300 Gaming Videos/How It All Started

I'm celebrating my 300th video on the Gaming Channel!

I of course have put up quite a lot on the Duz Andy Know? and Life On Rob channels too, and those aren't counted! But it's nice to see that number all in one place in my uploads.

As I look back on how I developed the content on the channel I remember having it for some time without
feeling the need to put up any sorts of videos. Then we started gaming in Warhammer Fantasy RPG 2nd Edition. It was a great game for us and I began collecting together the events of our adventures as an ongoing story. I then put this story up on YouTube as a spoken word collection. It now stands in its finished state as Their Fated Travels...
98 videos long and about 18 hours of playlist!

...Chances are that this story will continue somewhen...

 The RPG gaming community affectionately referred to as the "RPG Brigade" by the gaming populace really started to take off, with some great videos and fantastic channels of content.
This made me realise that I had things to say about the gaming I did as well, so from there, based off the the fabulous inspiration of those initial pioneers (many of which no longer make videos) my new focus for gaming videos on the channel came into sharp form.

From there I've been making videos on our Warhammer 40k Dark Heresy campaign and Dragon Age RPG (my personal favourite) sessions.
Then of course I have also been making the more generically centred 'Gaming Talk' episodes where I discuss facets of gaming that all system's players can refer to.

What happens next? Where do we go from here? I've always tried to pioneer new things for myself and to push the envelope of how things are done, bit by bit from time to time, just to keep things fresh. I quite honestly don't know what will happen next - if a time will come when it all ends or if a time comes when I start making videos of a completely different type again on the channel. Only time will tell, as there is no definitive plan in place.

I set up the beginnings of a webstore directly linked to my channel. Perhaps that is one avenue that will be prone to expand somewhen.

Anyway, that's enough from me, take care everyone and, as always,

I'LL SEE YOU AT THE TABLE!
