Ep. 24 The International Adventurers' Show

Mike sits down to chat with artistic tabletop types from around the world to discuss everything from creamed corn to the Olympics to the notion of launching their own adventure in the Heart of Bronze universe. Very special thanks to Rupert Bathurst from Bristol, England; and Jenn from an undisclosed top secret bunker filled with maple syrup and Molsons somewhere in Canada. Stay tuned as Rupert, Jenn (and others!) launch into their own Steampunk adventure some time soon.

Colonel Humphrey, Wesley, and Dr. Tarbent go to New Yorke in the hopes of finding Agent Samuel Boothe.

Meanwhile, Jameson, Martin, Adrienne and Charlie Stodder make their way into the small air pirate town of Delecroix, Iowa. There they split the party and get into all sorts of trouble.

Meanwhile (at a slightly later time), Adrienne, Jameson, Martin and Stodder attempt to escape the Imperial Gattling mortars launched toward the diner.

Ep. 15 Chapt. 13 "Diner Ghoul"

We begin with the camera slowly rolling over the frost and light snow-covered lot of the abandoned diner in Wayward, straight to the lifeless corpse of Martin Barnett.

Ep. 14 Chapt. 12 "Code 7 Turnaround"

The adventure continues with Major Charles Humphrey as he finds himself in a precarious situation. After discovering Colonel Waltrip was using a trigger phrase to control him, Humphrey turned the tables. Now his faithful automaton Wesley has the good colonel in a tight body lock. Just then, General Marrow comes calling. Meanwhile, Jameson Mayfield, a prisoner at the Wilton Progress Facility, follows a trail of clues that could lead to his escape. With the aid of Thomas and Jack, and a sympathizer named Jillian, Jameson is about to make his move when Adrienne returns, different, her eyes wild with news of the expanding rebellion.

Ep. 13 Chapt. 11 "Loyal Heartbeat"

It's a rather dark turn of events for both Jameson Mayfield and Martin Barnett. Jameson, separated from his witch companion, Adrienne, finds himself a prisoner in an Imperial-controlled work camp. Will Adrienne's final words to him provide a clue, and will her charm protect him from the chilling dangers that lurk within the fences and barbed wire of the Wilton Progress Facility? Meanwhile, Martin Barnett is taken to the abandoned town of Wayward, presumably to assist Imperial agents with investigating the ghoul sightings back home.

Our movie contest ends at EPISODE 20, so be sure to enter. You can enter as often as you like, either through our contact link HERE, or by emailing us.

Ep. 12 Chapt. 10 "Tornado Chamberlain"

Several weeks have passed...

Martin Barnett is now a Master Airman at Tornado Base, learning to fly a "bifighter" against the Confederate aggressors. We meet a new character, "Dodge" Stodder, Martin's best (and only) friend in camp and a former Property from the Confederation. Meanwhile, Major Humphrey (formerly Cecil Griffith) and Nigel Edmund Wesley make themselves at home in Fort Chamberlain, Illinois, where the full details of the stolen punchcard are revealed. 

Robby's "25 in 50" contest is still LIVE! And, seriously, we haven't had a single guess come in, so LCY has stuck her pointy metal nose into RBY's handiwork. The "revised" contest is unveiled mid-show. 

And ... composer Jeff joins us again, rolling on behalf of some NPCs!
