New Campaign Poll

We are approaching a point in the campaign where the group can use some much needed time off, so we are going to be putting the campaign on Pause, and starting a side campaign.  The goal is to have episodes released much closer to actual play time (instead of a year+ later like current releases).  The current campaign will continue to be released, as editing time allows.

What this means for you, is that (hopefully) you will get the new campaign released more regularly, within a few weeks or so of the session being played.  You will also get to continue the story of Teddy, Dr. Jones, Kinect, Lightning, Mr Black. . .  Oh, you don’t know Mr. Black yet.  That’s another reason we are doing this.  We have players that you wouldn’t get to hear for a while to come yet, but we want you to hear them sooner.

So that’s where you come in.  What type of campaign would you like to listen to?  We’ve done some brainstorming, discussed some ideas, and now I bring those ideas to you.  Please answer the following poll.  You can select multiple answers, hopefully leading to a ranked list in the end.  If the results are too close, I’ll come back with another poll after eliminating some options.

The poll can be found at this link below, and I will leave it up until we meet again on 10/16 for game

Character Sheets

A few people have shown interest in seeing the character sheets from some of the Actual Plays.  So I thought I would drop our current roster, as well as the sheets from characters in the past.  Please note that many of these sheets are current for the sessions we are playing now, which have had 2 years of play time since the sessions that are currently being released.  However, the sheets for Valkyrie, Jackdaw, and Zero should be mosty accurate for when they made their last appearances in the game.

With that, I bring you the current Roster of Characters.  Hope you enjoy.

AP Episode 050a, Companion. Post game discussion

This is a bonus episode. After key scenes in this session, there was some heavy discussion by the players about what went wrong, how the group might have over reacted, and the how they planned to deal with those shortcimings int he future.

If you don’t want to listen to this, you will miss nothing by skipping it. But, for those that like a little insight into the player’s minds after a session like this, I decided to make this discussion available as a bonus episode.

If you are interested in this sort of thing, then please enjoy.

Welcome to the Relative Dimension.

In this episode, the group learns the consequences of their ruckus, and it’s effect on the price of information.

We’ve made an announcement on our Patreon Site.  A new pledge level has been added for a custom game, run once a month.  I have a few ideas in mind, but ultimately, The group that pledges to that level will determine the game.  Check it out if you are interested, the link is below.
