As much as I still think season one and two were the best parts of the series, I still enjoyed watching UR and will be sad to see it go. Good luck with all your future projects, Schmoopy.

Last Unforgotten Realms on Escapist?
How? Why?
I am saddened by this, That's a whole one more website that I have to visit? I enjoyed it while it lasted.

Oh well, all good thing must come to an end....or is it?

Anyway, thank you for the series Rob. We hope to see you soon. You and your lumberjack physique.

EDIT: Although, if you sell your DvDs without some extra content, I doubt you'll have a lot of success.

I had fun watching this series Rob...

Whatever the fate of UR is, there always is the Escapist UR archive and the Newgrounds UR Classic to rewatch

Damn. That image of Mike sitting in the basement alone at Urealms really saddened me. We lost one of our best series today.

I hope you stick around the site Rob!

EDIT: well now, after snooping around a bit, I have a question much like this gentleman's:

You know, to all those who think that just because it's the last episode on the escapist means it's over and are sad because of it, you can just purchase a DVD. If enough people buy them, he'll be able to make another season.

Yup, it was the staircase of IIILUUUSIOOOOOOOOONSSSSS!

I'm definitely going to miss this show, I'll head to Urealms every weak now I guess. It's more of a "Nevar Forget" sort of thing.

I am truly saddened by URealms leaving. Thank you very much Rob. URealms filled my days with laughter and gave me a reason to be excited about thursdays. When the DVD comes out, I will certainly buy it and I will tell my friend to also buy it. This show is truly amazing, and I hope everyone buys a DVD so that it can continue.

But anyway, thanks for the great show Rob, and please try to make some more after a while, even though you said it was finished.

...wait, WHAT?! This is it???
I watched every single episode of UR and only a few weeks ago I got the guts to subscribe and join this crazy community to discuss the random threads while entertaining myself with this serie to find out it's gone...
Maelstrom, Timmy the Evil, the gems! Such an amazing plot came to a halt! I still have hope it won't be forever.

I will always miss the wrath of the canadian lumber casting a spell with his monocle! Koboooold!


PS: The image of Mike alone in the basement with Rob voice in the background made me shed a tear. :'(

PPS: Oh yes! Best part of the episode - "It's an optical iluuuuusioooon."

haaw NOOO Captain Tinker-tonk (MUNCH GULP CHEW)WHY DID YOU HAVE TO GO AND BE SO DAMN DELICIOUS (chew munch guzzle) HOO HOOO HOOO

I haver every ep on my computer But I shall still buy the dvd/s multiple copies one set for me one for my friends who like the series and maybe 1 or 2 to keep robs money flowin so he may keep making this show that said will season's 1,2 and 3 be sold as one dvd or as 3 indiviual dvd's will they be available n commercial stores or only from his website and if the commercial case is true is there going to be an aussie release? Cos it sucks paying the postage to get stuff shipped from the usa... BUT I WILL IF NEED BE

2 last points apart from the vanishing stairs comment a surprising lack of the usual b*tching or whining is everyone trying to get on rob's good side so he doesn't stop all of a sudden?

And finally ending what will probably be my last escapist post as it has now finished this brilliant series and I don't comment on zp the only other show I watch

"God do you ever stop complaining? First it's No Gaary dont kill my pig and then its no gaary please don't eat my pig, and then it's No gaary please don't skin my pig and make it intop a helmet and now this"
small qualm just to nullify my previous point wouldn't the pig be skinned and the eaten not the other way around? Sorry but I never saw how death should change ones perspective of eople places or4 things and this show is no exception always loved it always will

Sigh...

Unforgotten Realms was something that I looked forward too during each passing week, and the reason I first came to the escapist. It is a shame to see it leave. I suppose I will have to track it down again once the DVDs come out.

Still, congratulations to Rob on his new job, and i hope it is a success.

look its not coming to an end forever it's just not going to be on the escapist its either gonna be on newgrounds or it's going to be on urealms and since the escapist is not giving him money to make it he needs to sell the dvds for money to make the episodes so its not over just not going to be on for a while.

kijo98 said:
Are you like leaving UR making or are you just leaving escapist?
Hopefully I can continue you the series but it honestly will come down to you guys. This show is a full time job. The work that goes into it requires so much of my free time that if I couldn't do it 24/7 I couldn't do it every week like I have been doing. I would love too and hope to someday be able to continue releasing episodes every week but without the source of income the escapist was providing that just isn't possible without the support of fans this time.

