WEBVTT 1 00:00:06.719 --> 00:00:11.910 Hey everybody, welcome back. It is time to go behind the mask once 2 00:00:12.029 --> 00:00:19.309 again, part two, and we're going to call this particular episode first contact, 3 00:00:21.190 --> 00:00:27.379 because we need a good title for things. But Anyway, I digress. 4 00:00:27.460 --> 00:00:32.979 All right. So in the last episode we broke down the creation of 5 00:00:33.140 --> 00:00:39.369 the show and the first five episodes. So now we're going to move forward 6 00:00:40.609 --> 00:00:52.679 into episodes six through ten and our first contact with who would become known affectionately 7 00:00:52.920 --> 00:00:59.200 worldwide as bridge Jordan. Yes, okay, so let's break down this story 8 00:00:59.320 --> 00:01:07.750 for you. So the story goes back to March St Patrick's Day to be 9 00:01:07.829 --> 00:01:14.390 exact. We had just released the Rainbow Bridge episode, the one where the 10 00:01:15.030 --> 00:01:19.579 ending of it was my take on a kids show where I tried to put 11 00:01:19.620 --> 00:01:23.780 as many INU windows as possible into a four minute period. I think I 12 00:01:23.819 --> 00:01:26.219 did pretty good. You think we should bring that back? I don't know, 13 00:01:26.299 --> 00:01:34.090 maybe it's up to you guys. You let me know. So we 14 00:01:34.409 --> 00:01:42.170 had the first five episodes done and in the can before we ever released episode 15 00:01:42.170 --> 00:01:46.450 one. So we knew what the first five episodes were going to be. 16 00:01:48.359 --> 00:01:57.359 We actually had two more lined up after that and it was a matter of 17 00:01:57.159 --> 00:02:01.670 just how we were going to stage him and push him out. But then 18 00:02:01.829 --> 00:02:10.909 things changed on St Patrick's Day, March seventeen. You're of our Lord Two 19 00:02:10.990 --> 00:02:16.780 Thousand and twenty one. And here's what happened. We were just going about 20 00:02:16.780 --> 00:02:22.860 our business, doing our thing, enjoying life, live in the dream, 21 00:02:23.259 --> 00:02:31.889 and we got a message through facebook from a person whose name was Brett Jordan, 22 00:02:32.530 --> 00:02:39.370 and I don't know anybody with hated first names other than Jacques Clan Van 23 00:02:39.409 --> 00:02:46.039 Damn, so I was a little huh okay, but anyway, the message 24 00:02:46.159 --> 00:02:53.120 read O mg. Loved this whole idea and show laughed out loud while listening 25 00:02:53.360 --> 00:02:59.110 on my walk. Just wrote an apple review. Keep up the great work, 26 00:02:59.509 --> 00:03:02.990 so much fun, like fractured fairy tales with a Neil game in twist. 27 00:03:05.030 --> 00:03:09.909 I love that message because Neil Gaiman is hands down my favorite author. 28 00:03:09.990 --> 00:03:15.259 Ariel replied to the message and said thank you so much, so much fun 29 00:03:15.259 --> 00:03:20.300 to do. Your kind words mean so much. It's true. REDHEART emoji 30 00:03:20.419 --> 00:03:24.419 there. Well, then we took it offline and Ariel and I started talking 31 00:03:24.500 --> 00:03:38.729 about this person that had message us, and the exchange more or less was 32 00:03:39.050 --> 00:03:53.560 US trying to decide if Brett Jordan was a man or a woman. It 33 00:03:53.599 --> 00:03:59.189 was. It was a fun exchange, but anyway, so we thought about 34 00:03:59.189 --> 00:04:02.870 it. I thought about it and I got this Brad idea, I say, 35 00:04:04.270 --> 00:04:10.620 and I sent this message to Ariel. I'm sending that guy, parenthesis 36 00:04:10.699 --> 00:04:15.419 or lady a message directly from Lloyd. That's going to be my gimmick. 