Episode 161

Still looking for a Cauldron belonging to a bunch of Faeries and following the clues from the dead Antiques dealer the characters get a promising lead.

Sort of.

However it becomes obvious that we don’t really know what we are doing as we flounder wildly trying to find out what the hell is going on. Also why did Nuada choose US for the job…

Please note Cult Central was FILLED with paint fumes hence an anarchic session

Episode 158

We’re back in the Dresdenverse and this time we aren’t jumping all over the place! Well we are still jumping about, but that’s actually us not the recording. Having realised that the Cauldron of the Daghda was probably swiped from the dead Antiques Dealer by someone who could travel through the Nevernever.

So off we go to Dulwich village, where the more non-human of us immediately choose the most non-human methods to investigate.

Episode 156b

Here is the episode! Please note it jumps about a lot at the beginning.

Listen as we in small distinct chunks find out the Tuatha want us to do stuff. Allegory wows us with innuendo about his sweet creamy drink (it’s Bigelow and creamy…). We drink Indian tea mixed in Cornwall.
Then Mark goes to talk to a Warden and then the adventure begins! In Chunks! Jumpy Chunks!
From the point that we get to Kew Gardens however the episode is intact.

Dresden Files – London Falling – Flowers Through The Stone – Session RECAP

Episode 156a

So for the first time in several years of us podcasting we had an Audacity fail, and it decided to shove just over 1/3 of episode 156 down the memory hole and lose it forever. While I attempted to get it back I was unsuccessful although the second half of the episode is actually fully intact. Instead I’m going to put up the slightly jumpy 156b up and here in 156a I and Bloodied go through and tell you what actually happened.

If you want to listen to what we have (unintentional comedy intact) please do, for those who don’t want to please skip episode 156b.

Episode 81

Allegory our American Member is over in England so we decided to to a one shot of Dresden Files!

A power vacuum in London has caused all of the various supernatural players in the City to organise a neutral meeting to discuss splitting up the Hoard of the now deceased Dragon.

With the White and Red Courts, the White Council, the Yardies, the Mafia, and the London Metropolitan Police involved everyone assumes it is a trap. Join us as we work out whose trap it is!

The rag tag band will no doubt have to deal with several issues, with an entirely unsympathetic Wizard, a WerePuma, a member of the police, a woman all covered in strange glowing tattoos and the worlds most terrifying IT guy what could possibly go wrong…

Oh wait. Will Reading still be standing?

Episode 20 –

We continue to follow Denver Soul, and his companions as they try and unravel the mystery surrounding the death of Alleheras. They begin to fathom out what occurred, but what they find cannot possibly be the case. How could an Enslaver of such power be killed by his own minions?

Will they manage to solve the murder? Will they find out the connection to the Fae, or will everything begin to unravel.

This Podcast contains Swearing, Themes of an Adult Nature, Weirdness, Dr Broomstick, Darkness, oh… and Enslavers lots of Enslavers. As such this podcast can be assumed to be Explicit.

I honour of Podcast Saturday ( and Black Friday and so on 🙂 ) I’ve decided to release two today.. Aren’t I nice to you!

NB: Please Note we recorded this AGES ago and we now have more Commenters! We Love you Guys!

Today we begin our semi regular Black City campaign using the rather fine FATE Core system (available here). The Black City is actually my own creation, and the campaign is mostly being used to flesh out the world I’m doing writing in, as such the world might be a little strange.

I will try and write up a little “Gazetteer of the Black City” at some point so that there is a bit more information on the setting available to you all. It’s a strange and somewhat unpleasant place, filled with horrifyingly powerful but broken creatures.

The campaign will follow Denver Soul, an investigator for the shadowy Ascendancy that rules the city, Meneith a disgraced Cog Shaman, Tzark a Spider Waldyr who is very much the muscle of the group, and finally Barnabus, a strange sort of Enslaver who sneaks into peoples houses to eat their dreams (leaving only Nightmares).
One of the Cities High-Order Enslavers has been murdered, which as this would cause a power-vacuum, concerns the Ascendancy greatly and given one of their Skryers has spoken a prophecy regarding it, they dispatch Denver Soul and his compatriots to Deal with it.

Will they manage to solve the murder? Or will the crisis spiral out of control with minions going to war with their masters, and possibly bringing about the fall of the Black City.

This Podcast contains Swearing, Themes of an Adult Nature, Weirdness, Dr Broomstick, Darkness, oh… and Enslavers lots of Enslavers. As such this podcast can be assumed to be Explicit.

Spirit of the Century Gangsters of Chicago.

Tea of the Session: Spice Imperial very tasty and well needed as I was running on three hours of sleep.

Recording: We used the new setup to record it, but it was a bit of a random game so won’t be cast!

We only had three players for the usual Saturday game, so instead of my more usual Rogue Trader game, I decided to run a pure pick-up game of Spirit of the Century game. I’ve never run it before because I’ve never really gotten to the bottom of how it is supposed to work. However recently I’ve been listening to a number of Actual Play Podcasts of Fate games and it made me want to give it a go.

Please Note. If You are intending to potentially play in my SOTC game at the RPG Society I would suggest not reading this next post as it could well be Spoilerrific.