So the DvD sales will seriously determine if I can continue or not. If theres enough super cool fans that can keep this show a float then i'll be happy to continue it as soon as possible but if not then the show might go on a hiatus for awhile while I figure out where to go next.


The www.urealms.com page at the moment really depicts my feelings on it! Check back over the next week for me to finish updating the site and I'll have more news about the DVD and preorders for the dedicated few.

Thanks for all the support guys.

The escapist is making a big mistake letting unforgotten realms go, it's one of their best shows. They're still paying for many other inferior shows including the horrifically bad Apocalypse Lane.

This means that I will be scaling back the number of times a week I visit the escapist to 1 where I will catch ZP and perhaps Unskippable. I suspect that quite a few others will do the same.

All kidding aside, hate to see you go, but you have to do what you have to do. Me? I have to buy some DVDs. I have to see many, many, many various plot threads come to resolution. I have to have something to go with my "Feel the wrath of Canadian lumber, fool!" t-shirt so people might get what it means. But above all, I have to wait for the DVDs to actually go on sale.

Best of luck.

Good thing it's a joke HAR HAR!
I'm surprised that people don't click on clickable things anymore, I mean this is the internet we are speaking of here folks! Just click on the flash animation at the top or the letter itself at the bottom and it will bring you to the real site, http://www.urealms.com/index2.html .

Quote from the site:
"That was a joke. I have a bigger and harder job then I did two weeks ago trying to keep this internet video business ship a float. Unforgotten Realms episodes will be on hold until we reach a certain amount of DVDs sells to let me finish this season and the next! However this will give me some time to get this site up to date and work on some other Urealms projects I been cooking up for some time now. I been saying that for a couple months now huh? Oh well don't be too sad about the front page, I'm sure you guys will come through in the end. I BELIEVE IN YOUR ABILITY TO PURCHSE THINGS ON THE INTERNET. Anyway, more information about the DVD coming in the next week or so, just give me a minute to fix up this website! See you soon."

EDIT: The quote above was unintentionally misused and was actually referring to the title: Now that I'm jobless... HAR HAR, and not the front page of urealms.com.

I loved this show but when they started to copy off harry potter too much the people at the ecapist probably fired him. However i think that if they can see that rob can make it on his own they might give him his spot back and will keep funding him

Depressing, despondent, woeful, other synonyms for sad.
This series brought me to the Escapist. After Newgrounds and your original site were left behind, I was ecstatic when I found it here. And after the show became more plot-oriented than making casual jokes, I accepted the change and began to become increasingly more intrigued with where the show was going. I wish you had stuck to the casual jokes if you were going to end things so abruptly, meh. Best of luck with whatever happens.

It's been a good show and it's a shame to see it end. Hopefully, Rob will pick it up again before a fan-fiction writer does. Please?

i visited urealms.com
So this show is dependant on dvd sales. Bah it's the internetz, this show is good as long as it's free and short.
Free, Short and easy accesible on the site where zero punctuality airs.

I'm not going to a different site only to find out that the show might be cancelled or will have all sorts of boring cash problems.

It will not be renewed. And as Rob pointed out [http://www.urealms.com/forums/index.php?topic=12350.0] on urealms.com:
Rob said:
Please don't use this thread or any thread on the forums for discussing what you "Assume" the reason is that Unforgotten Realms is not on Escapist because I can assure you that none of you will be right. I am not under any contract obligations to purposely say "Nice" things about the Escapist, they are simply good guys and I don't need this thread to become a focal point for hatred towards them when right now I need them more then ever.

Most people who watch the show don't visit my website and if that trend continues after Unforgotten Realms leaves Escapist, then there won't be anyone to watch the show and soon enough there won't be a show. Please watch what you say in this thread because I know that some guys at the Escapist might be still visiting this site and the last thing I need is a bunch of fans making me look bad.

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!

But the show is so unbelievably awesome!
Admittedly the first season was the best but the recent episodes had some great moments:
Like: You Heartless Fiends
Wherin there are some very true and funny paradys of real games.

