The members of Freelance, a crew of Takers with a rotating workforce, go out on their first job. The enclave of New Hamar needs an item delivered to them, but what could be so valuable as to require the services of our band of mercenaries?

We’ve gotten together with The Roleplaying Exchange and [Insert Quest Here] to create a living campaign setting for Red Markets, set in the great state of Minnesota. Our upcoming actual plays will be divided amongst the three podcasts (and any others that join in) with a drop-in/drop-out play structure.

Episodes will be up in the next few weeks, but until then you can listen to us create a post-Crash Midwest. You can also join in on the discussion on the recently created LifeLines Forum.

Actual Play: Fiasco – Innsmouthsburg

 

 

The sleepy little town of Innsmouth is under attack by a dark force, something that has plagued humanity for years, targeting the hungry and poor: gentrification. Artists, socialites, and tastemakers are flocking to the seaside village, flooding the street with fixie bicycles and artisan coffee shops. But little do these hipsters know, something older resides in Innsmouthsburg, and the call haunts the dreams of the long-time residents. Everyone has an agenda, and that can only lead to… a Fiasco.

Aaron – Gus West

Episode 18: Teaching At The Table

While it is ideal that everyone gathering around the table knows how to play the game, many times it is up to the GM to not only run the game but educate players while they do so. In this episode Noah, Adam, and Chris explore best practices of how to show players an RPG system.

Areas of discussion: new players, new system, character sheets from hell, free rpg day, Origins, and Car Hitler

Actual Play: Slasher Flick – Miskatonic University Spring Break

 

It was supposed to be the perfect getaway. A group of Miskatonic University students travel to a small island off the coast of Rhode Island to throw a weekend long beach party in celebration of Spring Break. Celebrations quickly turn to horror when the partiers discover they are not alone. Will the students overcome what they’ve uncovered, or will the dark forces hidden within the island turn this into nothing more than a bloody Slasher Flick?

The crew has finally made it to Fort Seeley, but the base is currently occupied by DHQS operators, and under surveillance by Canadian nationals. They’ve come up with a plan to neutralize both sides by kiting a horde of casualties to the fort, but it’s a high risk plan. Will they be able to secure the site without any setbacks, or will Thumb slip up again?

Red Markets: King of the Hill Episode 2

 

The Copper Kings have been contracted by a man calling himself Goodyear: they need to secure a supposedly abandoned air force base housing an experimental airship. But they need to get to the site first: a journey, on foot, through zombie-infested hillside. Will the crew be able to make a profit on their journey, or will Thumb screw shit up?

Actual Play: Delta Green – Operation: PELAGIC

 

 

A group of federal employees with special clearance are scrambled to Crofton, Maryland, as the Program comes to fear infiltration by a non-human lineage. The body of William Garrett, NSA analyst and Delta Green friendly, has been discovered in his townhouse. Garrett’s cadaver appears to have been partially transformed into a reptilian, or possibly aquatic, hominid monstrosity. Have the Program’s efforts to track and sever the Innsmouth bloodlines been in vain? What killed William Garrett, and how? Operation PELAGIC has been activated at short notice to plunge into murkier depths than anyone could possibly expect in this original scenario.
