'From the Jaws of Defeat' an Entertaining Success Update ID

Plywood Fiend has completed his Wing Commander audio adventure! The story begins with a TCN infoburst recapping the recent biological attack on Locanda, and then it follows a handful of pilots on an exciting mission.

I'm impressed with the quality of the finished product. It's surprisingly gripping and fun. Good pacing, tension and clever use of familiar Wing Commander sound effects make this radio show much more entertaining than just a group of Wingnut reading fan fiction aloud. It's also wonderful to see how a committed group of WC fans can bring something like this together relatively quickly - less than two months in this case. We're already looking forward to the next one!

Presenting 'Wing Commander: From the Jaws of Defeat', first of what will hopefully be plenty of Wing Commander audio productions.

A quick warning to headphone users, this can get very loud at times. Also, for anyone who dislikes such things, be warned of strong language.

I'd also like to take a moment to extend my appreciation to the quality team I had working with me on this project, specifically Malcolm Reynolds, Slim Jim and Fowl Firekkan. Their dedication, enthusiasm, initiative and suggestions have all been invaluable, and it was a privilege to work with them all. Thanks guys.

I suppose I'll need to get started on another script.

Live Wing Commander Jazz Recording A Huge Success!

RPS Highlights Origin Fandom

Rock Paper Shotgun has run a neat article on longtime Origin collector Joe Garrity. There's a really interesting Q&A that delves into how Joe got started many years ago buying up spare copies of Ultima games and meeting with their creators. It also highlights some of the good work that fans have done to preserve historic material, such as our 2008 trip to archive Origin source documents at Mythic or the assistance Wingnuts gave Raylight to develop Prophecy for the Game Boy Advance.
