Behind the Screen #1 | DMing vs Playing, Making a Campaign

Behind the Screen #2 | Famous NPCs, Extended Universes
Tessa and Val discuss how to incorporate famous NPCs into your campaigns and creating extended universes. (Recorded in October 2022).
Restoration Prologue | The Company Picnic
Everyone loves to hate a company picnic--the stilted conversations with coworkers, the "thrilling" teambuilding exercises, the potato salad that's been in the sun a little too long... Luckily--I mean "unfortunately"--that experimental creature got out and three APTAP agents worked together to stop their rampage before it affected the photo booth--or worse, the dessert table.
Restoration #1 | The Field Test
Make sure your paperwork is in order: after how well they worked together at the picnic--and frankly because everyone is desperate to get The Boy away from the artificing labs after what happened last time--APTAP has decided to run a Field Test. There's a portal open near the city library and rumors of a pest problem in the history section.
Restoration #2 | The Monsters in the Market
With the explosion at headquarters, our team has been hurriedly promoted to field agents--despite their Handler's protests they aren't ready. While more experienced teams handle the missions further afield and the investigation into the explosion, Chaz, Sarathiel, and Gwen are sent to The Market to check out a portal.
Restoration #3 | Griffons, Spiders, & Healers (oh my)
Discover what the monsters are: check. Figure out where the monsters are: check. Come up with a plan--wait, Sarathiel come back! The team clears a pair of griffons out of the market, then heads back to the aux buildings and campus for some well-needed rest.
