In the barely populated darkness of the Antarctic winter, an array of desperately weird station support staff get a splatterpunk shock with the opening of a Hell Portal and the subsequent demonic invasion. But if the world ends in McMurdo Sound... will anybody else even notice?

This session is powered by the ever spectacular Machine Age Productions' gnarly punk splatterfest, Fuck Armageddon. Chug your Badassium, grab your friends and stomp some fuckin' demons.

Braving the terrors and wonders of the Plane of Animals and Agriculture is no easy task, even for seasoned adventurers like Domingo and Urdan. Will they be able to face down salad veg intent on their lives and still make it home with their Chillybin of Holding?

In this episode we commit crimes against Dungeons and Dragons 5th Edition, and their corporate overlords, some kind of beach-bum sorcerer coven.

In a glorious feast of cookery, wild food and gently trottering the line of copyright infringement, Urdan the Wood Elf Ranger and Domingo the Anthropig Mathematician are invited into the mighty cookery stadium to participate in the greatest culinary contest the planes have ever seen: Sigil Chef! Haute Cuisine!

This session was powered by Dungeons and Dragons 5th Edition, basically stretched to the point it was unrecognisable, grilled and then served on a bed of mashed potato and chives with a citrus vinaigrette.

With the smuggling drop turned Spectre ambush raising more questions than answers, unquiet spirits Riddle, Emerich and Minerva start to dig into the underground of Edinburgh's Renegade ghosts.

Wraith the Oblivion, aka the Big Grey Book of Depressing, is part of the Old World of Darkness range. The White Wolf that produced it is about as dead as our PCs. And we're using a hacked Chronicles of Darkness engine, cause its easier.

In the deep shadows of Edinburgh's moonlit streets, three of the unquiet dead heed the call of a mysterious Underworld benefactor. On the trail of a stolen cache of soul-steel, will Riddle, Emerich and Minerva be ready for the truth behind it?

Wraith the Oblivion is one of the Old World of Darkness series, and is one of the densest roleplaying texts we have ever had to grapple with. There's some good stuff in there, but... oof.

With their newcomer rapidly co-opting Madame Tesslyn's spy network, the Disciples move in to finish the job. All that stands in their way is a high end party, and the mischief of their new roommate... 

Get your Blades on.

Apr 11, 2019

The Circle of the Flame have begun to take exception to the actions of the Disciples, and as problems escalate Vand the Whisper, Miss Ruby the Spider and new arrival Bran the Slide decide to root out the nearest threat... who just happens to be the most powerful spymaster in Silkshore.

Powered by Blades in the Dark. You could be too.

A brutal gang ambush becomes an even more brutal bear-claw massacre, as Carson, Valanthe, Hompet, Urdan, and Domingo tear through the competition in a haze of cordite, lycanthropy and what looks like cambo. Their nemesis is in their sights... but the question isn't if they catch him. Its what Domingo is having for dinner. 

Another round in the Moebius Cage with Dungeons and Dragons Fifth Edition. Sure you can use it to play anything, but those things are probably going to share the Hotline Miami soundtrack.

As another day dawns over the wonders of Sigil, the crossroads of the multiverse, Carson the Half Elf gunslinger, Urdan the Wood Elf Ranger, Valanthe the Wood Elf Druid, Hompet the Earth Genasi and Domingo the Anthropig Mathematician are just... minding their own business. So naturally someone attempts their murder by arson. 

Dungeons and Dragons Fifth Edition... well, how you found us before them baffles me maybe just a little. But that's what we're using to facilitate this session.

Feb 21, 2019

With pressure mounting from increasingly trigger happy authorities, Armand, Dorothea and Ralph struggle to complete the final rituals to summon Soth. Whether they'll kill each other before the authorities get to them is anyone's guess, but one thing is for certain... Ashland MA has a lot more to worry about than Commie UFOs.

Stymied by their wily would-be sacrificial victims, Ashland's cultists unleash the powers of their horrifying patron on their sleepy hometown. Will Armand, Dorothea and Ralph be able to keep their otherworldly allies from giving them away?

With the terrors of the Demiplane of Dread surrounding them, brave adventurers Carson, Urdan, Domingo and Hompet press on into the forlorn ruins. And then run into probably the worst people that they could possibly run into. Yeah. Those pricks.

