Draft Mechanic: Spoiler Episode Epsilon

T.I.M.E Stories: Expedition: Endurance, 1914 NT

WARNING! This episode contains MAJOR, MASSIVE, COMPLETE SPOILERS for the T.I.M.E Stories scenario “Expedition: Endurance.” After nearly a year, we dive back in to Spoiler Epsiode territory as our debriefings from the fifth T.I.M.E Stories scenario see the light of day. We have half an hour of discussion from Team Alpha, and then Team Beta returns after the break to join us after their run. Things went much differently for the both of us and there was definitely a lot to pick apart. With scenario six, Lumen Fidei, looming on the horizon, it’s time to jump back into the cassions for another round!

Intro

01:30 Team Alpha discussion

29:33 Team Beta discussion

Draft Mechanic: Spoiler Episode Delta

T.I.M.E Stories: Under the Mask, -1146 NT

WARNING! This episode contains MAJOR, MASSIVE, COMPLETE SPOILERS for the T.I.M.E Stories scenario “Under the Mask.” Jake, Danielle, Dan and Kyle recorded their debriefing directly after finishing the scenario and picked apart every card in the deck. We discuss our characters, the new mechanics, the overall story and what it means for the future of the T.I.M.E agency. For some inexplicable reason, however, this audio file has nearly an hour and a half of content - strange, since our discussion only lasted approximately 53 minutes and 40 seconds. Back into the cassions, agents, it’s time to go Under the Mask!
