Cyberpunk 2020 – Theta Squad – Corporate Comfort – Session 1

Posted in Actual Play, Fourth 100, Podcasts with tags , , on 15 March 2020 by Mawdrigen


Episode 304

While all of our games are tagged as explicit, this game will be dealing with the Seedy underbelly of the privileged and the sex workers who they frequent. Themes of violence against women and corruption will be prevalent, if these themes make you uncomfortable then please feel free to skip this game, we will no doubt be back with something lighter very soon.

In the dark streets of Night City the Police are overrun and underpaid, Corporate interests are always trying to get their claws into them. Sometimes it is better to choose the lesser evil, accept money as “charity” rather than run the risk of privatisation or replacement.

Into this crime stew steps the Theta Squad, with enemies everywhere who can they trust? Continue reading

Posted in Actual Play, Fourth 100, Podcasts with tags , , , , on 16 February 2020 by Mawdrigen


Episode 300

We made it people! We now have 300 Episodes (Plus a few specials) and so as is our custom, we all drank a great deal of alcohol and played a game.

In this case, Goatcrashers, a game where we take on the roles of Goats trying to get into a Human Party.

So this is how we ended up playing Goats trying to sneak into a human wedding party in a manor house, where something more than just a wedding is going on.

Thank you all for keeping up with us, here’s to 300 more episodes.

PS There seems to have been some problem with Archive’s mic, sadly I can’t isolate the hiss, without actually just removing Archive, which given she was running the game would be problematic!

We here at the Cult are always happy to promote a good cause, especially if it’s one close to home. My brother Greedo XP is doing a 24 hour livestream on his Twitch channel, running from 7am (GMT) Saturday 7th December through to 7am (GMT) Sunday 8th December to raise money for Cleft Lip and Palate Association. CLAPA were a huge help to my brother and his wife when their son was born with a cleft palate, and since the little dude has enriched my life (mainly by getting me to watch a whole bunch of Hey Duggee), I’m honour bound to plug the hell out of this, even though I won’t be around for it myself. Give it a watch, and fling some cash over at his donation page. Heck, even if it’s not your cup of tea, chuck some change in anyway if you can spare it. Tis the season of giving, after all 😉

So they have a plan for dealing with Talithar now, watch her probable route into their domain and drop on her the moment they see her. The fact these plans involve standing around in other vampires domains is neither here nor there.

Also have they really thought through the “look like the sort of people she eats” part of the plan?
