It’s new beginnings for North by North Quest… well, kinda.
NxNQ has an exciting announcement to make. We will be releasing four NEW, bonus episodes Wednesday, July 26th entitled “The Origin Stories”. These episodes will replace our original Prologue Series, and provide a more connected story of how our characters find their adventure.
But wait?! Does that mean NxNQ’s story genesis will be changing? Well, yes. Yes it does. Let us explain.
Due to technical difficulties as well as a shift from SoundCloud to Lybsin, the original Prologue Episodes (1-4) have been lost. (Please note: content is no longer available on SoundCloud)
North by North Quest at its core is focused on storytelling. Our interests are deeply rooted in providing the most compelling and cohesive story we can for our listeners. We have never claimed to be an actual play podcast, and (in complete transparency) we never wanted to be. These new Origin Stories have allowed us to re-craft a more interesting and cohesive beginning to North by North Quest.
We were terribly sad for the loss of the original 1-4 episodes, but in our opinion the new Origin Stories are some of our best work yet. We’ve stayed true to the NxNQ canon while also answering for many of the gaps between our DM changeover and some questionable character beginnings.
So what does this mean for you as a listener? Well, a few things:
- You will have four new/short episodes to listen to. YAY for new content! In total all four will equal (approximately) two full NxNQ episodes. Make sure to leave us feedback on Twitter (@NxNQuest) or rate us on iTunes. We want to know what you think.
- You will have a chance to listen to a one-on-one episodes with each character. Yeah, we know… it’s gonna be pretty cool.
- You should refresh your feed. We had to change the intro to Episode 5 & 7 for cohesive purposes. If you downloaded these episodes previously you may want to delete them and download again. This should refresh your feed to the most updated content.
- If you’re new to NxNQ… welcome! This means you’re a fresh audience member ready to start our storytelling podcast from the beginning. (We’re kinda jealous.)
For all of you out there who have supported us from the beginning, we can’t thank you enough. We know this whole thing may be a little out of the norm, but it is our hope that this new content will bring our listeners closer and deeper into the NxNQ story.
