Actual Play: Red Markets 10k Lakes – Episode 8 – Their Billion Hands

Before the Crash, Thomas Naroth made a name for himself as the director of Their Billion Hands, a trilogy of zombie films that were wildly popular before actual zombies became a thing. No one has seen Thomas since the Crash, but a collector in the recession has reason to believe that the original film reels are stored somewhere in Naroth’s cabin in the Loss. In what should be a straightforward job, Freelance needs to travel to Naroth’s cabin to grab the reels, and loot his house for some more sell-able memorabilia. Will the maladjusted crew be able to pull off the job, or is their own makeup their undoing?

This game is based on the story “Undead” by Soren Narnia. Please check out the podcast “Knifepoint Horror” for more spooky stories

Episode 20: Interview with Gobblin’ creator Greg Predmore

Game designer and The Drunk and Ugly podcast member Greg Predmore swings by to discuss his new game Gobblin’, which is currently kickstarting on, well, Kickstarter.

Set in a post-apocalyptic Earth, the goblin race has been banished from their home dimension. Humans may or may not be present, but they’ve sure left a lot of great toys laying around the goblins to play with and/or destroy themselves with reckless abandon.

 

Actual plays of Gobblin’ can be found at Role Playing Public Radio (RPPR) and The Drunk and Ugly Podcast.

 

Check out Gobblin’ on Kickstarter today.
