This week, our stalwart team of Firewall Sentinels begins their journey through the expansive ruins of Tartarus, a TITAN-created city located somewhere in the outer system. Sleeved in bizarre morphs with unknown and untested abilities, they’ll have to brave the hazards of a physics-defying urban nightmare created by insane machine gods in order to secure some bit of important intel for the organization. In this horrific landscape, they’ll encounter sanity-racked egos trapped in endless torment, wild artificials executing the lunatic experiments of their absent masters, and a host of other extremely troubling things. Will they be able to find weapons and clothing somewhere in the city? Exactly what has the Prometheus Syndicate been up to here? And most important of all, can they escape this mind-shattering maze of endless anguish with their psyches intact? Give a listen to find out!

  • They should’ve at least given the woman a trial before killing her. Old woman, you are accused of the following heinous crimes: Talking back to a PC, 4 counts; Failing to give a PC what it wants, in this case information, 3 counts; Not falling for a PC’s trick, 1 count; And the most heinous crime of all, for which we believe the death penalty to be the only appropriate punishment: No longer being useful to a PC, 1 count.

      This is one of my favorite comments ever. Well done, sir. Well done indeed.

    • yesss this

      I particularly loved not mentioning that there was a sun until the players asked. so much weirder underlining that you have to actually go “hey, wait a minute, why is there–where the fuck is–” very understated assumptions-questiony horror.

    • Ten points.

  • Erenthia

    You guys didn’t ask the woman why she keeps losing her ring?

    • RyGuy

      Well, to be fair, in order to ask her, we probably would’ve had to retrieve the ring, so it wasn’t exactly a priority question. Besides, even if we had asked, I’m willing to bet Alex would’ve given us an absurd or cryptic answer.

      I can also say that the way I played Lucas during most of this arc, he was about a half-second away from indiscriminately killing anyone or anything we met based on the assumption that they were either corrupted or driven insane by the TITANs.
