I'm really glad that Red Markets Black Death is back after a year or so hiatus...

It's really good to listen to as an actual play. I didn't hear the abberrant in the last episode...

The actual play with the city with the surgeon was terrifying I recall. And now thanks to all of them listed on the campaign page they're easy to listen to.

The playtesting of the rules is good. I do like the Swiss mercenary though.

Ian’s RMBD Jobline is really fun to listen to. Lost Templar Treasure and mysteries. I did like how Lauras new characte met her previous blacksmith one for equipment. I want to post a link as well because it's just that good for fans of Red Markets:

@Ethan,

Did you end up reading Karen Maitland's Company of Liars ?

The ending is both a twist and also terrifying right at the ending sentence.

Finished it and it does make for good reading for a Red Markets/BM campaign setting.

I haven't read Company of Liars yet, I should!

I'm glad you're enjoying the new APs! I love the jobs that Ian is writing. We're just about ready to run the final job in this campaign, and I'm hyped!

Looking forward to the rest of the RMBD campaign.  :) And the continuing adventures of Hanspeter Stauffen.

Also for the Cross of St. Agnes the City of Drucy is the scariest part of your RMBM playtests so far. Seriously, it becomes terrifying. That shouldn't be a spoiler...

Really enjoying the Red Markets Black Death Episode Tomb of the Knight Episode 3.

Due to the effort that clearly been made with the setting material every episode sounds quite realistic. A dose of history with Red Markets and olde economics involved.

Will listen through to Episode 4 and hope to find out the secret of the Black Knights who keep appearing. And being killed...without talking it out. Poor Magda.

The sewer moment with the boat guide was very well done. Not a spoiler I hope. Anyway thanks Technical Difficulties crew and Ethan. Ian did a good job writing it.

Does having a horse make it much easier for a BM Taker to operate or does the cost balance it out? I guess the war horse armor or extras affect the individual usefulness. I'll need to re-listen.

Look forward to hearing the new Abberant..no idea what new plague horror Ian created. Oh and Georg the Winsome page is very funny. He should become a playable character eventually when Hanspeter Stauffen reaches his retirement goal with Adam.

Thanks! I'm loving all of Ian's jobs. We're working on the final one now...

I think I need to increase the cost of horses to reflect their amazing value.