37 00:04:15.579 --> 00:04:20.579 She said that's awesome, Lloyd is absolutely inspired. I said, I want 38 00:04:20.740 --> 00:04:26.209 people to message US knowing that Lloyd is going to roast them. She said, 39 00:04:26.209 --> 00:04:29.089 we need to boost that. I said I wanted to be a hidden 40 00:04:29.089 --> 00:04:34.449 JEM and I started recording. Recording was done and I messaged her back. 41 00:04:34.730 --> 00:04:41.800 I said so the name was Brett, Hyphen Jordan, and I almost so 42 00:04:42.120 --> 00:04:46.959 close quote shared account. Some one's been a naughty boy. She said, 43 00:04:47.040 --> 00:04:53.910 AH, Gotcha, I said, but I stopped myself and caught them PRI 44 00:04:53.949 --> 00:04:59.189 Jordan. The rest, as they say, is history. So I send 45 00:04:59.230 --> 00:05:04.029 the message and it sounded like this. Thank you Brett, or is it 46 00:05:04.149 --> 00:05:11.100 Jordan, or is it Brijordan? This is Lloyd Warrington. While I know 47 00:05:11.300 --> 00:05:16.420 Ariel and Chad enjoy the praise, I implore you, please do not encourage 48 00:05:16.500 --> 00:05:20.529 them. Our manual states that. I should ask if there is a favorite 49 00:05:20.610 --> 00:05:26.250 story you would like to hear told, but I believe the more pressing topic 50 00:05:26.329 --> 00:05:30.410 we should discuss as your need to consult with a mental health professional. Obviously, 51 00:05:30.449 --> 00:05:34.959 any one that finds this rubbish entertaining needs an intervention, and we here 52 00:05:35.040 --> 00:05:41.040 at Mascow here for you. Please provide us with your address so we may 53 00:05:41.120 --> 00:05:46.079 dispatch agents to your location, or at the very least we can mail you 54 00:05:46.240 --> 00:05:51.509 something so you will stop listening after sending it. I said to Ariel, 55 00:05:53.269 --> 00:05:56.990 someone can complements us, and Lloyd replies, telling them that they need to 56 00:05:57.149 --> 00:06:03.779 seek mental health professional. Classic Brett Replies, when we now know that it's 57 00:06:03.819 --> 00:06:09.819 Brett, but I I'm not shitting you. It was months before we figured 58 00:06:09.860 --> 00:06:14.660 out it was Brett and not Jordan, and it was actually a hyphenated first 59 00:06:14.660 --> 00:06:21.689 nat. But anyway, he replies and says that is awesome, just keep 60 00:06:21.810 --> 00:06:26.569 doing a great job. I didacted it. A few things there that we 61 00:06:26.649 --> 00:06:32.920 don't need to talk about here. Address such and maybe tell me the origin 62 00:06:33.439 --> 00:06:41.160 of jelly beans, dot dot dot. Now this was St Patrick's Day. 63 00:06:43.279 --> 00:06:46.120 Easter was right around the corner. Ariel reply to that one and said, 64 00:06:46.350 --> 00:06:50.949 Oh, happily, thank you for the suggestion. Back to the text arial 65 00:06:51.029 --> 00:06:56.910 to me. They suggested the origin of Jelly beans. My Reply, Elf 66 00:06:56.990 --> 00:07:02.420 kidneys. That's what jelly beans are. She said yes, I said Black 67 00:07:02.620 --> 00:07:10.740 Market Organ Smuggling of Elf kidneys and Santa is the kingpin or something with the 68 00:07:10.779 --> 00:07:15.100 Keebler elves. HMM. She said, I'll thank on it. So now 69 00:07:15.220 --> 00:07:20.610 we go into episode six. Christmas in April. This episode released the Wednesday 70 00:07:20.610 --> 00:07:30.759 after Easter and we went full Christmas. In April Ariel gave Brett his kidney 71 00:07:30.160 --> 00:07:35.839 origin story based on my suggestion. It was awesome. Now I needed to 72 00:07:35.879 --> 00:07:42.360 come up with a Christmas story. I had some ideas, but not a 73 00:07:42.480 --> 00:07:46.790 writer. Have we talked about this before? Not a writer. So I 74 00:07:46.069 --> 00:07:55.709 reached out to comedian author Doogie Horner and asked his permission to read his book. 75 00:07:56.509 --> 00:08:01.259 That is the twas the night before Christmas version of Die Hard, and 76 00:08:03.100 --> 00:08:09.300 thankfully Doogie gave me permission and so there was episode six. So we now 77 00:08:09.379 --> 00:08:18.290 we've gone from Dr Callahan sneaking into area fifty one to Christmas in April and 78 00:08:18.569 --> 00:08:22.089 the story grows from there. The next episode, proper episode that came out. 79 00:08:22.129 --> 00:08:24.449 We did do a bonus that came out. That was the way it 80 00:08:24.610 --> 00:08:31.120 was. It was episode one, the original version, and then came my 81 00:08:31.519 --> 00:08:39.360 first attempt at actually writing, and it was the story of