Episode 17 – Xany, the Brexited Scientist Who’ll Be Back With An Army of Robots

  Back to basics with this episode. No crazy Actual Play with multiple sound effects and other editing craziness.

Episode 14 – Parental Advisory Required In Nomine Satanis Magna Veritas (with July)

  Sorry for the slight delay with this episode. It involved a lot of editing (by the way the generous Patreon supporters will have access to the whole "unedited" four hours of Actual Play).
