Welcome to Kitchen Arena, the ultimate gladiatorial battleground where the galaxy’s greatest chefs come to put their culinary skills to the ultimate test! During this episode, three competitors will face off against each other, and against the Chairwoman’s fearsome cooking automaton, the Plutonium Chef! One is a grandmotherly demon-lady from the “deep South” who wants to found a galaxy-wide empire and establish her own culinary dynasty to rule it. One is a nefarious master of the dark art of chili-mancy, hoping to re-anchor himself to the material plane and become the greatest gustatory spell-slinger of all time. Finally, a feisty mouse-girl who was formerly the co-host of a successful cooking show, and wants to show the galactic audience that she’s the big cheese. Do our contestants have any hope of winning, or will they find their dreams on the chopping block? Find out, in this Fate Accelerated one-shot!
Aboard his giant battle planet, a massive space station capable of destroying entire star systems, the fearsome Lord Doomicus attempts to crush the scrappy Insurgent Alliance once and for all. A giant battle planet doesn’t run itself,, however, and the totalitarian Dark Lord requires an army of support staff to keep his superweapon crushing rebellions. Among these are Rolfio Scantron, an IT professional with a bad attitude and an overly friendly helper robot named Chit Chat Chip, Cyborg X-32-11-A, a Lightning Soldier who met with an unfortunate demise and had his body parts re-purposed, and Dash Adventura, a junior-grade accountant who moonlights as DJ Dümstar at the forbidden Battle Planet raves. When the Insurgents make a daring attempt to raid the battle planet’s architectural library in search of the station’s plans, it will be up to these three nobodies to foil the enemy’s plans. Can they pull it off?
In a cyberpunk future where Synth has dominated the world market, three independent contractors are hired to infiltrate the upstate compound of Cytopia to rescue a wealthy disciple of its founder’s teachings.

A chromed-out street samurai delivers a personal invitation to the compound, and now, they’ll have to knowingly walk into a trap to complete the mission. Can they make it out alive?

Can they overcome the lure of madness, or will their minds be reprogrammed by it? Listen to find out!