I live in England but i will buy the DVD and spread the word to keep the Realms Unforgotten, rather than Semi-forgotten or realativly unremembered.

Long Live the Unforgotten Reeeeeaalms!

It's really the last episode on The Escapist. Check Rob's post on URealms.com [http://www.urealms.com/forums/index.php?topic=12350.0].

will nailo finish building cotswell? will Roman the palidin come back in an undead form like a death knight? will sirschmoop finish his his quest? will he ever cast another punch to Timmys face? I guess well just have to hope these questions and more are answerd next time (whenever next time is) on an all new Unforgotten realms. good luck Rob or should I say good luck sir schmoopy of awesomton.

I can't believe it is gone from Escapist! NOOOOOOOOOOO!!

Either way...DVDs!??? WWWOOOOOOOO! Will these be the series you have already made, or new full length episodes?

And will it be returning after a fair amount of DVD sales as stated on the website? And if it does, will it return here or somewhere else?

Damn...I can't believe it is over (for now). I love this show so much. Don't worry, I will be buying the DVDs.

Of all the shows on the Escapist this is the one that they aren't renewing or are letting go? Really? I'm not sure I understand the logic in that, but then again great shows like Futurama and Firefly were canceled and then came back later with something awesome. I hope it all works out for UR, it is probably my favourite internet series, ever.

How many many Thursdays and Fridays I would constantly refresh the page to see the next episode. Really sad ... really sad. Kinda pus a real bummer on what was supposed to be a great day Friday + Flyers season opener. I am really sorry to see this go away, feels like I lost a friend.

Because the Escapist is about Video Games and Unforgotten Realms is about Tabletop Games? I don't know, really. Did Schmoopy take leave, or is did the Escapist fire him?

Wow.

when i first started playing WoW, my friend introduced me to Rurikar, a hilarious WoW machinima maker. i was a big fan, but then came that one fateful morning. i was sad because my Aunt had died, and while i was surfing his youtube page, i found unforgotten realms. i watched the first couple of episodes and thought it was hilarious. i went over here and created my escapist account because of this show. This show was a reminder to me that there will still always be happiness and humor in life even in the darkest of days. I am saddend to say this, but i am also happy to support your show by buying the DvD for christmas. Rob, no mean to sound like a fanboy, but you are my hero.

Carpe Fucking Diem,

ben

Unforgotten Realms was something that I looked forward too during each passing week, and the reason I first came to the escapist. It is a shame to see it leave. I suppose I will have to track it down again once the DVDs come out.

Still, congratulations to Rob on his new job, and i hope it is a success.
I joined for the same reason. I think I died a little today. :( just doesn't cut it...

Something about this didn't sit with me, but I figured it out now. You can't be serious. First off, everyone here likes your show, but you can't honestly expect us to shell out money just so you might, just might, make another season and possibly give us some closure instead for that crap you call a season finale. I've defended you in the forums when people said that you suck, but no more, Robert. I'm done. I was done the second you tried to play the sympathy card to milk your fanbase for money. Darkspire films, RoosterTeeth, Xantos, and Ross Scott all managed to produce episodes (without any pay at all in the beginning) regularly in their spare time. I can't believe that you say that UR is a full time deal. Hell, I'm a AP high school student I've managed to hold down a love life and write entire novels in my spare time, while still getting As, during parts of my life. I can't believe you and I don't buy your story one bit.

I am ashamed to be a fan.

I quit.

Go ahead, "report me" and get me suspended, I really don't care any more.

I'm not buying a DvD.

Well, Unforgotten Realms was really the only thing I looked forward to seeing here on Escapist, although some of the forum posts and news articles are interesting - but they don't draw me in to check the website.

Best of luck, you've got a good sense of humor and create some good stuff, but you probably need to get a couple friends to work with you rather than the solo project, so that you can prevent the burnout which seemed like it was boiling up every so often.

You are dumb.

