Darker Days Radio Episode #59

Skeletons in the Closet


Season 6 begins where the epic Season 5 cliffhanger left off. Mike hangs from a chasm cliff with only his finger tips. Chris faces off against the 8th deathlord, Nagash. And Chigg stands in the underworld halls alone, his plasma pack blinking on empty.

On this episode, the hosts reunite from their dangerous situations to discuss cool new World of Darkness books announced at GenCon. After that, Mike presents his skeleton from the closet, The Tremere Chronicle for
Vampire: the Masquerade. The trio then delves into a secret frequency covering lost Russian cosmonauts. Finally, Chris presents his own skeleton, Momento Mori for Geist: the Sin-Eaters.
