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!
