Monkeys Took My Jetpack #2: The Mystery of the Robot Box

What’s that you say? You just can’t get enough of the pulpy Wushu goodness that is Pulp Fu? Well, glad to hear it! This week, we present a Wushu game which occurred near the end of October, when Pat was unexpectedly absent. It worked out rather nicely, though, since it gave Chris (and me, come to think of it) a chance to create a Wushu character.

Grab some popcorn, because it just doesn’t get much more cinematic than…

The Mystery of the Robot Box!

Our Cast:
BlindGeek: Gamemaster
Chris: Natasha Houdini
Josh: The Magpie
Nikki: Kai the Jungle Savage

Be warned: Due to an uncertainty of what we were going to play (if anything) once we knew Pat wasn’t able to make it, there’s a pretty fair amount of pre-game banter (although that does include Chris and I creating our characters), so if you want to get to the game instantly, game-play commences at 57:29. You’ll be missing lots of fun schtuff, though, if you skip ahead like that. In any event, no matter how you choose to listen to it, we hope you enjoy the issue.

Nope, no hints of what’s to come here. You’ll just have to click the link above and find out. Enjoy.
