Rude Tales of Magic: A Stranger Comes to Town

We're back to the main campaign, baby! It's been over a month since the destruction of Mt. Fractus, and our heroes find themselves settled into their new lives in the Trashlands. But when a stranger with a glint in his eye comes to town, the gang discovers he's brought deception, death, and discovery along for the ride. Can our crew survive each other and the consequences of their actions long enough to survive the Trashlands? And if not here....where?

Friends at the Table: PARTIZAN 31-33: The Grand Premiere, Glory Arrives, A Single Shot

It has been just over fifty days since Millennium Break took Cruciat, and each day has been more busy than the last. The hammer of the Principality fell on the organization's independent cells across the moon, and now the leaders of Millennium Break seek allies wherever they can find them. No potential partner in the fight against tyranny is more important than the Isle of Logos. As a sovereign nation with key control in Partizan's great sea, the Isle could offer Millennium Break a literal port in troubled waters. And so, Gucci Garantine and Apparatus Aperitif have spent the better part of a month negotiating towards that end.  Protecting these ever-moving negotiations has been trying, as SBBR can attest to. Even the quiet days, where nothing happens, require utmost focus and practiced determination. Yet they cannot hope for such a today to be such a day: One where the only red they see is that of the carpet rolled out for VIPs, where the only flash in their eyes comes from the cameras capturing the event.  To the north, the air of Obelle cracks with the sound of artillery fire. But here in Auspice, Zo'la has finished their film, and it is due its audience. This week on PARTIZAN: The Grand Premiere [more inside]

Friends at the Table: PARTIZAN 29 and 30: Buried Beneath Golden Leaves & A Cemetary for Heroes

A month ago, Millennium Break seized control of Cruciat, ushering in a new age on the holy moon of Partizan. But like a counterpunch already chambered, the great Stels of the Divine Principality hit back with force and speed, driving minor Millennium Break bases into the dirt. Today, along with Cruciat, the only two strongholds left to the revolutionary group are the Lambic House and a trio of cities along the eastern edge of the Prophet's Path. Millennium Break must hold this ground, at all costs. And that is why, though they were one of the founders of the group, and its first executive elected, Valence's request for support in finding the parts of the Exemplar was denied. Even now, with actionable intel from their contact in Columnar, SBBR was being told that they'd need to go it alone.  And with the memory of Gur Sevraq fresh in their minds, they saw no other option...

Friends at the Table: PARTIZAN 21-28: Millennium Break

For those who live under tyranny, the exhaustion and fear is such that it can be hard to even imagine or recognize what escape or progress or revolution look like. But when Icebreaker Prime came over the horizon, the citizens of Cruciat, beaten down by generations of chic, high-minded Kesh terror, knew exactly what they were looking at. [more inside]

Sawbones: A Marital Tour of Misguided Medicine: Systemic Racism in Medical Honors

AOA is a medical honors society that's supposed to separate top-tier medical students from the rest of the pack. It helps determine which doctors get the top jobs in the most competitive fields. The problem? There's implicit racism in the way it chooses members, and fixing it may be a massive challenge.
