Brace the Badlands

The year is 2045. Welcome to Night City, chombatta. Played using the Cyberpunk Red system by R. Talsorian Games.

The Archives

Tales from Trantor officially published in 2021 with the Brace the Badlands series, but the players of the podcast were playing games long before. Provided below is what we call “The Archives”, which is a collection of history from some of the other roleplaying games we played over the years.

Star Snakes

Set in the Traveller universe, this adventure leads a space-faring crew on some interesting travels in the far-future amongst the stars.

This series started in-person in 2017, and continued intermittently over a number of years before being paused in 2020.

We didn’t record these episodes at the time (we were playing in-person at another person’s house), but the full episode summaries are available for reading.