Doris and Mr 82 00:08:39.519 --> 00:08:48.429 snuggles that are heading to GRANDPA's house and the infamous eggplant story, which I 83 00:08:48.669 --> 00:09:00.299 believe was a request by Paul from cold callers comedy podcast to aerial and she 84 00:09:00.419 --> 00:09:05.700 delivered. Next was Claudett the well, you know Claudett. We need to 85 00:09:05.740 --> 00:09:13.090 bring Claude at back. And then I did the Goatman of Fort Worth, 86 00:09:13.769 --> 00:09:18.409 which I was still on this location kick. I don't know why, but 87 00:09:18.529 --> 00:09:24.039 I was on a kick where I wanted to we originally had talked about the 88 00:09:24.320 --> 00:09:33.000 first season of down to folk being based on states. Each episode would focus 89 00:09:33.120 --> 00:09:39.470 on a state. That is why episode one took place in Montana, episode 90 00:09:39.669 --> 00:09:50.110 two took place in Washington state. Then we did colonial America and then Rainbow 91 00:09:50.149 --> 00:09:52.940 Bridges, where we kind of ditch that idea and move forward. Goat manafort 92 00:09:54.019 --> 00:09:58.500 worth was a remnant and it was a remnant of the original idea where we 93 00:09:58.539 --> 00:10:05.340 were going to take actual folklore and make it into something else. So that 94 00:10:05.419 --> 00:10:09.690 that's where that came from. And now comes a turning point in the show. 95 00:10:11.049 --> 00:10:18.289 Now I already had several episodes recorded. Talking going into episode nine. 96 00:10:18.330 --> 00:10:24.919 I had had recorded an episode which would ultimately be episode ten, just in 97 00:10:26.080 --> 00:10:33.279 case, and that is the infamous episode where I, quote unquote, quit 98 00:10:33.399 --> 00:10:39.990 the show. And the premise behind it was it was recorded and I was 99 00:10:39.110 --> 00:10:45.950 going to sit on it until we got a shitty review. And knock on 100 00:10:46.190 --> 00:10:52.500 wood, we're six months in and haven't got a shitty review yet. That's 101 00:10:52.539 --> 00:10:58.019 not a challenge, it's not a dare. Don't you dare do that to 102 00:10:58.059 --> 00:11:01.340 us. But no, we hadn't had, we didn't have any bad feedback, 103 00:11:01.379 --> 00:11:05.129 but we knew it was inevitable somebody was going to shit on the show. 104 00:11:05.330 --> 00:11:09.929 So I thought it would be funny if we had something in the bank 105 00:11:09.129 --> 00:11:15.889 that when that day came, that episode would immediately be released. And it 106 00:11:16.009 --> 00:11:20.879 was me just checking out. I was done. I was pissed off and 107 00:11:20.919 --> 00:11:26.480 I was done. But we recorded it and I recorded it and then I 108 00:11:26.720 --> 00:11:35.549 send it to send it to Ariel to listen to and she absolutely loved it 109 00:11:37.309 --> 00:11:48.940 and then she wrote a continuation of the story which placed her more in the 110 00:11:48.220 --> 00:11:54.379 universe of the story of mask. Up until this play, up until this 111 00:11:54.539 --> 00:12:01.809 point, the stories and mask never crossed paths. So this was actually the 112 00:12:01.289 --> 00:12:13.929 first time that we would have a crossover of Lloyd mask and the storytelling itself. 113 00:12:13.850 --> 00:12:22.039 This episode was still a few weeks away, or you know, it 114 00:12:22.200 --> 00:12:26.519 was a few weeks away from being ever released at least, but it was 115 00:12:26.679 --> 00:12:31.950 in the bank just in case it needed to be released. Then I had 116 00:12:31.990 --> 00:12:41.870 a great idea of bringing aerial on the perfect package podcast to brainstorm a folklore 117 00:12:41.990 --> 00:12:50.100 story for the show. We would do a draft style picking of story elements 118 00:12:50.700 --> 00:12:54.779 and then combine them into the two stories that we would record, and that 119 00:12:54.940 --> 00:13:00.330 ended up being episode nine. It's called perfect folklore story and it was the 120 00:13:00.529 --> 00:13:09.289 story of dragons and orphans. And my story was about an escape mental patient 121 00:13:09.049 --> 00:13:13.159 from a tasket