Image of some of the Special Offer perks for all $5 and up supporters.

A giant shout of thanks to everyone who became a supporter or upped their pledge. You truly surprised us and we are humbled by your continued support.

As of January 12, every active patron at the $5 or higher level will be receiving the Special Offer perks.

So what are the perks? We’ve got the Axe and Crown button, the Axe and Crown coaster and the Alba Salix sticker. But wait, that’s only three tiers and we reached tier 4. What’s up with that?

We never planned for a fourth tier, so we had to scramble. We considered creating another button or sticker, but then we realized we had something even better. Many months back, we brought the End of Time and Other Bothers table together to create a mini-episode, and it was probably one of the funniest things we ever recorded. But things went off the rails at the end and Sean ended up changing the storyverse so drastically that we shelved the episode, expecting to never release it.

But Eli came up with a way to record three additional lines at the end and save the episode. So this is now the tier 4 reward and it will be coming out in about two weeks for all $5 and up supporters. Right now, the working title for this strange little bonus episode is: Swamp Thing.

We are just waiting on new envelopes to arrive and we will get the physical goods from the special offer into the mail.

And we’re also sending out our mystery packages to our $10 and up supporters. These are a little bit less of a mystery this time because of the Special Offer. You’re going to get a few more of the Special Offer items and we also have a couple nice things just for our Benefactors and Nobility level patrons.

We want to close by saying again how much we value you and your support. It truly makes a difference and allows us to devote more time to creating these stories.

In Episode 1 of The End of Time and Other Bothers, Blat gets a call on the Speechifyer. Here’s what may have happened just prior to that call.

Floor D7, Room 392, Balgem HQ, Downtown Steadfast. Office of the Assistant Manager of Filing and Operations, Central Region.


(on the Speechifyer)

Ha! Yeah, that was a great game last night!


(sticks her head into the room)

Mr. Heath? I’m sorry, sir, but there’s—


Hold on, Bob.

(covers mouthpiece)

Cheryl, what did I tell you about interrupting me?


I’m sorry, Mr. Heath, but the—


I’m sorry? I’M SORRY?! Cheryl, we’ll talk about this AFTER I get off this call.


Yes, sir.

The main characters from Other Bothers go exploring

It’s here. It cannot be postponed any longer. It is The End of Time and Other Bothers, an improvised fantasy roleplaying audio drama set in the world of Alba Salix.

“You’ve never heard anything quite like this, I promise.”
- David Rheinstrom from Radio Drama Revival

“Funny and surprisingly captivating.”
- Zimbellina from

“It’s a genuine new story told using exciting roleplay techniques told with passion and enthusiasm”
- Gavin from The Pod Report

Want the goods?

In episode 1, you’ll meet Blat, a half-demon who just wants to fit in with his fellow file clerks despite his penchant for sulphuric soup and hot coal massages. He was sure that he’d reached the pinnacle of satisfaction in life and had already filed his hopes and dreams under ‘A’ for Attained. Then along came that pesky end of time.

You’ll be tempted to sit down for fairycakes and buttercup tea with Eggerton, a flightless fairy who could chat the ears off a field of corn. He’s a pie chart lover who prefers to put the Personal in Public Relations Professional, and manages to put a positive spin on everything from not-quite-bright enough rainbows to the annihilation of all that is, was and could be.

Rounding out our intrepid trio is Darcy Kimble, a human who most definitely has not attained job satisfaction but would think twice before checking the “Heroic Saviour” box on her life goals list. She enjoys centaur clubs, the latest tunes from TekTrollTonic and NOT witnessing the end of life as she knows it.

We invite you to join us for The End of Time and Other Bothers as we navigate Game Master Sean Howard’s richly realized world… a world he apparently plans to destroy. But never fear. With wittery, whimsy and team-building exercises our adventurers will endeavour to save the universe!

This improvisation-first fantasy roleplaying audio drama can be heard every two weeks with each new episode released on Sundays.

Listen to Episode 1 today at, or search for The End of Time and Other Bothers in the podcast app of your choice.

If you don’t tune in, you’ll have no idea what pneumatic tubes, centaur pants and an uplifting slideshow about a devastating explosion have in common!! You don’t want to be THAT person, do you?

The creators of Alba Salix, Royal Physician and The Axe & Crown are excited to announce a brand-new podcast set in the fairytale kingdom of Farloria. But this one’s got a twist. Nobody knows what’s going to happen… least of all the participants!

The End of Time and Other Bothers is an improvised fantasy roleplaying game set in the world of Alba Salix. Producer extraordinaire Sean Howard emerges from behind the scenes to head up this new adventure as the Game Master.

It’s a tale of minotaurs, fairy cakes and cafeteria line workers, dystopian empires, magical waterfalls and mysterious books. Oh, and the end of time—that’s in there somewhere too.

So join us on April 15th to hear how a half-demon, a flightless fairy and a lowly human negotiate the pitfalls and perils of a world gone mad. They have no idea what will be thrown at them and Sean has no idea what they’ll throw back.

This improvised fantasy roleplaying game can be heard every two weeks with each new episode released on Sundays.

If you don’t tune in, you’ll have no idea what pneumatic tubes, fae stones and centaur pants have in common! You don’t want to be THAT person, do you?

Every Monday, Sean and Eli host a Twitter chat where we interview and highlight a comedy writer and their work. As comedy writers, it is easy to think of our work as beneath the other great forms, but it is not. It is an art form that plays a critical role in our society.

(W)e’ve been led to believe that drama is the truth, and comedy is just silliness and gags.

But drama actually tells a lie. It’s a beautiful lie, but it leaves out the messy parts of being human.
