Hostile Waters 3 – Titanic

We’re back! Sorry it’s taken a while – being scattered across three different time zones made it hard to organise a session, not to mention running the Kickstarter for Legacy: The Next World. If you missed that, we’ll be launching a BackerKit pledge manager running until late November, so there’s plenty of time to get on board.

In this episode, we continue the exploration of the derelict, city-sized ship. Eva finds the truth behind her hoard’s messages, Feligus discovers a new way of making music, and Cpt. Wilkes gets his hands dirty. And deep underwater, Lima Sierra comes back online and learns the true dangers of the depths…

Taking part:
Jay (@jayciles) as the GM.
Laurence (@sarkyfrood) playing Feligus Vasp, Elder of the Ascendant Ensemble (Eternal Masquerade).
Dave playing Cpt. Eva Stern, Scavenger of the People’s Fleet (Pioneers of the Depths).
Thea playing Cpt. Wilkes, Agent of the Aerial Board of Control (Gilded Company of Merchants).
Douglas playing Lima Sierra, Machine of the Acanti (Stranded Starfarers).
Thanks for listening!

Hostile Waters 2 – Protoplasma

Welcome back to Hostile Waters! Following our delving into the mysteries of Cliffside, we zoom out to see what the character’s Families are getting up to. Witness research and medicine, trade and diplomacy, and infiltration of an ancient ruin prowled by mechanical guardians.

I hope you enjoyed Red Moon Rising! This is the start of Hostile Waters, a new campaign run in Legacy: Life Among the Ruins 2nd Edition.

The explorers are in a strange and otherworldly place, but they haven’t escaped the castle’s taint. If even the heavens are contaminated by the Regent’s will, what hope do they have?
