This week, join us as we imagine life among the lags of New Launceston, a penal colony on the remote Twynn’s World, where the plants are deadly, the giant bees are sentient, and a revolution is brewing. Authority schemes to keep the prisoners under their rule by creating a figurehead liaison to address grievances, but will this sop be enough to quell the rising resentment among their charges? The Dimber Damber and his Abbot struggle to keep control of a burgeoning drug trade, but what of the seemingly intelligent collective of insects that have been attacking production sites? A man comes forward who claims to have spoken to the insects’ Queen All-Mother, but is he a diplomat or a lunatic? And finally, when all else fails, can the formidable Captain of the Marines avert a disaster, or will all hell break loose at the hands of one soldier who is overly fond of high explosives? Listen to find out!
Armed with false identities, new backups and a little cred, our former team of Firewall Sentinels sets out to unravel the conspiracy-within-the-conspiracy known as the Prometheus Syndicate! Using what they learned during their harrowing journey to the TITAN city of Tartarus, they’ll have to track down Charlemagne and his three lieutenants–Sherman, Seldon, and Hyperion. Their investigation takes them to the domed city of Noctis-Quinjiao on Mars. Can our heroes find the information they need and get out without being discovered? Listen to find out!
In the conclusion to “Dolltown,” our crew of Investigators must deal with the terrifying supernatural threat they’ve uncovered in Arbortown, Vermont: a curse that has plagued the community for hundreds of years, and has claimed the lives of at least four residents. They’ll need the assistance of a newcomer, a tough-as-nails biker called in by their contact’s father, to help them perform the necessary rites to cleanse the town of this evil presence. Can they survive the final confrontation with the dryads that have been slowly replacing the town’s women, or will their efforts to seek closure for the citizens of Arbortown go up in flames? Listen to find out!
Burned out of Firewall, on the run from the Planetary Consortium, our team of former Sentinels must act quickly to make some fast cred and acquire fake ego IDs. They decide to contact Gavin’s criminal associate Abebe on Mars, who sends them to the Nine Lives stronghold Legba in the Main Belt, a place where ego slavers exchange minds like currency. If they can liberate the stack of Abebe’s long-lost wife from a pair of violent Lost nutcases, he’ll give them the money and identities they need to infiltrate the inner system and strike back at the Prometheus Syndicate. Will they be able to get the job done, or will they find themselves on the wrong end of the soul trade? Listen to find out!
