MeadMeg ,

Disappointing - great for putting you to sleep

Premise is good and voice actors have wonderful voices, but the script is so bad. Author needs a good editor. People don't say things like "there was a light and it's colour was blue-green" and "I set it upon" they say "it had a blue-green light" and "I put it on". One actor speaks in a southern drawl for no good reason and throws in stock phrases like "don't mind me" totally out of context. And for an inexplicable reason does the main character's chores. There's an unhealthy dynamic there - Black women clean up after white men - both physically and emotionally? With a good editor the episodes might be half the length with far more drama and realism. So unfortunate because there is a potentially good story buried here.

World building, wonderful characters, lots of mystery!

So addictive! An amazing cast with spooky stories of how each character wound up at the mysterious and fascinating Vincula. The world building and creature profiles are fantastic. I loved the descriptions of everything encountered. Super high stakes and you never know who is going to make it out okay in any given situation. Excellent sound design, story, writing, and acting.

AndroX4 ,

Awesome!

I just recently found this and have been binging. I love it. I love the actors and the script. I love the interactions between the characters and the variety. Great job!! Always looking forward to the new episodes.
