Patrick Rothfuss Teams with One Shot Podcast to Explore the World of The Kingkiller Chronicle With New Stories

June 22nd, 2020 (CHICAGO, IL) — Patrick Rothfuss, #1 New York Times Bestselling author will partner with the award-winning One Shot Podcast on June 22, 2020 through July 27, 2020, new episodes will be released every Monday, for an actual play miniseries set in The Kingkiller Chronicles’ world of Temerant. Having sold more than 10 million copies worldwide, the story will be one of the first extensive narratives made available to Rothfuss’s fans since The Slow Regard of Silent Things and The Lightning Tree were published in 2014. The episodes will be available at bit.ly/oneshotkingkiller

The multi-performer audio production will feature original music by Arne Parrott and sound design by Casey Toney (NeoScum, Campaign Skyjacks, Hey Riddle Riddle.) Performers include Patrick Rothfuss himself alongside Satine Phoenix (Gilding Light, GMTips) Liz Anderson (Campaign: Skyjacks, Jackbox Games, Contributor at The Onion), Bee Zelda (The Broadswords), and Gamemaster James D’Amato (One Shot, Campaign: Skyjacks). 

While new to his readers, this is not the first time Rothfuss has roleplayed Temerant. In the years before the publication of The Name of the Wind, he fleshed out the world and tested ideas in private games he would run for friends and family.

“Long before I ever tried to write a novel, I made characters and built worlds for roleplaying games,” says Rothfuss. “Telling stories like this will give me a chance to show off corners of my world that don’t appear in my novels, and it’s playful and collaborative in a way that I really miss. Most importantly, these are stories that will let people spend time in my world sooner rather than later, while they’re waiting for the next book to come out.” 

The game used in this series is an early playtest of the Kingkiller Chronicle roleplaying game currently being developed by Rothfuss and D’Amato. Hour long episodes will premiere weekly on the One Shot Podcast feed.

This story to be featured on One Shot is actually the first of many, as Rothfuss and D’Amato plan to launch a podcast which will provide an ongoing series of similar stories set in the universe of the Kingkiller Chronicle later this year.

The One Shot Podcast is hosted by award-winning author and game master James D’Amato. Frequently host to geek glitterati guest stars such as Matt Mercer, Jess Fink, and Chris Funk of the Decemberists. With more than 350 episodes, they have featured over 100 different roleplaying systems since their inception in 2013, and have recently collaborated with The Try Guys to teach them Dungeons & Dragons.

“The Kingkiller Chronicle is one of my favorite fantasy series, and I am enamored with the unseen corners of the world of Temerant,” said D’Amato “I am thrilled to have the opportunity to explore it alongside Pat and all the talented performers we are working with.”

This will be Rothfuss’ third appearance on One Shot, his previous games including a Stranger Things-esque horror adventure in the Kids on Bikes system, and For The Queen, where he revealed a few secrets about Modeg, a largely unexplored corner of the Kingkiller world.

“I’ve come to love actual-play gaming over the last several years, and I’ve played with some of the best out there: The Adventure Zone, Acquisitions Incorporated, Critical Role and so many others. But playing Kids on Bikes with James was one of the best gaming experiences of my life. It helped me realize I wanted to tell more stories like that. Stories set in my world.”

Rothfuss and D’Amato set their first Temerant story at The University, following students who find themselves at loose ends at the end of the term: juggling financial responsibilities, personal relationships, and their hopes for the future. 

“It’s a college road trip movie,” said D’Amato. “For our first adventure, I wanted to look to the left of Kvothe’s rougeish heroics to see what else we can learn about Temerant.”

“I had such fun,” said Rothfuss. “It’s the first time I’ve ever PLAYED a game in my world instead of running it. I got to share details about the culture and magic I’ve never talked about before. I loved making characters and seeing where our shared story took us. I’ll admit, it wasn’t at all what I anticipated….”
