YouTube, and his work. So while it isn't directly roleplay related this time around, I still hope that you guys enjoy this episode nevertheless folks! ...even if we do spend a lot of time rambling...

ES Spotlight - Episode 17 [Morriel]

What's this? A new episode? You bet your sweet bippy it is! Ladies and gents its Your Friendly Neighborhood Commentator coming at you with another episode of the good stuff! Tonight we have Morriel joining us for a wonderful conversation where we cover how she got into roleplay, how she incidentally was apart of the same Neopets forums TheHumanFloyd was on, and her characters in Elder Scrolls Online. Due to her extensive experience in the subject, I also got to talk to her about her views on Vampirism RP and my gripes with it. I will always say that my views expressed here are strictly my own and cannot stress that is in no way reflective of that of the channel's. I also stress that conversation on this subject is always: to challenge my own opinion. I firmly believe that challenging what you know and seeking the objective truth is a hallmark of open-mindedness. So I cannot thank Morriel enough for indulging me in that part of the conversation. With all that being said, be prepared to listen to the myriad of tangents we go on as we talk about stuff ranging from Bayonetta to Megalobox to Kingdom Hearts 3. I do hope you guys enjoy this episode!

ES Spotlight - Episode 16 [Rokthor Shattershield]

Hey there guys! This is Your Friendly Neighorhood Commentator coming at you with another episode. This time I talk to a true, blue Skyrim Nord. Now for transparency's sake, I'll admit that Rok and I are guildies. You see after having a conversation with Sarinteal way back in episode 14 about his character and the Altmer, I wanted to go ahead and look at the opposites to the Altmer. In my mind, the Nords are antithetical to the Altmer and I couldn't think of anyone that RPs hardy Nord like Rokthor. Thus we had this conversation! On the plus side, you are looking at a COLOSSAL episode. Our longest one to date, clocking in at 4 hours! So once again, I've decided to split the episodes up into 2 parts and release them both simultaneously for your pleasure. Hope you all enjoy this one, I had a lot of fun with it!

ES Spotlight - Episode 15 [GangzyGirl]

Welcome to our 15th episode ladies and gents! Tonight I wanted to speak to a Dunmer roleplayer and get her story. She plays a Hlaalu businessman by the name of Vytalas Hlaalu, a Telvanni by the name of Dinya, and one-half of the Ashlander twins, Hasiran Zahuulu. Listening to how she got into Roleplay and Elder Scrolls brought a smile to my face. The reason being is that I had a similar experience in how I was introduced to the concept of RP. Though we couldn't grab the amount of time and effort that went into the 3-4 years of RP in ESO, we were able to grab a few "snapshots" if you will. Discussions about specific instances that give us a better view of the broader picture of Gangzygirl's experiences on ESO. Prompt and elaborate, it was a pleasure to have a chat with her. So sit back and enjoy!

ES Spotlight - Episode 14 [Sarinteal]

Dear viewers it's good to be back! I didn't anticipate a 2-month hiatus, but I'm happy to say I am back. And in an effort to make it up to you all, I bring a YUGE episode this time around! So YUGE that it ended having to be split into two parts. In this episode, I got to speak with an Altmer roleplayer. I'll be the first to admit that the Altmer are my least favorite race. Not because of any negative traits, nothing like that. But because the concept and lore surrounding them seems complicated an alien to me. So in an effort to try and understand the Altmer, I reached out to our guest in hopes of learning. Needless to say we ended up having hours upon hours of conversation. The most stimulating part was exploring ideas and going back and forth about the Summerset expansion (it was a week since it's launch at the time of this recording). Not only did I get to know Sarin as a person, I also was educated in this episode. Sarin, if you're reading this: A thousand thank-yous for the conversation. I sincerely enjoyed it!

ES Spotlight - Episode 13 - [GrumpyVivec]

This video is apart of a double feature. See the link here: https://youtu.be/c7W_5I83UCg So I'll admit dear audience that this episode was a bit experimental. I usually interview roleplayers on Elder Scrolls Online. However, I'd be remiss not to have a conversation with this gentleman, scholar, and artist. Renown for his art-commissions, this man has helped many roleplayers of Elder Scrolls Online, World of Warcraft, Guild Wars 2, Star Wars: The Old Republic (and many more MMOs) give form to their ideas. I never had a conversation with a freelance artist before so I had to satiate my curiosity by speaking to the man. What's his workday like? What does he like to draw? What sort of equipment does he use? What does he enjoy about his work? All these questions and more are answered in tonight's episode. Ladies and gentlemen, we have GrumpyVivec on the show tonight!

ES Spotlight - Episode 12 [TheTookyBird]

This video is apart of a double feature. See the link here: https://youtu.be/pLo8lvBfaOE It's not often that I'm fortunate enough to have a sit-down with a Renaissance Lady. It's rarer still that we share many commonalities. But you see that alot in this episode with tonight's guest, TheTookyBird. Ladies and Gentlemen, tonight I sit down with someone who has taken a deep dive into Wyress roleplay and the lore surrounding the Wyrd. She has even written a guide to the obscurity of Wyress lore (to be found below) as well as a few journal entries that showcase how in-depth her characters are. Interestingly enough, she was also one of the first people to help start RPHQ. A fact that I did not learn about until after the interview. Funny how some things tend to go around full circle. Anyways ladies and gents, it was a real pleasure to have a conversation with Tooky and I'm sure you guys will enjoy this episode as well. So sit back and have a listen!

