Actual Play Episode 001 – Don’t Call it a Milk Run

Actual Play Logo


You’ve been incredibly patient and the time has now arrived. Introducing The Arcology Actual Play Podcast: Episode 001 (Don’t Call it a Milk Run).

We sincerely hope you like it; we’ve had a blast playing it and have many, many episodes to follow. You may have noticed it bears the “explicit” tag. That’s because players will be players and we aren’t going to hunt down all the exclamations that merit an explicit tag. Instead, we’re just slapping the tag on and advising “listener beware.” Or at least: listeners with sensitive systems, small ears, or easily damaged sensibilities beware.

Enjoy. 🙂
