This is a brilliant, funny and spocky actual play podcast that isn't D&D. They use a system called GURPS even if you have no idea what that is give it a try. The cast are excellent roleplayers the GM (games master) is funny and engaging and pulls the best out of his players. There is a lot of humour as well as some very dark themes. Well worth a listen.

Description

"Destiny has two ways of crushing us - by refusing our wishes and by fulfilling them." - - Henri Frederic Amiel, Swiss Philosopher Thank you for visiting! Salutations! Welcome to Corpses and Curios! We are a Modern Horror campaign set in today’s distracted world. A world where the lifeblood of our daily benign existence betrays the septicemia which may end us all. Utilizing a mix of the 4th and 3rd editions of the wonderfully designed GURPS system by Steve Jackson Games - we strive to provide a story-driven focus as five unique individuals are drawn together by machinations beyond their control, but directly affecting their everyday lives. Welcome to our little shop. Pour yourself a glass of your favorite libation, tune out the rest of the world, and allow us to entertain you. We are a horror campaign, and sometimes we find ourselves dealing with sensitive subject matter. We always try to present such material as vital to plot, and never for the simple purpose of attempting to be “edgy.” Some characters have experienced past trauma which comes into play. We do our best to offer "trigger warnings" to those who may be sensitive to certain presentations and representations of events. Our primary focus is on story and character development. A lot of the mechanics and rules lookups are handled "off camera." So, for the purists, I offer my sincere apologies in advance.

TRIGGER WARNING: Alcohol Use; Violence; Sexual Themes; Death

ADDITIONAL TRIGGER WARNING: Misgendering and Dead Name Usage

Dear Listener,

   After releasing this episode, it was brought to our attention that it is problematic for many reasons and several mistakes contributed to a perfect storm of inappropriate content.

   First, we realize it was unclear, due to the editing, that Brock’s transition was meant to be a temporary offer provided by “The Duchess” in the Ninth Circle Club to help him evade unseen forces tracking him and hunting him. In turn, assisting the groups’ efforts to leave the city and head to Brazil. 

   Second, as a result of this, it created the very problematic issue of needing to follow the ruse created, which resulted in Brock selecting the female name “Brenda.” At times, we failed to use associated pronouns with her new identity. It also became very clear we all did a terrible job separating when we were “in public” to use Brenda (she/her) and in “private” to use Brock (he/him). 

   Third, the player for Brock, Thor, is male, presents masculine, and uses he/him pronouns. Further, our recording times were approximately 4-5 weeks apart during this time period due to life in general being the way it is at time. Unfortunately, this amalgamation of circumstance and our own poor performances resulted in forgetting his in-character appearance until someone at the virtual table corrected them. These corrections and subsequent apologies were sometimes cut from the recording, and lines were often missed for re-recording. 

   Without sugar-coating it, this led to content that can be seen in many ways as transphobic.

   Dear listener, this is absolutely not what we intended. Many of our main cast are part of the LGBTQIA* community. Many of the guests we have for our side adventures are of the LGBTQIA* community. And if they are not, they are most certainly allies of that community. 

   There can be no apology or words that can truly make this egregious offense better. But please know that we are truly sorry this has occurred. From the bottoms of our hearts, we are sorry. We have heard the feedback of our community, we have taken into account their experiences and their response to the episode and we have all made a commitment to making sure our content is better than this because we know we are better than this. We will make sure this does not happen again.

   Thank you for the hours of listening so far. We hope you will continue to listen despite this mistake.

   As a show of good will, we will be making a donation to The Trevor Project. It is the leading national organization providing crisis intervention and suicide prevention services to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer & questioning (LGBTQ) young people under 25.

Family Secrets (Sn. 1 Ep. 30)
53:50

Artemis finally reads the dossier left on her doorstep. Lucas wanes off his hallucinatory medication only to battle with his major depression. Nina discovers a family's dark secret.

TRIGGER WARNING: Misgendering and Dead Name Usage

Dear Listener,

   After releasing this episode, it was brought to our attention that it is problematic for many reasons and several mistakes contributed to a perfect storm of inappropriate content.

   First, we realize it was unclear, due to the editing, that Brock’s transition was meant to be a temporary offer provided by “The Duchess” in the Ninth Circle Club to help him evade unseen forces tracking him and hunting him. In turn, assisting the groups’ efforts to leave the city and head to Brazil. 

   Second, as a result of this, it created the very problematic issue of needing to follow the ruse created, which resulted in Brock selecting the female name “Brenda.” At times, we failed to use associated pronouns with her new identity. It also became very clear we all did a terrible job separating when we were “in public” to use Brenda (she/her) and in “private” to use Brock (he/him). 

   Third, the player for Brock, Thor, is male, presents masculine, and uses he/him pronouns. Further, our recording times were approximately 4-5 weeks apart during this time period due to life in general being the way it is at time. Unfortunately, this amalgamation of circumstance and our own poor performances resulted in forgetting his in-character appearance until someone at the virtual table corrected them. These corrections and subsequent apologies were sometimes cut from the recording, and lines were often missed for re-recording. 

   Without sugar-coating it, this led to content that can be seen in many ways as transphobic.

   Dear listener, this is absolutely not what we intended. Many of our main cast are part of the LGBTQIA* community. Many of the guests we have for our side adventures are of the LGBTQIA* community. And if they are not, they are most certainly allies of that community. 

   There can be no apology or words that can truly make this egregious offense better. But please know that we are truly sorry this has occurred. From the bottoms of our hearts, we are sorry. We have heard the feedback of our community, we have taken into account their experiences and their response to the episode and we have all made a commitment to making sure our content is better than this because we know we are better than this. We will make sure this does not happen again.

   Thank you for the hours of listening so far. We hope you will continue to listen despite this mistake.

   As a show of good will, we will be making a donation to The Trevor Project. It is the leading national organization providing crisis intervention and suicide prevention services to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer & questioning (LGBTQ) young people under 25.

Our second of two "Double Episodes."

 

In this one, the search for the mysterious card case and the Tarot cards within raise more questions than answer for our five heroes, as lives hang in the balance. 

 

We will strive to keep the average episode length between an hour to an hour-and-a-half, depending on a good "stopping point" in-game or while editing.

Official Launch!

"Destiny has two ways of crushing us - by refusing our wishes and by fulfilling them." -
- Henri Frederic Amiel, Swiss Philosopher

 

This is a weird moment.

I've just hit the "publish" button to launch at a minute after midnight on July 4th. A bottle or Rogue chocolate stout by my side, and my son quietly playing Fortnite in the background.

This winter and spring were a labor of love, and I couldn't have done it without a cast that bought in and believed.

We've worked hard to try and make an interesting product and are now two days away from launching . 

I've learned a lot and have these people and podcast groups to thank:

Once again, 

 

Thank you.
