Episode 321

CONTENT WARNING – Spire is a game about facing up to privilege and power, and doing what you can to pull it down. Given the current real world situation this might be a little on the nose for some people, and we are more than happy for you to skip this one until a calmer time if you feel its too much right now.

The Ministries Eyes know how the eggs were taken and have a lead in Cobasas the Gnoll loanshark, but it doesn’t seem likely that he is the culprit; rather he is a catspaw for someone else. Can they get him to spill the beans on who requested his help? If they do, dare they hunt them down?

The year is 1972 and Dr Sandy Bakersfield has put together an expedition to a remote Indonesian island to look into rumours of strange beasts and verdant growth. Backed by the shadowy Geneveive Dindroff-Menscher of Arkham, and with Dr Nuess, Dr Minkie, and the slightly nervous Dr Salchesse they are heading into the wild unknown with 3 interns and Irfan Rhampattang their Malay guide.

It should just be a case of getting dropped off and collecting samples.

At Least that’s what Bakersfield has told them, glossing over the stories of Ghosts and Headhunters!

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

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!
