The Chimera
Monthly+
 
An actual play podcast in which old friends get together to tell strange stories. Dice are involved. In season one, The Old Bones, we follow an obsessive technophile and her crew of alien misfits--a bodyguard with a checkered past; a feline warrior and reluctant heretic; a disgraced lawyer bound to a mysterious mech; and a financial instrument with a mind of her own--as they explore the universe in search of purpose and profit, aboard an ancient starship with secrets of its own.
