Ditto the Monster looks at the world of family friendly online games from a Fabricated American perspective

Ditto is looking for help on Daring Adventures!!

Hi everybody, Ditto here, and I’m looking for help. As people probably know, Ravenwood Radio recently played the final episode of the original ‘Daring Adventures of Ditto’, where Ditto and Madame Jasmine finally defeat Malistaire (sort of). It took around forty episodes and about two years to get through that whole series of adventures, from our first episodes in Krokotopia, through the ‘dirty street’ jokes of Marleybone, the terrors of Grlzzleheim, the lovely Chinese food smells of Mooshu, and finally the lava and ghost filled streets of Dragonspyre. It was fun and exciting and I know many people really enjoyed our adventures, and we are definitely going to continue them soon, but I’m thinking about doing something a little different, and would love to hear from the fans of Daring Adventures to help figure out what we do next.

First, once we got into them we realized that the original Daring Adventures were too epic in scale. I had such a grand goal – to defeat Malistaire, which at the time we started was the end of the whole game – and it took two years of episodes to get there. It was fun for the listeners, but it more or less locked us in to a single story line for that whole time. With the exception of a few one-off special episodes, Ditto and Madame Jasmine kept on the trail of Malistaire from start to finish, loosely following the quest lines of Wizard 101. For my next adventures, I’d like to create shorter stories I can tell in 4-6 episodes. They’ll all tie in together in the greater ‘Ditto Mythology’, but be individual self-contained stories – and that’s where you come in. What kind of stories are you interested in hearing?


Do you want more of me questing through the spiral, exploring the depths of Celestia and Zafaria along the lines of the game? How about completely made-up Spiral adventures, like Derek Hexflame, building upon the existing Spiral mythology in my own unique way? I also know many people had fun with the various ‘Ditto-Style’ pop culture references we threw out there – how about retelling classic movies or TV shows as Daring Adventures? Ditto Skywalker and R2-Jasmine anyone?

So feel free to give feedback – Miss Narrator and I are gearing up to start recording some new Daring Adventures soon, with the strong possibility of a new player joining the group – but more on that later! We’d love to hear your thoughts and ideas!

  2. I’d like to hear Ditto visiting Wysteria to get the Spiral Cup back from Pigswick. Those little porkers wouldn’t have a clue how to deal with a Fabricated American wizard. Maybe that’s where Mooshu got all that pork fried rice? That could lead to discovering Mooshu’s hidden ninja – er, wizard academy maybe exploring the other new worlds mentioned there – Empyria, Mirage & Weirwood.

    I think that people will enjoy whatever Ditto decides to do. We enjoy watching his adventures the way they are. Following the Celestian history is keeping my children happy.

    I say for you to continue on with the storyline of Celestia and Zafaria, and so on in Morganthe’s storyline. Though, the classic movie parodies do sound like a good idea. Hope this helps you out.

    I would like to see you going on about the mythology of wizard101…and doing Wintertusk. That would be epic!!! I wouldn’t really like an adventure in Wysteria, because it would only take two hours at your lvl

    My kids love your current format; they listen over and over and can’t wait for new episodes. I think it is easier for them to relate their own game playing when you are playing the same game. I do like Kestrel’s idea of finding out where the creatures and minions go when they disappear.