Say we ignore all the writing of episodes which are time consuming. On average it takes me an entire day to do vocals and then edit them down. Sometimes I also need to redo voice overs or change scripts on the fly and add things in. Animating is a whole new ball game. Sometimes it's very simple animation and I can do an entire episode in two days easy, sometimes it literally takes me into the weekends because of a fight scene or just something I had to animate and draw. If you can find someone who does a 4 to 6 minute animated short on the internet in LESS then 4-5 days a week then super congrats to them because for me it's hard to pump out 5 minutes a week and still try to keep a certain level of quality, that quality does slip from time to time as well doing them as frequently as I do.

Other web shows have other sources of income for there show, via advertising or other merchandise. The point my website makes is that if the fans can FULLY support the show then I can continue it as I am doing it now, if they can't then this isn't a full time job now, it's a hobby.

Grow up. Your in high school and have no understanding of what things cost. For example, the average cost of just DOING a season (Paying composer for new Theme Song, All other musical work you hear, Hosting the site, Video/Audio/Special effects software and overlays) Cost me a fortune. I spent more money then it will cost you to goto College next year on the tools to even DO this show and in the next year I need at the very least to buy another 2 USB hard drives, some new raptor drives for rendering, another monitor for a secondary PC and dozens and dozens of royalty free tracks. Jesus man look at the price of Adobe products and understand I need almost half of them to do my show and they get updated EVERY YEAR. Did I mention I have rent, food, internet bills to work on too? Oh I guess I'm suppose to have another job while doing this full time because this isn't real work right? Working on an animation for a couple hours, having the file crash and become unreadable so I need to start from scratch with a deadline coming up is just "Fun" right? I'm not a super millionaire nor will I be selling DVDs. You don't want to support the show? Thats fine, if enough people feel this way then I need to find another job (Oh shit I have been offered Jobs that would pay me more then Escapist would be declined already?) which means I can't devote myself to producing Unforgotten Realms.


You are not a fan and never will be you ungrateful child. If you had any understanding of the position financially I am currently in you wouldn't have the guts think the things you wrote. You do not understand the reasoning around why Unforgotten Realms is no longer on Escapist and I STRONGLY suggest you refrain yourself from making yourself look even more foolish. Milk my fanbase for money? I'm not saying DONATE ME 100,000 DOLLARS OR ELSE. I'm saying, please for the love of god buy my DVD so I can continue to make more Unforgotten Realms for you guys.



Jarret T from Washington State. Got it. Don't buy a DVD because I'm not interested in your money or your presence and you have totally ruined my day with your ignorance.

holy shit raptor drives? the terrabyte kind? i knew this was expensive and resource consuming but i never knew it was THIS resource intensive to warrant raptor drives. ill TRY to buy a DVD but i cant promise anything, bad economy. but daaaaaamn, i wish i had a raptor drive.

I currently have two in this PC, a buddy of mine recommended it because the rendering phase was just so intensive that I couldn't do somethings I wanted to do.

All the "Special effects" you see are typically .PNG layers image sequences. I edit in Sony Vegas 8 and on my older computer which was built to play games not make cartoons, it would crash during renders anytime I used more then 1 layer. So if I wanted to have say a fireball effect and then put a Flare on top of it, it wouldn't come out and would crash. In the original episode 6 when they totem pole it, this is why its just some lame firework effect because my computer litteraly can't do the effect I wanted to do. This has been changed for the DVD with minor changes like that.

The problem is rendering can be time consuming still and immobilyzes my computer, I have also been at the mercy of "If my computer breaks, I'm screwed" and would like to set up a second PC so I can work while something renders rather then render something and just wait a couple hours for it to finish. I animate at 24 FPS so say I'm rendering out a scene of Cotswell with a couple houses and Schmoopy/Nailo on screen. Even with the computer I'm running, it still takes 15 to 20 seconds PER FRAME to render and thats a lot of time when you have 7000 frames in a five minute episode. So when i say something takes a DAY to render, I don't mean no work or school day.

First off, everyone here likes your show, but you can't honestly expect us to shell out money just so you might, just might, make another season and possibly give us some closure instead for that crap you call a season finale. I've defended you in the forums when people said that you suck, but no more, Robert. I'm done. I was done the second you tried to play the sympathy card to milk your fanbase for money. Darkspire films, RoosterTeeth, Xantos, and Ross Scott all managed to produce episodes (without any pay at all in the beginning) regularly in their spare time. I can't believe that you say that UR is a full time deal. Hell, I'm a AP high school student I've managed to hold down a love life and write entire novels in my spare time, while still getting As, during parts of my life. I can't believe you and I don't buy your story one bit.

