Trying to get a leg-up on the competition, our larpers descend deeper into the forest. As emotions run high, Eldarak goes sour and they have to fight for their lives.
Note: The conclusion of this mini campaign was accidentally published as episode 4 before the release of this episode. The conclusion has since then relabeled as episode five. Sorry for the confusion.
With Eldarak well under way, the larpers delve deeper into the forest and madness.
Warning: The game is cut a bit short due to Adam’s daughter getting sick.
Today we sit down to discuss table control and how to implement it in both the real and virtual settings.

“The neighborhood’s always been pretty nice, if quiet. Good schools, low crime, nice restaurants. The only problem is the mail: a man keeps sending bizarre letters to the residents.

Trigger Warning: this actual play contains the writings of Francis E. Dec, a very ill man with horrible views on race.

Noah and Adam regale Chris with tales of their Gen Con 2016 experiences.
