Episode 211
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?

Chai Masala from Tea India is reviewed and Mawdrigen quite likes it (which is good as it is Sheba’s favourite).

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.

On to the Episode.

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.

They have found a Villa on the Via Marco Polo and it has a frieze of Bacchus just like Clarissa’s bruise over the door. Hopefully the amulet is inside and having this this will allow them to do a deal with the Things in the nearby caves for the piece of the simulacrum that the Investigators now fear they have. The door is padlocked and chained up, but with a master thief in their midst they should be able to get through that pretty easier.

Episode 135

Playing a game which I first heard about on the Good Friends of Jackson Elias Podcast (HERE), called Dead Of Night we now step into what I believe is an entirely new genre; Ancient Egyptian Slasher Horror. Add to this we actually welcome a new member of the Cult!

With the Nile not rising in Nautecara the Pharoah has dispatched his daughter to the Temple of Osiris where every year the ritual of the Mysteries of Osiris is performed to ensure that the river does indeed rise, bringing with it the fertile soil needed to ensure everyone in the city does not starve to death.

All is not well however and as the Princess travels across the Nile in her barge, several other boats set off to the temple, boats filled with Irate people intent on taking their revenge on the priests and priestesses of the temple.

What is going on in the Temple, has the Elderly High Priest finally lost it? Why is the High Priestess of Isis so put out, and what has the Holy Eunuch got to hide?

Will they be able to get hold of the Sedefkar Simulacrum if they start a ruck with the Black Shirts however, and even if they can… will they survive the effort to get it with their sanity, and bodies, intact.

Finally we try the “brother” of the Brown Rice Tea, that so traumatised us that I cannot even remember what session we reviewed it on.

The later half of the recording has some sound issues sadly, I have attempted to clean them up.

Slight belling probably due to having to remove so very much Buzz. At least there was no creepy giggling.

Posted in Actual Play, First 100, Podcasts with tags , , , on 12 March 2016 by Mawdrigen

Episode 98

Finally get to run the End of the World having failed to the first time due to illness. In this episode we have Hardwick, Loka, and Bloodied playing Hardwick, Loka, and Bloodied as they turn up to a Roleplaying Session at Cult Headquarters only to find that Mawdrigen (their GM) is not present. The only thing in his place is a post it note telling them to come inside and a whole host of Hell New Yogis posters.

Has their GM been swept up in the Hype for this Kawaii Metal Band? Why are all the Police heading towards the Metal Concert? Why is Loka’s first response to anything resembling not the ordinary to seize knives?!?

Find out now on End of the World: An Apocalypse in Yellow.

CoC7e – Horror on the Orient Express – La Fleurs Du Mal- Session 3

Posted in Actual Play, First 100, Podcasts with tags , , , on 24 January 2016 by Mawdrigen

Episode 91! Which we mistakenly refer to as Episode 90, sorry about that! After a slightly anarchic start what with time scheduling and reading the schedule list wrong and thinking this was episode 90 for a bit, then looking at the Paris map for ages finally the Investigators settle down to look at their options.

It turns out they have leads for both Poissy and Charenton Asylum. With Comte De Fenalik’s villa being at Poissy, and that being the last known resting place of the Simulacrum they decide to do that first.

Reaching the town they begin their investigations, but will they locate the item they wish to find.

Also what is the strange malady affecting everyone’s left hands? Is there a monster at the window? Why does the daughter have such a silly name?

Episode 66

Hello there Culteasts! Continuing the story of the Blood Red Fez firstly they get to the bottom of what was scratching at their door to try and get in. Then they take the time to actually confront Menkaph to try and find out what he is actually planning. In true Henry Terrence-Smythe method this is performed… very politely but not exactly successfully.

Finally… Henri proves himself to be the best Effeminate Belgian Ever.

Once again we are having some form of odd sound issues, as it seems somewhat left heavy, we’re going to try and fix it!

And.

I dream of books, actual physical books with bookmarks rather than piles of damnable paper…. they haunt me… they Hauuuunt me…

Kuro – The Four Otaku of Sto’Vo’Korr – Session 5

Posted in Actual Play, First 100, Podcasts with tags , , , on 13 December 2014 by Mawdrigen

Episode 48

Due to Scary Ghost Tactics I do not suggest listening to this while you drive your car!

In the Finale of the Kuro campaign the Characters now find themselves directly threatened by the angry ghost of Miyuki Sanso, apart from Chiyo who seemingly doesn’t do Pop-Culture references.
With one of the Four Otaku in hand can they keep him safe and alive from the ghost, knowing as they do that if she kills him, then she will be free to start on everyone else who has wronged her.

Currently they are trapped in one of the Otaku’s apartments, safe, so long as the salt barriers hold out.

Surely there’s nothing that could go wrong with that plan.
