Episode 24 - A Good Guy With A Magic Sword

If you live in the Kingdom of Cyriania, you’ve heard about the Feltrain Festival. The Feltrain Festival is an annual tradition in Cyriania, an all-night dance party, and one of the few that is, by tradition, unsegregated. All are welcome at Feltrain: Elves, Dwarves, Humans, Tanuki, Great Eagles, everyone. It’s often held up as a sign of Cyriania’s social progress, that ever since the fall of the Dark Lord Necron and the breaking of his bone throne, Cyriania has been moving forward.

This year, however, that illusion was shattered when Huber Heknut walked up to the Feltrain Festival and pulled out a magic sword that released a poison gas that killed 50 people at the festival in a matter of seconds.

Every tavern and inn conversation asks the same questions Should magic swords be banned? Or are magic swords an unalienable right? And what does the Raptor Queen have to say about all this?

New promo, with some of the great vocal performances from Season 2: Jason Gregory Banks, Christopher Morse, Sonia Williams, Dave Robison, Christiana Ellis, Russell Collins, Whitney "Strix" Beltrán, Kennedy Allen, Gorgah & Ellen Kushner.

It's 2 minutes long, so it's more of a trailer than a promo. But, oh, what a fun 2 minutes!

Episode 23 - Even In Arcadia

At the turn of the last century, a group of alien refugees decided hide as servants to large British manor houses. No one noticed anything unusual about the new house staff because no one ever noticed the house staff.

No one noticed, that is, until the Prince arrived.

Episode 22 - The Wake Of The Lacuna

There's no adventurers braver than the End of Time Club! With a roster straight out of pulp novels, there's nothing these daring explorers, daredevil pilots and dark vigilantes can't face!

Except perhaps, the loss of one of their own.

When the brilliant detective known as the Lacuna goes missing, its up the remaining End of Timers to make sense of the mystery.

Recorded live at The Art Church of West Philadelphia as part of The Philadelphia Podcast Festival!

"The Wake Of The Lacuna" was absolutely amazing. The best live show yet, in no small part due to the astounding performances this cast gave.

From left to right, that's Isa St. Clair as Abigail Airheart, Len Webb as Tom Brayve, Phil Thomas as Doc Cosmos, Andy Holdman as Operative 7, Sonia Williams as Rachnae.

Well, not quite, but she might as well. The next episode is almost a monologue for VFPX VIP Whitney Strix Beltrán, and dang if she doesn't knock the whole business out of the park.

Y'all are in for a treat.

Extra special thanks to Mildred Cady and Marnen Laibow Kaiser for translating the Comrade Cockroach and Ursa Major dialogue into Russian. If you have any problems with it, it’s my fault for pronouncing their amazing work poorly.

Craving some Comrade Cockroach comics? I've got you covered:
"The Definition of Insanity," an early adventure with Major Ursa
"The Secret Origin of Comrade Cockroach"
"Hand In Unlovable Hand," about his romance with Doctor Mercury, another supervillain

How can you not love Chris Morse's Supervillain Corner? It's only the best! Also, Chris not only lets me get away with my weird, out-of-the-box metascripts, he even voices Prof. Brainfever them! What a class-act.

Alasdair Stuart and Graham Wamsley had a tall order, having to sound incredibly bored the whole time, while John Davis had to be a bear.

I ask strange things of my actors.