I am ashamed to be a fan.

I quit.

Go ahead, "report me" and get me suspended, I really don't care any more.

You are dumb.

Say we ignore all the writing of episodes which are time consuming. On average it takes me an entire day to do vocals and then edit them down. Sometimes I also need to redo voice overs or change scripts on the fly and add things in. Animating is a whole new ball game. Sometimes it's very simple animation and I can do an entire episode in two days easy, sometimes it literally takes me into the weekends because of a fight scene or just something I had to animate and draw. If you can find someone who does a 4 to 6 minute animated short on the internet in LESS then 4-5 days a week then super congrats to them because for me it's hard to pump out 5 minutes a week and still try to keep a certain level of quality, that quality does slip from time to time as well doing them as frequently as I do.

Other web shows have other sources of income for there show, via advertising or other merchandise. The point my website makes is that if the fans can FULLY support the show then I can continue it as I am doing it now, if they can't then this isn't a full time job now, it's a hobby.

Grow up. Your in high school and have no understanding of what things cost. For example, the average cost of just DOING a season (Paying composer for new Theme Song, All other musical work you hear, Hosting the site, Video/Audio/Special effects software and overlays) Cost me a fortune. I spent more money then it will cost you to goto College next year on the tools to even DO this show and in the next year I need at the very least to buy another 2 USB hard drives, some new raptor drives for rendering, another monitor for a secondary PC and dozens and dozens of royalty free tracks. Jesus man look at the price of Adobe products and understand I need almost half of them to do my show and they get updated EVERY YEAR. Did I mention I have rent, food, internet bills to work on too? Oh I guess I'm suppose to have another job while doing this full time because this isn't real work right? Working on an animation for a couple hours, having the file crash and become unreadable so I need to start from scratch with a deadline coming up is just "Fun" right? I'm not a super millionaire nor will I be selling DVDs. You don't want to support the show? Thats fine, if enough people feel this way then I need to find another job (Oh shit I have been offered Jobs that would pay me more then Escapist would be declined already?) which means I can't devote myself to producing Unforgotten Realms.

You do not understand the reasoning around why Unforgotten Realms is no longer on Escapist and I STRONGLY suggest you refrain yourself from making yourself look even more foolish. Milk my fanbase for money? I'm not saying DONATE ME 100,000 DOLLARS OR ELSE. I'm saying, please for the love of god buy my DVD so I can continue to make more Unforgotten Realms for you guys.



Jarret T from Washington State. Got it. Don't buy a DVD because I'm not interested in your money or your presence and you have totally ruined my day with your ignorance.
Is that a threat?
I'm glad I ruined your day, you've ruined mine.
Ross Scott managed to produce Civil Protection and Freeman's Mind (who had the same strict audio demands, even more from what I understand, than you) and spent countless hours on the animation. Only recently has he been paid for his work, but from what I understand he has editing commitments to other projects now. Let's not forget about the creators of Barney's Mind and Shepherd's Mind too, who make nothing and expect nothing, but continue their work purely as a labor of love. Bill Watterson made nothing doing Calvin and Hobbes, but he would rather end the strip than see it become comercialized (that's why he went on hiatus). Each color strip took him months and months to do. HP Lovecraft made less than 50 cents on each of what is now considered his master pieces. Even during his era such pay was considered insignificantly small. The master of supernatural horror died poor. Let's not forget about 90% of the webcomic artists, who do what they do only for the joy of creation (Ozy and Millie was only in syndication for a brief period of time, but that didn't stop Dana Simpson from continuing her work, and she updated everyday!). If fortune smiled upon any of them I would be happy that they would be rewarded for their work, as with Ross Scott has been recently. The instant you look upon your work as a means to an end it losses its magic and I can not accept that you do what you do only as a labor of love.

I'm done with the escapist. Don't expect me back anytime soon.

An aquintance of mine named Sam T taught me in one of his cute little animations how timely & costly making independant flash toons can be. It's like making a comic book...you put in so much & get so little back. So if you want more of this show, you really should help foot the bill.

