BUGC 1 – Pepper’s Ghost, Part One

Four vignettes over the course of one night, to set the stage for what is to come. An unusual audience. A professional rivalry. A restless night. An unexpected guest.

The curtain rises.

BUGC is set in the beautiful and original fantasy world of Adrian Tchaikovski’s Shadows of the Apt, used by kind permission of the author. His books can be found in all good bookshops, so why not try ordering the first book from your local independent seller, such as News from Nowhere in Liverpool, UK?

Bonus: Come Out And Bees: The Rise Of Queen Bea

It is the distant future – the year 3000. In a dusty filing cabinet an ancient tome is found. A ruleset to a forgotten game. Exiled from their own time, five players sit down to unlock the eldritch beauty of…

NOT THE BEES!

Not the Bees! is an indie game where the world is built by the players. There are bees. They are the enemy. Every character is played by Nicholas Cage. Also, we had already recorded one session when we made this, and several of us were sleep deprived or tipsy.
