For those of you who don’t know, Melbourne International Games Week is running this Sunday, and in addition to a robust catalogue of board games that you can play from the comfort of your own living room (that’s right! It’s online this year! Thanks, the Plague!) they have also recruited the team from Arcanacon to get some epic tabletop rpgs running.
So come check out some awesome Australian made indie games, including Storybrewers’ Villagesong, an early version of our pal Logan’s Preparing for Paris, or the much awaited Goblins of Zarth!
Not only that, but Paddy and Lee will be appearing on a panel about being the best rpgamer you can be, and you wouldn’t wanna miss that now would you?
With their initial destination reached, the crew of the turtle do their best to navigate the wilds of the Reach, the complex relations between the different claimants to hegemony of the sky, and the twists and turns of their own fraying sanity.
As you can probably see, our attempts to return from hiatus have not been all that successful. I fear that here at Liberation Industries we were run pretty ragged even before we had to work like dogs through this shocking period of history, so unfortunately we haven’t had the time we need to get those episodes out there.
For now though, we are alright. Though stressed and exhausted we all remain in good health, and we hope that wherever you’re listening from that you are too. As much as we’d love to be slinging the broadcasts to keep you company, I fear that’s not how it played out, and we’ll reassess in the next little while as to how the project will continue.
We will have the Skyfarer conclusion to you as soon as we can manage, and then keep the site in the freezer for a bit until we can figure out a balance that’s sustainable. Our backlog will remain accessible for the foreseeable, so failing all else I guess you can listen to our scratchy but fun early broadcasts.
For those wishing to follow along, we have not left the TTRPG sphere completely, so stay tuned to Whimsy and Metaphor’s Twitch and our Twitter for some irregular gaming and event information.
After a much needed break, the wild eyed explorers at Liberation Industries make their triumphant return with this episode, where we play Grant Howitt and Chris Taylor’s Skyfarer, a delirious tabletop jaunt into Failbetter Games’ Sunless Skies universe. With the captain refusing to leave their quarters, can the crew of the Aeschylus’ Turtle escape their sky-mad pursuer and carry out their superior’s cryptic demands?
Thwarted at every turn by the monsters and temptations unleashed by Lesser Satan, our arse kicking punk heroes prepare for the final showdown the only way they know how… by jacking an icebreaker using weapons they improvised from everyday objects.
In the barely populated darkness of the Antarctic winter, an array of desperately weird station support staff get a splatterpunk shock with the opening of a Hell Portal and the subsequent demonic invasion. But if the world ends in McMurdo Sound… will anybody even notice?
Well a happy Yule and new year to all our Southern imaginary listeners! With this auspicious occasion at play, we’re doing a little midwinter clean here at Liberation Industries.
Don’t panic, we’re just doing what we can to clean up our signal, so you may notice some changes in our format… you can now expect your episodes on the second and fourth Thursday of every month, and our theme music will still be provided by the very talented tgamel over at freesfx.co.uk, but our episodes and website will be seeing an overhaul in the next couple of weeks.
With the darkness of midwinter upon us, we have an alarming Antarctic adventure powered by Machine Age Productions‘ punk-apocalyptic demon splatterfest, Fuck Armageddon!
Braving the terrors and wonders of the Plane of Animals and Agriculture is no easy task, even for seasoned adventurers like Domingo and Urdan. Will they be able to face down salad veg intent on their lives and still make it home with their Chillybin of Holding?
In a glorious feast of cookery, wild food and gently trottering the line of copyright infringement, Urdan the Wood Elf Ranger and Domingo the Anthropig Mathematician are invited into the mighty cookery stadium to participate in the greatest culinary contest the planes have ever seen: Sigil Chef! Haute Cuisine!
This session was powered by Dungeons and Dragons 5th Edition, basically stretched to the point it was unrecognisable, grilled and then served on a bed of mashed potato and chives with a citrus vinaigrette.
