Projects

UNDER CONSTRUCTION: BLOG COMING SOON

I thought it would be fun to create a page to keep tabs on all my projects, including past projects. It will also be a good place for me to information for collaborative projects I’d like to do.

I’ll start listing any projects I’m actively looking for collaborators on. Then the next four sections will be my various projects, from the First Priority tier to the the lats tier, the Graveyard.

Collaborators Needed

The following section is set aside for all the projects that I’m actively looking for collaborators to join me.

Foam Fights

Foam Fights is a series of YouTube vides featuring two fighters per video. They are lightly edited and mainly made so people can analyze the fights. I am always looking for volunteers!

If you’d like me to come to your park and feature you in some fighty videos, consider applying. I can’t guarantee I’ll be able to make the trip (time as well as travel expenses are two big factors) but it will be nice to have a list of volunteers.

Current Projects

1st Priority (Front Burner)

A list of projects that are on the front burner. These are projects that I’m actively working on and take top priority. They are weekly or monthly projects that have a deadline.

Weekly YouTube Videos

I try to put out weekly YouTube videos every Monday. This encompasses al my fighting videos. On occasion I will supplement a fighting video with one of my other LARP video projects.

High Trek Podcast

High Trek is a podcast I’ve been working on with my friend Riley. The basic premise is that we get high, watch Star Trek The Next Generation and talk about the episode.

I’ve seen the show numerous times but Riley, they haven’t seen it at all. This is a podcast where two extremes meet in the middle, eat some edibles and analyze the show. You can check it out at www.hightrekpodcast.com.

We currently have season 1 published. We are working on Season 2 now.

Baelnorn and Friends

Baelnorn and Friends is a monthly interactive YouTube Live show. I get a few of my LARP friends to join me on stream and we talk Amtgard, life, games and other nerd stuff. All the while interacting with chat.

We have been on hiatus over the summer but I plan on starting it back up soon. If not November 2023 I hope to get it started again January of 2024

You can be notified when I go live if you follow my YouTube Channel. If you want to be notified more than a few days in advance, you can follow my Facebook Page too.

You can also watch them after they aired. You can find them in this playlist. I also sometimes cut up segments into individual videos and publish them.

2nd Priority (Back Burner)

These projects are on the back burner. I’m working on them but not at the expense of the 1st Priority projects. Some of them have seen more recent public releases than others, but they are all actively in the mix, even if not released on a schedule

Fighters League (Name Pending)

(More detailed explanation in THIS BLOG)

This is a new project I am working on. It’s similar to Foam fights, it’s a series of one on one fights, but there will be more structure to them and there will be winners and losers. The idea is to do a tournament.

The fights would take place over a 3-6 month period. I would need people to commit to traveling, preferably to Salem Oregon, but I’m willing to go as far as Vancouver on occasion.

I already have my fighters, we are working on trying to figure out a shooting schedule. The only reason this is in the back burner as it isn’t at the point where we have weekly or monthly deadlines.

LARP Chats

This is an interview series that I’ve been releasing since 2022. Each year a new season and a new theme. I was really happy with year one and while year two didn’t have as many guests, I think it was a very good season.

The season for 2024 will happen, but I’m uncertain of the theme, guests or number of episodes. I may even shake up the format a little. Right now it is taking second fiddle to the main content.

Philip Clowes Novel

This a novel I’ve been working on for years now. I had been posting the rough draft on my Patreon. on a monthly basis. It’s set in our modern world, but there is magic, vampires and all sorts of supernatural creatures. You can check it out HERE.

As of right now I have been unable to find the creativity to proceed. I ended with finishing a very large, complicated and climatic battle and I haven’t really been able to find a good way to proceed. However, I am about 2/3 or 3/4 of the way through the rough draft.

Ghosts of the Past

This is a Twitch Dungeness and Dragons show set in the world of Shattered Kingdoms. The goal was to do it on a monthly basis but after the first few episodes I got behind on editing, which snow balled and the project was put on the back burner. I probably should put it on ice, but I think about it often enough I have some hope I might start it back up. the players are still interested.

Along with the show, which is interactive, I also maintain a companion website. You can find it HERE.

Website Blogs and Article

I got to the point of posting weekly content once before, but I don’t foresee me doing that again. However I do plan on making an effort to post more on the website. I may even write a new article!

