057: Better Homes and Starships

With the cultist base empty, the RFC crew decide it’s time to move on… and do some shopping! After months of adventuring it’s finally time to upgrade the Sunrise Maiden. Of course, the gang has different ideas as to what should be upgraded. Hirogi and Mo want railguns and missile launchers, Tuttle has his eyes on a new science bay, while Rusty just wants/needs luxurious crew quarters. Decisions, decisions!

056: Rage Against The Machine

Confusion abounds this week where the PCs attack their allies as often as the bad guys. Plus, more face melting traps! But the end is in sight as the PCs have run out of cultist base to explore… and yet still no leads.

Also for this week’s GM/PC Tip, Stephen explores the concept of rolling for all skill checks vs. “just giving it to the PCs”.
