Engine Heart: The Tricentennial – Session 1

Following a duration of wandering through the wastes, looking for any human life, APA079X has finally made his way back to DC to get new orders from the FBI main office.  He crosses the border into the District and is greeted with. . . flags?  Why are there flags everywhere?  What’s going on at the Smithsonian?  Why won’t this drilling robot shut the hell up?

These stories and more in our first adventure through the District of Columbia on the 300th anniversary of America’s independence.


  • Matt: KLEEN-SCRP-2455 (“Squeegee-bot”):  General purpose cleaning and window-washing robot
  • Sean: TERRA-DRILLER (“Drill-bot”):  Subway maintenance and digging robot
  • Nate: APA079-X (“APOX”) – General-purpose android.  Detective of Human and Synthetic Crimes.

    Oh man, I’ve listened to this a few times now, still entertaining, and I think I know what my next piece of fan art will be. Either a startsky and hutch poster with drillbot and squeegybot or a noir-esque poster of APOX… or both!

    You should do more of these games.

    Hope Nate likes this bit of fan art.

      He had some sound editing software that he had configured as his skype microphone. You can hear both him and alex using it in early sessions of road trip (from The Wizard up through Smile Part 1).
