This week from the
Paradox Gaming Network
Light week on videos this week, but lots of things going on. While I didn’t get many videos published, I have several either recorded awaiting final processing, or they are started on the storyboard. This coming week should be a strong one.
Well this was a light week on Archeage video work, but it was heavy on Twitch shoes. I ended up doing two Twitch shoes this past Friday, the first was my normal show, which was quite amusing considering we went down 45 minutes of bad road. Notice I didn’t say the show was a failure, because the mistake made during my show is an exact replica of the problem several new players have told me they struggled with, so I was happy enough to have made the same mistake so I could better guide others away from those mistakes. So a video on the 8x8 quest, the Blue Salt Brotherhood line will be forthcoming as soon as I get a better map and compass.
The second show was another Trion hosted show, this time with me on the PTS teaching about the fluffy commands and how to get settled in especially with 4.5 in our future. W.C. Fields said “Never work with children or animals” and I can see why. During my live show GM Fluffy decided to go down the hallway Trion HQ and eat Pizza, with Muzzy, or so the chat audience seemed to think. Since the show was interrupted by technical difficulties I will also be redoing the show’s intent and purpose as an AA101 video.
Finally, one of my viewers have asked me to continue translating the skill trees before the official patch notes come from Quill, even though he has told us the first pass of the English translations of the skills is complete. I will be doing Occultism this week to the best of my abilities.
Ashes of Creation
If you haven’t registered for Ashes of Creation yet and you want to help support the Paradox Gaming Network, follow this link https://www.ashesofcreation.com/ref/Jahlon/ and register for Ashes which will help the Paradox Gaming Network. Here’s how:
Currently 83 people have signed up for Ashes via this link and have generated $126 in Intrepid Bucks. When Ashes goes live, this money will be cashed out and funneled back into the playerbase. Purchases made at Ashes of Creation (pack purchases, monthly sub, cosmetic purchases, etc) will be paid out to Paradox. This money will stay under Ashes umbrella and not used anywhere else. So basically, if you are new to Ashes and haven’t registered you have absolutely nothing to lose from using my referral link.
I’m always on the lookout for new games, and lately I’ve run into quite a few good ones. This week I’m happy to bring you Dreadnought by Yager Development. I can honestly say this is the game I’ve been trying to find for years. I’ve always liked First Person Shooters, but I'm horrible at them. I’ve always enjoyed the “World of…” series of games but I tend to get sniped a lot. You know situational awareness and reaction time. That’s why I’m enjoying Dreadnought so much, it is very much like the World of series of games, except you are flying a massive flying fortress lined with armor and weapons and you can survived as salvo or two and have time to react.
While the video isn’t ready yet, I do have a video on the storyboard for Dreadnought. I plan on having it to you just as soon as I can. I didn’t want to hold up the website while working on a video, so you should see it pop up sometime this week.
Until then, if you want to check it out Dreadnought, you can do so at their site: https://www.greybox.com/dreadnought/en/
Now onto the Paradox Gaming Network Stuff
5 Apex Giveaway - Closes this week
The Paradox Gaming Network is giving away 5 Apex in Archeage. To register visit our Google Form at https://goo.gl/forms/JFpUpVlSMBAboCRz1.
The contest will run through the end of the month, closing on 28 February. Given the nature of the contest will need a few days to put the drawing together and the winners will be announced on 3 March.
Delivery will commence after 3 March, however, Jahlon and the Paradox Gaming Network reserves the right to take up to 90 days to make final delivery. This is due to having to create characters on servers, level them, and then delivery
Two really good things to discuss about Twitch this week. First, is that it appears as if I’m finally making some headway with Twitch Revenue. A big thank you to the 5 Twitch Prime Subscribers who donated their free monthly sub to me. I know it doesn’t seem like much but $12.47 is still $12.47 towards my end goals.
Also want to say thank you to one of my steadfast followers Sweettart. She is one of the people who continuously supports my endeavors though hanging out in my Discord, showing up to every Twitch show, checking out my videos, etc. She also did a subscription for Twitch channel this week. Anytime people go out of their way to support Paradox I think they deserve special recognition, so thank you Sweettart, you brought us one step to our goal.
The other, was that I was picked to be hosted by Trion for the second time in a month during their weekly live stream. I view that it is a privilege since it means that Trion Worlds, Inc has a certain level of trust in me.
Check us out on Fridays at 1000 Pacific, 1300 Eastern and 1800 GMT at https://www.twitch.tv/paradox_gaming_network.
Patreon Site - The public disclaimer stuff
Not a lot going on with with Patreon this week, but I do want to make sure to specifically name Jonathan Bentley and Jywert for their support of the Paradox Gaming Network. Without these guys the current five Apex giveaway would not have been possible.
After the Apex are accounted for, the current Patreon Wallet is sitting at $28.00. This is going to be held in reserve until our next goal of paying for all the legal stuff to turn Paradox into a LLC.
If you want to check out the Paradox Gaming Network Patreon site you can follow this link https://www.patreon.com/paradox_gaming_network or you can click on the Patreon Button on the bottom of the webpage.
Got Amazon Prime? Get your free Twitch Prime Account
Did you know that if you have Amazon Prime then you also have a Free Twitch Prime? Really good deal. If you didn’t already know you can get free stuff from being a Twitch Prime subscriber. Free Twitch Games (some of them are pretty decent) and free stuff for the games you already play (Hearthstone, Heroes of the Storm, Call of Duty WWII, Trove and others). Plus, this gives you the ability to give one free Twitch sub a month, which helps your favorite streamer make $2.49 a month at absolutely no cost to you. Definitely a win-win situation for all
LLC or Bust
Right now across all mediums I’m at about $161 of the roughly $900 it's going to take for the legal paperwork for the LLC. I”m thinking that $900 this year is going to be tight, but doable. Maybe a little tight, but doable. That just means I”m going to have to get creative to make Paradox more successful.
