Rapscallions: The Godawful Pilot Episode
The sound quality in this episode reflects a lot of inexperience at the time of its production; as you might expect, given that we were new podcasters at the time. This episode was remastered and edited for content and flow in 2020. To my ear, the redux turned out far better than the original. This draft is maintained for posterity and completionists only. The canon begins with the restored Episode One: A Fine Fellowship of Felons.
In this Episode:
Zivah returns home from her education abroad to find someone living in her apartment. Arabet begins preliminary reconnaissance on a potential heist and immediately has to deal with complications. Narri deals with two cheesed-off ladies with his usual aplomb, and ends up homeless for a short spell. We meet Khaludur, a half-elven “purveyor of finest curiosities and small wonders” who is rumoured to be as well-connected as he is wealthy. While they initially seek him for financial assistance, they find that they’ll need to prove their own bona fides first.
