The Spire


You are a dark elf. The touch of the sun burns your grey skin, and you hide from it in the twisting corridors, crumbling temples and the lawless undercity of the Spire - a towering metropolis of hard slate and granite, impossibly tall, with a bleeding hole in reality deep at its centre.

You have seen your mothers and grandmothers subjugated and enslaved by the high elves, or aelfir, that rule the city - and you have had enough.

You have joined the resistance: the ministry of our Hidden Mistress, worshippers of a forbidden goddess.

You have sworn in blood that the aelfir will fall, that you will destroy them through subterfuge, and insurrection, and terror.

The Spire is all the world you've ever known.

And it must fall.

Marchion was played by General Grant Ironicus. Tears-The-Bone was played by Nadia. Admiral Cranver Laurant was played by Chris Taylor. And today's games master was Grant Howitt.

This episode was edited by Riley. Music was performed by Thylacinus.

Returning guest Grant Howitt brings new guest Chris Taylor to play a session of their new game, The Spire.

The Ministry of our Hidden Mistress sends Admiral Cranver Laurant (Chris Taylor), blood-drenched assassin Tears-the-Bone (Nadia), and holistic priestess Marchion (Grant) to investigate a small town where some of their number went missing.

What secrets does Grist hold? Is this team's diversity an asset, or their undoing? How do you define "mission accomplished"?
