Shin Megami Tensei and Other Childish Things Session 1

Welcome, listeners, to the small Wisconsin town of Athens, WI, where dark things are stirring. The barrier between our world and whatever is on the other side has weakened.

Three of the students at St. Christopher’s Catholic School have been missing from school for several days. Upon investigation by our intrepid heroes, the missing students turn out to be under care at the local hospital’s coma ward.

Mrs. Frieda’s Session 38 – One-Man Two-Man Band

Having discovered the first clue to the mystery of Spring Crescent, and rapidly retreating, the gang devises a plan to investigate further: they’ll get un-grounded, and go BACK TO SCHOOL.

Mrs. Frieda’s Halfway Home Session 34 – A Perfect Day

Welcome to Mrs. Frieda’s State Home, where nothing weird has ever, or will ever happen. Scott Valle, middle schooler, has chosen to play hooky from school with his friend Manny in order to play with G.I. Joes.

This is a Frieda’s without monsters. Without shadows, where nothing lurks in the corners and in the minds of its occupants, in a Troy not pitted and cratered by the effects of those monsters.

This session was conducted with a parallel text roleplay, telling George and Emma’s story. While not critical to the plot of this session, it adds a nice bit of extra character development.  That story can be read here.
