A point of note: We had a recording error during the Narri & Arabet scene, and had to re-play it for contenuity. During the original play of this scene, Narri rolled a Natural 1, and his player insisted on keeping those consequences for the re-play. This is the "last time we played this scene" reference in the first scene of this episode.

Rapscallions S1E04: Hullu-cidation

 Getting better with every episode, we present this, the latest chapter in the Rapscallions saga. This week, we focus on the ringleaders... 

They're creepy, kooky, flamboyant and spooky. I don't think 'ooky' is an actual word, but they're the Hullu family. We explore Bailymena first through the lens of Narri & Zivah's origins in the seedier quarters of the city, then return to the present as the Rapscallions go rat-catching and discover the depth of Bailymena's wererat infestation.

Rapscallions S1E01: A Fine Fellowship of Felons

So owing to a glitch in my recording software, we lost the original Episode Zero of Season One, which means that unfortunately, the recap which follows is all that remains of it. I'll keep it snappy, and apologise off the start for the sound quality! 

 When Journeyman Barrister Narri Hullu is transferred to the Extralegal Affairs Department at Starkweather & Fair LLP., he is given direction to assemble a 'personal office and staff of professional experts suitable to such tasks and conditions as may be assigned, as may be required, within individual means.' 

Shortly thereafter, we meet the motley lot who we will shortly refer to as the Rapscallions. 

By arrangement, Narri meets with the duo of Arabet & Mr. Stitch. Raised by the streets of Old Bailymena, Arabet is a hard-as-nails master criminal whose stoicism is exceeded only by his reputation for excellence.  Far from home in Bailymena, Mr. Stitch is a somewhat-legended tabaxi medico whose services as a back-alley sawbones come at a steep price... unless you happen to be poor.

The newly-formed firm then travels to the nearby countryside of the Iron Hills, to investigate rumours regarding the presence of the formerly-famous gladiatrix known as Magma. When they do indeed find her labouring there in subhuman conditions, Narri's offer of lucrative employment is enough to get Magma's attention; given her hellish surroundings and inability to leave with a debt owing, she is just happy to get out of the mine and into the city again. 

We begin this episode with Zivah returning from her education abroad with big plans to open a seance and funeral parlour, only to find an ex-professional wrestler -who appears to be perpetually on fire- living in her apartment. 

 

These and more happy hijinks on the premiere episode of our first season of Rapscallions!
