This week, Rag-NERD-rok takes to the upside-down skies of Inverse World with the first installment of a three-episode mini-campaign! A criminal mastermind known as The Tentacle contracts Captain Seahawk and his crew of rowdy misfits aboard the Solar Sailor to travel to the island of Ice Loch and force the local government to loosen its draconian stranglehold on area trade. Among them are Crisis, an elemental creature made of liquid fire who runs the ship’s boiler, Clark, a hapless high-flyer who gained his remarkable acrobatic abilities after he fell into Sola’s gold cage, and Sidd, a man with a mech suit and a tinkerer’s knack for creating useful inventions. In order to complete their mission and get paid, they’ll have to infiltrate the island and threaten, cajole or strong-arm the crime family that runs its shipping. However, en route to their destination, the crew must pass through a treacherous uprainstom that will test their abilities to work as a team. Can they survive the onslaught of Sola’s tears and reach port, or will they find themselves careening toward the fiery center of Invells? Listen to find out!
In the series finale to Alex’s Masters of Umdaar campaign, the Archaeonauts must use the Cube of Subeqo to defeat Drazkum the Debaser. First, however, they will need to capture the final piece, a sliver that they did not even realize was missing, from the Master’s helmet. And before that, they’ll need to put aside their differences, work out their interpersonal issues, and learn to work together as a team. Can this ragtag group of adventurers, mages and underwear relocation experts save Umdaar from the evil they unleashed, or will they learn the true power of the Demiurge when their enemy wields it against them? Listen to find out!
This week’s installment of Masters of Umdaar finds our brave Archaeonauts returning to the seaside village of Meh on the Mediocre Coast, site of their storied victory against the dreaded Ella-Vator! The Cube of Subeqo has led them back with visions of an underwater temple where the next fragment awaits. But before they can explore, our heroes will have to navigate the awkward social consequences of their previous dealings with the townsfolk, and discover the true story behind the underwater castle. When a fellow artifact hunter offers them a ride in her submarine, they gladly accept, but is their faith in her good will mislaid? (Spoiler: Yes.) Can the Archaeonauts outsmart a rival, survive a dungeon full of dangerous traps, and rescue the second-to-last piece from the watery depths? Listen to find out!
In this week’s adventure, the Archaeonauts continue their quest for the fragments of the Cube of Subeqo! In order to retrieve the next fragment, they’ll have to cross a bottomless chasm, fight a colony of cybernetic ants in a destroyed city, and find an unreadable book in an impossible library. First, in order to cross the chasm, they’ll have to deal with a ferryman who demands that they give a part of themselves–or will they? Next, they’ll have to avoid a swarm of ants that has “uploaded” most of a city. Can they avoid being devoured? Finally, they’ll have to explore the Library of the Unknown, where the books reveal the knowledge that nobody else in Umdaar possesses. Can they defeat the fearsome librarian and escape with the missing fragment? Listen to find out!
