Aaron has an unexpected encounter at an El Paso truck stop, kicking off a harrowing journey along the benighted interstate, where he is both hunter and hunted.

Our primary recorder pooped out midway through the session. Fortunately, we caught the problem pretty quickly and only lost about 10 minutes of action (which we then summarize). However, you'll probably notice a drop in overall audio quality once we switch to our backup. Apologies.

In this second episode, "Getting Into the Ring," our duo meets another duo (in the form of the mysterious Eliot brothers) and begins peeling back the layers of the onion. How long before they start crying?

And a big congratulations to Darker Hues Studios for landing Harlem Unbound in the collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Smithsonian Institution Anacostia Community Museum and The Newark Museum. These acquisitions are an acknowledgement of book's "artistic, scholarly and educational value"! Wowza! More details may be found here.

[Esoteric Short Order] Harlem Unbound: “The Contender—A Love Story” (Part I)

March 6, 2018

harlem_unbound_cover2.png

This month, a travel/illness-reduced crew is taking Darker Hue Studios' Harlem Unbound for a spin with the scenario "The Contender—A Love Story" by Bob Geis. The book is dual-statted for both Trail of Cthulhu and Call of Cthulhu; we opted for the latter system. The scenario is a slow-burn noir procedural that builds ever more to a truly unsettling climax, and we think you're going to really enjoy the ride.

In this first episode, "Sparring with the Champ," we meet our investigative duo and follow them to the Cotton Club, where they take a job from former heavyweight champion Jack Johnson to look into a mysterious death in the boxing ring.
