Sorry its so late my bad so many Podcasts so little time :)
But a happy belated anniversary guys a whole year gone already wow that was fast.
It was great to hear from Ed again if only for a one shot and it was fun to hear this creepy adventure from Britannica brought to life.
Looking forward to year 2 and again thanks to players past,present and future for all the Insanity.

P.S Great intro Jim.

Thanks for continuing to listen Mark. This was a fun time, but really - they all are.

Was looking forward to hearing the podcast of the players playing kids... (reminds me of the RPG "Little Fears") But I see from the info in 009 - The Plantation 01 (Providence Cycle), that the podcast was lost...

So I looked in the section called "One Shots" and thought I would give them a shot. Har Har 3 hours was a bit better than another 7-15 hour adventure. ~quick fix

Good one-year anniversary intro as it got me confused to what podcast I was listen to; the players from Mr. Corbett were introducing their characters and it was not the ones listed on the King's Dramatis Persone's section; then I figured it out. :-) ~DOI

Good intro by the players of who and what they were playing as the Dramatis Persone did not say what their jobs were. :-(

O... M... G...

Right from the git-go, this podcast kept me glued to my ear-buds. Awesome!!! (Human Centipede comment, worms under the bandages, no window behind the blinds, bloody torn apart )

But then...

It seemed to wind-down after they entered into the elevator. A bit confusing what was going on down below. Rewind to listen again.

Randall was playing great... Loved his insanity rolls and result down below.

Mike was a bit on the long winded talking side.

Thanks again Jonathon, your detailed comments are certainly very much appreciated. King was a interesting scenario. Great set up and initial mystery, but I would agree it does kind of falter towards the end.

Best one-shot. Ever.

I think just ditch the men in black at the very end and leave everything a mystery. Physically the ones that survive are fine and any investigation they do turns up nothing. Except for their eyesight being better, and their horrific nightmares, it's as if it never happened.

World Traveller Jim said...

Thanks Anthony. Its a bit weird because the scenario itself does not actually give the MIB ending. Rather, there are some author comments at the end along the lines of "In play testing we did ..." which I think is where that ending came from. But yeah - I would tend to agree that's better left out.

OMG - Last time I listened to one the SoC Podcasts was 5-31-16 - almost 4 years ago.

Time to get back and start listening again - only 436 episode behind now. :-(

So what would be better than listening to King - one of the best horror one shots by the group - though I think Dockside Dogs might be one of the best one I have listened to by the group.


Looking forward to more interesting/exciting/funny ad libs by the group...
