This is a campaign is trouble, so this is a short article to reach out to anyone who wants to hear it.
I’ve talked Journey Quest before, it’s a series set in a D&D world without going so thoroughly referential as Order of the Stick or Goblins, more that the internal logic of things like character roles and systems like magic and the relations between races, the nearness of the divine powers, and the presence of undead, orcs and ogres and that kind of ilk.

The longer title of this article was going to be ‘Pro Wrestling and YouTube: A Look At How YouTube Has Helped All Wrestling Promotions, Large And Small’ – And then I realised how ridiculously long that title was. Pro Wrestling is definitely an interest of mine, as many of you will be aware. With the Royal Rumble coming up at the end of the month, I thought I’d do one of my usual rare talks about how ridiculous a show can be – But instead of focusing purely on WWE, I thought that it might be interesting to talk about how YouTube has played such a massive role in helping with what is effectively a boom of interest.
2018 has been home to some of the best and worst things we’ve seen in a while, which isn’t surprising – That happens every year. So, last week during our usual Top 10 slot, you chose for us to write about the Top 10 Worst of 2018. So buckle up, we’re focusing on the best and worst of anything geeky, from films, video games and even the internet itself gets a stern looking at.
If you’re like me, you’ve probably gone onto YouTube and at some point, you’ve seen mention of Article 13. Indeed, it’s something that’s been cropping up left right and centre recently, because it’s right at the forefront of what’s important to the internet. You and I are used to going onto a website and reading valuable critique of your favourite games, films, tv, anime and more. You can then leave your own comment in return; sharing your favourite memes in the process. This could be threatened by Article 13 with the way it’s currently drafted, which may affect the way you read websites or indeed watch your favourite YouTube content creators. If you don’t know what’s going on with Article 13, then read on for a quick article on what it is and how it affects you.
A belated and very short article today as Joel is not feeling too well. So instead here’s our end-of-expo round up conversation, kindly edited by Tim.
Don’t forget to subscribe to the GeekOut YouTube channel, where we deliver yet more geeky content, Tim’s “Let’s Plays”, more interviews and conversations, posted sporadically when we have content to share.
Hoo boy, I say this every year with regards to how much I miss doing these videos, but it’s true. I always miss recording Let’s Plays for people and this year is no different. I’ve already discussed with a number of people how much I’ve missed recording Let’s Plays in 2018 and as time goes on, that desire gets greater. I’m looking forward to getting back into it – and even though I’ve been asked by some people if I’ll do Tekken Let’s Plays, the answer is “Probably not”, as I’m not great at it. However, I intend to return to recording YouTube videos for all of you, so what will we be retruning to?
I do my best not to make two roleplay posts in the same week (the same rule applies to film, or internet culture, or video games and so forth) but this is just a very quick post while I hastily finish my preparations for GeekOut Shrewsbury, for which I should – as you read – already being attending, and the nub of the topic is fairly self explanatory:
