I’m so very excited to have been able to bring this idea to fruition! CreaturePasta is an idea I’ve had for several years now, albeit toned down a bit. Every day while I’m working I tend to be listening to awesome podcasts covering Cryptids, Paranormal occurrences, Creepypastas, Horror radiodrama or legends of some type. Astonishing Legends, Blurry Photos, Expanded Perspectives, The Gralien Report, Lore, Mysterious Universe and The Nosleep podcast to name a few. When I was invited on to the Oddshaped Channel’s enCRYPTID as a cohost, I knew I had something else I wanted to present to you all that wasn’t what we already do at Digital and Dice.
It started as a want to explore the point at which my three passions; Gaming, CreepyPastas and Paranormal/Weird events meet. Kind of a catchall show where a primer or starting point could be given to people with a little bit of extra context thrown in. We’ve simplified that a bit on Creaturepasta. Focusing instead on the origins of whatever creature we are talking about in an episode and giving you, our awesome DigiDicers, our thoughts on how you might use said thing in your roleplaying games.
Slenderman was one of the bigger topics to cover and with the release of the Slenderman movie trailer it made sense to do first. After all, if you ask most people what a Creepypasta is one of the first names they’ll come up with is our pal Slender. Mark did some amazing work with the images and editing! Nearly as awesome, in my opinion, as the work he’s putting in on Hazardous Endeavors. That’s hard to beat.
Like all our projects the start is always the rockiest. It’s like breaking in a new pair of boots. The first few miles are the worst, but then they shape to you and become like a second pair of feet- or maybe a second skin? That’s not creepy at all. We’re going to become a weird second-flesh-boot-thing for your ears! There’s nothing you can do about it now! If you’ve listened to or watched the first episode it has already begun! If you haven’t… you know you want to. Look forward to CreaturePasta going for quite a while. There is no end to the things we can talk about!
