It's time to head to a world of dragons and friendship, guided by Yako in the GM seat!  This is a character creation episode, where we meet our six dragons: the slow but reliable craftsman Darn (Kyle), the eager and loyal daredevil Jagi (Holly), the menacing but empathetic seer Luka (show newcomer Trin), the friendly, insectoid academic Yorne (show newcomer Setsu), the spiny and proud warrior Tokarz (Jovian), and the spindly, shy nature adept Fegios (Bee).  We learn a bit about the world and a lot about our heroes.

This episode is a teaser for the bonus campaign we are running as part of our Patreon campaign.  If you pledge $5, you'll get two episodes per month, each one alternating between the two dragon clutches!  We hope you enjoy this laid-back and tonally lighter show from us as we move into our grittier second season.

It was a difficult and costly battle, but as the dust clears our heroes still stand.  For the first time the whole city sees them as heroes.  As the dust clears and the heroes recover, they will find a city that adores them and ample time to recover and grow.  Danger looms on the horizon, but it can wait for another time-- today, the team celebrates victory.

Next Friday, Sept 15, at 7:00PM Eastern Time, we'll be doing a live postmortem on our first season of Masks, where we'll discuss our feelings on it.  During the show, we'll also do a Q&A of user-submitted questions.  We've gotten several already, but you can still submit your own in one of these ways:

The postmortem will be available for viewing on Twitch.  We hope to see you there!

The final battle wages on.  Revelations are had and drastic actions are taken.  Everything the Final Hazard has faced lead to this moment; from Papa DeSnott giving himself to A.E.G.I.S. to save his son to Yoshiko's misguided attempts to use herself as bait to draw out Ashe.  Their journey has been one marked by sacrifice, yet as they come to terms with that there are still sacrifices left to make.

This is our penultimate episode of our first season of Masks. The last one is an epilogue, to be released next week, which has no dice rolling or other mechanics.  Thank you so much for listening to us!  And thanks to Magpie Games and Brendan Conway for making such an excellent game.

The stage is set.  The pieces are in place.  The stakes are high.

No more distractions, no more preparations-- it's time for Halcyon City's maligned teenagers to fight the fallen superhero, Ashe.

00:0000:00

The Final Hazard has failed to get the drop on their enemies-- they are now scattered over Halcyon and forced to contend with Arch.rr and Ashe at the same time.  Epoch and Reversal decide to head for the city, hoping to aid Shibuya and the newly-released Black Cavalier, while Doomzone attempts to infiltrate Arch.rr laboratories with the help of Dr. Vile and Beckett.  Will reinforcements arrive downtown fast enough to prevent any major tragedies from befalling the citizens?  And what's Lightningrod planning?

00:0000:00

After the Spring Fling, our heroes part ways, recovered and resolved to carry out their mission against Arch.rr headquarters.  They meet up the following day in order to plan their attack, with one party creating a diversion and the other journeying into the depths of the company to rescue the kidnapped superheroes and Kathy Petrie.  Yet secrets still threaten to tear the operation asunder-- Archer Fletcher still has plans of his own, to say nothing of Celeste "Shibuya" Blake...

The Final Hazard has a lot on their minds, and heavy hearts, but time marches forward and before they know it, it's time for the school dance.  Can the team forget their troubles for a few hours?  Will they manage not to embarass their dates?  Who will take home the coveted title of Spring Fling King or Queen?

It's the day of the Spring Fling, but that doesn't mean it's time for rest.  Epoch has gotten some terrifying news from Diamond Joe and the pieces are falling into place:  Black Cavalier must be confronted.  She has different ideas, however, and mid-conversation runs off to meet someone she has been itching to meet for a long time...

00:0000:00

As the Spring Fling looms ever closer, the team finds a moment to be teenagers and worry about the dance.  Dav, Beckett, Celeste and Abby hit the mall to buy nice clothes, and Celeste visits the food court to meet with her mysterious date.  Even Davey gets a call from an unexpected someone looking for a Spring Fling +1.  Unfortunately, Kim and Yoshiko have more pressing things to worry about: Kim finds a certain trio while looking for a place to sleep, and Yoshiko must conceal her vastly increased abilities from the rest of the team...

00:0000:00

After Epoch's strange surge of power, the team is left with many questions-- most of which Epoch does not have an answer for himself.  Kathy Petrie sits the team down and interviews each member individually (save for the still-missing Black Cavalier).  This goes about as well as one might expect, but there is a surprising boon...
