Hear us extol the nerd nuances that have Cap, boR, and Brandon drinking deeply from these series’ black chalices. We also discuss the shocking return of Adult Swim’s bastard child, 12 Oz Mouse, Star Trek: Lower Decks, a forthcoming animated series about the nobodies of the Federation fleet, and invite you to invest in our pitch for a haunted house experience like no other – one that distills the cold, unfeeling universe into one terrifying (and psychically crippling) walk-through.

    We take a hard look at the Paths of Scoundrel and Command in this episode, redesigning their respective roles within the party. We also find an elegant solution to the idea of rewarding GMs for inventive or praise-worthy effort by introducing the concept of Chaos Points. Primarily, however, we give our great friend Katie an exit interview about the system as she prepares to move on to bigger and better things. She will be missed, but the show must go on!

  8. The Call of Cthulhu Mystery Program :: Episode 1 :: The Dark Bidding

    The Call of Cthulhu Mystery Program is live tabletop roleplaying turned into a 1930s radio serial. A cinematic audio drama wrought with unknowable horror and black comedy.

    Wealthy occultist, Estelle Thorpe’s latest auction win is an unusual one to say the least: a collection of sordid sundries that could unlock great secrets… or a Pandora’s Box of horror. To solve the paranormal mysteries she’s uncovered, Ms. Thorpe has assembled an unlikely crew of curiosity-seekers: Moses; mountain man turned renowned novelist, Cherry; a floozie who’s more than she seems, Oswald; a hobo king, Estelle’s cunning assistant Anjana, and Kenneth; a notorious gambler.

    Will they be able to glean answers from the shadows looming over New England or will they succumb to the maddening call of the Terrible Secret of Lot X?
