Augur of Despair: Part 1

A Blackstone Fortress audio drama

A pair of explorers discover a dangerous – and invaluable – artefact deep in the Blackstone Fortress. Can they get it to safety?

Find out how some of the newer explorers in the Blackstone Fortress go about their adventures – and what they seek in the darkness.

The Arch-Militant Neyam Shai Murad and the noble crusader Gotfret de Montbard have retrieved a great prize from the Blackstone Fortress – a cube they found with the help of an unscrupulous data-trader. This mysterious artefact may answer all their questions about the alien labyrinth… if they can return it to Precipice. Many dangers stand in their way, including a rampaging ambull, Negavolt cultists and the ever-shifting maze of the fortress itself. And even if they do return, they shall need aid to decipher the device, from a most untrustworthy ally…

Written by Chris Dows. Running time 15 minutes, 32 seconds. Performed by Tom Alexander, Lanna Joffrey & Luis Soto.
