    This sounds awesome, particularly your mentioning of the Adventure zone which I think is th perfect reference for what I am looking for. If you are still taking people I would love to join!

    @imbarkus: Episode 2 is much better (no lingering shots that feel awkward, no 15+ year old footage with poor audio and video quality) so far. IMO the 3 panel thing and the constantly cutting to differ...
