Players: Abel, Ben, Jamas, Jon and Nick

The underground politics of Metapol come to a head as an old friend needs help out of a sticky situation. The spy-counter-spy action is so thick a casually thrown brick is sure to hit an undercover agent! Guaranteed to provide the U.S.R.D.A recommend amounts of plot threads, loose ends and player complications. A new recording computer was used on this session, so let me know if the quality and ability to hear the players has improved.

Gavin goes Zeppelin hunting from a nearby roof top, the doctor and his mystery gas minimize the firearm damage as the rest of the party go toe-to-toe with The Flying Men! In the end the Erbauer garage remains proudly standing if a bit rough around the edges, and after a celebratory night of being Alive: Drena may soon be the mother of 9.

Session 11



Direct link here to the first part of a two part podcast. Some very definite audio quality differences in this one due to the problem noted below. Direct link to the second and final part is here

Players: Ben, Jamas and Marcus.

  • I had some computer problems over the week that did not result in an optimum or even sane recording environment for this game. I’m sorry to say 1.5 hours of audio got lost and my Macintosh is very, very sorry. I will post the 1 hour of recorded game that did survive along with a synopsis of the first part when the podcast drops. Thanks to Jamas, it looks like a back-up recording was done for this session!
  • Also, we had yet another new player join us this week: Say hello to Ben and his marvelous doctoring bag!
