Actual Play -Red Markets 10K Lakes – Episode 10 – Great American Dog Race

Roads have broken down 5 years after the Crash, meaning the residents of the 10k have to find alternate modes of travel. The folks at Kennel have hired Freelance for a simple delivery job – get three sleds with attached sled dogs to their clients over at Castle Danger. Surely, this will be a milk run.

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