Arrow in California. Now, when I sat down to write 122 00:13:13.720 --> 00:13:20.840 that, keep in mind mind episode ten was done. It had already been 123 00:13:20.000 --> 00:13:26.039 recorded. In fact, there were several stories that were done and ready to 124 00:13:26.080 --> 00:13:31.590 be released. So when I sat down and wrote the perfect focal or story 125 00:13:31.830 --> 00:13:37.590 for mine with the escapemental patient, I knew elements of stories that were down 126 00:13:37.629 --> 00:13:46.299 the road and I incorporated those into this story, which really started to expand 127 00:13:46.500 --> 00:13:52.460 the fact that this was more than just telling stories and it was going to 128 00:13:52.659 --> 00:13:58.850 start playing out like an audio drama. But the audio drama apart was just 129 00:13:58.090 --> 00:14:03.409 these little ninety two little snippets that were thrown in. But if we could 130 00:14:03.409 --> 00:14:09.320 start integrating the stories and having crossover and bringing callbacks, it would be phenomenal. 131 00:14:09.799 --> 00:14:16.279 And that's what we did. And so, going from the perfect Focalore 132 00:14:16.440 --> 00:14:24.240 story into episode ten, which I put so much stuff from that in, 133 00:14:24.750 --> 00:14:28.149 from episode nine into episode ten, that we had to put that one out. 134 00:14:28.710 --> 00:14:33.909 So, even though we didn't get any negative feedback, we put out 135 00:14:33.909 --> 00:14:37.820 an episode where I was upset about the fact that we were getting bad feedback 136 00:14:39.100 --> 00:14:45.220 and I quit the show. It was our first integrated script with mask where 137 00:14:45.220 --> 00:14:50.620 you got to where it was really out of character, because they were all 138 00:14:50.620 --> 00:15:00.210 characters in this and based on feedback from the show, polls, surveys just 139 00:15:00.409 --> 00:15:07.279 talking to people, this introduced the fan favorite character. Episode Ten was the 140 00:15:07.440 --> 00:15:18.120 debut of Dana. Now, much like Harry, and soon in the near 141 00:15:18.240 --> 00:15:26.309 future, Hubert, which is really his name, Dana comes in and Dana 142 00:15:28.190 --> 00:15:33.750 is played by me. Episode ten is me talking to myself. Now. 143 00:15:33.830 --> 00:15:45.259 The released version of episode ten is shorter than the original version. I cut 144 00:15:45.299 --> 00:15:50.649 out a segment in it where Dana comes in and tells me that I need 145 00:15:50.730 --> 00:15:54.409 to go to the phones. Actually, he comes in and says that Lloyd 146 00:15:56.049 --> 00:15:58.809 called and said that I needed a man up and I should go to the 147 00:15:58.929 --> 00:16:07.120 phones, and so I'd start taking phone calls. I'll Dr Callahan and the 148 00:16:07.320 --> 00:16:15.399 first is an old man or woman that is complaining about the show and they 149 00:16:15.559 --> 00:16:19.190 love all the shows on the pod fix network, but then I come along 150 00:16:19.309 --> 00:16:25.110 and just ruin everything and then she hangs up on me but can't hang up 151 00:16:25.110 --> 00:16:30.710 the phone. There's your comedy beat in that. I take another call that 152 00:16:30.950 --> 00:16:37.899 is somebody saying that I suck, and there's a few like that, and 153 00:16:37.019 --> 00:16:41.179 then the final call is me, not even trying to hide my voice, 154 00:16:41.779 --> 00:16:48.129 talking to myself, and I and that one with is this a real caller? 155 00:16:48.929 --> 00:16:53.850 No, you're talking to yourself and like so, anyway, I cut 156 00:16:53.889 --> 00:16:59.570 all that out. It just it didn't hit quite as well as I thought 157 00:16:59.610 --> 00:17:02.639 it would and it just drug it out longer than it needed to be, 158 00:17:03.640 --> 00:17:08.880 and that was that was that. That was episode ten. I get blown 159 00:17:08.920 --> 00:17:14.240 up at the end because Dana tries to blow the lock and and explodes the 160 00:17:14.319 --> 00:17:19.029 studio and Aeriel comes in to find the carnage and her story, and I 161 00:17:19.509 --> 00:17:30.180 believe