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.

You can find more of Josh's shenanigans through the highly amusing improv group Roll for Intelligence, or keep up to date with Monique's projects through her Twitter.

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...

Oct 4, 2018

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.

Aug 23, 2018

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?

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.

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.

Jul 26, 2018

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?

Jul 13, 2018

With their reign of terror on the Docks having some unexpected side effects, the Disciples of the Depths formulate a plan to avoid eviction from their alms house. After all, they stole it fair and square... can Miss Ruby the Spider, Veleris the Hound and their recently returned friend Talitha the Leech staunch this redevelopment plan?

With their delicious assailant slain, the party plots the best way past the Duergar guards. The plan is more or less what we have grown to expect from Carson, Urdan and Domingo...

This is a recording of a Dungeons and Dragons 5th Edition game, and this is perhaps the closest we have come to a dungeon. There were, however, no dragons in this episode.

Jun 14, 2018

With some of their usual adventure buddies on sabbatical, Carson the Half Elf Gunslinger, Urdan the Wood Elf Ranger and Domingo the Anthropig Mathematician set out on a planar jaunt to rob a Duergar strongpoint. Ideally causing as much chaos and destruction as they can in the process.

These Planescape episodes are currently operating on Dungeons and Dragons 5th Edition, with a generous helping of random generators from across DnD's highly diverse history.

With the final exhibition match closing out and the steady stream of coffee-tequila beginning to simulate the effects of a long term tomato-only diet on the minds of the players, the capers of our wrestlers draw to a close... will they be able to scrape together enough to save the Federation?

Fates Worse Than Death: Rentpunk is a product of Vajra Enterprises, and frankly deserves your time and attention. It is super cool!

May 24, 2018

Having accepted Rosa's request to trash the wedding, and seeing a potential marketing opportunity in the process, the three strange Newarkers put their plan in motion. Will Francois, Stanton and Brian stay ahead of the knives of Black Meds long enough to gather the gym's rent?

Fates Worse Than Death: Rentpunk is a product of Vajra Enterprises, and frankly deserves a much saner playthrough than what has appeared here.

May 10, 2018

Join special guests Sam and Owen with the Liberation Industries crew on a spandex clad romp through ruins of a disintegrating future Newark, engaging in string of desperate ploys to save their beloved Lucha Libre gym. Can Francois the Dragon of Detroit, Stanton "Red Bear" Barbados and Bryan "El Tomate" Middleton scam enough to keep the Federation open?

Fates Worse Than Death: Rentpunk is a product of Vajra Enterprises, and frankly deserves a much saner playthorugh than we have really given it.

With injuries like these, Vand the Whisper, Veleris the Hound and Miss Ruby the Spider could really do with a cocktail, a massage and two weeks on a beach in Iruvia. What they have is two canisters of Leviathan Oil, some hastily trained orphans, a bag of improvised explosives and a priest to kill. 

Time to do the Deep Lord's work.

Blades in the Dark is a fantastic game, and you're likely to be hearing a lot more of it and its descendants from us. 

 

Apr 5, 2018

With the wounds of their last encounter barely closed, the Disciples of the Depths set their eyes on clearing the Docks of their competition. Will Veleris the Hound, Vand the Whisper and Miss Ruby the Spider be able to send a Priest of Ecstasy to their God once the stars are right?

Blades in the Dark is a game of heists and bastardy set in a haunted industrial city, and is a product of John Harper's fevered mind. Check it out.

With the secret meeting place located, our daring adventurers traipse through the mysterious but surprisingly spacious sewers beneath the Hive. Will Carson the Half Elf Gunslinger, Domingo the Anthropig Mathematician and Valanthe the Wood Elf Druid prove a match for the subterranean Anarchists?

Mar 22, 2018

With their path to the planes conditional on returning stolen records to the governors, Carson the Half Elf gunslinger, Valanthe the Wood Elf druid and Domingo the Anthropig mathematician hunt the streets of Sigil on the trail of the Anarchists... though they do manage a short stop at the Cavern to help their old pal Sig with a planar problem of his own...

After a string of downright creepy dreams, our intrepid heroes beat feet onto the weird streets of Sigil. While not enduring apparently random encounters, Carson the Half Elf Gunslinger goes to the murder museum, Valanthe the Wood Elf Druid assists some poultry in need, and Domingo the Anthropig Mathematician does some paperwork.

They call them Adventurers for a reason kids. 

This session features Dungeons and Dragons 5th Edition. It doesn't talk much, but it is most certainly present in the studio and contributing.

Its a filthy damned mess for the Disciples of the Depths in this episode as Veleris the Hound, Vand the Whisper and Miss Ruby the Spider conclude their brutal dealings with the Gondoliers and then do what they can to handle the fallout. This one is going to need stitches...

Blades in the Dark, the game of heists and skullduggery in a haunted industrial metropolis, is brought to us by John Harper and Evil Hat games. It is rich, exciting and captures the feeling it was aiming for perfectly. So stitch some razors in your cap and give it a try!

Feb 15, 2018

Join the crew on another jaunt in service of the Lord of the Depths in this grisly episode of our Blades in the Dark game! Can Veleris the Hound, Vand the Whisper and Miss Ruby the Spider infiltrate the Gondolier's subterranean canal network to find a safe home for the whispering Coral Crown?

As it so often is in this game, the answer is "Yes, but..."

Jan 25, 2018

With gory reminders of the town's panicked disputes still scattered in plain sight, the final showdown beckons for those who would decide the fate of the colony. The question remains as to how much colony there will be left to rule...
