This week, everyone’s favorite time traveling bed and breakfast lands in 2010 Dallas, and its motley crew of magical guests are dispatched to assassinate two sleeper agents of The Adversaries. However, the team must tread lightly–or, at least, be slightly more careful than usual–because the killings they have been sent to perform figure prominently in the life of Dan and his ex-lover, Billy. Four years before departing with The Titor House for zany adventures throughout history, Dan was blamed for two murders he didn’t commit, which is what set TV bounty hunter Tyger Hawthorne on his trail in the first place. Now, Dan will have to ensure that the two people he supposedly killed end up dead, while simultaneously trying to prevent Billy from becoming another casualty of the war between Adversaries and Employers. Can The Titor House Gang avert tragedy and preserve the timeline? And whatever became of the previous crew of time travelers who worked with Mrs. Wells? Listen to find out!
As per our last Evening at the Burnwood Mansion: “On a stormy night in rural Massachusetts, a group of strangers meets in a spooky old mansion to hear the reading of a will. The deceased, an elderly, incredibly wealthy eccentric by the name of Jebediah Burnwood, has bequeathed his entire estate to anyone at the reading who spends the night in the house. However, it soon becomes evident that Burnwood’s interests went far beyond the eccentric, and the beneficiaries of his will find themselves trapped in an isolated old house with a terrifying predator from another world.” This time around, a violist, a historian, a pop singer, and a marine are called to the reading, and must survive the night at Mr. Burnwood’s horror-infested home. Join Alex as he runs a (mostly) new group of Investigators through his original Call of Cthulhu con scenario!
The fearsome villains of Bulbous Quarry are one step closer to building the devilish device they need to track down Porter, the demon who ruined their lives. In the meantime, the circumstances of their exile continue to worsen. Peyton, currently working kennel duty at an upscale pet salon, finds himself in an awkward position when his boss’s lapdog decides to blackmail him. Peter, who is currently managing accounts at a cash register repair firm, has an unexpected meeting with an old friend. Weylan, now a junior cashier at the local museum’s gift shop, pines for the affections of his much younger boss. When they learn that an exhibit of priceless Egyptian artifacts, newly liberated from the now-defunct Fear Force Five in Apex City, is to be showcased at Weylan’s workplace, the team bands together to take back what was once not-so-rightfully theirs. However, the security protecting the exhibit has been significantly increased, and old tensions strain the group to the breaking point. The Phantom Force will need a solid plan, perfect timing, and the assistance of a newly recruited henchman to pull off the museum heist of the century, again.
After a long hiatus, The Titor House gang is back! This week, they find themselves in Egypt during the 1920s, where they must gain entry to an ancient tomb in order to retrieve an artifact from a secret Employer cache. The tomb itself is guarded by powerful magics, and the body interred there may not be as dead–or as human–as they would like to believe. Within, they’ll find the chip they need to preserve the time loop that Malcolm and Patrick experienced during the breakdown, along with new information about the true nature of their mission. As most of the time travelers have long suspected, the battle between Employers and Adversaries is not as cut-and-dry as it was originally made out to be. Can Malcolm, Dan, Tyger, Gertrude, Patrick and Jack escape from The Tomb of the First Son with the artifact they seek? Even if they can, what hope do they have of surviving a war that has raged the entire span of human history, between vast forces that control time itself?
With the dracolich defeated, the Nettlers (and Taeros) are ready to move on to their final quest: retrieving the diadem of the Dryads from the dreaded Ghost King! However, before they can set out for the Haunted Heath, old friends return to bring them dire news. Pendrel’s sister, a healer working for the rebels, reports that Nettle has been overrun by King William’s forces, and that the shattered rebel leadership have an apocalyptic plan to transform their mother into a goddess of destruction. Brinton, who has communed and become one with Arachnus, returns from the World Wide Web imbued with the knowledge that someone is distributing ancient rituals of apotheosis, and the entire pantheon is now under assault from mortal usurpers. With the rebellion in shambles and even the gods running scared, will the group be able to save Nettle–and the rest of the kingdom–from total annihilation? And what has the Ghost King to do with any of this?
