Dungeons and Dragons – Curse of Innistrahd Episode 15

It was tiring waiting that long. Strephan Maurer ponderously set his chin in his hands on another tired day. Progress was stilted. The land remained clutched in his elegant grasp, the fools in the towns wary but feeling their trivial safety. A hiss of dismissal poured from his pursed lips. And yet they stood in his way. His fingers tapped against his pale skin, feeling the beat through his jaw and gleaming teeth. Tatyana was still there. And there was no easy way to collect her with elegance. The town needed to remain, shepherds need their sheep. And that crazed Inquisitor wouldn’t simply relinquish the town. And even more still were that would be group of hunters, stomping through the forest like a frightened boar. Their lack of subtlety was adorable, but could prove troublesome. So perhaps… Yes.

Standing to his full height, he held out a hand as parchment and quill traveled loyally to his grip caught in invisible eddies. Across the room Rahadin, clad in black fur with his deep skin eyed his lord carefully, but didn’t speak. The rapid scratching of the feather on paper wasn’t something he’d disturb. Minutes later as the flurry of strokes ended and the wax seal was set to envelope, he finally felt the space to clear his throat subtly from the edge of the candlelit room. Maurer held the envelope out, looking his loyal servant in the eye. “Deliver this to Inghild.” he said in meticulous deep words. His face was placid for but a moment more, his mouth splitting into a sharp humorless grin. “It’s time we followed through on our plans.”

Only War – Severan Dominate Episode 3

Encounters with other cultures under the Dominate’s protection is inevitable. While your own commanders, in concert with the Legate Corps, will do their best to integrate you, it is your own duty to seek to understand those who will fight alongside you. Depend upon each other, no matter your differences – the Dogs of Terra will exploit any weakness they can.

The empty manufactorium seems like a good place to recover. But distrust within the squad, the ever-belligerent orks, and the fallout of the drop-ship crash all threaten the Aetherian Rex‘s ability to rest, even for a moment. When a sudden evacuation becomes necessary, the scramble to get the VIPs and the rest of the soldiers out in one piece begins. . .

InSpectres – The Ecto Cooler Power Hour

In the bygone year of 2007, paranormal investigations flooded the airwaves of deep cable stations. One such station assembled its own team to set itself apart from the others: A former child star turned spirit medium, a time traveler equipped with high tech ghost hunting and capturing gear, and a twenty-something white guy with no relevant skills or interesting qualities. Together they would spend a full hour in the possible proximity of a ghost while yelling and drinking crisp, refreshing coca-cola.

This is their story.

Dungeons and Dragons – Curse of Innistrahd Episode 14

Sitting in his decrepit shack, Bluto pondered his life’s direction. He plucked a silvery fish scale desiccated with time from his beard, staring at it as if it would lead him to an answer. It was little secret that over the last couple of years things had only gotten worse. The land didn’t have much kindness in it, but here it felt as if even the waters he had known since childhood were deciding to spite him. The other fishermen had given up, hunting or farming showing better results, and eventually the only results at all. The lake seemed so placid with it’s gray green surface.

But no matter how far his body or eyes traveled from it’s seemingly empty waters, he could feel his mind floating and still in the grasp of the lake. But perhaps it was time. Time to leave like the rest. He stood up from the rickety gray wood of his hovel, and went out to pull in the nets for the last time. It was this day he would find the gray surface of the water torn open, ripped to unveil a creature of a size he never could’ve imagined. And as the beast sunk beneath the still frothing wake, Bluto knew a chance was being offered. The waters had more to give to the loyal.

Only War – Severan Dominate Episode 2

The Dogs of Terra may seem to have an unlikely ally in the brutal Orks. Beset as our worlds were by the xenos’ attacks when the Great Secession occured, your likelihood of being engaged in a three-way fight on any battlefield you’re deployed too is high. But fear not – orks are war-hungry creatures, and they care not from where their fights come. High Command will ensure that wherever possible, your efforts will drive the two forces against one another. Trust in the Dominate – our Interdependence gives us strength.

—–

After a relatively safe drop, things quickly became complicated for the Aetherian Rex 1st Auxilliary Corps and their first mission. The section of mazelike honeycombed mining tunnels that they were assigned to examine have become home to strange orkish slave camps, a kilometer-long crashed imperial dropship, and Emperor knows what else. Initial reports from the newly-freed Excavatory Warriors have been… of mixed value.

Still, they push onwards towards the Corbin-Danziger line, ready to administer their deadly payload to whatever lies on the other side. All they have to do is make it there.
