Dern here.

Clearly O forgot that he left me a spare set of keys to the site, but for right now, that’s a good thing. While our little bald friend sleeps, I’ve got a chance to share something with you all – the very first Secret Commission Cast.

You might be asking – wait, what is this? It is the first of a couple previews that I’ll be putting up here, all letting you get a taste of the Commissioned Ninja Clan membership life.

The Secret Commission Casts will be short, 10-minute interviews with O, where we explore the Commissioned world. This will not be available on iTunes. Instead, they’ll only be available for download by CNC members. Listenify:

Secret Commission Cast

What, that’s not enough of a preview for today? Well, how about the month and location of the first Commissioned Ninja party? How about July? How about in San Diego, Calif. (USA)? Sound good?

Of course, those of you with really nerdy calendars (i.e. like me) might notice that there’s another shindig in San Diego around that time of year – San Diego Comic-Con (a.k.a. Comic-Con International, a.k.a. one of the biggest nerd-fests in the world). It’s running from July 20 to July 24 in 2011 – and Obsidian will be there!

We’ll hammer down the more finite details of the Commissioned party soon, fitting it around the schedule of SDCC. It’ll probably be either Thursday or Friday night, after the show.

That’s all for now. I’ll sneak a couple more updates in soon.
