This week, Alex rounds out the Rag-NERD-rok Pilot Season with a pulp-action-horror game set in a nightmare America ruled by the Great Old Ones!
After R’lyeh rose from the waves and Great Cthulhu awoke, humanity became a cattle race, allowed to exist as feed stock to the gibbering horrors that dwell beyond time and space. For three decades, humans have endured the tyranny of the GOOs, who keep them oppressed under a brutal police state. Though some try to fight back, the odds are utterly hopeless.
On an ordinary evening that will turn out to be anything but, five friends gather for their weekly poker game. When the sixth player, a resistance member named Jackson Elias, arrives, he has in his possession a secret package that he says could help fight the GOOs and liberate humanity. Pursued by the special police, he needs the group’s help to get the parcel to his contact across town.
In order to make the delivery, they’ll have to brave the carefully patrolled streets after curfew. Can they make the delivery and potentially free humanity, or will they end up as a late-night snack for some Lovecraftian horror? Listen to find out!
