It’s the long-awaited return to Consiglio in this episode. There’s smoke, fire, blizzards, huge gusts of wind that can lift a tank, and blood in the streets… literally. It’s been a few months since the group has been there, but they quickly learn that their faces have not been forgotten.

About a day’s journey from Consiglio, the group does some scouting in the underground town of Dinfor. All is not well the North Bellasaira, but that’s not a total surprise as their exit from the city months before did indeed spark a revolution. One of the party is recognized by the military, and they again have to make a quick escape on the final leg back to the capital city.

Then, this group of newbies  also have to escape a crisis in the Gate Room, and end off-world  without a full mission briefing. What could go wrong?

We comment on a first for the players in a different mode of storytelling. We really enjoyed the mystery and intrigue that this latest non-linear format brought to the table, and we hope you did as well.

BTT EoW 2.41: Commentary 10

EOW S2

Last commentary episode we speculated that a new twist was right around the corner, and oh boy, were we right. In this episode, we spend some time theorizing what this “root virus” is all about. We also discuss the reason why such an inter-personal conflict episode was inevitable at this point in the story. A lot may have been vented by the characters, but they still remain on the brink of a dark decision… killing one (at least one) of their own.
