A group of unlikely companions are brought together to do a job at the behest of “the government.” Which government isn’t exactly clear. Nor is the job.

A small town in the mountains has a problem: people there are experiencing nightmares. And because all of the people brought together have…an unusual attachment to the unusual, they are being sent to investigate. 

But before they can do the job, they need to get to the town of Merry. And that might be more difficult than it seems. 

This is the first episode in Rag-NERD-rok’s Pilot Season! Here’s how it works:

We’re each going to run the first game of different campaigns. Once they’re all done, you, the listener, will vote for your favorite two. Those two will be the next campaigns we run! 

This week’s game is being run in Savage Worlds: Deadlands Reloaded by James. Remember to vote at the end of the Pilot Season for your favorites!

Their most recent job was a simple one: deliver a small package. But when their contact to accept the package (and pay them) winds up dead, things get a little more complicated.

Can the crew keep their wits together and still turn a profit? Or will their curiosity about the mysterious package tear them apart? Listen to find out!

For years, Firewall has been trying to capture Kevin McCallister, a survivor of the Lost Generation who has been smuggling extremely dangerous artifacts out of the TQZ on Mars.

It’s Christmas Eve in Jovian space, and McCallister has been sighted visiting the home of his parents on the Reagan Cylinder of Columbus. Firewall scrambles two sentinels to investigate what McCallister is up to and capture him. 

McCallister’s family is on vacation, so it seems he’s home alone. But this quiet house holds many surprises. Can the two sentinels complete their mission, or will they fall victim to Kevin McCallister’s machinations? Listen to find out!

What’s that? Erik is sitting in the GM seat? What crazy reality have we found ourselves in?!

That’s right, everyone’s second-favorite guy from the podcast named Erik is running us through a game of Gateway, a super-rules-light fantasy game. Four adventurers find themselves in the town of Frostend just as some strange happenings are…happening. Magic users in the town seem to be disappearing, and no one knows why. Or seems to care, really.

Can a Tiefling Bard, a Dwarf rogue, a Goliath fighter and an Dragonborn warlock save the magic users in town? Or will they all die for being really annoying? Listen to find out!

Editor’s note: Erik came up with this title. While the game is good, the title is not, and I’m posting it under protest.

An agent has gone missing after investigating a local art museum, which had activity flagged by the organization. Now, three more are being sent in to find him.

But what they find in the museum is stranger than anyone could have expected. The sanity-rending structure will push the agents to the brink.

Will they be able to survive the horrors of the museum? Or will they end up like the man they were sent to save? Listen to find out!

This scenario was based on an entry to the 2016 shotgun scenario contest by Ross Payton.
