1: Alien RPG - Destroyer of Worlds - Episode 01 "Larry's Bear Claw"

* Disclaimer - This is a pretty rough episode from a sound engineering standpoint. This was one of our first attempts to record an episode and we had some real problems. So if you are really interested please listen but don't judge us on this audio. It gets noticeably better by Episode 4 so if you want to skip this episode, we understand, but come back later to learn the origin of the bear claw. Larry didn't like getting stuck on guard duty out in the insurgent compound’s courtyard. He didn't like the cold, the wind, and the snow. Larry was pretty sure he was going to freeze his ass off before his shift was over. Still, there was hope, because Larry had two very important things that were going to make this day alright: 1- A cup of piping hot coffee and 2- A fresh and delicious bear claw. Larry held up the bear claw ready to take that wondrous first bite of fresh pastry that would make him forget about his shitty luck...and then the Player Characters showed up.

The brave squad of Colonial Marines just need to take the space elevator from Ft. Nebraska to the orbital station but first, they'll need to defeat the Alien Queen and her deadly minions. This ends our test story. We think that we have come a long way since losing the entire audio for the first two episodes (that’s right, it should have been 11 total episodes). Thanks to the cast for bringing a colorful and somewhat disturbed group of characters to life. Thanks to Nathan for being Game Mommy and for countless hours learning the ins and outs of audio/video capture and editing.
