Venturian Tale is Let's Play Channel starring the Frye siblings, Venturian (Jordan), Homeless Goomba (Isaac), Immortal Kyodai (Cierra) and Bethany Frye. Together they play a number of games, usually showing off interesting or unusual Mods for the game, and almost always getting sidetracked with their own hijinks.Of particular note is that the siblings often slip into different character personas for fun, creating a recurring cast of characters and a (very) vague story and continuity.They primarily play Garry's Mod, but dabble in many others, including Let's Plays of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, Minecraft and Super Mario 64''.As of late, Venturian has ended the Skyrim series and replaced it with a LP of Fallout 3.
Big Eater: Sally and Maddie. Sally constantly asks for waffles, while Maddie mentioned eating five buckets of popcorn in her first appearance.
In the Waffle Gun video, Sally finally gets some waffles and constantly eats them throughout the videos entirety.
When acting as Mario and Luigi, Venturian and Homeless decide that they're completely obsessed with eating pasta, and proceed to go on a rampage across town, claiming that everything is pasta and eating it.
Characterization Marches On: Originally, in her first appearance (GMod Movie Theater POPCORN Map!), Maddie Friend and Billy were actually friends. Later videos would have her gradually turn into a Stalker with a Crush a few minutes in, until finally, the mere implication that Maddie was in the vicinity will send Homeless Goomba running for cover.
Sally was obsessed with waffles in her first few appearances, not understanding the concept of more important things. Since she was clarified to be part of the Acachalla family, the waffles have been toned back.
Especially evident with Venturian, who has incorporated the TARDIS mods into both A Skyrim Tale and A Fallout Tale. In the case of the former, Vahl is explicitly stated to be a Time Lord.
Funny Background Event: Often at the start of videos, Venturian (or whoever else is hosting) will take a moment to give the audience an update or explain what they're doing. The others won't be polite enough to wait for him to finish and will often end up being as distracting as possible.
Insistent Terminology: In the Minecraft Tale videos, skeletons are, without hesitation, dubbed 'Skeleton Katniss'. Villagers are Squidarians, and most of the animals are dubbed names such as 'Tree Pigs' or 'Mountain Cows.'
Ooh, Me Accent's Slipping: Venturian notes in one video that he gave Papa Acachalla three different voices while recording the video. He also often accidentally slips into a faintly British accent when roleplaying the American Johnny Ghost. (This is likely because Ghost often appears in videos alongside his British assistant, Johnny Toast.)
Vague Age: Characters like Billy and Sally talk very simply and seem very child-like and naive. But then their character models are adults, and there will be sometimes be jokes about the characters being Man ChildBasement Dwellers.
