technocapitalists trying to solve the social and environmental catastrophes caused by technocapitalism through the judicious application of technocapitalism.

Our Night's Black Agents campaign Dracula Unredacted has now lasted for 33 sessions of active playing – and I think were still somewhere in the middle. I wrote about my impressions after playing Zalozhniy Quartet. It was one of the best campaigns I've run. This one is very different, with much less structure.
