Fiasco: Die Hard Comes Earlier Every Year

Vegan Turducken on a bed of lettuce

As we near the close of 2016, a year of many bad things, it is important to remember all we still have to be grateful for, that’s worth fighting for. The people behind the Redacted Files are thankful to you, our listeners, and all those people who make it possible to do what we love. Thank you from the bottom of our squamous hearts, and please accept this token of our appreciation.

Two international terrorists bring their families to a remote cabin to celebrate Thanksgiving. Things get…explosive quickly.

TRF’s Twelve Days of Christmas: Day 6, Fiasco

On the Sixth Day of Christmas
My GM gave to me,
Six Fiascos foiled,
Five TPKS!
Four ships still flying,
Three Green Boxes,
Two Draculas,
and a Final Girl fleeing to safety.

Ah Fiasco, what can we say about you? It’s the game that introduced us to a lot of TRF’s first additions to the cast, in games that are sadly lost to history. Perhaps equally important, it emphasized to us the ability for rules-light, GM-less games to create colorful stories that are simultaneously absurd and yet oddly memorable.

We’ve played a couple mythos-related play sets through the history of the podcast, and are always interested in finding more that might generate an episode or two in the future.

Fiasco: The Bookhounds of London

While the TRF editors are away being obnoxious lovebirds, we humbly present this first ever official outing of The Redacted Files crew into the world of Fiasco.

For those unaware, Fiasco is the GM-less game where you play ordinary people with powerful ambition and poor impulse control.

Bookhounds of London is a custom playset created by Trail of Cthulhu author and general Mythos authority Kenneth Hite and acclaimed author Will Hindmarch.

In our rendition, a trio of Londoners get more than they bargained for when they decide to seek revenge for a fallen family member. Also, Aser’s character shoots someone in cold blood…again…
