The Hell Tithe Ep 1: Faeries, Pingers and Deep-fried Tape Pt 1

Every seven years, the elves must offer one of their own as sacrifice to the Devil on Halloween.

Special guest Seb returns to Liberation Industries for this Halloween special, in which we play The Hell Tithe; Jason Morningstar’s game of faeries, the Devil and fried fish. Ambiguously supernatural fast-food workers Jess, John and Steve must negotiate this terrifying time of year, with only their courage, a deep fryer and a pocketful of uppers between them…

Jason Morningstars’ works are available through bullypulpitgames.com. We have made extensive use of Fiasco in the past, so they’ve more than earned our endorsement.

We also used the resolution cards designed by Matthijs Holter’s charming freeform game Archipelago, available in English here.

Fiasco Ep 3: Ice with a Y Pt 1

We wish you happy holidays as the Liberation Industries team returns to Fiasco, and with all the snowy thoughts floating around at this time of year, The Ice seemed like the perfect playset to use!

Join Nik and Boris (diplomatic liaisons), Bryan with a Y and Bernice (happily married) and Nancy (definitely not CIA) as they unravel a twisted conspiracy formed around the usually pretty uneventful McMurdo Sound Research Base…

Fiasco Ep 2: The Pit Pt 2

Special guests Tim and Mel join Liberation Industries for our first Halloween Special!

As the hull falls apart, the Saddleback is boarded by hostile forces, and the Box gives more of its ominous gifts, everything seems lost for the crew and civilians at the bottom of the North Sea. So… why does all this feel like it is going to plan?

For this Fiasco game we used the Objective Zebra playbook, available from the Bully Pulpit Games website. Fiasco is an old favourite for the Liberation Industries crew, and as Lovecraft enthusiasts the nods to The Temple in this playset made us very happy.

Cacheing In

Heya folks. Got some good news and some bad news.

Bad news is that I didn’t have enough bandwidth to publish the final installment of Devil John at the end of the month. Part of that is the funny alignment of the Gregorian Calendar and my fortnightly publishing cycle, and part of it is the addition of playtest info to give as much data for the Devil John’s development as possible.

Whichever reason is responsible, the next episode will be delayed a week.

The good news is that I was able to use the tail end of my bandwidth to archive an old production of Satyros Comedy Society, the whacked out radio play Jerks in Space. First four episodes are up, and you can expect the others in the near future.

Couldn’t leave you without some entertainment, now could we?
