This is a near future Actual Play Tabletop RPG in the Genesys System by Fantasy Flight Games.

We explore the future based on actual peer-reviewed scientific papers as the background to our setting. Some of the more fantastical elements come from concepts explored by the modern Sci-Fi greats like Peter F. Hamilton, Cixin Liu, William Gibson, Nnedi Okorafor, and Bruce Sterling to only name a few.

This podcast is for fun and not exclusively a scientific journey. The rule of cool will always dominate. Join us in envisioning the world in which a pocket singularity changes everything.

Great Original Podcast

Pocket Singularity: so far so great!
The combination of short stories, news articles, and RPG actual play is a winner. Pocket Singularity is building a deep and immersive original world and I can’t wait to see where it goes from here!
