01.03: MECHANICAL ORYX - Into the Dark

As tensions between the Dome and nearby villages escalate, a strange mechanical beast has appeared and begun destroying food stores. Tragos has lost trust among some humans, Overrun has caused an outbreak of fruit, Tancho has acquired help with its marsh, and Trial is ready to pass judgment on the one responsible for the crisis.

In our pilot campaign, BrendanLucyMelissa, and Zoë join Gregory for a short game of MECHANICAL ORYX by Grant Howitt.

We also discuss the core agenda principles of Tabletop Garden. In this episode, we talk about crafting story with social responsibility, which leads to a discussion of colonialism in Mechanical Oryx.

This is the last of three episodes in this campaign.

Our theme song for this campaign is “Amphibian Circuits” from the eponymous album by Dirtwire, available under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 3.0 license. You can buy the album on Bandcamp.