Here's that toon I mentioned: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zXmNXTn_-H0

holy shit, two? in that case, when you turn your computer on, does it shoot lasers and flames? XD

i am also floored by all the work that went into this. my quad core would have exploded if it was put under this pressure. it would have literally exploded. 0.o

Has anyone ever tried to convert Unforgotten Realms into a full game? I was just thinking that it could be fun to try it, if Rob doesn't have any issues with it, and it's not commercial at all (I've got some ideas for how to do this, but I couldn't find any other attempts on the URealms forum or by using Google).

I am very sad to see it go, but i will buy that dvd as soon as there is a link to pre-order it!

just hope that he will continue his hobby,
I'm defenetely going to buy the DVD,
but I hope for some special extras like BONUS-episodes or something :)

I'm feeling your pain. "Smooth Few Films" did the same thing. They abandoned the machinima series that made them popular, and are now working for money to make a live action series. they made a shitty finale, and the story became worse and worse. They wanted to make a machinima movie to wrap up the story to have the fans get a GOOD finale, but then they got a deal to make a live action series and just wrapped up the story with a mediocre ending in which all bad guys died, all main characters survived or got revived, and even just dropped a whole plot-line expecting everyone not to notice it. Worked for most people on their site...
I think we can call our time "The age of internet series sell-out".

I hope you keep this series going Rob. I know I've been complaining a lot about the recent episodes but I still love the show and I'm sad to see it go. I also don't understand why season 3 wasn't allowed to come to a more natural conclusion, I guess I'm just not in "the loop".

My story is similar to yours.

So, one day, a year ago, I ended up looking up Weird Al. I saw a video on WoW in the Related tab, and clicked it. That video led me to, you guessed it, Jimmy's story. So, while looking for other stuff, I found the first episode. I clicked it, and I thought it was fricking hilarious. So, after, I waited months, before... Well, I'd totally forgotten Urealms.com, and when I was browsing my history I decided to go there. I let out tons of fanboy "GLEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE"s after I saw it was coming back, with super duper new graphics at that. So, I came here. I started watching ZP, I saw interesting forum topics, and it became to much to bear: I wanted an account. Since then, I've started watching Unskipabble, Apocalypse Lane, and Doomsday Arcade, in that order. Couldn't get into Brawl, though.

I came here knowing absolutely nothing about this site, or games, or anything. All I knew was, it was
[HEADING=1]MOTHER.[/HEADING]
[HEADING=1]FUCKING.[/HEADING]
[HEADING=1]AWESOME.[/HEADING]

And so, Urealms got me here. I hate to see it go, it's like seeing your mother pass away, but you know if you sell enough of her movies you can revive her.

So lets buy some DVDs, and keep this show ALIVE!

what proof do you even have that he's trying to milk the fanbase. How can you can you say you were ever a fan. even if it was true a real fan wouldn't just turn on him or at least I wouldn't but i'm sure ther are alot of fans that will agree with me

He didn't put it on hiatus because he doesn't have a site. He still has urealms.com.

Still, this whole episode shows what made the show crappy - how many things happened in the adventure, 2? Shmoopy's pig got eaten and they met an optical illusion. Giant meh.

If it has to go, then it has to go.
I've been watching this show evolve since the Original Episode 3 first came out years ago and I've watched it evolve (or digivolve) into the Unforgotten Realms it is today. If this is the end, its the end, and we can always remember it. Its up to us now. If Rob's situation gets better and he can get some spare cash and time and can afford it, maybe we may get an episode every now and then in the future, but if this is the end now, this is how it has to be.

Cama Zots, if you really think its so easy, go make your show and have it be as amazing as this show, and do it all by yourself, see if you can meet the deadlines and stress Rob puts up with and the selfish and anoying critics that dont know anything, just like you, every day on every episode. Go ahead and do it.

I will buy the DVD as I've been planning on doing since i first found out from the podcasts about the idea of having a DVD. I hope this show will continue on one day. As for this website, I have no more use for it except watching old episodes now.

aaw man this made me so sad to see the picture of Mike on urealms
this show is actually the only reason I even came to escapist at first, and I had many enjoyable days of watching the first two seasons, and then watching the rest as they came out, but now my thursdays will be less enjoyable
Is there a specific reason for stopping the show or is it just how life is and you don't want to talk about it?
Sad notes aside, I liked how Rob's mom called him schmoopykins; it was a good touch.
But remember that I always loved this show and still will even if it never starts again. Thanks for the laughs and have fun doing whatever!

