64 – The Scarecrow

**Trigger Warning: child death, off screen violence to children, active violence 

Emily and Senda are joined by the talented Wendelyn Reischl and Camdon Wright to play The Scarecrow by Post World Games. “The Scarecrow is a story roleplaying game about isolation and superstition. Characters are children living in rural America all dealing with a local ‘legend’ about a Scarecrow, who may or may not be real.” 

Wendelyn Reischl as Carrie the Adopted Child

Camdon Wright as Gavin the Runaway Child

Senda as Rosie the Artistic Child

Emily as Mary Jo the Rancher’s Child

We recorded in person, so the audio quality is a bit different than our other games. You can also hear our imaginary cat friend Mithril meowing and bumping the mic. We’re sorry about that, but how do you stop an imaginary cat from doing anything?

63 —Masks: I Know You Think You Can Handle This

The Calvacade of Freaks save themselves and their plucky mascot Pluto from being kidnapped by the mercenary Knuckle-Duster. In their escape Kel known as Hectate advocated abandoning their caretaker Mad Maude who was then warped away from the site. Safely within the walls of a League of Super Heroes hideout our teens listen to the adult supers discuss Maude and other non-human-looking supers’ disappearances. The distressed fish-like transformed Helen Reckless demands the group save their house mother when Shryee known as Stardust gets a tingle in her alien senses.

62: Masks – Leave the Maude, Take the Dog

Under attack by mercenaries, our cavalcade of teenage superhero freaks flee the house — leaving their caretaker Mad Maude behind.
