Avowedcast is a Avowed Gaming Podcast by the fans and for the fans.
When did it start? Avowedcast was created by Tsora in August of 2020 after the release of the first trailer for the game at the XBOX Games Showcase. Avowed is Obsidian Entertainment’s first person RPG set in the world of Eora. This world was the backdrop for the Pillars of Eternity isometric RPG series.
How is this podcast different? Tsora wanted to create a podcast that was owned by the fan community. Fans are allowed to submit video, audio and written content that will be shared among the community. Fans are also invited to help guest host various episodes, allowing for very diverse commentary and opinions. Tsora coordinates, hosts, moderates, edits and posts each episode.
What content and topics will be shared and discussed each episode? Though Tsora will bring a variety of questions and topics to the table, discussion has no limit. Anything is fair game. Obvious topics will include game content, news updates, patches, mechanics, art, lore, culture, geography, etc. However, fans can steer the conversation by submitting video/audio/text questions, opinions, observations, theories, gameplay stories, and much more. Guest fans can join us live and talk about their gaming experiences and express opinions on any gaming-related topic. The only IRL topics we will not discuss are: religion, politics, money, race. We want to stay focused on what we love: the games and playing them.
How long is each episode? It depends. Depending on how much content is submitted, how many guests join, the amount of news released, and topic depth, episodes could last anywhere from 15 minutes to 2 hours. However, most episodes will likely fall between 30 minutes and 1 hour in length.
How regularly will you post an episode? You can count on at least one episode every two weeks. It is possible we will drop more or even split longer podcasts and release them separately on a weekly basis. But, we are fans doing this for free and don’t want to burn out. So, every two weeks is our main goal.
Where can I find the podcast? Our main platforms will be iTunes and Spotify. However, you can also find us on Sticher and TuneIn. We would like to release at least one video a month on our YouTube channel. But, audio podcasts are our main priority and focus for now.
Do you need help? YES! Obviously, this podcast is a passion project. We do not get paid anything. We do not monetize either. But, if you are a fan and don’t mind not getting paid, we would love to have you join our little team. We need help with everything from updating the blog with regular content, screening fan mail/voice/video, advertising the podcast, managing forums, guest hosting, and more. Email us to let us know how you want to help: email@example.com
Do you let other fans join you on the podcast to talk? YES! That’s what makes our podcast unique. In fact, we hope to have many different and diverse voices from time to time. However, if you agree to participate, you must sign a digital release that allows us to post your vocal commentary on the podcast. So, if you are a fan and want to join us on a live broadcast (we use Discord for audio-only), please contact us with your info: firstname.lastname@example.org
Do you have a Discord community anyone can join? YES! Join us at: https://discord.gg/xEqrkQy
Are you affiliated with Obsidian Entertainment? No. We love them. We would gladly buy them breakfast and second breakfast. But, we don’t work for them. We are merely fans.
