Episode 1
Welcome everyone to this premier introductory episode of TabulaCast, the Tabula Rasa podcast. In this episode, I explain a bit about what this new Sci Fi MMO is about and what we can expect from it. Stay tuned to future episodes for more current game news, tips, tricks and stories from the Tabula Rasa community.

If you'd like to find out more about TabulaCast, check out the main website at www.tabulacast.com.

Episode 2
Welcome back to this 2nd episode of TabulaCast. On this show, the topic is Allies and Enemies: The NPCs of Tabula Rasa. I discuss the history behind our allies; why they're our allies, and why they help us, and also our enemies; why we want to kill them so badly!

I also go over some of the latest news as well as touch on the recent in-game events such as the Halloween event, Friday Night Fights and the End-of-Beta event .

Check out the Fan Site (Article) of the Week over at brackishwater.wordpress.com .
 
The theme song this episode is the studio version of "In the Year 2525" originally done by Zagar & Evans.

I also discuss a recent article in IGN titled The Women of Sarah Morrison , explaining a bit more about the existance of this lead character.
 
The Fansite of the Week this episode is PlanetTR , with what is said to be the most popular and most active Tabula Rasa forums out there. Be certain to especially check out their server-specific forums as well.
 
I also received a great email from Osiris over at Digital Hedonist . This week is Tabula Rasa week at his site, with TabulaCast being the podcast of the week. Woot!

In this 5th episode, I bring on Jonathan, a fellow podcaster from the Online Gamer's Anthology for a conversational show where we discuss our favorite and not-so-favorite things about this game.
 
Some of the latest news I cover involves a recent patch to the Test Server which has some really promising features like an attribute point respeccing, and the Military Surplus is finally looming on the horizon! Also be sure to take a look at the changes projected for the BioTech and Medic classes in an upcoming patch.

Episode 6
On this 6th episode of TabulaCast, the topic is The Specialist. No not the movie, the tier 2 class! I discuss every aspect of the Specialist: the skills, abilities, armor, weapons and more.

In the news, there's a new way to get those 3-day TR trial keys over at MMORPG.com. You'll need to register for their website, but its all free and totally worth it if you're looking to try this game out before buying. There's also recently been a charity auction from NCSoft with some interesting items. Can you believe someone paid $2,910 to have their name as an NPC? Yeah, I can too.

The AFS Defeat of Earth Day Memorial Event took place this last weekend. Check out the complete coverage of this in-game event for more info.

For the fansite of this episode, it's Friday Night Fights, which is soon integrating into PlanetTR.com. I talk a bit about what Friday Night Fights is, in-game and out.

On this 8th episode of TabulaCast, the topic is the Biotechnician class where I talk about the armor, weapons and abilities of this Tier 3 class.

I certainly recommend it if you're dying for an almost-daily does of Tabula Rasa news and experiences from a real player.
 
We also discuss the game, of course, with some of the latest news from Feedback Friday and what we see in the future for Tabula Rasa.
 
This episode is also spiced up with some in-game sound bites, which I'm very excited about using more for each episode.

We also read through some email and answer some listener questions and concerns.
 
Expect another show fairly soon because we didn't even get to talk about everything we had planned to in this episode! The next episode will not only be mainly about the Ranger, but also about some feedback that John has received regarding the 50 free 3-day trail keys he's been giving away, courtesy of NCSoft!
 
If you're still in need of a key, and you wouldn't mind telling us about your initial experiences with the game, head on over to Tabula Blogger and send a message to John (on his Tabula Blogger profile) and let him know.

Episode 11
Welcome back to this 11th episode of TabulaCast, where the topic this time is the Ranger. John and I talk about the details of the Ranger's skills, abilities, weapons and armor, while sharing some stories we've had with our own Rangers.
 
Also, John talks a bit about some of the feedback he's received from the trial keys he gave out the last few weeks. They went quickly, but the next few episodes we will talk more about the feedback from those.
 
Also, we read some listener email and discuss a bit of the latest news on the game.
 
 The theme song this episode is "All Quiet" by Versus Us.

Episode 12
Recently there has been quite a stir about a news story in the Korean Times regarding NCSoft's Q407 fiscal report, and it claims that Tabula Rasa is a sinking ship. But in addition to this was the post over at Massively.com which spun this story even further.
 
Well since then, NCSoft has responded saying this is not the case and we'll need to put our aluminum foil hats away. Massively also recanted their story, issuing a follow-up which explains things a bit better. So John and I decided to make this short episode mainly pertaining to that news, since it caused so much commotion this week. Also, be sure to read the posts by John in the Tabula Blogger concerning this issue.
 
Next week (or thereabouts) will be a large show for us completely centering around the Tabula Rasa Community. A few interviews are in the works currently which hopefully will make that episode an epic one.
 
The theme song this week is "Out of Space" by The Prodigy.

Episode 13
On this lucky 13th episode of TabulaCast, John and I focus completely on the community of Tabula Rasa. This includes interviews with the following major members of the community:

    * DeadRinger, the site admin for PlanetTR
    * Andrew, the host of the AFS:SITREP podcast
    * Tony "RadarX" Jones, the TR community manager for TenTonHammer

that's a problem, although we got an ~ 600mbit line here it's not for streaming or private downloads ... they don't check what you do in the internet, as long as you do not stress the lines =)

I have to admit its not as good since Shawn left, he was the reason I started listen and started playing TR, I listened to him on Guild-Cast for 96 episodes, I think the most recent episode was them talking about eating lunch...did I miss something?