Jan 24, 2019

Occupied by their usual state of mingled confusion and hangover, Carson the half-elf gunslinger, Urdan the wood elf ranger, Domingo the anthropig mathematician and new arrival Hompet the stone skinned (and super jacked) earth Genasi decide that its time to get some moolah by dragging an escaped bountyhead back to Sigil. From Ravenloft. Surely its not as grim as everyone says...

Struggling to gather the necessary sacrifices for the Sounding of the Bell ritual, hapless cultists Armand, Dorothea and Ralph unleash a crimewave the likes of which Ashland, MA has never seen. But kidnapping attempts and heavy drug use don't make the best of bedfellows... do they?

With the help of shiny guests Josh and Monique, Liberation Industries takes its strange stylings to Soth, Steve Hickey's game of murderous small town cults. 

For all of you who have ever fantasised about murdering your neighbours, then dysfunctional disciples Armand, Dorothea and Ralph are living your dream the streets of Cold War Ashland, MA. At this stage its hard to tell whether it will be the trail of evidence they leave or their own instability that spells their doom.

Reunited again after a tense romp through the Striges' woods, somewhat battered pilots Francesca, Geneve and Zelig make a daring moutainside takeoff, get shortchanged by supernatural high-rollers, and brawl with the crew of muscle daddies who run the local slaughterhouse over a rent dispute. 

Life in Maralto sure keeps you on your toes...

With their rookie's plane going down in tatters and the capabilities of their rotted adversary still unknown, Zelig and Francesca make a rough landing in the wooded glade. Things get complicated when Geneve and her crashed plane aren't in the same place...

After a bender culminating in some ill advised purchases, squadmates Francesca, Zelig and Geneve find themselves once again on the wrong end of debt collector's attention. Despite not really understanding how the homeless mystic will pay them, they decide to take Drifty's offer to clear the skies over the mountain pass... and run into the horrors of both Maralto's magic, and its past.

With their victory over the pirate at the Pontoon having gone reasonably well, Zelig and Francesca return to the Span to conduct vital business and give Geneve a chance to recover from her crash landing. Naturally tensions manage to run hot as the stresses of the flight bubble over, and its anyone's guess how those will shake out...

With Dandy’s return to the table, the Liberation Industries crew dive in guns blazing to playtest Erika Chappell’s Flying Circus, the game of high passions and deadly airplane combat in a fantastical post-apocalyptic world.

In the turbulent seascapes and scattered settlements of Maralto, squads of pilots fight for glory and the adulation of the masses. The problem is that currently Francesca, Zelig and Geneve are all a long way from home, dirt broke in the merchant towns of the Span, and have just been robbed. A pirate raid could not have come at a better time…

Aug 30, 2018

With their exhaustion building and their ties to the world of the living growing ever weaker, the two Corax agents make the final descent into the surreal guts of the haunted factory, ready to face whatever echoes of the past and present remain.

In case the title didn't make it completely obvious, these sessions were played using Evil Hat's Don't Rest Your Head, a tension-pumping horror game of insomnia, delusion and unreality. Definitely worth checking out. 

Incidentally, in the little debrief at the end of the session we spend a fair bit of time talking about a little module by Jason Morningstar, The Rooftop Necropolis of the Blood Mummy, which is also worth a read if you're in the mood for a unique fantasy setting.

After a messy encounter with a projection, Henry and Tyler limp on into the depths of the ghost ridden factory, in search of the truth and their missing compatriot. But as the ghost-world around them gets more nightmarish and pervasive, will they survive long enough to understand?

After a previous investigation went catastrophically wrong, Corax Incorporated "cleaners" Tyler and Henry are sent in to deal with an abandoned industrial complex's ghost problems. But with their own souls already tiptoeing on the edge of the abyss, will they be able to resolve the horrors of the past?

Taking Evil Hat's brilliant insomnia-drenched horror game Don't Rest Your Head and flipping it sideways, seasoning it royally with dried fragments of The Frighteners and Orpheus... and you can see pretty well how it was we got here. 

This is the introduction and character creation for our session of Don't Rest the Dead.

With the source of their tribulations located, the Disciples make their way to Brightstone in the hope of warning the interloper away from their turf. Will wit, lies and contract sorcery prove enough against the power and wealth of one of Doskvol's noble houses? 

Blades in the Dark is a creation of John Harper and is distributed by Evil Hat. Like its ancestor, Apocalypse World, it has begun to spawn a legion of new games... so check out Forged in the Dark if you're interested.