that was also the debut of Jessica Johnson, who is the female announcer 162 00:17:30.539 --> 00:17:36.019 when Lloyd is unavailable. Lloyd was dealing with some issues, as she said, 163 00:17:36.180 --> 00:17:41.019 and so ten really pushed things in a different direction. Now, while 164 00:17:41.220 --> 00:17:48.769 this was all happening, we started getting communication going back and forth with the 165 00:17:48.849 --> 00:17:53.410 podcast, two girls on a bench who, if you ask them, they 166 00:17:53.450 --> 00:18:00.119 are the reason that we have Brett Jordan on board for Jordan, and they're 167 00:18:00.200 --> 00:18:03.880 sort of right. I will not give them credit, though, because I'm 168 00:18:03.920 --> 00:18:08.400 an Asshole, and I think where the lines of communication with them really opened 169 00:18:08.440 --> 00:18:15.470 up is after the Jelly bean story came out. They gave credit to Brett 170 00:18:17.549 --> 00:18:22.589 for writing that story. I didn't care. Evidently writers care about that Shit 171 00:18:22.789 --> 00:18:27.140 and got a very apologetic message from Brett that he never told them that and 172 00:18:27.740 --> 00:18:33.779 and they issued an apology. It's like, I don't really give shit, 173 00:18:34.980 --> 00:18:38.339 but you know, it is what it is. You know, Kudos for 174 00:18:38.420 --> 00:18:41.650 them for having high, higher standards, and I do. You know, 175 00:18:41.809 --> 00:18:45.849 my standards lay on the floor and I just step over him every day. 176 00:18:45.930 --> 00:18:51.690 So that's it, man. That is the story up to this point of 177 00:18:52.529 --> 00:18:56.519 two girls on a bench sending us one of their own, one of their 178 00:18:56.640 --> 00:19:02.519 bench things, if you will, and him inspiring a story that is still 179 00:19:02.559 --> 00:19:11.950 talked about for Christmas. And then a crossover led into a new realm of 180 00:19:12.069 --> 00:19:17.190 it, and and then, of course, Dana was born. Now I'm 181 00:19:17.269 --> 00:19:22.269 sure everybody wants to know where Dana is. Dana is always here. He's 182 00:19:22.269 --> 00:19:27.619 an intern and he's always here. He's just and he always seems to be 183 00:19:27.779 --> 00:19:33.299 just off Mike, Right, Danna? Yeah, yeah, just over here. 184 00:19:33.380 --> 00:19:37.339 But why to Mike? That's right. Dana's much easier to get done 185 00:19:37.380 --> 00:19:41.849 than any of the phone stuff because I don't have to do any volume tricks. 186 00:19:41.890 --> 00:19:45.450 I just need to lean away from the microphone and it's an easy voice 187 00:19:45.490 --> 00:19:52.569 to drop into. Now, where did the voice come from? He's actually 188 00:19:52.690 --> 00:19:57.079 inspired by somebody I worked with back in the S in Oakland, California. 189 00:19:59.000 --> 00:20:03.799 He was a gentleman who was blind and partially deaf, and a lot of 190 00:20:04.000 --> 00:20:11.029 his traits are in Dana. The fact that every sentence starts with yeah, 191 00:20:11.190 --> 00:20:15.190 that's what the Real Dana did. That wasn't his real name. Oh Yeah, 192 00:20:15.309 --> 00:20:18.269 was. Yeah, we was Dana. Really was Dana. Damn, 193 00:20:18.309 --> 00:20:22.460 I should probably change Dana's name, but anyway, now, so Dana's yeah, 194 00:20:22.900 --> 00:20:26.660 that was a hundred percent the person that it was inspired on. The 195 00:20:26.779 --> 00:20:33.660 other the other character trait that I have put into Dana in recent weeks is 196 00:20:33.779 --> 00:20:38.289 the fact that he's always late and he always has shitty excuses to of them 197 00:20:38.490 --> 00:20:45.049 that he has used now are actual excuses that the real Dana used. Anybody 198 00:20:45.089 --> 00:20:48.569 that is from the bay area and is familiar with the Bart, the Barrier 199 00:20:48.890 --> 00:20:55.720 Rappit Transit, Aka the subway, and one day I actually took the phone 200 00:20:55.759 --> 00:20:59.880 call that sounded something like this. Good morning, this is Chad. May 201 00:21:00.039 --> 00:21:03.509 help you. Oh yeah, actually, there's a data I'll