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!

Have you heard the one about two dwarves, an elf, a human and a halfling who strand themselves on a magical island in search of seven lost treasures? Well, crank up the volume and take a listen, because you’re about to! 

In Chris’ entry for our Pilot Season, a party of adventurers returns to town with the severed heads of a two-headed ogre (ettin?), hoping to barter their loot for information about the island’s secrets. When they are attacked by a pride of swamp lions in the night, they’ll have to use every trick they’ve got to survive and keep their cargo safe. Can they make it back alive?

There’s a special high school in a special land, where kids of all ages, races and martial prowess come together. And some of them have giant robots.

In this anime land, anything can happen. But when four students are pulled into a mysterious parallel dimension, things get weird, even for them. 

Can a ninja-in-training, a beauty-obsessed idol, a guy with a big mech and a demon trapped in the body of a small girl save the day? Or will they be stuck in this weird dimension forever? Listen to find out!

A group of goblins, trying to recover from the tragedy that befell their tribe months ago, set out on a raid. They ambush a caravan heading down a quiet forest road. When a member of the caravansary gets away, a group of goblins chases him down.

They follow their mark into a dark and dank crypt. And inside, they find more than they bargained for.

Will the stalwart goblins make it out alive and with their prey? Will he manage to escape? And will the goblins manage to make it out alive? Listen to find out!

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!
