- 4: S L I D E Ways Session 4: That's Really Super, Supergirl part two.

- 5: Savaged Delta Green 05: The past catches up with Burgess and he's not happy to see it, whereas it's business as usual for Mas and Afya, but do any of them really understand what happened seven years ago beneath the sands of Iraq?

- Savage Worlds: Sundered Skies Session 00: Character generation for the game of flying ships and floating islands adrift in the madness-inducing void, by Dave Blewer and Triple Ace Games.
- Sundered Skies 01: All Aboard!
Join us in a world of flying ships, floating island fragments and the ever-present glow of the mind-melting void, as our motley crew assemble to take the first job they can in a quest for honour, salvage and anything to keep the two nosy lizards happy. It looks like a simple case of tracking down a lost sailor, but you know how these things go...

- 4: Death Cult World: What could go wrong?
- 5: A Fishing Expedition: On to sunny Torpol, recreation world to the gentry (or Space Wigan).

- 9: A Back Street, But Still Semi Upper Class, Cybernetics Parlour: We make it to the pirate world of Theev, and start our enquiries. Oddly, this involves a seedy space bar.

- 11: The Fumbling Man in the Turny Chair: Coming back after a break, we suddenly seem to have got dangerously competent.
- 12: In Bed with Roger: We finally take on the dreaded Ferrik Redthane. Who will live? Who will die? Who will get the best footage for the newsreels?
- 0: Character Generation: 42 years of history in a little over an hour - and our brave heroes start to take shape.

- 2: 485 b - The Battle of Mearcred Creek: The new-made knights join Uther's forces in fighting the Saxons. Well, it could have gone worse.
- 3: 486 - Sword Lake: The knights are kept back from fighting Saxons, and ride the bounds of Salisbury. Merlin makes everything more complicated.
- 4: 487 a - Lindsey Embassy: The knights go on an embassy with the King, and nobody dies in spite of their best efforts.
- 5: 487 b - Malahaut Embassy: On to Eburacum! What is it about turning up to visit, the people you came to see always seem to be out...
- 6: 488 - To Frankland: The knights cross the British Sea as part of Madoc's army, and find out the other reason why he's called a bastard.
- 7: 489 - Excalibur's Peace: The knights travel to Devon in hope of a battle... and don't get the one they expect.

- 10: 492 - Three Weddings and a Kidnapping: On garrison duty in Tintagel over winter, and then things get strange.

- 15: 495 - The Battle of St Albans and the Infamous Feast: A highly glorious battle for these veteran knights. But it's the after party that gets you.
- 1: A Scientific Demonstration: The team of seasoned investigators spends some time avoiding the plot, but is finally drawn in... to Barrow in Furness. Music by Kevin MacLeod at incompetech.com.
- 2: An Inquest and a Sentry: Stymied from gathering information by our vow never to follow obvious clues, we attend an inquest and chase an old rumour.
- 3: Into the Pit: Boldly investigating, we find that others have been here before us. And are still here.
- 4: HMS Selene: As Cthalloweenulhu turns into Cthismulhu, we finally start getting into the sanity-losing part of the adventure.
- 5: Under the Pyramid: Into the unknown... no, no, the even more unknown.

