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!

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!

For the Sentinels of The Invisible Word, an “informal” Firewall server dedicated to tracking and combating epistemological threats, nothing poses a greater danger to the continued existence of the species than the limits of transhuman knowledge. Without the approval of the rest of The Org, they have taken it upon themselves to untie the knotty philosophical questions puzzling transhumans. Is the post-Fall world nothing but an elaborate simulation under the TITANs’ control? In order to test the limits of reality itself, they’ll have to track down a rare petal called Delphinium One, a shared hallucinatory experience created by a rogue AGI hacker. Getting their hands on the petal may be easier said than done, however, as the only one on Mars has currently been promised to socialite and scion of Elysium Vincenza Oaxaca-Maartens. Can these philosophical agents of Firewall acquire the petal and prove once and for all whether or not the entirety of existence is an elaborate sham? Listen to find out!
