Stellaris is on pause. It feels good to build something else Stellaris while not playing it currently. It’s slowly growing. So we have Pillars of Eternity 2 and Curious Expedition 2 running the show with some Fermi Paradox Streams. We’ll come back but I have to change some things and that only works with a fresh start.
Content I’m working on: New Stellaris AI Tournament (working on repairing the PC for it), more Strategy News Videos. A little more RPG LP content that I’d play anyway.. so no, it doesn’t cut into Strategy time 🙂
And, for Your convenience, especially Timezone-based, I’ve made an embedded Google Calendar below.
You will find a new, updated, “quick calendar” for download (a pic) below, and I’m also updating the google calendar.
You can now easily support the channel if you want to, resulting in more quality or more quantity of the content. Let’s be clear there: The higher the income, the more I can stop do other work and work on the Channel and Community instead and the more leeway my wife will give me for the channel 😀 So if you want to buy a game anyway, take a look at Gamesplanet (see below) and I’ll get a share of your purchase at no extra cost for you. If I’d get enough, I’ll get access to special, more powerful Savings codes that I can pass on to you.
Currently rebuilding a machine that had heavy cable burns, that’s why the AI Tournaments cannot roll at the moment. Yeah, I didn’t assemble that one myself. From now on I’ll assemble everything myself again.
Getting News from the Channel
Social Media these days is very unreliable, so if you want to get regular updates about the channel, tournaments, empire building events, live streams, schedule and more, subscribe to the newsletter. How? Just send me an email:
I’ll note it down on good old paper for your data protection. You’ll get hand-written emails, probably around once every one to two months, no content management stuff. Cheers for staying in contact 🙂
Supporting the Channel
One of the easiest things to do is joining YouTube as a Member, starting at a Dollar a month (the lowest possible) for a basic member 🙂
Do it here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCEW4dvOsRlAhjtSrwp10H3g/join
Also, once I can finally stream regularily I will leave the streams up forever for paying members.
Then, You can also support the channel via Patreon which probably gives the highest cut for me, Patreon only takes a very small part of your donation.
Become a Patron!
We’ve gotten a great Affiliate Deal starting November which will work for you at no extra cost and will support the channel with a nice cut from the games you buy there. Gamesplanet, the place where I buy my games since 5 years now, has given me a good deal, and here we go: https://gamesplanet.com/?ref=immanuelcan
Gamesplanet gets the keys DIRECTLY from Steam and Epic and Uplay etc… It’s a France / German / EU based company that delivers keys internationally.
Once the channel + Patreon reaches an income of 100 Euros / month, we will unlock a Live Stream every month. At 200 Euros / month, we’ll unlock 2 live streams a month (of around 4+ hours, usually starting at 9pm CET).
I might do some live streams anyway when I find the time.
Other methods to support are of course to disable adblock, watch with YouTube Premium, share content you find great with your friends and of course also the simple Likes and very welcome Comments will both motivate me and support the channel’s growth and spirit 🙂
Thank You in advance!

Let’s Roleplay LP Series PLAYLIST Overview (Currently Running) – The best way to (binge-)watch, Have fun watching here:
Dear friends and fellow thinkers!
Thank You a lot for all your kind words and your continued support in watching, giving feedback, participating in the stuff trying to get going. Also trying to improve things a bit.
You might know I catch every cold there is, and I’m currently trying to fix that by losing a lot of weight and sleeping like 30 minutes more a day, to both be healthier and also have a rather continous output for the channel rather than All Gas / Full Stop alternations.
Also, I’m rethinking everything and the style has changed. While hopefully keeping the well-going narrative style, adding a bit of tutorial-ish stuff in, especially in the starting episodes of a series. Also, relentlessly deleting stuff I’m not happy with and redoing it, that’s one of the reasons for less episodes.
The other thing is that the episodes are a bit longer on average and rather appear every second day which gives you the choice for a longer episode (apparently the need is there, often) or split-watching the episode and which gives me “a break” from creating tons of thumbnails, descriptions, etc… for every LP episode there are probably at least 10-20 minutes fixed time to get the episode out there, and with all the new copyright laws from EU and US, that is getting more. Using that saved time now, when I can, to improve quality by preparation (which is a lot of fun).
We are five here, so it’s a little crowded and showing. Kids are now a little older, still sleeping is a nightmare and the kindergardens are closed for Covid, that’s why I’m taking the kids a lot to help, also working.
A very special thank you to my supporters through YouTube membership (Dark Savant)* and Patreon (Young Skywalker)* – your financial support is already helping much! You have helped to replace a failing mouse with “auto doubleclick” for a solid alternative and a microphone on its last leg – very cool! We sound better much earlier because of your support 🙂

Please continue to give me valuable hints about specials you’d like. It’s usually very good topics and if I find the time and think I can do that I’ll gladly do them!
Happy Gaming to you, Immanuel Can