- 1: Murder Penis: One year later, the surviving investigators are getting on with their lives, when an old flame calls up with a confused story of madness and, well, more madness.
- 2: Death Chicken: All we have to do is guard two people. How hard can it be?
- 3: Stiffarium: Complications, and we wonder what to do next. Fortunately, the police have that worked out for us.
- 4: Now That You've Got a Door, Perhaps You Can Lock It: Someone has a book they probably shouldn't have, so the mild-mannered party goes off to get some information out of him and deprive him of it. You won't believe what happens next. Or at least we don't.
- 5: Feeling It For Daddy: Things are becoming clearer. Or at least as clear as they can be when you have 7% Cthulhu Mythos. There will probably be dynamite involved.
- 6: Murder: Is It Worth It to Save the World?: A good old-fashioned Whartson Hall Flounder, taking some dark turns as we realise that whatever happens we're all doomed.
- 7: The Best We Can Do: A mildly unexpected turn into murder, animal abuse and dynamite. Well, all right, the dynamite wasn't unexpected.
- 8: The Elephant in the Room: The triumphant conclusion, in which we all do what we do best.
- 0: Of the Tipperary Zarkovs: Character generation as three grognards look suspiciously at the funny dice
- 1: Extreme Duck Rubbing: It's always tricky waking up after a nice long nap. The gunfire, the jammed doors, the weird dice.
- 2: Totally Tubular Groundhog: A fray, a fray! And we end up feeling fairly frayed, so we seek shelter and find more problems.
- 3: It was spicy, but...: The friendlies (combined with our inexperience) are more dangerous than the enemies. And we find out what Nick has been fantasising about since Twilight 2000.
- 4: Spanner to the Head: On the road again. Barely-competent bandits meet incompetent us. Maybe if we had a gun bunny in the party...
- 5: Hickbillies: Now we have a combat specialist, it'll all be much easier - oh.
- 6: A Well Known Risk of Listening Too Hard: Back into the fray, this time with a little more success.
- 7: Nobody's Going To Eat Anybody: A successful fight, for a change! And moving on, with Subtlety Nouveau.
- 8: This is not CSI Post Apocalypse: Out of the frying pan, into the nuclear fire
- 0: Long-Distance Countryside Bums: Character generation in the dark future of 2020. Which these days looks worryingly optimistic.
- 1: A Trip Up Your Own Well: Final bits of character generation, and we even start the adventure!
- 2: Come Down in the Gutter and Lick My Way of Life: Betrayal, murder, pool. Just another night in the City. Caution, may contain mallard genitalia.
- 3: Lightly Armoured Ball Gown: We try the combat system. HOW much damage?
- 4: A Learning Experience: How hard can it be to hit a guy with a car door? Or indeed to get out of a car? Or defuse a bomb? OK, that one may be quite hard.
- 5: Bringing a Missile to a Knife Fight: Leaving a trail of dead beautiful women like so many blown roses behind him...
- 6: My Clem Fandango is Clepwhackered: The real world is more advanced than the game world, but nonetheless some progress is made. As with so many adventures, it comes down to someone hanging around the docks...
- 7: Crowding Around the Ice Cream Cake: Bleed out on the docks, or set up a party in a luxury hotel? The somewhat murdery conclusion.
- 8: Subterfuge, But In A Murdery Way: A new job sees the team travel to a tropical paradise to pick up a sample of a new medical product. What could go wrong?
- 9: Flip On the Pain Editor: Into the lab with a slightly mad researcher and lots of guns. This can't possibly go wrong. Who's a pretty corporate spy then?
- 10: Personal Grooming Is Not a Pop-Tart: Time for a daring escape! All we need now is a plan.
- 11: Can I Get a Swimming Chip?: Board the ship, take a sample, back home for machine oil and medals. It'll be fine.

- 14: Standard Reference Pharaoh: Investigating the British clues. Why don't we trust a man we haven't even met?
- 15: Rhythmic Pumping from Below: Or, Penetrating Penhew. Well, not the man himself. That would be silly.
- 16: A Hand Up the Greasy Chute: The penetration of Penhew continues, and we meet an unexpected ally.
- 17: A Man-Sized Hole in the Norfolk Fens: We make some plans. They probably aren't good plans. But they will be lots of fun.
- 18: Just About to Go All Sid James: The Blue Pyramid is not quite as we expect. For one thing, it's not on fire even when we leave it.
- 19: When A Man is Tired of Taking Cover in London: We trust nobody. But they do seem to be leading us in dangerous directions, so what-ho.
- 20: Take You Up the Naze: We start to plumb the mysteries of Misr House. For which the most important piece of equipment is a decent-quality fountain pen and an official-looking notebook.
- 21: Covered in Burning Crepe: All goes well. Until it doesn't. Fortunately we have a shotgun.
