    Now that we've done one round of murder and mystery in the town of Bitter Branch, it's time to reset the clock and see how things play out... spoiler alert, it's more murder and mystery. This time, the murders are a little more mysterious...

    Content warning for ritual murder scenes (as in the scenes of prior murders, not scenes depicting murder) and some indirect body horror.

    As July the undertaker's day begins, she's surrounded by familiar people, places, and things... but something sinister is about to begin. Let's see what the cards have in store for this desert-planet town, and our hapless avatar, as we draw from the deck and see where some ancient imagery takes us! Spoiler warning: one place it takes us is the impact of industrial capitalism on rural communities and geographies.

    Content warning for discussion of partially mutilated bodies.

    We're playing Cage of Sand, but... it's so familiar, as if we've done this before... Oh well! In this loop, we're following the local undertaker of a down-on-its-luck frontier town. In space! But they're not the only unique character here, because the cards have laid out an entire colorful cast for us, including a corporate benefactor, a grave-digging robot, and one very moist boy.

    Big Gay Nerds: Episode 191 (Masks 2.5)

    Danger often strikes when it is least expected... and where it is least wanted. Our heroes are awoken by an intruder in their own headquarters; who or what could it be, why is it here, and are they prepared to deal with it? Pate does what she does best, Juno tries something new and dangerous, Luke runs to the rescue, and Pipa makes... some decisions.

My current favorite AP podcast

I can’t say enough good things about this show - a great actual play podcast, playing games I am personally fond of (Their run on Pigsmoke has been great). It feels the most like my table when I sit down to game, complete with the occasional side banter. Quality games, with quality people telling quality stories. A+

One of my favorites

BGNs is a new favorite among the actual play podcasts I listen to. The group gets along really well, the audio is good, and the play makes me keep wanting to come back for more.
Im really happy to see some great LGBTQ representation in TTRPGs.