Let’s LARP

This is an on going series of informational based LARP videos, although many of them will be geared towards Amtgard. I started by rewriting some of my articles into scripts, but the series will eventually include non-repurposed content as well.

I have a few topics that are circulating in my head, but they are no where near formulated enough to produce.

The playlist can be found HERE.

3rd Priority (Refrigerator)

These are projects that are currently on hold but are always at the back of my mind and will eventually be cycled into the 2nd or 1st priority lists. I will occasionally work on them but not at the expense of the 1st or 2nd priority projects

Baelath Chronicles

Baelath Chronicles started its life as a National Novel Writing Month project. It was the first and only time I successfully wrote 50k+ words. While I was ecstatic I finished my my first rough draft of a novel, there was so much work that needed to be done on it before I thought I could publish it as a book, I put it aside, never thinking I’d really come back to it.

Then I found Kindle Vella. I can release the content on a weekly basis in small chunks. It’s a different format than a novel and one I think fits the material well. I’m excited to have the chance to get people to read it.

The story is set in a High Fantasy world of my creation. It focuses on three elves, two brothers and their cousin. They have lived an an idealistic, isolated elven society, never venturing beyond the forested border. You can read it HERE.

As of right now I’m no longer posting this, however that’s mostly due to my bandwidth and recent struggles with another bout of depression. I will get back to doing it at some point.

Narrative Driven Fighting Project (Gladiators of the Shadows)

The project is estimated to be 20-26 episodes long YouTube series. Each episode will be approximately 10-20 minutes long. The project was inspired by Pro Wrestling.

The story elements will be told through semi-improved segments which sandwich a multi-round fighting session. The fighting will not be pre -determined. The results of the fights will affect how the story is told. The show is intended to be a bit corny but with series elements weaved throughout.

Right now I’m not looking for fighters for this series. It was a struggle to try and organize such a large project without any ground work. I’ve decided i will try deferent elements of this project in smaller scale in various other projects unstill the time that I have enough support to pull this off.

Ducal Drinks Reboot

That’s right, I would like to reboot Ducal Drinks. This is a monthly panel show, where I invite people on to talk about a specific topic. I never finished the topics I wanted to cover. I stopped mostly because I didn’t have the time or energy to organize it.

Writing Streams

I would like to get back into the habit of doing Writing streams. Eventually to the point that I’m doing it once a week again. I still want to finish The Presage and I have ideas for at least two more short stories for my writing streams.

I will start doing them again when I feel I have the time and energy. Eventually I’d like to get back into the habit of doing it weekly, but at this point that is something of a pipe dream.

Graveyard (Dead Projects)

These are dead projects. I am no longer working on them or even thinking about them. I think it’s important to keep a list of projects for my own records. Plus I think it’s probably interesting for readers to see all I’ve done, or at least wanted to do. They can see what has worked and what hasn’t. Plus, you never know when something might need to be resurrected

Beer Tasting Twitch Show and YouTube Series

I did one Beer Tasting show on twitch and it was a hit. Not only that, I really enjoyed it. I felt like I made a positive impact in peoples lives. One person even said as much. I really wanted to do one again

Sadly this never happened again and I’m not sure it will ever happen. I still love the idea, I just no longer see this as the most likely future of my content.

2nd Shattered Kingdoms D&D Twitch Show

I have an outline and concept for a 2nd D&D game set in Shattered Kingdoms. Sadly I think this won’t happen, especially given the main one isn’t happening. In the meantime I’ve taken some of the elements I had planned for this campaign and am using them in a private game.

Beers with Baelnorn Reboot

I would love to reboot Beers with Baelnorn but I’m not 100% sure how to do that. I don’t have the energy to research new topics to give a lecture on. However, I love the name so I want to do something with it.

This has morphed into the Let’s LARP series. I discarded the beers aspect and made them pre-recorded videos on YouTube.

Discord Community

I would love to build and maintain a community on my discord server, but it has proven to take more energy to do than I an currently muster.

In the meantime I still check and maintain the server on a regular basis, even if no one else checks it. It’s also a way to be notified when my YouTube videos are posted.. You can join it HERE if you like.

Finished Projects

On the occasion I worked on a long term project that had an end date, they will come here. This is not going to be a large list as I usually try to have continuous projects I can do at least yearly.

Las Vegas Video Blog

I did it, you can watch it HERE. I’ve continued to make blogs, which you can find on a playlist on my YouTube channel.
