The Orc Zone is creating podcasts

Welcome - and thank you for checking out this page. You are awesome!

The Orc Zone is the dubious branding that Hazel and Therin Stapp use to encompass their podcasting projects, which currently include:

  • Interference - an audio drama. It is a slowburn paranormal romance with adventure elements, featuring queer actors and characters. It tells the story of an interplanar glitch that brings two women together, and their struggle to keep it that way.
  • Legends of Chel - a D&D5e actual play set in the same world as Interference. In our first season, three villagers from the town of Bell's Run are sent on a quest to find a coven of hags and strike a deal with them that will save the town from starvation and destruction.
  • Leaf Us Alone (currently on hiatus) -  a weekly, 30-minute discussion of books and tea. We do not formally review anything—it is a casual, sometimes scattered talk about aspects of books that stand out to us. The intention is to make reading a part of our routine, and to spend 30 uninterrupted minutes talking to each other.

With many thanks,
Therin and Hazel Stapp

Everyone will receive access to extra mini-episodes of Interference. Each episode will be a quick look into one of the characters' pasts, or a peek into what's going on elsewhere. (They're completely separate from the main plot, so don't freak out!)


Additionally, everyone will be able to sign up to be on an episode of Leaf Us Alone. We'll be delighted to have a patron as a guest once a month, based on interest. :)

Wall of Heroes
$2 or more per month 3 patrons
Everyone will receive access to extra mini-episodes of Interference. 


Also, we will emblazon your name in perpetuity on our website, as thanks for your generosity.

Day Dreams
$5 or more per month 1 patron
Everyone will receive access to extra mini-episodes of Interference, and we will emblazon your name in the same shining glory as our $2 patrons.


We will also give you a shout out at the beginning of an episode of Interference, just one or two sentences where we'll say whatever doofy message you want to hear us read (or we'll make something up).


Finally, you will gain access to Day's Journal. These are session notes written by Therin (or her character Day, or, both?) during the recording of Legends of Chel. They'll be released along with the episodes they pertain to, at least once a month based on recording schedule.


Adventurers (ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ*:・゚✧
$10 or more per month 0 patrons
Everyone will receive access to extra mini-episodes of Interference.


Adventurers get everything from lower tiers, plus fantastic monsters and wonderous items. Hazel will send you stat blocks for creatures unique to Chel and magic items the party encounters, as well as occasional DM notes when they’re interesting and other goodies. 

Goals
$16 of $50 per month
Equipment upgrade! If we can earn $50 a month, that would help us upgrade our mic rig. We will be able to get a ceiling mount for our Yeti, so that moving the table won't effect the quality of our sound.

Basically: if we're making $50 a month, we are willing to make a permanent physical change to our living room to improve the pod's quality.
