You all asked for it, so you’re getting it: another Eclipse Phase campaign!

Gavin, who now goes by The Marquis, has a problem. That problem’s name is Damien Armello. Damien has a bit of a grudge, and he’s out to kill the hell out of Gavin and his friends. So Gavin hires a bunch of troubleshooters to (hopefully) kill Damien first.

But before they can go after Damien, Gavin needs them to help get some of his friends to safety. First among them is Dalton, who’s working as a Ranger in the Martian outback.

Can a nervous async, a curmudgeonly mechanic, a socially awkward AGI and a disgruntled fighter stop the pig who’s had a century to plan his revenge? Or will they just end up as more casualties in his war? Listen to find out!

Will The Company be able to bring this woman some peace? Or does she not deserve a happy ending? Listen to find out!

This week, we play Crash Pandas, a one-page RPG by the illustrious Grant Howitt.

Rant and RikRick are big in the street-racing scene in Los Angeles. The only catch is that they are raccoons. Tonight is the biggest race of their lives, and they need to win. (Of course they need to win, it’s a race. Sorry, that goes without saying.)

Anyway, it’s trash pandas driving a diaper truck in a brutal street race. Listen!