Each episode builds on the story a little more. How did only two things happen? Rob is going to summer camp, as well, the town of Cogswell (or Codswell, I don't know) hasn't been built yet and it's up to Nailo to do so.

And by "host it on another site" I meant one that will pay him for his work.

Your wrong, you need to read the whole paragraph not just the first few lines, this is no joke. Here is what Rob says about it on urealms.com

Rob said:
Now that I'm jobless... HAR HAR

That was a joke. I have a bigger and harder job then I did two weeks ago trying to keep this internet video business ship a float. Unforgotten Realms episodes will be on hold until we reach a certain amount of DVDs sells to let me finish this season and the next! However this will give me some time to get this site up to date and work on some other Urealms projects I been cooking up for some time now. I been saying that for a couple months now huh? Oh well don't be too sad about the front page, I'm sure you guys will come through in the end. I BELIEVE IN YOUR ABILITY TO PURCHSE THINGS ON THE INTERNET. Anyway, more information about the DVD coming in the next week or so, just give me a minute to fix up this website! See you soon.
There where only two reasons why I visit the escapist, Zero Punctuation and Unforgotten Realms, now i'm down to just one. This is a big loss for the site.

I am a large fan of unforgotten realms, and have followed it ever since the original ep's appeared on newgrounds.com. I am saddened to see it end so abruptly. But what makes this feel worse for me, is that we haven't been given any reasons why.

No warning, just all of a sudden we recieve an end part way through the season. We didn't even know the show was in trouble until now.

It's an unusual way to treat the fans by keeping them in the dark like this.

It also makes me wonder, maybe buying a DVD might help out, and rob might start producing the shows again (but this is not at all guaranteed). But we dont even know the level of DVD sales that are needed before the show would restart.

But lets just assume that the show does kick off again, whats to stop him just dropping it all again later? Nothing at all is my guess. I dont like the idea of purchasing a DVD of past shows with only the potential that it may lead to new shows.

I'd much rather pay directly towards the creation of new episodes, maybe through some form of membership scheme. Then at least there would be some pressure on Rob to want to produce new shows, because people have paid money for them. If such a system comes into existance, I shall support it, but I won't be buying the DVD's.

Ah sorry, I misinterpreted the context I guess. Still definitely getting a dvd though, are the dvds going to be re-rendered into 720p, 1080p or are they staying at the quality in which they were posted on the Escapist? Also will there be special features such as commentary that makes the creator look like a douche, similar to what was done in Arby and the Chief (except he didn't release a dvd, the commentary was posted on youtube)?

Also, if you want to remove that border from around the note image (add on either side):

a href="http://www.link.com/">

</a

Or if you never want borders, throw this in your style sheet:

img
{ border-style: none;
}

I would give you the code for the actual image but I'm lazy...

Still definitely getting a dvd though, are the dvds going to be re-rendered into 720p, 1080p or are they staying at the quality in which they were posted on the Escapist? Also will there be special features such as commentary that makes the creator look like a douche, similar to what was done in Arby and the Chief (except he didn't release a dvd, the commentary was posted on youtube)?
Here's a quote from the UR forums by Rob (AKA SirSchmoopy) for you:

SirSchmoopy said:
Haha well I know it would get to some of you fans as much as it got to me making it. I think thats most likely good marketting


I am still in the fine details of pounding out what will be on the DVD but so far here is the currently what the DVD Consists of.


