    well…that was new. Byron is proving himself quite the diplomat, apparently! Very interesting episode Fandible!

    I sit here and wonder what sort of songs characters would sing if Unhallowed turned into a musical for one episode…

    I think Moira would have a song where she is standing out in a frozen garden. She would slowly pull off her mourner hat, sit down, and just give a haunting song about how wonderful her life used to be. Maybe Once Upon A December? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r1zamKoUREI

    Any ideas for scenes for other characters, Fandi-fans? How would you design Unhallowed Metropolis: Victorian Melody?

    Not the tone you were looking for, but I had scene spring to mind. It’s Byron singing a lyrically altered, but musically similar to One Jump Ahead.

    A meeting with a dangerous underworld bigwig has just turned sour and Byron is singing to the underworld boss, and then the patrons of the (extremely) seedy pub where the meeting is taking place. His One Jump Ahead is a boast about how his rivals cannot best him. Most are the rest of the long-suffering crew are busy keeping the thugs off him (often just in the nick of time). It ends, just as he is smugly about to walk out the door with an impossibly large man stepping to block it and him nnoticing just how many hate-filled eyes are on him.

    The cult have been playing the rolls as stat plus skill plus 2d10, means low skill high stat (you are naturally good at this stuff) and low stat high skill (you practice a lot) both have a place and can let you succeed!

    Some checks are stat doubled, like straight can you work out this rolls would be intellect doubled.

    Loved the “lets gang up on the French” and the calls for tea! This is exactly how a British person would respond!

    To life to life from shoggoth on the roof.

    Great episode — it’s cool seeing Byron take things more seriously.
