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?
