Episode 171

Welcome back to a very British Apocalypse, as Archive and Hardwick try to escape to the town of Reading to the Promised land of Sonning. We of course get off to a typically on track start, getting very distracted by the weird Eldritch chanting of the Children outside (who were roaring and squeaking).

Once that is dealt with they begin trying to deal with the fact that Archive, as part of her sneaking past the Jolly Anglers Fishermen Pub, by accident instead fired her Fire Extinguisher in through the window.

As Mawdrigen had three hours of sleep, hadn’t read the next chapter, and had just realised we’d reached the halfway point and two and a half YEARS (gods these players are slow).

So we actually decided to do a bit of a retrospective on the first half of the campaign, including talking through the campaign that came directly before we started doing the Podcast “Blood of the Father”.

Episode 155

IT having all “gone to buggery” in the words of Tiny Tim Boxley the Investigators flee the scene taking the dodgy amulet with them. Some mourning is done for Oldstaff, Warfestache, and Otto the Bystander before fleeing back to Trieste.

Luckily it seems someone has appeared to help them, but can they be trusted?

Finally they head back to the Orient Express hoping for a nice rest and chance to recuperate… maybe with a lovely glass of wine.

Episode 151

With the Corpse of the Turkish Business Man finally deposited into the canal, and Tiny Tim Boxleys brain still mostly in his head, the Investigators finally have finally located this Medallion that everyone seems to be interested in. 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.

The Dead Of Night – The Fatal Mysteries of Osiris

Posted in Actual Play, Podcasts, Second 100 with tags , , on 27 November 2016 by Mawdrigen

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?

Episode 118

With Bice telling them that her mistress is in Dire Straits (not the band but the actual predicament) they head out to find everyones favourite flamboyant socialist Georgio.

Will they be able to save Miss Stagliani from a fate worse than death, that of being married to the man made of ham Alberto Rossini. 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.

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?!?

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?

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.

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.

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.
