In this week’s Eclipse Phase one-shot, Firewall scrambles a group of Sentinels on Extropia to neutralize an exsurgent outbreak at a swanky fundraising dinner. Can our team infiltrate the restaurant hosting the party before the chef infects everyone in attendance with their angry alien protein goo and save Extropia from becoming an exsurgent’s hors d’oeuvre? Listen to find out!
When three friends find themselves trapped inside the fictional world of the card game Dominion, they’ll have to play the game in order to escape. And that means–you guessed it–cranking out as much money as they possibly can and buying all the land they can get their grubby little hands on! Luckily, none of the people in the fictional world are real (or so they tell themselves), which means there’s no exploitative depths to which our…heroes…?…won’t sink if it means taking home the most Victory Points. Can they escape the game, or will they have to discard their futures to the trash? Listen to find out!
(NOTE: Actual gameplay begins at 22 minutes 30 seconds)
The Poppleton Mall is a friendly place, where each welcoming storefront promises commerce and community. One Family-owned business in particular offers its customers the opportunity to become more—if they’re cheerful, hard-working, and willing to invest in themselves. Becoming a member of The Family is the first step to owning your own happy storefront where you, too, can spread the joy of premium dietary supplements. It’s as easy as purchasing your own starter supply, signing up for a series of Family leadership seminars, and sticking to your prescribed regimen of brain-enhancing nootropics. As the staff are medically conditioned to say, “Welcome to our home!” Welcome to Poppleton Mall!
This last Spooktober game is a little bit late because it wasn’t actually recorded as one—shhh! People got sick and life got in the way, and we didn’t actually get to play a fourth spoopy one-shot. So please enjoy this re-purposed game of Heart that Ryan, Erik and Alex played a few months ago, and try to think Halloween-y thoughts while listening.
When a decadent high-elf noble sends an emissary to the undercity to procure a particular preferred pastry, it’ll be up to a Deadwalker and a Deep Apiarist to acquire the confection in question. In order to perform their assigned task and get paid, they’ll need to rescue the baker from a terrifying creature of the Heart. Will they survive their journey into the depths with their minds intact, or will a loaf of bread prove to be their undoing? Listen to find out!
It’s time for the annual July 4th Block Party on Wisteria Court, a quiet cul-de-sac in a peaceful suburban neighborhood. They’ve got a food truck and a slip’n’slide, a bounce castle and a DJ. But something’s wrong on this idyllic block, and an unnatural force is about to drag the whole street out of reality itself. Blane and Zaq, two obnoxious undergrads who are renting a house on the block, will have to step up and save their neighbors from certain doom, but it’ll take more than their garage ninjutsu or hyper-potent Australian marijuana to set things right. Can they pull it off, or will they be lost outside of spacetime forever? Listen to find out!
