    This week we warm up by going back to the colosseum and take on another opponent before we face a "familiar face" to close out Act 2. What will happen once we face this shadow stalker as we "Level Up" into Act 3?!
    Also I want to announce to everyone that at the end of next week's episode I'll have viewers vote on what adventure we should take in Episode 19. Also it will mark the third and final DQ bookmark giveaway for the series. When you vote, you'll gain an entry and we'll pull one at random regardless of what option gets the most votes.
    Then stay tuned until the finale as we'll send one lucky viewer their own copy of DestinyQuest "The Legion of Shadow" as well as a couple other announcements to make as we get closer to the end of Act 3.
    And again I want to say "thank you" to everyone that watches the series. We are having such a fun time providing this content for Michael and YouTube. Hopefully by the end of the series I'll have the episodes just the way I want them. It's definitely been a learning process since I had no background in film editing before this project. I really appreciate everyone that has stuck it out and watched our episodes evolve into what they are becoming.

    Act 3 is more linear than the others so I'd say theres only one efficient way to tackle the quests -

    Green quest
    orange quest waking the dead (good loot)
    orange quest winter hill (this is hard so you need loot for it!)
    blue quest
    red quest
    boss fight

    Visit waldo at 783 to buy upgrades. He has really great stuff if you have the gold.

    Legendary monsters I am less sure about advising on. Tackle each one as your speed matches or is better. They have good loot so I wouldn't skip them like you have on previous acts. As a rogue you really want to get mortician's scalpel from the mad doctor (557).

    Act 3 gets hard so can't wait to see how it goes!

    Thanks, Shadowsam! I'll let Sydney know about Waldo to start Act 3. She loves getting more loot!
    In regards to the Legendary monsters - we've had to pick and choose what to film each episode because we really could make this series 40+ episodes or more if we really wanted. And while that would be great, I do have convention commitments this spring, summer and fall. I know that once spring comes around my free time to film, edit, post, etc will become less and less. My goal is to have season 1 all wrapped up by April in time for our first convention. That would put season 1 around the 24-25 episode mark I hope.
    I came up with the idea for this series for 2 reasons - 1. Because these books are just terrific and more people need to know about them. 2. A project for us to keep us busy during the slower winter months here.
    What I didn't anticipate was filming, editing, post work, etc. These episodes take a lot more time to create than they started out and, while I don't mind that it takes me longer getting them out, a week at a time is sometimes a challenge because of life events and real world responsibilities. Also I didn't know much about film editing when I started this project and it's been a learning process for me as we keep going through the series.
    Just to explain the process a little: what appears as 35-45 minutes is actually close to a couple hours of filming and a full evening's worth of editing (and adding sound fx if you watched this week's episode). Again, I'm not complaining. I'm just explaining the process.
    Then you have a situation like last Thursday where I hit the upload to YouTube button as soon as I got home from work and three times halfway through the upload process (which takes several hours) it fails to upload so I was up until 12:30AM getting it on YouTube.
    Then there has been some other personal things that have been going on while filming this season that I've tried not to effect the uploading schedule. Which maybe I'll let viewers know about when we film the finale. Let's just say last November and January were hard months for our family.
    All of this is just my way saying - while we'd love to cover everything in LoS we just can't. Also it's my way of also explaining to you all that when you watch an episode and we say we really appreciate you watching, we do, because this series is something that we put a lot of work on. Every time an episode gets more views or "likes" it really means a lot to us.

    Point made! Yes it is easy to forget all the work involved. Appreciate it as I enjoy watching!

    This week we start Act 3. We familiar ourselves with the camp, get some information and challenge one of the trainers to a fight. Will our new skills come in handy as we set off into The Bone Fields?!
    Episode 18: "Act 3 Begins"

  • Re: Destiny Quest Legion of Shadow YouTube series

    Programming alert! No new Page Flippers this week. Sydney has school vacation and she has been busy at friends' houses. We'll resume again next week. This will give everyone a chance to catch up on our first episode of act 3 and vote on which quest we should do the following episode. Thanks!
