This week, The Stray Thoughts team heads to the most vile, dangerous place in the solar system, Legba! The former headquarters of the Nine Lives Cartel is still every bit as lawless and treacherous, but now one of Damien’s forks has taken control. Damien Gorello rules the asteroid with poison-tipped tusks in a tricked-out neo-porcine morph, but he has given up his brothers’ dream of fomenting a slave rebellion and instead simply revels in his power. Moreover, he has killed the surviving handful of Damiens and now holds most of their stacks on his person at all times. With the assistance of Yarmello, another fork who avoided the purge by playing toady, Damien Carmello and the rest of the team issue a public challenge for control of the station. In order to rescue his forks, Damien will have to defeat one of them in gladiatorial combat. Can his friends help him ensure victory?
When the prince sent them over the mountains to avenge some royal slight, they were proud warriors ready to fight and die for the glory of their monarch. Now, in the wake of a failed campaign, a group of battle-weary survivors must make their way through enemy territory in order to return to their homeland. They know neither the terrain nor the language, and though the local customs seem oddly familiar, the enemy’s people and their culture are, in many ways, alien. Even the most miniscule misstep could reveal them as enemy combatants, so they’ll have to be constantly vigilant unless they want to fight their way through the patrols sent to wipe them out. Join the Rag-NERD-rok Crew and special guest GM, Raymond from [insert quest here], for an exciting livecast one-shot session of Dungeon World!
This week, two members of the Stray Thoughts team must face down their demons with the aid of their fellow ex-Sentinels. Former child actress Merry is contacted by her estranged parents, who say that they want to repair their damaged relationship with their daughter. Santiago and Stardust decide to accompany her to Nectar, but are their efforts toward reconciliation genuine? Meanwhile, Fitz, Strapper and 3lizab3th are caught in a bombing that seems to be targeted at them. Their investigation reveals that a figure from Fitz’s anarchist activist youth has resurfaced, and is hell-bent on getting revenge for the act of corporate sabotage that ruined his life. Can Strapper and 3lizab3th keep Fitz alive long enough to confront the bomber? Listen to find out!
This week, the gang tackles Chaosium’s Free RPG Day scenario “The Derelict,” written by Call of Cthulhu designer Sandy Petersen! Titus Burnhardt, a “tech maverick” who also goes by his brogrammer handle “T-Burn,” is a washed-up app developer who’s selling his yacht The Delilah in order to raise enough capital to launch his next big project. The buyer happens to be in Liverpool, which affords T-Burn one last opportunity to throw a kickass boat party during the transatlantic crossing! Titus invites his lawyer, Georgie Berkovich (of Berkovich & Berkovich), a milquetoast hanger-on who enjoys his professional proximity to the wealthy and famous, as well as Peter “Murph” Murphy, a childhood friend who currently serves as his personal bodyguard. The voyage proceeds according to plan until the travelers spot a looming hulk stranded on an iceberg in the North Atlantic, a refrigerated container ship that appears to be abandoned. Driven to investigate by the possibility of a huge salvage claim, the passengers explore the foreboding vessel in order to learn the fate of its crew, and, if possible, tow the derelict to shore. What they find, however, is a creature out of Viking legend, a terrifying Sciapod that wants to hunt them like animals. Can they survive?
