The CAMPAIGN podcast is an actual play podcast where a small, consistent group of Chicago nerds get together to record role-playing games. It is hosted by Kat Murphy. CAMPAIGN focuses on long-form or “campaign” gaming. By this, we mean that each week, Kat leads a team of improvisers (James D’Amato, John Patrick Coan, and Johnny O’Mara) through a continuous story that could take months or even years to complete. CAMPAIGN is currently set in the Star Wars universe, and uses the Edge of the Empire gaming system. If CAMPAIGN has a goal, it’s to show how character-driven storytelling can positively impact all classic elements of long-form analogue gaming, and turn out a compelling and entertaining narrative.
Gable and Travis are wrapped in 200 years worth of complicated tension and realize if they want to help Jonnit they will need to find a way to resolve it. Jonnit faces down The Mariner. Everyone who rushes to his defense is driven back by the hateful p...
Travis does that totally reasonable thing and takes some time to yell at Gable in the middle of a battle with The Mariner. Meanwhile, Jonnit and Margaret face off against La Llorona together only to discover that she isn’t alone.
Jonnit meets up with Margret but still being under the effects of The Underswell they will need more than a bit of luck to get to safety. Out in the bay waves crash to pull the rest of The Mariner’s fleet into Nordia’s shores and the Uhuru Death Chart ...
Margaret desperately defends herself from a group of drowned sailors while trying to make her way to safety. La Llorona the Drowned calls forth The Underswell to make Jonnit more easy prey. Then it basically becomes the Ryan Lochte show for a while bec...
Toku faces down the water knives of La Llorina to defend fleeing civilians. We check in with the pirates who have taken Il Sangue Dio and the crew members riding griffins above the battlefield. Travis fights some boys.
Gable leads a contingent of Uhuru Pirates to hold back the procession of drowned sailors moving up the staircase towards the civilians in Upper Nordia. Travis and Marget reach safety up on the walls… for like five seconds before Travis screws it up.
Tavis and Margaret brave the raging current to try and cross the bridge to Upper Nordia as the Drowned Fleet makes landfall behind them. Ryan Lochte foolishly convinces a cohort of Uhuru scouts to draw away numbers from the Drowned Sailors.
After restoring his hand, Travis has one more choice to make. Gable, Jonnit, The Uhuru Crew, and the whole of Nordia brace for The Mariner’s arrival. The seas boil and the dark of the storm is set alight by cannon fire and Ghostlight.
Gable takes a veritable who’s who of fan-favorite characters to try and capture Il Sangue Dio because Liz Anderson plays chicken with Fate. Jonnit helps the people of Adriane’s congregation create barricades between Upper and Lower Nordia.
With no indication of when The Drowned fleet might make landfall our heroes scramble to prepare. Jonnit tries to get Adriane to use her influence to clear the square, Gable considers what it might take to commandeer Il Sangue Dio,
