Lots of talk about callsigns and lots of herding cats as The Society of Banners and Bright Returns takes on their second mission.

The ashen/hypha make a definite return with a lot of information for our heroes, but only if they can complete a mission quietly. Valence learns cyberstalking. Thisbe hurls a tree at a dude. Broun looks a gift horse directly in the mouth.

Austin, Janine, Ali, Dre

Dre tried to do something near the end of the second episode and I was like "What the hell even are you, bro? I don't know anything about you!" and then seconds later Austin responded to Dre something like "I don't know, CAN you do that? I don't know anything about your species!" and it really feels good when a very curious host has the same questions I do.

At this point I'm only really attached to Thisbe (Janine) from this crew but I bet the next mission they get is going to have some real backstory meat.

I do hope it's not six months until we can mix up the teams a little.

I like Thisbe but sometimes her schtick comes off as a little Unfrozen Caveman Lawyer to me.

Agreed. I appreciate that Janine seems a little annoyed by the limitations and is trying to not make it seem too much like a previous robot character so I think she'll start evolving Thisbe in some interesting directions.

By the way, the unofficial wiki for this season is up and seems to have a few moderately active editors, which is great because I had a zero percent chance of remembering this group's team name without looking it up.

as a member of the RPG community i promise you my groundbreaking RPG podcast will be gay and extremely distressing to listen to. it will be a system no one has ever heard of. it will be pure anti-clout

yoiu are just describing friends of the table

not even close. Friends at the Table is many, many systems that not a damn soul has ever heard of. Some of which I didn't buy after hearing them play it.
