Episode 58: OPSEC Part I

Cut off from all aid with the Coyote Ramblers and the Cartel in the rear view mirror, and Pierce in the throes of an occult nightmare from which he seems unable to wake, our Operatives have seen better days. But there's still a chance of finding the help they need at DATCON, if they play their cards right.

The convention is a hive of digital scum and villainy, and just the place to find the kind of hired gun they require. However, there's more going on at the convention than is suggested in any program or itinerary, and our operatives may be walking into dangers they don't yet understand...

Episode 54: Retrieval Part II

With her life now saved by Freya and Rhett's decisive aid, Atalanta outlines a plan to use an experimental psychic technique to locate a significant person who she was unable to secure in the aftermath of ORPHEUS's decimation.

As the time for her next task approaches, Atalanta also focuses her attention on helping prepare Rhett and Freya for their mission to retrieve a trove of data, a cache of weapons, and to locate people with sympathies to the Maenad cause

And this mission, it seems, will take our Agents far from home.

Maenad Directive agents Freya Benton and Rhett Bordeaux lay low in a safe house in Red River Gorge, Kentucky while awaiting further details on their upcoming assignment from Cassandra.

Episode 52: Road Trip Part V

Pierce's side of the operation against the Cartel is already in jeopardy, as seemingly supernaturally powered enforcers from the Cartel proper take charge of the defectors and release some kind of eldritch working that shakes Pierce to his core.

Mitch, Kiera, and Jack are left to pick up the pieces as the operation's parameters are thrown into chaos, and a pitched battle between the two gangs (and their hidden supernatural payloads) begins to look more and more inevitable.

Patreon Announcement

In case you didn't hear at the end of the First Anniversary Q&A Special:

After a long time considering it, we're finally pulling the trigger on this Patreon launch. There are a lot of reasons for this, which you'll hear in the announcement, and a lot of exciting opportunities for the future of ORPHEUS, as well.

Every single listener has been a part of what's made this all possible, and we can never thank you enough.

First Anniversary Q&A Special

TheCalebG of The RPG Academy fame hosts a (very, very) long Q&A session and retrospective on this, the anniversary of The ORPHEUS Protocol's release.

Staci, Dan, Jhan and I join Caleb as we look back on the project from its humble beginnings to its perhaps overambitious present, take some great questions from the listeners, and act a bit silly.

It's been a hell of a year, and we have you, the listeners, to thank.
