UPDATE! The contest is now over!

Here in the GeeklyInc Dreadfort we have been debating about what cool new content we can cover. Then, like a bolt of lightning striking a Bugbear, the idea hit us – read every single novel in The Sundering event by Wizards of the Coast. But we were not satisfied with just reading the novels. No, we wanted to include you, our wonderful readers/fans/listeners, on a voyage through this world of magic and mystery.

Starting next week we will read through part one of the first book in The Sundering series, R.A. Salvatore’s The Companions, and discuss our thoughts and feelings on the novel live at twitch.tv/geeklyinc. Then, we will release our audio based discussion to the Drunks and Dragons Random Encounters feed.

We want all of you to join in on our quest to discover the entire story told within The Sundering and we figured the best way was to give away two beautiful hardcover editions of The Companions. In order to win your very own copy, leave a review on any podcast within the GeeklyInc family (see the podcast feed above for the full list) then share your reviews in the comment section of this post. Each review gives you an extra chance to win! Then we will choose two random entries to receive their very own copy of The Companions.

For week one we will be reading all of part one of The Companions. Week two will be part two…AND SO ON! Before you ask, yes we have more copies of the next book, The Godborn, to give away so stay tuned on how you can win them.

It will take a long time to read all of the novels. Especially since we will be playing [REDACTED] on the Random Encounters feed soon. Expect The Sundering Book Clubs to be released steadily over the next year.

  1. DnD OG, the Dungeons and Dragons podcast: I can’t tell you how much I enjoy this show, it is the highlight of my podcast queue. I listened to the first episode a month ago, and I’ve been free-basing the rest if it ever since. The Random Encounters queue is great, as well, but the first is still the best. Currently on ep. 62, but I /literally/ could not breathe while listening to ep. 54 the other day. The dynamic between pc and dm is amazing, and it’s great to hear of another NC redneck that enjoys DnD. Thanks for the show, guys!
    PS, I don’t have any Christmas wine, but I do have a couple bottles of Christmas beer; I popped one the other night while the wife was out with friends.

  2. For Sayer on ITunes:

    My AI told me to write this…
    Most excellent podcast! It is unlike anything I currently listen to and I find it disturbingly entertaining. You can tell that a lot of time and passion goes into this creation and for this, I am greatful! Another stellar addition to the growing Geekly Inc family!

  3. Some of these are pulled way back from the sands of time:

    Cast of Thrones:
    One of the better Harry Potter fancasts out there, it’s super funny and always makes me laugh like crazy. They get really in depth, which is nice, and include material from both the books and movies. But the pronunciation is whack. I guess the audiobook is different but they keep calling Ron Bran. And Hermione is pronounced Her-my-owe-nee not Dan-er-is. Not sure what the deal is with that but I enjoy it none the less.

    Drunks and Dragons:
    The party finds themselves trapped in a corner, surrounded by deadly foes. Hope seems more die than a donkey in Winterfell. When suddenly the bard begins to play a heroic ballad on his weird, anachronistic iLute. It is the tale of “Drunks and Dragons” and it regales the stories of Tum “Call Me Darkblade” Darkblade, Aludra the Sexy Bear Dwarf, Thom “Bloodlust” Dragonborn, and Junpei “Who’s your Senpai?” Iori. The song of hilarious heroics strengthens the party’s reserve, allowing them to slay the beats before them! Come travelers, and witness for yourself the entertaining and engaging antics!

    Random Encounters:
    This offshoot of the Drunks and Dragons podcast provides and extra load of entertainment bound to leave you throbbing with laughs. They are really whipping out a meaty dose of extra content. I can’t wait for them to blow us all away with Gamma World, Shadowrun and more. The hilarious hosts will always leave you with a smile on your face.

    Cthulhu and Friends:
    This podcast is a great mix of spooky, funny and suspenseful. I eagerly await each episode every week. The hosts are funny and have great chemistry together. I’m really excited for what they have-AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH AHHHHHHHHHHH AHHHHHHHHHHH AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!

    Sayer:
    If I could remember my time back on Earth I think I would have been nervous about moving to Typhon. But Sayer’s constant whispering in my ear has been very useful in helping me adjust to my new wonderful life on Typhon. From the moment I awoke, frozen in my own body, Sayer was there to calm and assure me that everything would be okay. Sayer has helped me to fully explore my new comfortable life on Typhon with important information about falafel night, side effects and determining the presence of bees. If not for Sayer I would have lost my sanity to the dark void of space long ago.

  5. I just rewrote my super critical reviews because I didn’t know where to find my on my account. I still need to listen to the new podcasts, so nothing for them from me yet.

    D&D:
    This is a good podcast. It consists of humour, adventure, and listener interaction. 5 out of 5 Drunk Dragons.

    Cast of Thrones:
    This podcast gives an entertaining take on the Game of Thrones series and the Song of Fire and Ice series.
    I do want to give a small warning to any new listeners. The book club part of this podcast is misleading. They make all of the books seem interesting. They are in fact NOT all interesting.

  6. Drunks & Dragons:
    If I had to choose one imaginary word to define this show, I would have to go with “amazewows.” Whether you’re into intense debates about the reproductive organs of dragons (read cloacas vs boners) or just want to sit back and listen to a story about three detailed characters one of whom has a “Dark past” this podcast is for you! Aludra, Thom, Harrper, and their band of merry sailors never fail to entertain. So download this podcast, have a few drinks, and as always “Keep it dicey!”

    Cast of Thrones:
    In a world filled with Game of Thrones podcasts; one show rises above the rest. One woman, three men, and an army of transitional donkeys will guide you through the crazily unpredictable world of George R.R. Martin(Jar-Jar)’s A Song of Ice and Fire where the only things that are certain is that there will be a really intricately described feast and someone you like will die. The cast of Cast of Thrones manages to summarize and explain the plot twists in both the books and TV show without spoilers. If you can only download one Game of Thrones podcast make it this one, and once you do, you’ll never stop “riding that donkey.”

  8. ITunes Review of Cast of Thrones

    XARO XHOAN DAXOS HERE!
    Hey, it is I, Double Ex Dee (XXD) to recommend Cast of Thrones. The podcast is great – replete with exhaustive insight into the story of A Song of Ice and Fire to a degree attainable only through nerdgasm.

    I’m also thrilled to inform the cast – even the Tim kid who thinks he knows everything already – that I’m engaged to my woman, Mirri Maz Duur – also known as Double Em Dee (MMD).

    Looking forward to coverage of the third season of Game of Thrones…even if my race was portrayed incorrectly. *Sigh,* sometimes a brother is sorrowful.

    Doth Thou Sly Flourish?!

    Dudes this is theatre of the mind that rivals Shakespeare.

    Cast of Thrones itunes review!

    Best Games of Thrones Podcast!

    The book club episodes really helps with the withdrawls during the long and grueling hiatus inbetween seasons.
