They also play-tested an original game system, Carbon City, by sometimes host Jared Witkofsky, who also creates original art for the show.

The actual play podcast focuses on immersive sound environments, with an original soundtrack made custom for the show. With period appropriate music as well as scene building atmospherics, the show strives to create full, lived in worlds.


Season one is a deranged and epic mystery in a fictional Small Town à la Twin Peaks meets the X Files. Season two is an apocalyptic quest set on the oceans of a dying realm. The third season is a dystopian nightmare about science gone wrong. In the fourth season the heroes struggle to coexist with the world's first sentient artificial intelligence. The fifth season is a historical horror western pilgrimage through the frozen heart of greed and evil. The current sixth season introduces agents infiltrating a decadent and deranged end of the world party.
