Another long episode with a lot of information – 17 hours worth – whew!!!

Good information and sorry… No they did not find it to fight it…

The subject of the name could have been brought in sooner (not until the last episode), just like the mission in the Mask of the Funeral Clown.

Great to hear the player Jonathan; he does an excellent job as the Keeper in Dockside Dogs – a great listen (even though he spells his name different :-) )

For those who listen and like a more straight forward serious gaming tone, there must have been something put in the Mountain Dew as the group started getting all giggles towards the end of this session and started turning into a Friday night gaming drunkfest – this got me side tracked so I just continued to listen non-stop.

Though a lot of information, there was still bloodshed… But whose? Crazy Romans, monsters, or between Flamma and Sollus? – to be continued…

After listening to Scion of Vulcan, it started feeling like “The Legacy of Arrius Lurco” did not even have a Call of Cthulhu feel to it. Sure there were all those Sanity rolls that are associated with Call of Cthulhu, but it just seemed like another investigative D&D scenario.

Time to finish it up with 14 hours of “A Second Theseus”.
