  2. Going off past history, how many years until we’ll inevitably see Mike playing Dogs in the Vineyard, Monsterhearts, Fiasco, or some other indie RPG?

  3. First, allow me to tell you how much I admire your no-bullshit writing style: a great amount. Question: is there a chance of a book from you in future?

  4. Is there anything you’d like to say to DB Chat member korvys?

  5. I know you have said that a lot of the Eyrewood exists only in your head. How much of that information is in the form of song? FYI, I would totally back a kickstarter for a collection of ballads from the Eyrewood.

  6. If you could write for any children’s show that you know of, animated, live-action or otherwise, what would it be?

  7. Love everything that you do, currently working through the DLC podcast backlog.

    Are there any big future plans for Acquisitions Incorporated? Is it back to one episode per PAX again or will there be another weekly series in the future?

  8. Oh also, can you perform the ending track to the DLC podcast?

  9. What have you found are the best motivators when working with Artists who’s inspiration can be fickle? How do you keep Gabe on task when it’s been difficult to do so?

  10. What is a project you would like to pursue, related or not to the skill set involving Penny Arcade, and what has kept you from achieving it?

    E.g. involving a skill not related to the comics: You might be a great blacksmith and would like to forge pins yourself.

  11. What is your favorite moment from Acquisitions, Inc.? What advice would you give to a new or experienced DM to make their games generally better or more engaging?

  12. When are we gonna get the fabulous Kris Straub to join you at the AQI Table? Whether it’s on stage or on the recorded show, his presence would be marvelous

  14. If Penny Arcade as a company was forced to expand to another medium/venture, where would you like to go?

  15. Dear Dr Jerry, I’m an Aussie enforcer now living in Canada. I couldn’t make it back for PAX this year, any stories?

    By BrMiles - November 15th, 2016 12:24 pm
  16. How has PA been since converting to a series of contingency folders left by Khoo?

    By Peej - November 15th, 2016 12:25 pm
  17. Did you expect the Thornwatch kickstarter to be as successful as it was? Are there any exciting new developments with the game or in the Eyrewood universe you can share with us? #BringBackTrill

    By Renfamous - November 15th, 2016 12:27 pm
  18. In re: the previously mentioned puppy, did the acquisition thereof result from the presence of the tiny humans in your household? I ask because my wife recently had a litter of tiny humans and we are trying to develop strategies for dealing with requests for animals in the house.

  19. Dear Dr. Jerury: Were you aware when you hired her that Jamie is the kind of monster who puts milk into her bowl before the cereal?

    By Mercano - November 15th, 2016 12:47 pm
  20. Dr.Omin Dran being a huge fan of acquisitions incorporated is there plans for a second season of acquisitions incorporated the series?

  21. I know you guys have gotten the question a lot, so I won’t ask it. But I just want to say how much my wife and I enjoyed StripSearch. The show was awesome, and we loved watching it!

  23. Jerry,
    what the hell do we have to do to get a PAX europe. 😛

  25. Jerry: what is your favorite word at the moment, and what does it taste like?

  26. HI JERURY!

    Could you please spit some fire in the form of a slam poem titled “Desert Bus for Hope”?

    Awesomeness and love for the childrens!

  27. For someone who hasn’t read anything Penny Arcade, what’s a good place to jump in?

    By Josh - November 15th, 2016 12:53 pm
  28. Heya Jerry!

    You and the rest of the Acquisitions Incorporated crew are what got me into D&D. As far as future of Interns go, I love Viari, but will Aeofel ever return? And has the conversation ever come up about actually pulling in Vin Diesel as an intern?

    By T1GZ - November 15th, 2016 12:54 pm
  29. Dear Dr. Jerury Von Tychenbrahenstein: I have really enjoyed Automata and Nightlight on the Penny Arcade website. Do you have any plans to continue working on either of those at some point in the future?

    By Lars - November 15th, 2016 12:54 pm
  30. Over the years, your kids and Mike’s have attended PAX events where they’ve overheard you say a lot of things likely to prompt conversations with you later on, or where you discuss their personal lives and yours with thousands of strangers. What are some of the more interesting, awkward, or just plain funny conversations that have come from them being present at PAX? How do they feel about our having windows into their lives?

    By Owen - November 15th, 2016 12:55 pm
  31. Dear Dr. Holkins & Dr. Holkins,
    In your many travels around the world, what place sticks out to you in it’s interesting normalcy. If that makes sense to you fine folks.

  32. Dear Dr. Jerury, What car do you drive?

    By Woland - November 15th, 2016 12:59 pm
  33. Dear Dr. Holkins.

    Does your crew still play competitive Overwatch without you?
    I’ll carry you during the lonely times. Diamond Roadhog, DirkSwizzler#1958

  34. Given your experience with 5th edition Dungeons & Dragons, do you have any thoughts on the Unearthed Arcana playtest materials that are being released online?

  35. Is it unfair to say dancing Jerry is my new spirit animal?

    By BarefootBaymax - November 15th, 2016 1:08 pm
  36. Jezza!
    Strip Search as a PAX Panel. Have you raised that idea with the LRR team yet?

  37. Hi Dr. Jerury Holchensteins, or eh… Jerry!

    I have annoyed you in the past by tweeting your (beautiful, inspirational, cray) quotes from @ETGames. I’ve never been able to make it to a PAX (yet) but I’ve been reading PA since ’03. Since you brought back the DLC podcast I’ve been an ardent listener of that as well, and thus enlightened. Huge Child’s Play fan, big fan of the ‘Bus, been donating every year I can afford it since ’05.

    Right now my company’s somewhere around where PA was in ’03 or so: we’re two people trying to figure out if we can actually do this for a living for the rest of our lives and pay our electric bills and feed our families or if we should give up and try to get real jobs (however the hell one does that). This Kickstarter for an indie tabletop we’re doing has about 48 hours left. If you wanted to give it a shout out when you get done ‘driving the bus’, that’d be super cool.

    I have just now literally donated to the ‘Bus stream over and over again until my card won’t let me anymore, so I had better run away!

  38. Hi Dr. Jerry – couple of Acquisitions Inc. related questions, i’m a big fan.

    What was your first reaction to Perkins’ reveal of who your enemy was in the last episode of the Acq Inc series? (not mentioning in case someone hasn’t watched)

    What’s your favorite Catchphrase or name pun (ex. Bin it to win it) from Acquisitions Inc?

    Finally, will there be more Acq inc series soon, or is it on hold until next PAX con?

    Thanks in advance!
