For those of you who have been following the comments on our recent games, it should come as no surprise that one of our listeners has created a ringtone of Meyer and James being Meyer and James, and was generous enough to share the file with us. So without further ado, for your listening pleasure, here it is: Meyer’s AAAAH.mp3, submitted by Chados!

Much thanks.

These are the voyages of the starship Sexy Raptor. The sexy five-year mission of its sexy crew— we aren’t quite sure what it is, honestly, but we’ll be damned if they don’t look good doing it! There’s Lt. UNIVAC Jones, the Sexy Android and science officer, who suffers from a robotic lack of affect and has an interchangeable pelvis. The Honorable Dirk Parallax serves as the ship’s Sexy Envoy, bringing a deep-rooted empathy to all his sexy interactions with alien species. Dr. Stacey Lovemore, the Sexy, Sexy Doctor, keeps the crew in good health after their sexy away missions, which involve far fewer STIs than you might think. Ens. Archimedes Redshirt, the Raptor’s Sexy Dangerous Pilot (who might be a Time Lord), steers the ship clear of danger just in the nick of time. Finally, there’s Lt. Cmdr. G’nex G’nathiroyd, Sexy Alien Engineer with more appendages and orifices than any sane person would care to think about. With Captain D’Arcy out of commission in the med bay, it’s up to these intrepid (and sexy) crewpersons to fend off a potential invasion of an alien world by the fearsome Hive Armada. Can they repel the invading insects and save an innocent civilization, or will all their sexy expertise go to waste? Listen to find out!

The idyllic village of Beggar’s Hole is a lot more pleasant than its name would imply: its inhabitants enjoy prosperity and comfort thanks to the local turkey ranches and a nearby deposit of magicite crystals that can be mined to produce enchanted items. However, when a shadow storm infects the town’s landfowl, the magical powers of the crystal caves spawn giant magicite turkeys to do battle with the shadow menace, and the innocent villagers are caught in the middle! Now, trapped in the local alehouse, a completely random group of Level 0 characters must survive the melee with only a few improvised weapons and their wits to aid them. Can an onion farmer, a wandering elf, an impulsive alewife, a rat catcher, a dim shoemaker, a falconer, an elderly bard and a budding thief discover the source of the shadow magic before it’s too late, or are they destined to be squashed like bugs on the windshield of high fantasy role playing? Listen to find out!

A respected mathematician, an ex-RAF non-com and a scholar of the occult set out to the remote Scottish isle of St. Margaret’s in pursuit of a trio of missing persons who vanished months ago. As cover, they take up positions at a boarding school, a holdover from the Victorian era where English girls are moulded into proper young ladies, but something seems amiss. The students are sickly and listless, victims of sudden and horrific injuries. Faculty and staff seem equally apathetic about life at St. Margaret’s. All this raises a number of questions that our Investigators must answer, even if it costs their last vestiges of sanity: Is there something more at work on the island than educational ennui? What drew the missing persons to the school in the months prior, and what caused their disappearance? Finally, what can be done to save the students from succumbing to The Dying of St. Margaret’s? Listen to find out!

In this week’s Actual Play, the prisoners from The Big Break finally put their plan into motion and mount a daring escape. First, however, they must recover the warden’s security passkey, without which they cannot access the dry docks where submarines from the surface make regular deliveries. In the warden’s personal quarters, they discover another prisoner, one mysteriously immune to the alien creatures that have turned other inmates into hyper-loyal, super strong footsoldiers, and rescue him from solitary confinement. When the escapees trigger the warden’s dead man switch on a hidden booby trap, they must find an alternate route out of the prison complex, one which will lead them to confront the prison doctor and a squad of alien hybrids in hopes of boarding the one escape sub. Can they defeat the hybrids and pilot the sub to freedom, or will they find themselves sealed in a watery tomb? Listen to find out!
