Okay, maybe not everyone. But I sure as hell do. "The Shudder" functions as a prologue to the ORPHEUS campaign proper, which I'm pleased to say will make its debut on Monday, December 19, 2016.
"The Shudder" was spooky (and icky!) fun, but this podcast was conceived from the beginning to tell a story of sweeping scope, from many vantage points. Not only does a long-form campaign allow us to explore such a story, but is uniquely well-suited to:
1) The kind of wheels-within-wheels, cloak and dagger convolutions expected of an espionage story
2) The slow simmer of dread, and occasional boiling over of outright terror, a longer-form horror narrative can provide
And last, but not least:
3) Organic and meaningful character development such as only a tabletop campaign can offer.
I can't wait for all you folks to meet Kiera, Mitch, and Pierce. As someone fortunate enough to have journeyed with them through many horrors, triumphs, and tragedies, I'm positively giddy for the chance to introduce them to the world.
Stay tuned for much much more.
