Last week, we returned to The Arena and our erstwhile pilots. Deep inside the newly discovered vault, the team uncovers a journal entitled, “The End Of Everything: A Life Lived”. It details a great pandemic that swept across America, killing nearly everyone. It speaks of a mysterious “she” who tried to defeat death by creating life unending. Further along, they find the remnants of a chapel dedicated to an unknown creature appearing in a swarm form – and then the zombies wake up. Fleeing from the shambling masses, Rosie is bit. The team rush out to the tram station and power up the car, escaping the vault and it’s undead horrors.
Back outside in the wasteland that is The Arena, the are met by a flying scavenger named Tony. He agrees to take them safely to the city on stilts in exchange for George The Slushie Machine. It seems that George is quite valuable to “the ones on high” who seek out such items because they “want to remember”. That night, Rosie locks herself in her cabin and begins committing as much of her knowledge about the metaverse to the journal in case she becomes a zombie, otherwise known as one of “The Lost”. Her work is interrupted by the arrival of air pirates who attack Tony’s ship. The team meets on the deck to combat the salvo as best they can, which is when Jenika goes into swarm form. Rosie feels a pain in her arm and looks down in time to see a string of nano-wasps streak out of her wound and head off toward Jenika. Crash uncovers a pair of rocket boots and uses them to take down the lead ship, causing the rest of the pirates to flee. Jenika re-materializes on the deck as the pursuing swarm of zombie nanos falls to the ground, scattering helplessly along its surface. Tony, the airship pilot, suddenly shudders before breaking into a smile…as Thomas takes control of him.
We have some amazing artwork inspired by this week’s episode from Voidsmoker, and some original fan fiction from Paxamo! If you feel inspired by the MASTERS OF THE METAVERSE (or any ZOE IP) to create any fan art, please share it with us on Twitter, Facebook, or Discord. We love receiving and sharing them!
MASTERS OF THE METAVERSE is an RPG set in a world completely designed and created by Zombie Orpheus Entertainment. In it, players control two characters: a pilot and an avatar. Each one gives the players different skills and abilities – but the catch is they can only access one at a time. The setting is unique and changes with each story arc. So far, we’ve visited a city of superheroes, an old west setting with zombies, magical space princesses, an alien invasion, and even spent some time in the world of Fartherall.
