Unfortunately I don’t have any clever ideas to answer you listener question, but I have to say that ending was a bit of a tearjerker. I will chose to imagine that they keep up that heroic spirit even through the apocalypse.
Also I wholeheartedly endorse your interpretation Hades’ child as being non-binary. No need for the personification of death to subscribe to a mortal gender norm. Plus it’s always nice to see you guys not limit yourself to only having straight cisgender characters.
This is one of the craziest games I’ve ever heard and I loved it! David’s character was, in particular, amazing and I think he’s got the mannerism of a modernized God down to perfection. I’ve already listened to podcast a couple of times.
Are these sessions going to be “flavour” for the main rotted capes campaign?
Thank you guys for the great entertainment!
Great game, though it did raise a question that I didn’t catch the answer to: who was encouraging the kids to “Wake Up!”? Was it their subconscious minds finally able to rebel now that *****’s power is finally waning?

That was a very enjoyable game to listen to. You all really drove it home well too.
Speaking of the system though – did they ever make a book for magic characters? I recall someone (Billy?) mentioned that there was a magical amulet but nothing in the core rulebook way back when.
They haven’t made a book on magical characters (yet). I mean, I have my own sort of made up rules on how you make magical based characters but it’s nothing official.
During this game my character enters a battle arena to a certain song. This is that song.
Enjoy how unbelievably awesome it is.
