Here we see more evidence that the trip wasn’t a bonding experience for most of the characters. There are definite seeds of tension that will play heavily in future episodes. However, in the final scene, if appears that when the chips are down, they’re all still in this together… mostly.

There was certainly a lot to digest in this first session of season 3, as well as a lot of “firsts” for our characters 2/3 of the way through their journey to the Animal Preserve. 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. There are sure to be more “firsts” for both players and characters in the rest of the season.
