We (re)introduce you to the shadowy world of the game, introduce Mike and Rob's characters (earlier episodes this season discuss Lars Hermaan [Adam's PC] and Inquisitor Romero Vae [Alex's])

Then its into the campaign: The Heart of Petragard

3 interlinked sprawling games of table top narrative RPG action in M42.

This was a whole lot of fun so thank you for listening! If you want to follow along to the narrative game reports our twitter ( @angelcastAOS ) has the scoop with a LOT of photographs of the models on the tables. Seriously excellent terrain thanks to George and Alex and huge thank you to George for writing and GMing the whole thing.