What's that you say? Episode 10? Yes! We have made it to Episode 10. Boy am I glad that we have made it this far and we couldn't have done it without you lovely folks. With that being said, today we have DerAlleinTiger with us tonight. This gentleman was kind enough to indulge me in what made his character tick, what his character had gone through, and his journey in the game from someone randomly passing by a bunch of RPers to leading a few RP guilds himself. We talk a bit about history (I'm sure you guys still love chats about history) a little bit about books, and a little bit about writing. For the first time we have an episode finally breaking the 2 hour mark. So I advise that ya sit back, grab a cup of hot chocolate, and enjoy!

Friends, fellows, Roleplayers! Lend me your ears! We have another episode. At the time of the recording it was literally a few days after our guest had finally finished off an in-depth, 10-month long plot. He poured a lot of thought into it and in this episode, we take our time exploring the plot and the different story threads that were all at an interplay with each other. Our guest is also a cinema-buff. So we also delve into a discussion about favorite movies, directors, cinematographers, and the craft of movie-making. I had a blast with this episode because I got to see what made this guest tick when it comes to story-crafting. Ladies, gentlemen, and variations thereof! Tonight Artiemes aka Art, joins us!

ES Spotlight - Episode 9 [Tyrrean Vanarius]

Ladies, gentlemen, Apache helicopters, and mudkipz! Today you're in for a conversation with a gentleman from the UK. That's right folks we have Tyrrean with us tonight. Best known for playing his imperial, Tyrrean Vanarius of the Vanarii clan and the Centurion of the now-defunct Centuria Vindicta. His story is an interesting one as he started out as just a member of that guild and eventually climbed through the ranks to become it's GM. He's a man after my own heart as we both share a love history. So in addition to learning about his character and diving into differences between the NA and EU communities, we also nerd out a bit over Roman generals and Emperors. I definitely had fun with this conversation and I hope you do too!

Note: Due to carelessness and technical difficulties on my part, the last portion of this episode did not make it. 1000 apologies to you, the listener, and to Fyurae for my mistake. 

Here we are at episode 8 my fellow roleplayers! Sparing you all the chit-chat and getting straight to the point, tonight we have a conversation with @Fyurae. She is a Daggerfall Covenant North American roleplayer here on ESO. You might know her for redguard trio: Na'im Siavash, Adil Basir, and Hesham Siavash. For this conversation, I got to sit back and listen to what she had to say as I got to know her and her characters. Fy is also an event organizer, having helped host the Black Hawk Fight Night and the unofficial DFC Tavern Night. Despite my mistake, I hope that you guys enjoy this episode.

Welcome back my fellow roleplayers! For this episode, I sit down with the gentleman and scholar, Brynwulf Mer-Bane. I first got to know the man on the Progenitor in SWTOR and met him again on the EU server in ESO. Wanting to talk to another fellow across the pond, I decided to sit down with him and ask about his character and the things he's done for Pact and Skyrim oriented RP. We also touch on topics such as the recent Dragon Bones content update and the idea of the Three Banners War. I hope you guys enjoy the conversation just as much as I did. We'll catch you all in the next episode^^

ES Spotlight - Episode 6 [ShadowHvo]

Welcome welcome welcome! Welcome to the sixth episode of Elder Scrolls Spotlight! For this episode, we will be crossing the Atlantic Ocean to be speaking with a Roleplayer from the EU server. Don't worry Tyrrean, I had you guys in mind from the very start of this project. Here's a fun fact some: your host actually began roleplaying in ESO on the EU servers before crossing to NA (couldn't continue to make the timezones work for my schedule, unfortunately). This is in part, an explanation of how I've come to know ShadowHvo. We actually met on the Progenitor server back in SWTOR. He is a fine fellow who gives all of his Danish countrymen a good name and interesting fellow to talk to about Vampirism and Vampire RP. So sit back, and a have a listen as we talk about his adventures in RP and discuss at length some of the misgivings of Vampire RP

We now have come to the conclusion of the RPMMO-Radio episodes. And for the conclusion we have Sib! Although admittedly it's a short conversation compared to the last few episodes, it is still one in which I enjoyed immensely. We cover Sib's journey through RP, how she was introduced to it, and how she pushes herself into new grounds by RPing characters that personalities unlike her own. Please sit back, relax, and have a listen^^

Hello, my fellow Roleplayers! Hope you're having a good New Year^^

For today's episode we'll be interviewing Ashen Phoenix from the RPMMO Radio podcasting team. A podcast held bi-weekly on Saturdays by Ashen Phoenix, Sib, and Jaz. They talk about RP in general and the presence that it has in MMOs. They cover subjects between RP and Reality and how RP can affect a person's life.

I'm happy to say that Episodes 3-5 will be released weekly as apart of this section of episodes called the RPMMO Radio trilogy. The reason being is that I will be sitting down with each member individually to talk about their character and their experience RPing inside Elder Scrolls Online. You can find a link to their Twitch channel and their Discord channel below. See you guys in the next episode!

But I hope you enjoy this first episode as I'll be sitting down with TheHumanFloyd. I'd also like to say thank you to the man as he immediately said yes when I proposed the idea of having the podcast be under the RPHQ banner.

I hope you guys enjoy this, yes there is voice fry, and I'll see you all in the next one. Stay frosty!
