Campaign is long-form actual play podcast. Our current series Campaign: Skyjacks takes place in an original setting inspired by folktales and classic adventure fiction. Join Liz Anderson, John Patrick Coan, Tyler Davis, Johnny O’Mara, and gamemaster James D’Amato as they tell a tale of daring sky pirates. … Also it’s basically an elaborate re-telling of Weekend at Bernie’s.
Someone from Jonnit's past arrives to pick him up and take him home while a calamitous racket unfolds within the ship. Travis races to exit The Uhuru before growing to a form too large to comfortably fit through the doors. The others try to mitigate the chaos in order to keep up appearances and support Jonnit.
The Uhuru lands in Akaron! Gable manages the crew, Orimar manages his hatchling griffin, Jonnit tries to manage his feelings and appearance to return home, and Travis... performs a dangerous magical experiment that is sure to cause a huge problem for everyone. Welcome to the new arc!
James reflects on the most recent arc! Comparing his vision and goals to how it all worked out in execution. There were some unique production challenges and choices that made it change significantly along the way. There were also plans that turned out significantly better than anyone could have imagined!
Jonnit awakens to find a gift from Teacher Wei and a message from the rest of the Uhuru crew inviting him to join them in one of the famed Deauxmignon bathhouses for relaxation and boatmilk. The crew takes some time to relax and reflect after a tense arrival full of danger and adventure.
At The River, plans are made and paths are set. Travis enacts his trade with Raoul while The Rusalka makes an offer to Gable, before Orimar presents The Rusalka with a deal of his own. Jonnit and Wei continue their dream walk, witnessing the betrayal that set Wei on their current path. All the while, evil encroaches.
Travis, armed with the information of the true version of his story, must repay The Rusalka and free Raoul. To do this, he must craft a ritual and call upon his power as The Changeling. Meanwhile, Jonnit relives the moment he received the angel feather from Hip, when he touched it and first became a seer. Tragically his sacrifice in Burza Nyth means that he cannot see or remember the man who meant so much to him.
The Rusalka tells Travis and the others The Changling's Tale and the way his story has been broken. Travis is left with the unsettling weight of what his mother stole from him and the question of what to do about it. Teacher Wei shows Jonnit the memory of the night in Janchi that led them to seek training in poetry from the liquid swords and to the event that would grant them the gift of a blind seer's eye.
Jonnit shows Teacher Wei his life in Akaron around the time his mother disappeared and the way his father handled the loss and a struggling farm. Travis, Gable, and Orimar encounter The Rusalka who offers them useful information in exchange for varying favors. They must decide if it is wise to take bargains from the luminary of temptation.
