Braving the terrors and wonders of the Plane of Animals and Agriculture is no easy task, even for seasoned adventurers like Domingo and Urdan. Will they be able to face down salad veg intent on their lives and still make it home with their Chillybin of Holding? In this episode we commit crimes against Dungeons and Dragons 5th Edition, and their corporate overlords, some kind of beach-bum sorcerer coven.

In a glorious feast of cookery, wild food and gently trottering the line of copyright infringement, Urdan the Wood Elf Ranger and Domingo the Anthropig Mathematician are invited into the mighty cookery stadium to participate in the greatest culinary contest the planes have ever seen: Sigil Chef! Haute Cuisine! This session was powered by Dungeons and Dragons 5th Edition, basically stretched to the point it was unrecognisable, grilled and then served on a bed of mashed potato and chives with a citrus vinaigrette.

With the smuggling drop turned Spectre ambush raising more questions than answers, unquiet spirits Riddle, Emerich and Minerva start to dig into the underground of Edinburgh's Renegade ghosts. Wraith the Oblivion, aka the Big Grey Book of Depressing, is part of the Old World of Darkness range. The White Wolf that produced it is about as dead as our PCs. And we're using a hacked Chronicles of Darkness engine, cause its easier. Pic is memento mori by kaelin on Flickr, CC A SA.info_outline Wraith Ep 1: No Evil Thing Pt 1
In the deep shadows of Edinburgh's moonlit streets, three of the unquiet dead heed the call of a mysterious Underworld benefactor. On the trail of a stolen cache of soul-steel, will Riddle, Emerich and Minerva be ready for the truth behind it? Wraith the Oblivion is one of the Old World of Darkness series, and is one of the densest roleplaying texts we have ever had to grapple with. There's some good stuff in there, but... oof.

The dark turns of our story come to their ending, and one final question is asked of the posse dogging Devil John's fleeing footsteps; who is the man... and who is the pig?
Our rogues gallery, as this time we have left the Demiurge to do his own scut-work:
Belle Summers, a hardened and ambitious bounty hunter, devoted templar of Toren the Strong.
Padre Callehandro, an ill starred and haunted priest, vessel to Thoth'char the Patient.
Joe, an escaped slave and once holy man, labelled "the Blackfoot" by his pursuers and favoured goad of the terrifying Smiling Jim.
Leyla Kensington, a falsely accused sororicide hunting her tormentors in the footsteps of Thane the Vengeful.
Lottie, a well bred young woman lost to madness, now companion to the charming Mr Alistaire.
The setting is Benevolence, a slowly dying former trading town with a bordello full of spies, animals getting far too clever, and a decrepit gravedigger who knows just a little too much...
