Episode 228
Audio Note: We had an extra person so we had to get out an extra chair and it seems like that wasn’t one of the silenced ones. I’ve taken as much of the creaking as I could out!

Final Girl again, as this time we look in on the New Zealand backed McNeil base down on Antarctica. With surfer girls, gun obsessed security guys, and a guy who thinks penguins are “kinda sexy if you look at them right”. If this wasn’t bad enough it seems like the nearby US research station has just exploded, sure do hope than no THING happened to it.

See what I did there?

Episode 227
Our beleaguered investigators have made it onto the train back to London, but somewhere aboard is both Mehmet Makryat and the Sedefkar Simulacrum. Worse given the abilities of the Simulacrum they have little to know idea who on the train Makryat now is. Could it be the Italian Opera singer determined to learn Chesters voice? Or perhaps the randy explorer trying to force his way into the ladies room. Who knows?

Worse Makryat knows exactly who they are and it is only a matter of time before he strikes, if the degeneration doesn’t kill them first.

Episode 226
First off, we still had freezer blocks, I’ve tried to reduce the squelching.

The Inquisitorial team have captured one assailant but it seems that the attempted train hijacking must have had more people on the job. Can paperwork reveal what is going on, or possibly imtimidation with shotguns. Can the Agents get to the bottom of the mystery.

Also, why is that crate coughing?

Episode 224
First off, we tried a different way of keeping cool when recording as we realised a fan would be way too loud. Sadly it turns out the Freezer blocks were very loud so there are a few crinkling plastic sounds and fluidic squelchings. I have tried to remove them as much as possible but some still remain as people were talking.

Onto the Game! Join us as we play Dark Heresy 1st Edition and we join our characters as they do that most mundane of things, catching a train. However this is the Dark Future of the Imperium so obviously heresy is lurking all around, but these people are servants of the Inquisition so if anything does raise its head they can shoot it off.

Hopefully.

Episode 221
With Aktar having led them directly to the Shunned Mosque the Investigators realise like the odds are very against them. Undaunted they decide to try anyway, after all the very fate of the world is hanging in the balance.

What could possibly go wrong. Well it could all revolve around Errol and his general level of competence. Or it could even be a stealth mission where everyone has brought a large gun apart from Chester.

Can Aktar lead them to victory, or are there other dark forces at play that will bring them all to ruin?

Episode 217
With cryptids being grabbed by what might be a government body, the band of miscreants tries to work out what they intend to do about it. The White Council is far to busy, and smashing into the Shard to force the Lawyer to free them is likely not going to work. Given there are intelligent cryptids being held the miscreants are unwilling to let it slide and a plan takes form.

A Bad Plan

A terrible plan.

Can anyone say “Prison Break”?

Having found out that the Scrolls of the Sedefkar Simulacrum were not in the Topkapi Palace seemingly having been donated by Garaznet and then seemingly stolen by Selim Makryat.

Lost and confused they decide to engage in some Grave Rubbing in the hopes that Garaznet’s grave can give them some clues. With the back up plan of changing the vowel and engaging in Grave Robbing.

Of course this depends on if their Dice stop trying to kill them!

Randy may have blown up a boat to kill the Chupacabra, but it seems like that isn’t the end of the problem as a bunch of military guys and a lawyer turn up and start loading all of the cryptids (including the sentient ones) into large vans and whisking them away to… gods know where.

Anthea is unimpressed to be overruled, and everyone else is worried about the question of who is next.

So they decide to do something about it. Probably something risky and ill thought out.

Firstly Mawdrigen and Sheba went to Georgia (the country not the state) and came back with tea that we reviewed.

But that is just a momentary distraction from the death and destruction that happens next. Trapped on the train with an angry Vampire willing to kill who knows how many people to secure the Sedefkar Simulacrum the Investigators are backed into a corner like never before. The horrors they have seen are eroding their sanity and their will.

Can they survive, can they rid themselves of the Vampire, and can they live with what they may have to do to triumph?

The Investigators have finally got the whole of the Sedefkar Simulacrum, and although it is making them feel awful if they can just get to Constantinople and find the Scrolls of Sedefkar they may be able to destroy it. So they settle in for a nice relaxing time on the Orient Express.

Yeah

Right.

There is something on the train with them, and it seems to be interested with their cargo.

Looking for the local priest Christian Philopovic they are glad to have left the Big Black Cockerel behind on the train so they can take full advantage of the locals hospitality.

They seem to have been invited to a large meal, another large meal, and then an ancient ritual. What is the significance of the ritual, what is the bone whistle for, and why does the priest’s wife look so well preserved?

With Selina arrested for Issy’s murder and the Sedefkar Simulacrum impounded along with all of the things they took from Professor Moric’s dig site.
