Backstory 004: You’ll Have To Find Someone Else To Torture

Originally published as a Patreon-only backstory episode on 2020-05-25.

The team has been asked to keep their boss Mr. Garrow safe and sound during a high-level negotiation with the UCAS diplomats. They’ve checked out the venue ahead of the meeting, and having discovered some unsettling things about recent history there, are ready to actually have the meeting go down. We join the team as they arrive at the motorpool a bit late to head to the meeting…

Backstory 003: That Sounds Like A Good Way To Get Slapped

Originally published as a Patreon-only episode on 2020-04-13.

Previously, on Burning Edge. It’s still Friday, January 5th, 2080. The team started their recon job at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel and Conference Center. Cat left a bag of what she claims are clothes in the meeting room while she and Cassandra checked out the tactical situation. Chatting with the friendly neighborhood bartender Micah found out about some disturbances there recently, but matrix security and pudding made further research in that area untenable for Jean-Baptiste. They’ve decided to split up to talk to some management at the hotel. Jean-Baptiste and Micah will try to track down Darrin Summers, the head of security, while Cat and Cassandra have a chat with Vincent Santos, the head of housekeeping.

Backstory 002: Finish Your Fraggin’ Tapioca Pudding

Originally published 2020-03-09 as a Patreon-only backstory episode.

It’s Friday, January 5th, 2080. The team had a meeting with EVO’s head of security, Raine Davis. Negotiations between the UCAS and EVO are wrapping up, and Chuck Garrow, Vice President of Acquisitions for the United Canadian and American States is being sent to a five-star hotel to sign the treaty. EVO has some fairly reliable intel that both Ares Macrotechnology and the Shiawase Corporation would like to see the treaty signing ceremony not happen quite as planned. The Burning Edge crew has decided to go check out the meeting room ahead of time to get the lay of the land. After valeting their car “Steve”, they enter the Ritz-Carlton’s lobby.

Backstory 001: Of Course I Will Tap Into The Cameras While I’m In The Buffet Line

As part of winding down the Burning Edge podcast, here’s the first backstory recording.

This episode starts with a corporate security team getting a briefing about an assignment they’ll need to take on. Jean-Baptiste, Catherine, and Micah have been on this team for several years now, acting as the security squad for Chuck Garrow, a Vice President at EVO. At some point in the distant past, the team had an assignment go sideways, and several team members were killed in action. That is a story we may tell at some point in the future, but the specifics are not important at this point. Re-staffing their Special Security Detail has been difficult, mainly because working with Mr. Garrow is exceptionally difficult. They were able to replace one of their fallen teammates with Cassandra Miller, a human weapons specialist.

Burning Edge Interview on Out of Character

We’re still trying to record to get the second season ready to go, but sometimes life gets in the way. During one of our sessions neither Omni or Tempest could make a session. Jupiter jumped at the opportunity to get some content recorded for Out of Character (part of the Without a Net podcast media empire). Deuce, Jean-Baptiste, and Cassandra put aside the characters they play for a bit to talk out of character with Jupiter.

They chat about a bunch of topics: character motivation, playing a RPG for release as a podcast versus just playing with friends, and their favorite moments during season one.

Episode 022: Tufts and Tails

The team managed to successfully plant a data chip on their target to ruin her new career as a politician while saving some food from a protest. Catherine had to be carried from the casino after she inexplicably passed out right before finishing the job. We now rejoin the team in their Americar, getting ready to leave the scene.

Episode 021: The House Always Wins

Slide is looking to ruin a local mayoral candidate that has been making his organization’s life hell as a local crime fighter, and tasked our team to plant incriminating evidence on her to make that happen. The target, Jeanine Magliano, is holding a campaign event on one of St. Louis’s iconic riverboat casinos. The team has infiltrated the riverboat, got a device planted to potentially mess with the electrical system, covertly transferred the datachip from one member of the team to another, and yeah, did a little bit of drinkin’ and gamblin’. We now rejoin Micah, who’s doing astral overwatch over the riverboat.

Our eagle-eared listeners might notice a continuity error. Feel free to bring it up in the Discord, and let Omni know you’re disappointed in him.

Episode 020: Perfectly Natural For Me To Be Completely Nude

It’s still Monday, January 15th 2080. We continue the casino job to plant data on local political candidate Jeanine Magliano. The team has split up into three groups. Deuce and Catherine posed as employees and entered through the employee entrance. Jean-Baptiste and Thumper appear as a happy couple there for the drinkin’, the gamblin’, and the hobnobbin’ with the elite. Micah’s on astral overwatch and is probably a pack of cigarettes into her evening at this point.
