Qmenera EP25 The battle's done
Hello & welcome to Qmenera! This is the homebrew, fledgling, adventure of an experienced, all-queer, gaming cast. We will be playing Numenera by Monte Cook Games. Back on the road go Hillian, Charlie, and Railu go! The road to Druissi is dangerous but hopefully they can manage. Traveling while Hillian is cycling through his Howlian phase might not be the best option, but the choices weren't great if they tried to stay in Ephremon. Is Railu up to the challenge of handling Hillian without Tiyune? Is Charlie able to help?  Intro and outro music by: David Hilowitz https://bit.ly/2UvWaQ1 "Malicious", by Kevin MacLeod (https://incompetech.com)Licence: CC BY (http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/)
