In the far future of the forty-first millenium, there is only war. But the Imperium of Man is not united. In a prosperous but isolated sub-sector, sector governor Duke Severus XIII secedes, claiming that the High Lords of Terra have bled the sector dry, only to leave its citizens to the tender mercies of an approaching Waaaagh!.
And there are men and women willing to kill and die for the newly minted Severan Dominate and its principles of Interdependence, Justice, and Honesty. The -Aetherian Rex- 1st Auxilliary Corps approaches the mineral-rich battlefield of Hervara, a planet that – if lost – could spell the end of the Dominate’s dreams.
They have the length of a single warp voyage to familiarize themselves with their new equipment, and for the Voidborn that form the core of the squad to meet their support specialists and allies from far-flung Severan worlds. Grav-chutes and repurposed mining lasers will take some getting used to, of course. But is it even possible to accustom oneself to the mysteries of the witch, or the strange ways of the abhuman Ogryn?

The Drunk and the Ugly is a role playing game (RPG) podcast with a focus on narrative gaming systems. These systems utilize a wide variety of rules and settings to create fantastic stories for both players and listeners. The cast relies on improvisation, weaving compelling narratives from disparate characters and viewpoints. From science fiction to fantasy, mystery to slice-of-life, the podcast covers all genres. While similar to a radio drama on the surface, the rules and randomization mechanics of the RPG systems affect the flow and decisions of the stories. There are no scripts and no filters. We invite you to join us twice weekly as we celebrate narrative, gaming, and storytelling. Also dogs.
