A group of FBI agents is sent to investigate a strange crime – the apparent hijacking of a cargo plane in mid-flight. The flight resulted in a mid-air collision with another plane. The flight recorder showed that someone other than the pilots was in the plane. The plane crashed in the wilderness of North Dakota, during winter. Something far darker than agents can imagine is behind the crash. The answers lie in the desolate plains. (Part two will be posted next – this was a bit too long to post as a single AP).

The difference between a slasher flick and an action flick seems to be more about who you root for than anything else. Both genres thrive on unstoppable killing machines that murder their prey with near-impunity. In horror films, you root for the final girl to kill the slasher and live. In action films, you hope the hero murders all of the bad guys. But what if you were the bad guys? In the grimdark future of the 1980s, an artificial island called Synthtopia has been built by SomaTek, a giant mega-corporation. SomaTek plans to end the drug war by releasing a new synthetic drug called Soma that offers a safe and legal high 100 times better than any other drug. Naturally, the drug cartels have hired a gang of criminals to take Synthtopia down. But when the gang of 16 villains lands on the island, they will soon learn what it means to cross JACK SHADE, a mullet wearing hero who is more badass than any other man alive. Prepare for thrills, kills, and exciting plot twists in SYNTHTOPIA!

Tom steps up to the plate to run yet another game of Call of Cthulhu. He’s calling it Desert Heist, but I write the show notes so it’s going up as Payday. Anyway, the player characters are criminals hired to steal a particular item from a FBI evidence storage warehouse. It’s a very straightforward job with no unseen complications. No, it’s the other thing, where there are tons of complications and twists. Enjoy!
