It’s a simple job: go to the mall, break into the DMV and steal a bunch of shit for someone who needs it. The payout is pretty decent, too. Simple, right?

Well, nothing is simple in the Loss. It’s three legs from the enclave to the job site, and that’s plenty of time for shit to get cocked up and for someone to wind up dead. You’ll have to deal with greedy assholes who want to take what you’ve got and leave you for dead. And people who want in on your score, too. And the undead, of course.

And no one has been to this mall since the Crash. There’s probably a good reason for that. But as Takers, figuring shit like that out on the fly is all part of the job.

Join us as Rag-NERD-rok playtests the quick-start rules to “Red Markets,” and the players learn just how hard life can be west of the Recession.

Scribbledelphia: a cartoon city where everything is bright and colorful, and the work goes to the newest and flashiest CGI animations. Hand-drawn cartoons are left to fade into black and white, and then obscurity. Everything in the city is alive, except for poor government official Billy Button, who was found dead underneath a piano in Barberatown.

Now, it’s up to the five people who were closest to Billy Button to find out who put the eraser to him and bring his killer to justice. There’s Gruffs McKenzie, the bloodhound private-eye and Billy Button’s former lover; Freddy Fingers, a Pixe Towers mobster and Billy Button’s cousin; Bella DiBall, Billy Button’s estranged mother — a depressed, drunk┬áprincess with a retinue of happy and singing animal helpers; Duke, the owner of Duke Pianos and many clubs in Scribbledelphia, and a friend of Billy Button; and Jack Sassafras; a vaudevillian performer that Billy Button’s loved so much that he ran his fan club.

Will the five unlikely companions be able to figure out who erased Billy Button and why? Or are they going to wind up rubbed out themselves?

You may remember way back when, in Episode 14, we had Star Wars artist Joe Hogan on the show. Well, Joe’s been working ever since, and he just released his a motion comic version of his original story “The Siren of Dathomir.” It’s pretty fantastic. If you’re a fan of Star Wars (and you probably are if you’re here), you should definitely check it out. It’s high-quality and really, really well done.
