Watch Vu Create on Twitch.tv and Brad Does an AMA

What a week! The Pantheon community spoke loud and clear this week as we grew in backers, pledges, and community. A big thank you to all who've been helping spread the word about the project, and a warm welcome to all the new faces.

Tons to go over this evening, so I'll try to keep things short.

Media Coverage

A big thank you to all the networks who took time to interview and speak with us this week. Without your help in getting the word out we'd have far fewer friends here with us today. So a big thank you to Massively, Ten Ton Hammer, 9lives, MMObuff.tv, K-TAM, Curse Gamepedia, MMORPG .com, ZAM, Cliqist, and Gamasutra who all took the time to speak with us this week. Be sure to check out their sites for all the goodies they talked to us about this week.

We've got more interviews and features lined up next week, so look out for those around the Internets.

Brad's on Reddit for an AMA

Brad tweeted the other night that he created an account on Reddit. We can all guess what that means, and your guesses are right (well, most of your guesses. Some were really bizarre.) Brad will be doing an AMA this coming Wednesday at 1pm Pacific Standard Time to talk directly with the community, redditors, and random passers-by. You'll want to check this out as he's strapped on his turbo-gloves and is ready to type like no man has typed before.

Watch our Twitter @PantheonRotF as we'll be tweeting the link once it's up.

Reward Grid Updates

Now flowy-er and with 30% more fiber, our reward grid on the front page will make all your reward choosing sessions easier and fat-free. There's a lot of detail in there, so be sure to check it out when you're deciding which reward tier you want to claim.

A /salute from Woody

If you played EverQuest in the early days (and even in the not-so-early-days) you'll certainly remember Woody Hearn of /gu comics fame. In the spirit of a lot of our community here, it was pretty heartwarming to see Woody give us a shout out with another comic. Please go check it out, and send him our thanks for thinking of us. The comic (which is pretty awesome) can be seen at http://www.gucomics.com/comic/?cdate=20140124

Vu's on Twitch!

So, cool deal here. Throughout this campaign we've been asking your feedback. And while we got a ton of awesome suggestions, one really popped out to us. So, we've teamed up with the Rob and Dan Show to bring you Vu's master game design skills live over Twitch.tv. The show airs tomorrow night (Monday) at 4pm Pacific Standard Time. There you'll see Vu creating all sorts of cool stuff in Pantheon and even get to see part of Terminus! While Vu does his Vu-magic, Salim and Ben will be talking with Rob and Dan about the game, and fielding questions from the audience. How cool is modern technology? You can bookmark the Twitch channel by clicking the banner below. See you at 4pm PST Monday!

Coming Up This Week

This coming week we get to start telling you more about the races in Pantheon. There are five races in total, which we'll go into detail about Monday through Friday. We've also got two more class details to share with you this week, several more interviews lined up, and even a famous YouTube face or two. Add to it Brad's AMA and Vu's streaming, it's going to be a pretty epic week for Pantheon.

In the meantime, thanks again for your support, and please keep spreading the word. We will reach the goal together!

      In addition, if you give our channel a Follow on twitch, you can use a number of Chrome extensions, or use the mobile Twitch app for iOS or Android and receive notifications when our channel goes live tonight as well as every night.

      We usually go live 10 minutes ahead of our broadcasts to give people time to log in and get past any Twitch video ads that may play.

      Hey everyone, this is Rob from The Rob & Dan Show. Just to give a little update ourselves: yes, there will be archives of what I am tentatively calling the "Pantheon Developer Series".

      Twitch automatically archives broadcasts for a short period of time, which will be available at...

      http://www.twitch.tv/therobanddanshow/profile/pastBroadcasts

      The archives will also be posted to our YouTube channel at...

      Woody is awesome. I still have my Troll picture that I commissioned Woody to make many years ago.

    4. Creator P99NysanaBlue on January 27, 2014

      Can't wait!

    5. Creator Visionary Realms, Inc. on January 27, 2014

      There will be an archive of the show available, yes.

      38 grand in a few days? Amirite? I'm busy with irl at the moment but everything I see about this game just makes me so happy. Keep going.

    7. Creator Buccaneer on January 27, 2014

      Have to agree with Marcus. You need to make it viewable later on for people in different timezones.

    8. Creator Marcus Landgraf on January 27, 2014

      1am in Europe, please also make it available for later viewing somehow

    9. Creator Sakino on January 26, 2014

    10. Creator Tom Klingeman on January 26, 2014

      Let it not be said that this team didn't try to make this happen. Great job guys!

    11. Creator Visionary Realms, Inc. on January 26, 2014

      The links for the coverage are on the main page, for the ones that have been posted. The others will be added once they're up. There's more news to the Curse vid, so it hasn't been linked yet.

    12. Creator Liam Hall on January 26, 2014

      Awesome, awesome, awesome!

    13. Creator Troy_Costisick on January 26, 2014

      This is all great, but could we add some links?
