It is the year 444 of Sheng the Immortal’s rule. As Sheng has always existed, he had the foresight to find brave warriors and cunning tacticians and send their minds through time so they may be useful long after their natural deaths. Now, as a ruler, Sheng uses Pilgrims for missions of great importance. Most arrivals of the Pilgrims are foretold, but not all of them. Guides wait to greet the Pilgrims, should they arrive unexpectedly. The latest group of Pilgrims is unlike the others though…

Yithian vampires from the futuuu–damn it Caleb you stole my comment in the last thirty seconds
Comment death trap!
Holy hell. This is incredibly cool. Only halfway through the episode and I’m hooked. The blending of mythology is amazing.
Wow, things have gotten really interesting now…
So, how many years AF was that?
This session takes place in 5013 AD.
The true horror- this takes place in the year… BF 5! Harujappa saves us from the Vampires only for the TITANS to rise in their place! The death trap was plural!
Great AP, love the twist this game takes.
*not finished listening
Oh my good this is becoming a game of continuum.
Will the next sessions be them sliding forward and backwards through time replaying the same mission trying to not fuck up?
Great Thanksgiving post.
Whoooooaaaa! Far OUT! That… that escalated quickly, and I am so absolutely, incredibly intrigued, now (not that I wasn’t before, but whoa!)
I like all the illustrations for this campaign, but this one particularly caught my eye. so goooood
@crawkill They were all really fun to Illustrate. I believe Ross’s suggestion for this was “Make it look like a Rifts cover piece but with the Fantasy music video in mind”? It was something like that. I like to use silhouettes in darker pieces. Makes it more foreboding.
This is a really awesome session that continues an awesome campaign, but man going back to the present and spying just feels a bit jarring afterwards. What’s a person supposed to want, given the information they now have?
Should they prevent a Sheng-ruled future? Do you care that it happens, when it’s only going to happen in three thousand years? Shit, maybe he’s the only one who CAN stop a nightmare from beyond space and time from destroying the world.
What I’m saying is that vampire Haru is what’s kept in the long vault.
Ross Payton, worlds greatest master of Mythopoeia.
Or, alternatively; Ross Payton, everything is always Cthulhus in Carcosa.
Vampire Time Travel Craziness. I’m glad Jason stopped tapping on the table, Jebus… It was just starting to get to me. 🙂 Can’t wait to see what’s in the Vault.
What’s in the Vaulllllltttt…
I think the “how many years AF” comment is getting at this same idea, but … is this the same Tokyo we saw in Know Evil? There are some similarities that don’t seem coincidental and I recall other mentions of RPPR continuity..
Great session in general. The House of Emerald was my favorite bit – I liked how the characters were physically very strong so the threats to their personality/sanity seemed far more frightening by contrast.