  • [li]2 DVD in a single double side CD Case. [/li]
    [li]Episodes 1 to 12 or rather the entire season of Unforgotten Realms[/li]
    [li]Episode 1 to 12 commentary, two hours of me simply rambling, pausing the DVD doing Madden style pictures and comments telling you all the special little stories and events that happend during the making of the first season.[/li]
    [li]A Roamin never before seen the Paladin cartoon. (This one is still in the works, it's either a semi long 10 to 15 minute cartoon or three smaller ones broken up)[/li]
    [li]Lore and History video. For those of you to completely geek out over, I have a presentation that covers all the inner workings of the places visted in season one and talk about more indept about some things I just leave to the imagination but have written down on paper. Learn about my version of "Kobolds" a bit more. See a detailled map of the world where Sir Schmoopy and co visited. Learn the back stories of all your favorite characters. This might even be broken up into a couple pieces. [/li]
    [li]The Making of UR. You get to see me in a day in a life from the writing process I typically do, to the audio recording and animation (Oh noes I finally give away some of the REAL tools I secretly use) all in a entertaining package. (This feature is planned to be worked on and is still in the "Want to do it but will see" category.[/li]
    [li]Unforgotten Quest History. Long have I kept the secret of the Unforgotten Realms game hush hush, teasing the fans until it gets to a more complete state. Because of this the game has been created and remade over a dozen times and theres a lot to show off and talk about. (The Preorder copies and copies that help revive the show may or may not come with a special Key for the future Beta WINK) [/li]

As for the price I am still working on the finer details but I believe the current price I am looking at is 29.99+Shipping. Remember though that you are not just buying a DVD, you are putting your down payment for future episodes and even if I can't sell enough to keep doing this full time, I'll make sure that I pay back every penny you guys give me. Anyway put all this in STONE yet. A lot can change over the next month so just give me some time to iron out the details. (I'm trying not to rush this but time is against me).
Also in June he mentioned something 720p resolution, but I'm not sure if that have changed. For more information I suggest you check out the Unforgotten Forums [http://www.urealms.com/forums/index.php] .

You didn't read anything he wrote at all did you? The harder job he was talking about was the sale of DVDs and generally to keep Unforgotten Realms going while it's on hold. And site updates finally.

I just want to know why he can't make anymore for the Escapist? Does the Escapist think that the quality is slipping?

huh......oh well.....everyone that watch this show, i believe that you can save this show but alas, i can't. i cant pay for the dvd so that is why i am going to wish that you post "BUY THE DVD" in big huge letters,

and it's not the end for ever, just for a long while,

what makes me more sad about this is that he never gave warning never he could have reported on www.urealms.com to warn us of the end on escapist.

still everyone for me and rob......buy the dvd

Wow, can't believe the series is over... forever...
Wow, wow, wow, wow. It's only forever if we don't buy the DVD. And even then it's probably not completely gone.

Your wrong, you need to read the whole paragraph not just the first few lines, this is no joke. Here is what Rob says about it on urealms.com

Now that I'm jobless... HAR HAR

That was a joke. I have a bigger and harder job then I did two weeks ago trying to keep this internet video business ship a float. Unforgotten Realms episodes will be on hold until we reach a certain amount of DVDs sells to let me finish this season and the next! However this will give me some time to get this site up to date and work on some other Urealms projects I been cooking up for some time now. I been saying that for a couple months now huh? Oh well don't be too sad about the front page, I'm sure you guys will come through in the end. I BELIEVE IN YOUR ABILITY TO PURCHSE THINGS ON THE INTERNET. Anyway, more information about the DVD coming in the next week or so, just give me a minute to fix up this website! See you soon.
There where only two reasons why I visit the escapist, Zero Punctuation and Unforgotten Realms, now i'm down to just one. This is a big loss for the site.

I am a large fan of unforgotten realms, and have followed it ever since the original ep's appeared on newgrounds.com. I am saddened to see it end so abruptly. But what makes this feel worse for me, is that we haven't been given any reasons why.

No warning, just all of a sudden we recieve an end part way through the season. We didn't even know the show was in trouble until now.

It's an unusual way to treat the fans by keeping them in the dark like this.

It also makes me wonder, maybe buying a DVD might help out, and rob might start producing the shows again (but this is not at all guaranteed). But we dont even know the level of DVD sales that are needed before the show would restart.

But lets just assume that the show does kick off again, whats to stop him just dropping it all again later? Nothing at all is my guess. I dont like the idea of purchasing a DVD of past shows with only the potential that it may lead to new shows.

I'd much rather pay directly towards the creation of new episodes, maybe through some form of membership scheme. Then at least there would be some pressure on Rob to want to produce new shows, because people have paid money for them. If such a system comes into existance, I shall support it, but I won't be buying the DVD's.
