This is an easy recommendation. If you like Thrilling Adventure Hour I couldn’t believe you wouldn’t like Welcome to Night vale. It would cause me no end of confusion and end with me becoming some lame supervillain, the puzzler or something. You want that on your hands? I didn’t think so.
Recruiting people to join the Thrilling Adventure Hour army goes back to my answer to day 12’s question. My use of the phase “I am under onus to you” is probably the number one method of getting more people to enjoy TAH. Once I explain what the phase means and it’s origin. The easiest people to turn into Adventurekateers have always been the residents of Night Vale. The whole concept of a bizarre radio play online just seems normal to them.
Choosing the recurring characters is a bit harder then the regular ones. Does the character fit their role in the universe well and do I want to learn more about them.
1)A41397X442 the diplomacy robot that was slowly becoming more and more human, until he caught Pinocchiosis and was shot. I would love to see this character come back …. looking at you Barkeep
2)Donna Henderson friend to Frank and Sadie Doyle, vampire, and mother to Michelle … yes that Michelle
3)Pemily Stallwark the last winner of the brutal sport punishment soccer. She is as tough as they come and is currently the Marshall on the Moon.
4)Felton Lagravenese I couldn’t leave this gentleman of the list. After all he might panic and go running to Sparks Nevada if he wasn’t included … "Haaalp!" … or maybe he would do it if he was, I can never keep those two things straight.
After listening to a few episodes of Sparks Nevada whenever someone did me a favour I would respond with “I am under onus to you”. Many a confused co-worker resulted, but it also gave me an in to talk about Thrilling Adventure Hour. This resulted in more listeners. All of whom are from earth.
I graduate Chrono Training and both Amelia Earhart and her royal Maj, Queen Victoria ask me to take on a mission?
This is a tough choice. I would love to hop in Amelia’s plane and take off on an adventure of chronological importance, but I could not turn down a mission from my Queen. For the good of the Commonwealth, neh the world the bard must be saved.
Plus the Chronological Intelligence Bureau should have that pesky mess with those Nazis and Paul Revere’s midnight ride easily handled.
And Lot’s wife, of course, was told not to look back where all those people and their homes had been. But she did look back, and I love her for that, because it was so human. So she was turned into a pillar of salt. So it goes.

In front of me sits a bag holding an item from the TAH universe. This bag would have to be big, as it better be holding Frank and Sadie Doyle’s liquor cabnet. That thing seems to have a unlimited supply of alcohol … nuff said