go be a 202 00:21:03.549 --> 00:21:07.430 little bit like today. The Bart had a flat. You know that. 203 00:21:07.750 --> 00:21:11.470 The Bart, the subway, had a flap. Okay, you know, 204 00:21:11.789 --> 00:21:14.789 and and it did never stop there with like it was things like, Oh 205 00:21:14.789 --> 00:21:17.349 yeah, I got to be a I'm going to be a little bit like 206 00:21:17.470 --> 00:21:22.900 today. The power when out in my apartment, I can't get my door 207 00:21:22.019 --> 00:21:30.539 open. That was just another day for for Dana, and I know that 208 00:21:30.859 --> 00:21:34.410 people were nervous. I'm not going to mention names. People were nervous about 209 00:21:34.930 --> 00:21:40.490 Dana going out into the world because it sounds like I'm making fun of somebody 210 00:21:40.769 --> 00:21:45.769 with some kind of mental illness, disability, if you will. That is 211 00:21:45.849 --> 00:21:51.759 not the case. If you listen to his back story that has been intertwined 212 00:21:51.880 --> 00:21:56.640 in different stories and different segments that we've done, Dana is a fully functional 213 00:21:56.680 --> 00:22:03.430 adult human being that was in a car accident and put his head through a 214 00:22:03.589 --> 00:22:07.630 tree and had his jaw wired shut for a little too long and now he 215 00:22:07.670 --> 00:22:11.390 has a speech impediment. But I love one of my favorite things about Dana 216 00:22:11.630 --> 00:22:17.819 and the character of Dana is the fact that if he's trying to prove a 217 00:22:18.140 --> 00:22:22.700 point, he will just repeat himself. He doesn't provide any new information, 218 00:22:22.940 --> 00:22:26.740 he just repeats himself thinking that that's going to you know, going to get 219 00:22:26.779 --> 00:22:30.849 him somewhere. Like when Lloyd was on vacation. You know, he and 220 00:22:30.890 --> 00:22:37.730 I have a conversation. That is yeah, you know Lloyd. Do you 221 00:22:37.809 --> 00:22:44.799 know where Mr Warrenton go, because he's he went on vacation. You know, 222 00:22:44.880 --> 00:22:48.440 tell me he would go on vacation. No, I don't know where 223 00:22:48.880 --> 00:22:52.599 where Lloyd is or you know where he went on vacation? Well, well, 224 00:22:52.640 --> 00:22:56.039 yeah, but you know he go on vacation. You know, tell 225 00:22:56.119 --> 00:22:57.630 me, you got vacation. Well, I'm sorry, he didn't tell you 226 00:22:57.710 --> 00:23:02.349 that he was going on vacation, but he's on vacation now, so I 227 00:23:02.470 --> 00:23:04.829 don't know where he is. Yeah, but you'll miss a warrant to go 228 00:23:04.950 --> 00:23:08.309 on vacation and you know, tell me he would go on vacation. You 229 00:23:08.430 --> 00:23:12.019 know, something like that. That's what it sounds like. So here we 230 00:23:12.099 --> 00:23:15.619 are, man, here we are. So what's happening behind the scenes, 231 00:23:15.779 --> 00:23:21.339 behind the scenes, is two girls on a bench have now done around this 232 00:23:21.579 --> 00:23:26.619 time. Have now put out a casting call, so to speak, asking 233 00:23:26.859 --> 00:23:33.890 their benchings to write a story in the style of down to folk, and 234 00:23:36.089 --> 00:23:41.680 we have agreed to use those stories on the show. So the next few 235 00:23:41.839 --> 00:23:48.680 episodes that come out are a part of that invasion, that benchling invasion. 236 00:23:49.400 --> 00:23:56.190 So check out part three coming soon.

We're going to jump into the benching invasion 256 00:25:22.089 --> 00:25:26.130 and so much more on the horizon. This is where things pick up. 257 00:25:26.450 --> 00:25:32.490 The origin stories are done. We're moving into a new phase. We've decided 258 00:25:33.009 --> 00:25:36.440 that this is more of an audio drama, that just telling made up stories. 259 00:25:36.960 --> 00:25:38.799 Well, at least I have. Nobody else has gotten on board with 260 00:25:38.880 --> 00:25:45.039 that yet, but they will soon. So thanks for listening and until next 261 00:25:45.039 --> 00:25:48.000 time, I will talk to you then see it in the discord.
