Biggest delay to Road Quest
DayBreakKing asks: What has been the biggest delay in Road Quest's development?
- Graham: Plans did not work out - the Crew were busy with other things, which took time away from their work on the mountain of footage.
Fun with Microwaves 3
Ken Johnson asks: Fun with Microwaves 3 when?
- Graham: May 7th 2012. I don't know that we have plans to do a fourth.
- Ian: I think Fun with Microwaves 4 might just be the roll-out of 5G across America.
- Cameron: "Weird, my weather app isn't working, but I can download it really fast now."
Drummi asks: Who are your top 3 most influential comedians?
- Cameron: Mitch Hedberg, Bill Hicks and Chris Onstad
- Ian: Don Ferguson, Bill Matheson and Denis Leary
- Graham: Barry Took
First internet activities
Pär Moberg asks: What is the first thing you remember doing on Internet? Chat, visit a specific website, that kind of thing.
- Cameron: Going to an internet café and looking up a walkthrough for Ultima IV: Quest of the Avatar, which had just been ported to the Nintendo Entertainment System.
- Graham: At a friend's house looking up a walkthrough for Final Fantasy VII (probably), as his family didn't have internet yet.
- Ian: First saw The Internet at Edmonton Advanced Research Park. First used The Internet to download a web browser with an FTP client.
Games you'd like to see re-made
Tamsin asks: With FFVII being my favorite game, the upcoming Remake is my most anticipated game of all time. If each of you could pick a game to get a similar big-budget, high-effort remake treatment, what would it be and why?
Favourite LRR character
abaraiRenji3 asks: What is your favorite character that you've made for a sketch/show with LRR?
- Cameron: Avenir, from Dice Friends - Bylaw & Order
- Graham: Dave's Spokesman
- Ian: The Decadent Man, Bartleby
Star Trek: Picard characters
Harold Price asks: What character (that hasn't already been announced/confirmed) would you like to see show up on Star Trek: Picard?
Emotional recharge methods
Michael M asks: LRR is a beacon of positivity in an often troubling world. What are some ways you recharge your emotional reservoirs?
Sitting quietly and not talking to anybody.
- Graham sits very quietly and plays Magic: Arena or watches long YouTube videos
- Ian sits on a slightly shaded bench near a waterfall in Beacon Hill Park, eating lunch while listening to an audiobook and watching the ducks
- Cameron goes out of his house to a pub, restaurant or coffee shop to read a book
Preparation differences between on- and off-screen Game Master-ing
Bryan Appley asks: Cam: do you Gm RPGs outside of LRR? If so what differences are there in your preparation process for a home game and for a streamed game?
- Cameron : Yes, running or playing every week for a decade, but not since moving to Victoria. LRR has a stream slot for 2 to 2½ hours and things have to happen, so there's a lot more prep to ensure particular things happen in a session. A home game would mean spending 4 or 5 hours with his friends, with the players having more freedom over what happens.
Third-favourite sandwich shape
Phillip Bradbury asks: Now that the YT Memberships system is introducing a bunch more people to the paying-LRR-money community, and taking into account the relative populations of Twitch and Patreon, what is your third-favourite sandwich shape?
- Cameron: Burrito (first: Crusty Bun-wich)
- Graham: Uncut (first: Large Triangles, second: Smaller Triangles)
- Ian: Open-faced (first Burrito, second: Uncut)
