    Here's another Throwback to one of our favorite games to play, Fiasco. We chose a superheroes play-set, and with our eccentric imaginations, and dark sense of humor, it's sure to be a series of mishaps and blunders. In this episode, we set up our character relationships, and already we can tell that these characters may be super, but will fall short of being actual heroes.

    With two pressing objectives in play the group has to decide which matter is more threatening. They choose to head to the Aquarail station to retrieve the mysterious box, which proved to be a wise decision as they met an agent laying in wait to snatch it for themselves. But were they working for the Fire Drakes, or someone else... perhaps even The Council?

Great real play podcast

Great story telling and creative RPGs that don’t use the trendiest systems. A breath of fresh air!

A fun listen

I’ve been listening over the episodes of this show, and I think it’s great. These guys obviously spend a lot of time thinking about character and how the story can come from their interaction. You can really see how story games like Fiasco influences their play style in that way. Really fun to hear those sessions from their convention experiences!

“Terra Proximus” is a blast. In addition to the ongoing story line, the flashback episodes add some depth to the characters’ backstories.

I’m glad to see the show return with new episodes. I can’t wait to hear what happens on “Angel’s Guard.”
