An interlude, in which we explore one of the more interesting back alleys in Lanternside.
Flotsam is a tabletop roleplaying game played out as a podcast series, with occasional short stories such as this episode.
In the game, an unlikely trio – smooth-talking hustler Vern (Jay Britton), mischievous old lady Enid (Amelia Tyler), and earnest tinkerer Reg (Chris Payne) - explore a strange city where rats live as if they were humans. Ian Thomas narrates everything that happens and plays all the other characters.
This episode was written by Ian and by Rachel Thomas, and read by Ian.
Flotsam is an original setting dreamed up by Ian, and the roleplaying game system is very simple, based on rolling a ten-sided dice, and on skills that the rats can recall from their forgotten pasts.
