It’s the most wonderful time of the year—a time of peace and purchasing, of caring and consumerism, a season for selling. However, in the sleepy little town of Lawson, something sinister lurks among the aisles and shelves of a big box store, hoping to disrupt the hallowed spirit of capitalist fervor that has filled the hearts of the locals. When a man turns up dead and his son goes missing, it will be up to four fearless hunters to track the creature to its lair and stop the holiday terror at its source. Can they pull off a yuletide miracle with just three shopping days left to go before Christmas? Listen to find out!
One of the keys to survival out in The Loss is community—being a part of an enclave and having access to the skills and support it provides. Not every enclave that sprang up since The Crash has survived, however. Outbreaks of hot Blight have turned many former bastions of civilization into festering casualty traps. This week, The Missionaries are hired by their enclave to retrieve the plans for an energy-efficient windmill from just such a place, but when they arrive, they discover that the area’s real problem is the living. Can they extract the plans without agitating the Shepherds who have started using the place as a pen for nearby casualties? Listen to find out!
It seems like a simple job. Go to the home of a reclusive starlet out in The Loss. Find her safe and gain access. Put the marriage license inside on a drone that will take it back to the client.
But in the Loss, there’s no such thing as simple.
When a devious trap leads Watchdog to be exposed to The Blight, the team will have to close ranks and cover each other’s backs just in case he goes vector. Oh, and the job site has been exposed to the elements since The Crash, leaving the interiors a potential death trap of rotten floors. Will the takers clear enough bounty on this job to make their bills? Can they find the safe, retrieve the document and get out without ending up in the basement? Is Watchdog infected?

All-Mart is a big-box store and wholesaler, the type of establishment that stocks mountains of off-season swimwear and pallets of industrial-sized mayonnaise jars. There’s more hidden on these shelves than meets the eye, however, and four overnight employees have banded together to discover the truth behind the mysterious items that occasionally turn up. They call it “exostock,” products that shouldn’t exist from outside of reality itself, each with a discrete magical effect. In the hours between eleven and seven, when only the weirdos shop, this cabal of would-be chargers explore the sprawling aisles, hoping to uncover the secret of the All-Mart and inventory the strangeness that lurks within. Will they find the answers they seek, or will trifling with arcane powers beyond their ken lead them to ruin?

With the only eyewitnesses to the crime too drunk (or too terrified) to report what they saw, the teens are left to puzzle over the killer’s identity and motives.
