The Chimera

The Chimera

An actual play rpg podcast in which old friends get together to tell strange stories. Season one (Storypath, pre-release): Follow an obsessive technophile and her crew of alien misfits--a bodyguard with a checkered past; a feline warrior and reluctant heretic; a disgraced lawyer bound to a mysterious mech; and a financial instrument with a mind of her own--as they explore the universe in search of purpose and profit, aboard a living starship filled with ancient secrets. Season two (Dungeons & Dradons, 4e, heavily modified): In the city of Greyhawk, five individuals are united by circumstance: a brewer priest, a haunted swordsman, a living relic, a caustic criminal, and a golem without a past. Their lives are about to be turned upside-down by the drawing of a single card.

There is only one inevitability in role-playing games, and it is that you will, eventually, have to grapple.

(Warning: this episode contains explicit cat-on-frankenstein first base action)

Hey, gang. No new episode this week--there's obviously a lot going on in the world, and I was already having brain issues on top of it, so instead we're going to take a second to encourage everyone to do what you can to help move the world in the right direction.


Right now, people around the world are protesting the deaths of unarmed black folks at the hands of the police. George Floyd and Breonna Taylor are just the tip o...

Come buy our orchard fruits,

Come buy, come buy:

Apples and quinces,

Lemons and oranges,

Plump unpeck’d cherries,

Melons and raspberries,

Bloom-down-cheek’d peaches,

Swart-headed mulberries,

Wild free-born cranberries,

Crab-apples, dewberries,

Pine-apples, blackberries,

Apricots, strawberries;—

All ripe together

In summer weather,—

Morns that pass by,

Fair eves that fly

Hey, gang! As we've mentioned a couple times, we're making some changes to our Patreon, and I wanted to take just a couple quick minutes to go over what we're doing and why.

We had originally intended to slowly ramp up our Patreon rewards so we'd have several different regular monthly things, but last year turned out to be a total mess for me, specifically, and then this year has turned out to be a total mess for ev...
