The Ridgearound is a livestream held by Ridgedog of the Yogscast, which started during the 2012 Christmas livestreams. During that time, he streamed on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays [[RealLifeWritesThePlot until he stopped due to personal reasons]]. In mid 2014, [[TheBusCameBack the Ridgearound came back to success, and has been going on ever since]].

----

Tropes for this show include:
* BigNo: During the [[AnyoneCanDie Moustache March Hardcore Survival]] campaign, many of the deaths were met by one of these. The biggest "no" came from when [[spoiler:Sejii, one of the chat moderators, died. Ridge gave a BigNo that lasted over ten seconds.]]
* CurbStompBattle: The first round of the Art to Die For Survival Games ended this way, with Ridge as the victor.
* DidntSeeThatComing: Happens every now and then.
** The Spruce Deuce. Quite possibly the bulkiest most unairworthy plane ever made on Kerbal Space Program. What a surprise that once off the ground it became nigh on impossible to crash and could even make perfect water landings.
** Mac Kerman. His heroic sacrifice in fighting the evil solar panel will forever be remembered.
** Frog Fractions was full of this.
* FanDisservice: For Ridge, most of the love scenes from the adventure map [[DatingSim City of Love]] was this.
** AvertedTrope: Except for [[spoiler:Navi's]] love scene.
--> ridgedog: I immediately regret this decision.
--> Ridge: ... Nope. I have fulfilled my Tinkerbell fantasy.
* GrossOutShow: Pretty much the entirety of his [[VideoGame/SurgeonSimulator2013 Surgeon Simulator 2013]] for some people. Some specifics are [[spoiler: when Ridge attempted to stab his patient in the ear with a pencil and draping his large intestines over his eyes. All while trying to remove organs with a spoon.]]
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: During the Cake Defense 2 map with Syncrasis, Ridge managed to shoot ''himself'' with his own overpowered bow. ''Repeatedly.''
-->Game Text: '''''ridgedog''' walked into fire whilst fighting '''ridgedog'''.''
* LaserGuidedKarma: In the Cake Defense 2 map, Ridge managed to "accidentally" shoot Syncrasis during one of the rounds, and was '''instantly''' killed by all of the mobs that they had aggroed.
* [[LiveEpisode Livestreaming]]
* OurMonstersAreWeird: Cannibal Cow, a creature spawned because of a Ridgearound regular's username, has been turned into the resident NightmareFuel. Another regular and mod, Echeb, even made a VideoGame/{{Minecraft}} mod out of them. [[BringMyBrownPants It's actually much more terrifying than it sounds.]]
* StuffBlowingUp: And how!
* ThemeTune: Although technically neither are used to book-end the stream, ''[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1jJsYbVBnaE With pleasant companions - Go!Go!Carlito!]]'' and ''[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_cqCa4IM8w8 Hatsune Miku - Leave In Summer, Yet You're In My Fluffoughts]]'' have been played so often they are considered the stream's unofficial theme songs.
** Ridge does like to start off the streams with whatever song is stuck in his head at the time though...
** He's also begun to end stream by playing Pizza Time, although he claims its not his theme song but [[TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles 'the turtles']].
* TitleDrop:
-->Cy: Oh, coming from behind!
-->Six: [[FreudWasRight Heh heh heh.. I'm sorry, ahem..]]
-->Ridge: It's okay, we'll give them a Ridgearound!
-->Six: *Laughs* Aw, that was the perfect use of that!
* TranquilFury: During a recording session for Modded Madness, [[WhatDoesThisButtonDo Bebop shoots a]] [[OhCrap Nuclear Cluster Missle]] [[ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill at a platform Ridge was on.]] [[http://www.twitch.tv/ridgedog/c/4861631 This is the exact reaction from Ridge.]]
-->Ridge: (in a calm voice) What missle did you shoot?
* UnusualEuphemism: Ridgedog has two reasons for his stream name - firstly because Lewis/Xephos used to ask if "Ridge was around" if something server-side needed fixing and secondly because it err... almost sounds rude.
** Truckin' Birches. Nuff said.
* YouHaveGOTToBeKiddingMe: Ridgedog's initial reaction to the suggestion of Frog Fractions as a game to try.
** [[spoiler:Quickly became hilarious when the game turned into a mix of [[ShoutOut game-culture references]] and [[SurrealHumour complete insanity]].]]

The Ridgearound is a livestream held by Ridgedog. Livestreaming 3 times a week (Monday, Wednesday and Friday), with a possible bonus livestream at the weekend.
The Ridgearound consists of 3 stages;
* The before chat, normally everyone questions when or if he is livestreaming.
* The livestream itself, Ridgedog normally comes on and plays games (sometimes people complain he's not doing things right.)
* The afterchat, normally this consists of people being on a high since it's really late. This stage lasts until the first one starts up again.

