    The Future of Friday Night Quests

    The Future of Friday Night Quests

    Hello everyone,  
    We want to give you an update on where we are in terms of our personal health, and our podcasting schedule.  
    First, I can say that we are all safe and healthy. We have been social distancing and wearing masks, and that has been very important in keeping us protected from COVID-19.  
    However, as the numbers in the US continue to spike, it’s clear that we will not be able to “return to normal” for quite some time.  
    For us, this means that we will be recording remotely for the entirety of 2020. Wrath and Story has already begun recording, and we hope to have new episodes soon. Thank you for your patience as we figure out the new system.  
    Friday Night Quests will not have any new episodes in 2020. If and when it does return, it will not be in the Dungeons and Dragons system.  
    Our original goal with FNQ was to share our love of D&D, and I am very proud of the results. We’ve received lovely messages on iTunes, on social media and via email, telling us that people have tried D&D for the first time because of our show. And that’s wonderful to hear.  
    But, while we are exceptionally proud of the stories we’ve produced in both our campaigns, we also feel the limitations of D&D as a podcast medium. We’ve begun to look at other systems, but I’m getting married in 100 days, Jay has a baby and Nic and Kelly are expecting a child soon, so we simply cannot give a new campaign the attention it deserves right now. Once we know the state of affairs in 2021, we can begin looking into new systems we feel called to tell compelling stories in.  
    We are also closing the Friday Night Quests Patreon at the end of July. Since we aren’t able to produce new episodes for the foreseeable future, we don’t feel it’s right to continue to collect those subscriptions. We want to leave the Patreon open for one more month, for anyone who wants to listen to our bonus content before we close down. If you still want to show your support after July, we ask that you consider subscribing to the Wrath and Story Patreon. I’m still an editor and producer on Wrath & Story, so I can tell you that the support we receive through that Patreon really makes a difference.  
    We recently converted our FNQ discord to a Partial Arc discord, with Wrath & Story backers joining the server, and we’ve been really pleased at how active it’s become. Our Wrath & Story Patreon backers will still get access to this discord, so if you want to join us there, you can do so by supporting the Wrath & Story Patreon.  
    I will continue to be active there, so if you have any questions I am more than happy to field them on the discord.  
    If you are looking for another way to support us, you can visit our online store and buy a copy of Mortals: Descent of the Gods. It’s an action-packed collaborative board game that we are extremely proud of, and these days, board games are something that you might just want more of while you are stuck in the house. My fiancée is not a big fan of complex board games, but I can tell you honestly that she really enjoys Mortals, and we’ve played it a lot the past few months.  
    We are so intensely proud of the episodes we have produced for both campaigns, and we hope they speak to you as well. We know this is disappointing news, but we truly believe this is the right decision.  
    Thank you so much for listening.  
    Stay safe, we love you, and play safe and have fun.  
    Bye, everybody.

Nathan L Webster ,

The amazing universe of Friday Night Quests

A truly amazing podcast from the start and hopefully forever…filled full of adventure, humour and shenanigans. The cast and special guests will keep you enthralled as their characters not only discover themselves but the unravelling adventure into the unknown. Thank you to all the team and guest from “Friday Night Quest” you have given me so many laughs and ‘yes’ a tear.

Deityrob ,

Constantly laughing, gave me the confidence to play and DM

Puts me in stiches constantly. Enjoying this immensely

After listening to a fair few seasons, I was able to join my first adventurers league game and have been playing 3 games a fortnight and DMing 1.

If you haven’t listened your missing out

CottonEdge ,

Fantastic storytelling

FNQ is by far one of my favourite podcasts, perhaps even stories, of all time. This podcast is produced with such care and dedication and ingenuity, and it really shines through in every episode! The regulars and guests are all hilarious, charismatic and easy to listen to, and its so easy to get swept up in their adventures. One thing I love about this podcast is its balance - between light and dark; humour and the very, very serious; glory and flaws. The result is a very real, three dimensional world populated with very real characters, which still affords a great deal of escapism and entertainment!

I sincerely uphold this to be one of the best podcasts on the market and cannot recommend it highly enough!
