Posted in Actual Play, Podcasts, Third 100 with tags , , , , on 22 September 2019 by Mawdrigen


Episode 281

First Off we sadly had a ton of planes going overhead, and the worlds loudest pigeon! Sorry I did try and cut them out where I could!

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?

Episode 280

Talithar might be coming back, and the coeterie need to be ready for it. However there also seems to be someone spying on them and in these precarious times, that is a definite danger. Obviously they will begin planning the sting on Talithar and come up with an intelligent and safe plan for dealing with the spying. Of course they will. Totally.

It won’t be a stupid insane plan at all.

Episode 274

They need to find more information, and they have a good lead that perhaps they can find it at the Inn of the Red Crossroads. Of course they first have to get there which as it is in the centre of an enormous battleground that three different clans have fought over repeatedly might be difficult. Luckily they have an ample supply of Ghost repelling mushrooms, shame they do not have a mushroom that repels assassins or internal conflict isn’t it?

The Neonates have survived meeting Prince Drummond, but now they must see what happens regarding the forming of Coeteries and the giving out of domains. Surely the Prince wouldn’t show any favouritism…

Episode 270

Given they have dealt with the Gaki and talked to the Ghost you would think the Officers would be fleeing away from the Haunted Forest, except that they aren’t. Instead they are heading back into it searching for the samurai in the forest. The only issue is that the officers all seem to have different ideas about exactly what they are going to do when they find him…

So they have to go fight the Gaki, the hungry ghosts that have been plaguing the village and only then will the Miko get them in touch with the ghost from the bridge.

Episode 264

Returning from the Heiwana shrine the Officers of the Diamyo report back and hen have to discuss what to do next. With the Nakatomi certainly likely to take offence at the killing of their Executioner, the theft of their Teppo and the capture of Jinsoku the Swift perhaps it would be best to prepare for war. However there is a niggling feeling that the Ghost on the Bridge was trying to warn them of something far more dangerous.

What will they do? and more importantly, are they actually going to be able to work together in the face of their varying agendas.

Episode 262

Creeping into a haunted forest at night seemed like such a good plan at first. Then of course it became obvious that there was a lot more in the forest than just them. In fact there is a pretty good chance that the forest is not only haunted but hiding a whole lot of threats.

Can the Samurai enact their plan to steal the Teppo and even the odds? Or will they all die?

Who Knows!

Episode 260

The plan was to have a nice little talk, sort out the confusion about the Migunakitsune presence at the shrine and prevent any bloodshed. However having the Nakatomi samurai shot by an unseen assailant was not part of the plan, especially leaving the much less talkative Nakatomi clan executioner in charge of the surrounding forces.

The Investigators have made their way to the front of the train without being spotted and even managed to persuade some Train Minions to go along with them!

Will their Ambush work? Given they are all so low on health and sanity will they even survive.

Tired of being passive (and with GM prodding) the Investigators realise that sitting and waiting to be stabbed is not a great plan and instead start to work out who is actually Makryat now. First step is to try and work out where the Sedefkar Simulacrum is with a trip to the Fourgon.

Our Harpers continue to try and work out where the Fish-Dogs came from however they aren’t the most… personable of types. What with Gerome’s big town Mob undertones, and Damrod’s, well, problem with people this could be an investigation that takes a bit of time.

As we were down an Archive we decided to run a little Cthulhu Dark this time, although we did have a slightly creaky chair issue as you will hear.

Follow us as we step into the 1890’s where Japan is on the cusp of becoming a great power as the Meiji restoration continues and the Army moves into Manchuria. However this is a particularly risky time for diplomacy so the last thing the Imperial Palace wants is for a demonstration of Sumo for the various ambassadors to result in an unusual incident.

Our unfortunate characters are tipped to “fix” the problem, or if not that, at least find someone to pin it on.

They have decided on escaping via car (not barge!) but the question is where will the car come from?

It may still be necessary to go down by the canal however, but if they do… what will they find!

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.

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.

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?
