Fellowship: To Winter's End - A Six Feats Under Campaign

Six Feats Under is an actual play podcast, and we’ve just begun another long-running campaign!

A lonesome dragon, figuring out who they are and why they even exist. A playful guardian, exploring a world they do not understand. A mysterious wizard, who cares more than they want anyone else to know. An outcast engineer, trying to find something, anything to believe in anymore.

They have formed a fellowship to end an endless winter. The world does not know them, the world does not love them. But they will save it anyway.

Fellowship is an RPG written by Jacob Randolph, also known as Gnome. The game follows a band of heroes from different origins uniting against an evil Overlord trying to conquer the world. Unlike most such games, each hero gets to carve out their own portion of the world, declaring truths about their people and their place in the world. The heroes work together to create the world they intend to save, getting them invested in everything, just before the Overlord strikes it all down.

We’re Six Feats Under, an actual play podcast group specializing in tabletop games other than That One. We play a lot of one shots of various systems, known as our Bonus Feats, and we also play some longer running campaigns. Our first campaign, Let’s Play The 13th Age, took 5 years and 89 episodes. Hopefully, Mouse Guard and Fellowship: To Winter’s End will take a little less time than that.

This thread is for our Fellowship campaign, our third big campaign featuring a regular cast of heroes going on a long, continuous adventure. It is running concurrently to our Mouse Guard campaign, which follows two squads of mice as they protect the Territories from danger. You can find the thread for our Mouse Guard campaign over here.


CAST

Friar Pan is played by Clove.

The Dragon. Friar Pan is a half-dragon, raised by dwarven nuns in an old monastery. He loves to cook, especially cakes, and Poptart is his best friend in the whole world. He is also the Engine of the Pumpkin Patch. In spite of all that, Pan feels like he’s missing something, like there’s some greater purpose out there hes just missing out on.

Pan seeks Relentless Justice and The Dwarven Craft.

Harbinger is played by Ikks.

The Harbinger. Harbinger is a priest of the Columned City, a pillar of the High Doric Order. They are shrouded in mystery, quick to give commands, and slow to explain themselves. Harbinger is in charge of the Pumpkin Patch’s Communications. They talk big, but their motives seem benevolent. Probably.

Harbinger will Fulfill The Prophecies.

Poptart is played by Joey.

The Halfling. Poptart is a guardian spirit, equal parts River and Frog, and Pilot of the Pumpkin Patch. They love to wrestle, ride on top of, and eat with anyone who will have them. Playful and mischievous, Poptart is mostly here because they don’t like the cold. They have no idea what’s coming.

Poptart wants to Have Fun, and they have an Alien Mindset.

Yuria Bloodtongue is played by Riley.

The Squire. Yuria Bloodtongue is a red panda, once torn apart by Aurorealis, but put back together by O.R.C. robots. She is Captain of the Pumpkin Patch, and can call on her old O.R.C. allies for help if she needs them. In spite of all this, she feels inadequate, and is here to find some kind of belonging or purpose.

Yuria knows that They Need Me.

This is what dogs are. Normal Dog is the Pumpkin Patch’s Gunner, and Harbinger’s Companion.

The Quadcore Pumpkin Patch is our heroes’ ship.

The QCPP is a flying shopping mall, a series of storefront pods rigged together with steam pipes steel catwalks. Whimsical and complicated, it drifts through the air via a complicated system of levers, steam, and balloons.

Aurorealis is played by Gnome.

The Overlord. Aurorealis, Who Fire Forgot, is a mysterious being whose motives are entirely unknown. All we know is that they want the world cold, and they have the power to do it. She is tall, bald, and pale as the fallen snow.

I feel it’s appropriate to answer some vital questions regarding this campaign, starting with the most important one: Who vapes.

And we have a solid answer: Yuria.

(Many thanks to https://twitter.com/KSShaezer for this lovely drawing)

And for a bonus: She’s doing HRT through vaping. That should give a good clue what kind of scrap engineer she is.

I’m rooting for Aurorealis. Boris must be avenged.

This is an extremely cute group of adventurers. I’m interested how this plays out as a full campaign after the one shot the show did, like, a year ago.

So we talked about The Spider a bit in the episode, and I said specifically that it was not going to be out by the time the episode went up. And I was right, but only by a single day.

The Spider is now available for purchase. So if you think this game is cool and want more things for it, here you go - the newest expansion!

Poptart’s running with a Spider move, Agenda, and some Gear that were added in this expansion, so if you want to be like Poptart, you’ll want to pick this one up.

Hi I posted this on twitter but more of the world needs to know that just the character creation of this good podcast inspired me to commit “Art”.

Episode 1: A Tower Stands

The fellowship begins its first daring heist: to topple a weather control tower on top of the Blue Mountain, deep in Aurorealis’ territory. Guarded by a city of pandas, a snow golem, and a pair of powerful, definitely named antagonists, our heroes have their work cut out for them.


Friar Pan is played by Clove. Harbinger is played by Ikks. Poptart is played by Joey. Yuria is played by Riley. Aurorealis is played by Gnome.

This episode was edited by Gnome. Episode art is by Clove. All music in this episode was performed by Thylacinus.

The introduction was an excerpt from Kingdom, by VNV Nation, and voiced by Grant.

I gotta say, I do enjoy how completely dysfunctional everyone in the group is. Nobody quite gets how everyone else operates and those that do don’t particularly care and it’s causing more problems than it solves and it’s great.

I’m looking forward to the next episode is what I’m saying here.

I saw the episode get downloaded on my podcatcher - This looks like an interesting EPIC series especially compared with the more down to earth mouse guard series. (You need both.) I am hoping to fall in love with the characters once I listen to them.

Edit: I am halfway through the character creation - I REALLY love Poptart and Pan.

I have listened to all of this now - Is this chaotic almost sketch like nature a part of the system in general or is it done in the editing and Starting it in-media-res also a part of that?

and I still really love Poptart and Pan.

That is how the system works in general. You hop from player to player, never letting the camera sit on anybody for too long (which I think I didn’t do perfectly this session - a bit too much camera on Pan and not enough on Yuria, but it gets better in future sessions).

Editing amplifies this a little bit, though, since I like to keep the podcast flowing quickly. But that is very much a part of how Fellowship’s system is set up to work.

Episode 2: That Buster Keaton Stunt

The weather control tower has fallen, our heroes have completed their mission. But their enemies, Knight and Ggislin Ketos, are still here, and still ready to rumble. Can Pan, Poptart, Yuria, and Harbinger manage to escape, when they can’t even manage to agree with each other on anything?


Friar Pan is played by Clove. Harbinger is played by Ikks. Poptart is played by Joey. Yuria is played by Riley. Aurorealis is played by Gnome.

This episode really helped with Yuria doing stuff. I really want to know what O. R. C.s look like.

At some point I need to draw Vire at least, we do have a bit of foundation for them since I originally was going to play Orc when we started planning.
