The Road to Escalante
Utah, 1859. A call sounded in the ether, reaching the ears of several unfortunate souls looking for a new start. They gathered in Green River and set off with a guide for their new lives in Escalante, but secrets and danger lie in the ever-shifting desert sands.
Last year, we took part in Penance RPG's Halloween one-shot special where they ran the same one-shot campaign with several different groups to see how everyone played. When thinking of ways to celebrate the Lovelycraftians' one year anniversary, this immediately came to mind. In honor of one year of chaos, we put together a Wild West one-shot campaign that our GM is running with some of our podcast bffs that we'll air in April-May. The Lovelies will play it as the finale, and their choices will affect their universe(s). We've got members from a bunch of podcasts joining in:
- Ballad of the Seven Dice
- Chicks with Crits
- D20 Dames
- The Dice Girls
- Modified Roll
- Penance RPG
- Prism Pals
- RISK Management
Everyone playing gets to make their character using a whole slew of archetypes designed to get them into the game while also giving them the freedom to make the character their own (cowboys, outlaws, Pinkerton agents, even a Pentecostal snake preacher, just to name a few).
We didn't want to just have a milestone giveaway as a way to say thanks to you, sweet followers and listeners (also in the works, more on that to come). We wanted to have a lot of fun in a way that gives back to the community that has welcomed us so warmly and been such an amazing support system to us. And what better way to do that than to play a bespoke game with them and bring them into our world for all to hear?
Saddle up, friends. It's going to be a bumpy ride.
