Series VI: The Sons of Arahallin - Chapter 0

The dream team is back, baby!! This is the set-up episode for Series VI, which I'm calling The Sons of Arahallin. For a change of pace, I (Nathan, that is) will be putting Ryan, JD, and Zach through the ringer in a series of boss battles as they rip through the lineage of the cyclopean king Arahallin.

Maybe-temporary music: “Walking in the Shadows” by “GO” Saito & Masae Saikade for the Lagoon OST

V: Dimansion of the Tectomancer - Chapter XV

We use Jason Cordova's Labyrinth Move (of Gauntlet fame; link incoming) to construct a session where our heroes explore the magical portal they figured out in the last chapter. They travel across great distances, but push through to get closer to the heart of the Dimansion... and to Ypsilanti's most private space.

Status Report!

Hello, ChimaeraCats!

Apologies for the lack of posted episodes over the last few weeks. I (J.D.) have been finishing my thesis and traveling home. While I hadn’t intended on these activities interfering with the podcasts’s release schedule, the additional editing needed to work around technical issues we’ve had since my move proved too much for my available time. Since I’m currently lacking the equipment I need to finish editing, once again there will not be an episode this week. I again apologize for such a long hiatus.

That being said, getting to see Zach, Ryan, Nathan, and other Chimaera members again while I was home was so amazing and so energizing. We have killer episodes recorded and I’m seriously so stoked to share where our current story goes with you all once I’m back home in the editing booth (my apartment). You can look forward to an episode next week on Wednesday, and thank you all for your patience and understanding.

Sending you Cats all of my +1s.


C-Sides: Sprawl Pt. 1 - Viva Dos Vegas!

Our next installment of C-Sides takes us to the far-flung future of 199X wherein the roving desert city of Dos Vegas drips with sin, excess, and microwavable Jamaican-inspired “food” as we play the PBTA cyberpunk RPG Sprawl.

This episode introduces Lindy, Eddie, and Caveman as well as the megacorporations which dominate the daily life in the Second City of Sin.

Thanks to Hamish Cameron for making Sprawl (check both of them out on Twitter!) and to our friend Max Johnson for recording a grimy Elvis cover for us. Check us out next week when our low-lifes undertake their first mission as a full team!
