Explorers Wanted

Explorers Wanted

We are a weekly actual play podcast using the Numenera (http://numenera.com) Discovery and Destiny rules. Set one billion years in the future, we journey across the Ninth World. There have been eight worlds before this, where civilizations rose to intergalactic heights only to fall into ashes, leaving a world of strange relics behind them. Join our ragtag crew of messy adventurers as they navigate weird ruins, contend with criminal intrigue, and ignore their own better judgment... Repeatedly.

    This is a session zero we recorded 1-1 with Atalia to explore her past and the events that let up to the campaign. We borrowed the Sooth Deck mechanic from Invisible Sun for the giggles.

    NOTE: This is an early recording and so there may be occasional background noise not present in the usual episodes, but it was so fun we had to share.

    BONUS EPISODE!!!! This one is a Session Zero recorded as a 1-1 with ChaCha to explore her early days before the start of the campaign. As we did last time, we use the Invisible Sun Sooth Deck for this one.

    Also, when we recorded our Session Zero's our sound setup was not as good as it is for the normal episodes, so please bear with us if you hear some background noise that normally would not appear.

    This was just a gag trailer that Daniel created for the cast based on some of the early recordings. The improvisation in ChaCha's session zero that led to the hatred of juggling was too good for him to ignore and so he envisioned an AU where the BBEG is a master juggler.

      Sympathy Pains

      Hosted by Laura Beil (Dr. Death, Bad Batch), Sympathy Pains is a six-part series from Neon Hum Media and iHeartRadio. For 20 years, Sarah Delashmit told people around her that she had cancer, muscular dystrophy, and other illnesses. She used a wheelchair and posted selfies from a hospital bed. She told friends and coworkers she was trapped in abusive relationships, or that she was the mother of children who had died. It was all a con. Sympathy was both her great need and her powerful weapon. But unlike most scams, she didn’t want people’s money. She was after something far more valuable.
