Our rogues gallery, as this time we have left the Demiurge to do his own scut-work:

Belle Summers, a hardened and ambitious bounty hunter, devoted templar of Toren the Strong.

Padre Callehandro, an ill starred and haunted priest, vessel to Thoth’char the Patient.

Joe, an escaped slave and once holy man, labelled “the Blackfoot” by his pursuers and favoured goad of the terrifying Smiling Jim.

Leyla Kensington, a falsely accused sororicide hunting her tormentors in the footsteps of Thane the Vengeful.

Lottie, a well bred young woman lost to madness, now companion to the charming Mr Alistaire.

The setting is Benevolence, a slowly dying former trading town with a bordello full of spies, animals getting far too clever, and a decrepit gravedigger who knows just a little too much…

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.
