    This is a bittersweet occasion. Season 3 is now complete. And that means...so is this story! For now. We wrapped up Season 3 right before the holidays and just had our first session of Season 4 last week; you're now just one episode behind where we the players are, so right now, for what happens next, your guess is basically as good as mine.

    I've been working on a revamp of the early installments to get them up to the standards of the current ones, fix typos, improve some of the art, etc.

    There are also some "deleted scenes" - by which I mean stuff that literally got deleted, because the early installments of this were transcribed by hand and sometimes mistakes were made. Now I do it all with an exporter program and a bunch of macros and it makes it so much easier and faster. But anyway, while apparently the missing stuff wasn't egregious enough to keep people from making sense of the story, it'll be nice to have it back. There's a whole conversation when the team met the Heavy Doombot in Wundagore Valley, for instance, that was just...gone, originally.

    The season 1 revamp is done and I'm going to start editing it into my old posts soon. I'll say something here when I do.

    Anyway, what I wanted to say is, thank you all so much for joining us on this adventure. Your feedback, thoughts, comments, or even just Awesomes have been energizing. I can't speak for the other players, but I know it's pushed me, personally, to keep raising my game since I started doing this.

    I like what things Miles cares about and what he doesn't

    Celestials? Fuck 'em.

    I like that Ryann didn't volunteer.

    Was there a chance Vlad could fail, or once Miles rescued him, the Galactus threat was effectively solved?

    It certainly seems as if Miles's choice to ice out the Celestials was the best one, if Vlad had it covered.

    Wait, does this all happen in Session one of Season 4, or is Matt hinting at what's to come? Because holy hell that is a lot of shit to go down in one session!

    Also, did Cable just sort of disappear?

    Matt, like myself, feels quite meticulous in their planning of game and use of characters. Cable will totally be back.

    Helluva ride Jake. This game's been building to Galactus since the beginning, as Marvel stories tend to. What does one do when one finally punches out God? Looking forward to finding out.
    As usual, God/Entropy is not the final enemy. All roads lead to DOOM.

    That's all stuff to come. Matt liked my teasers so did one right after the credits music, just as you read it here. Which is a bold move since I dunno how we'll get to half of these, but I'm excited to see.

    And yeah, Cable totally just vanished. I think once he realized we weren't going to wake up Apocalypse and the Heralds weren't in his lane, he peaced out. Or maybe, with his future fixed, he stopped existing.

    Yeah, without knowing it, by saving Vlad, Miles gave the team a backup plan. Vlad couldn't fail (since NPCs don't roll) but if he hadn't been there, stuff could have gone a lot worse.

    The teasers are pretty awesome. I'm impressed by the faith he has in you all. There are certainly players out there who wouldn't handle that well.

    I'm looking forward to meeting another Rider. Fingers crossed they're God's black ops agents like in Aaron's run.

    Oh my god yes, some players would absolutely try to torpedo that. I've seen people in rpg forums crow about doing that and it's like holy geez, guy, I guess...you sure taught your GM a lesson about trying to do something fun? What a hero.

    I'm really, really lucky to be playing with the people I am and that we all trust each other as much as we do. This game would be completely impossible without that.

    And yeah, I am desperately curious to know what's up with the Ghostier Rider as well.

    Finally got caught up reading this. Highlights include: beta-ray bill (and the entire space arc); Elise Arnell- Agent of Doom; any scene with Bob.

    Really appreciate all the work you've put in @Jacobkosh

    During this week's session, we were discussing the game system and I was arguing that for big fights, the potential forfeits for getting a partial success on a roll should be equally big. "Ryann has a choice: he can dash forward and snatch the Cosmic Cube out of Doctor Doom's hand, but in the process, he will shit himself."

    And without missing a beat, Jake starts belting out AND THEY SAY THAT A HERO CAN SAVE US, I'M NOT GONNA STAND HERE AND WAIT