* AmbiguousGender: In a way. The Ridgearound and its attached chat community often have trouble identifying a person's true gender, to the point where it's become one of [[InJoke those things]].



* InJoke: Quite a few.
** People will inevitably mistake someone's gender and then later on be shocked to find out it's actually the opposite to what they'd thought.
** If playing [[VideoGame/KerbalSpaceProgram Kerbal Space Program]], [[VideoGameCrueltyPotential kerbals will die in an entertaining (and sometimes unexpected) way.]]
** Ridgedog will find some way to [[SequenceBreaking break]] or [[GameplayDerailment exploit]] a game's bugs or loopholes [[SelfImposedChallenge if he can]].
** Truckin' Birches and YOTO (You Only Truck Once)

* RougeAnglesOfSatin: Tends to happen a lot in the afterchat, intentional or not.
--> Polterpastry: Congratulations Owl you just made your first type
--> Polterpastry: Oh gods I typo'd the congrats

* RunningGag: 'Jekrs' is going around the Ridgearound chat, originally a [[RougeAnglesOfSatin mispell]], but when one person says it everyone else normally repeats it.
--> Polterpastry: jekrs for instance
--> Thomas0comer: jekrs
** Other RunningGag is "Cookie boobs", and "Moist".
** A Newly Developed RunningGag is "SPAC".

* CrowningMomentOfFunny: The Kerbal Ladder glitch. Resulted in a bizarre gravity-defying break dance party with multiple clones of the same glitched Kerbal floating past camera. Needless to say, everyone who was there at the time didn't see it coming but were glad to have been there to witness this AMAZING moment in Ridgearound history.

[[foldercontrol]]

[[folder:Ridgedog]]
* Ridgedog is the creator of the Ridgearound, a livestream where people can watch him test games for the Yogscast.
* He's known on the Ridgearound to play Kerbal Space Program.
** Special items have been made specifically for him. Such as the Ridgearound parachute for the pie mod.
** He's also been known to abuse the Kerbals.
* He works with the Yogscast, amongst other things he hosts the servers and ensures a steady flow of new content for the Yogs to play.
* He is also the founder of the Voxelbox, one of the biggest and best Minecraft building communities.
* BadassFamily: While Ridgedog's awesomeness is in no doubt, his wife ([[FanNickname nicknamed Ninja-Wife by the chat community]]), his baby daughter and his dog are all pretty cool (and cute) as well.
* BadassLongcoat: For his Minecraft skin
* BeyondTheImpossible: Ridge is quite good at breaking every game he plays. For example, clearing Hypixels tough multiplayer map on his own, while Hypixel just sat there watching, claiming it couldn't be done.
* DontExplainTheJoke: Explaining the joke appears to be one of Ridge's favourite forms of humour. It can be... awkward.
* FascinatingEyebrow: The livestream features a face cam, which Ridge makes full use of in demonstrating his range of bizarre and lively facial expressions. The most notable of these involve an uncanny control over his eyebrows, similar to that featured on his minecraft skin.
* FixingTheGame: While Ridge cheats quite often, this is usually because he's testing a map or game, and it doesn't quite work like it's supposed to...
* FollowTheChaos: As is the norm for most Yogscast members
* GunNut: Arguably, given installing gun mods is his favourite way to spice up Minecraft maps and he has regularly stated that he wishes more people would make gun mods.
* NervesOfSteel: Ridgedog rarely gets scared, even when playing the scariest of horror games. Normally he gets annoyed.
** When playing Nightmare House 2, he said the scariest thing he has seen is his dog staring at him, rather than the horror game itself.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:The Modmob]]
* AffectionateNickname: The term Modmob was initially applied in regards to more than one or two of the chat moderators chastising a rulebreaker (usually due to chatlag and being unable to see what the other mods are doing), but was adopted as the general name for the chat mod group.
* AttentionDeficitOohShiny: A very common occurance during their SpinOff Modmob streams. During one stream, they managed to get distracted for over twenty minutes before playing a game.
* GoldfishPoopGang: If Ridge is an evil overlord, then they are his bumbling minions.
* SpinOff: Every now and then the Modmob host their own livestreams on the nights Ridgedog doesn't, over on Cyborg's Twitch channel.

* The Pheex has been a moderator at the Ridgearound since mid December.
* He often goes by just 'Pheex' or 'Peter'.

* Peter is a farmer.
* Pheex is a MotorMouth, he holds the record for the most words on the Ridgearound. This may partially be because of his copying and pasting. (Doesn't stop him talking though.)
* Peter has shown videos of a man with a horse head doing crazy things. People on the Ridgearound chat have questioned if this is actually him.

Sejii
* Sejii has been a moderator at the Ridgearound since late February.
* She is often targeted by short-jokes.
* Is an Elf. Not to be confused with an Elve.
* {{Angrish}}: While fighting enemies in Minecraft, as well as while being shot with arrows.
