With Dandy’s return to the table, the Liberation Industries crew dive in guns blazing to playtest Erika Chappell’s Flying Circus, the game of high passions and deadly airplane combat in a fantastical post-apocalyptic world.

In case the title didn’t make it completely obvious, these sessions were played using Evil Hat’s Don’t Rest Your Head, a tension-pumping horror game of insomnia, delusion and unreality. Definitely worth checking out.

Incidentally, in the little debrief at the end of the session we spend a fair bit of time talking about a little module by Jason Morningstar, The Rooftop Necropolis of the Blood Mummy, which is also worth a read if you’re in the mood for a unique fantasy setting.
