Episode 7-2: The Great Sea Cucumber

As they voyage towards Cuttlefish Island, Euan, Heather, James and Ross take some time to get to know their crewmates, uncovering many dark secrets in the process. How did Earlobe’s earlobe get like that? Why does nobody talk to the bard? And why does Captain Beardbeard seem intent on sailing them off the edge of the map? Alliances will be forged, pointless games of deceit will be played, and the entire system of piratical power relations will be called into question in this, the middle chapter of our most water-themed adventure since the last one!

Episode 7-1: The Voyage of Captain Beardbeard

We’re back! Euan, Heather, James and new guy Ross are summoned to Mrs Molefield’s shop to help her … bake a pie? It can’t be as simple as that – and sure enough, it isn’t. Before they know what’s going on they are in a seedy tavern bartering with a pirate captain for passage to a remote island. It is no small task for the players to prove themselves to the salty old sea dog, but as Ross makes abundantly clear, he is willing to do anything.

Anything.

From left to right: James, Heather, Alex, Ross, Euan. But don’t think we dressed up as pirates just for this podcast! That would be silly and undignified! No, no, no, we were… we were having a pirate party…

Episode 6-3: S.E.B.A.S.T.I.A.N

Celebrate the festive season by joining Euan, Gavin, Heather and Stuart for the conclusion to their not-particularly-festive adventure in Atlantis Library! Squeal with delight as they finally make it to the library’s most restricted section! Gasp with horror at the revelations that take place there! Roll your eyes with impatience as Stuart tries to remember the title of a book and won’t let Gavin look it up! Scratch your armpit as you find out what all that S.E.B.A.S.T.I.A.N foreshadowing was about! Eat some Christmas pudding as the credits roll at the end! Pull a cracker after the episode is finished! From there on, pretty much go about your life as normal, but a little bit happier! These are all just suggestions, of course.

Our next adventure will be out some time in the new year, hopefully while it is still relatively new. In the meantime, however you choose to spend your Decembers/Januaries, have a lovely time, and don’t be a stranger!

Episode 6-2: The Lonely Little Seahorse

Having successfully tapped John Knox’s beard (oo-er), Euan, Gavin, Heather and Stuart continue their journey through the Marmite-smelling secret passageways of Atlantis library. This time they’ll contend with a fussy bookworm, Stuart’s uncontrollable urge to turn into a bat at every possible opportunity, and a logic puzzle like that one near the end of the first Harry Potter book. You know, the one with the potions. But it’s totally not ripped off from there. Or if it is, that’s okay because it’s an homage. This is a very literary adventure, after all. (Did I get away with that?)

Episode 6-1: Dust Bunnies

When Dullston-on-Sea is gripped by an unusual crime wave, Euan, Gavin and Heather drag Stuart before Mrs Molefield for judgement. She decides it is time to do what they should have done a year ago, and sends them off to find an important book. But it’ll take more than a library card to check this one out, as they quickly discover when they are confronted with evil dust bunnies, linguistically demanding ticket machines and the continued, heartbreaking absence of Jerry the Number Elf.

Having lost their gnomish friend, Euan, Gavin, Heather and Stuart plunge deeper into the temple in their search for stone tablets, antidote and cheap laughs at the expense of unfortunate rival explorers.
