For part 2 of the Balticon 47 Wrap up, we’re jumping right into the action with a special episode of Metamor City recorded live at Balticon! Regular listeners of Metamor City will have already heard this episode, but for those who have yet to discover Metamor City, this is a taste of the high quality storytelling you will find from Chris Lester and the others who have been able to play in Chris’ world.

Metamor City is set in a world where high technology and high magic live side by side, and literally on top of each other. A world where Vampires run the criminal underworld, Gods and Demons have been cast down from the heavens and live among the people as ordinary citizens, and the forces of light and darkness have an uneasy truce that allows both of them to cohabitate in the mortal world. Thrown into all this are elves, dragons, telepaths, and the odd green skinned Lutin. Metamor City is a whole world stacked vertically in four levels, with horrors lurking in the shadows of the darkest levels. It is a place where the beautiful woman you met last night may turn out to be a handsome young man this morning, or turn into a half-wolf or half-cat, or just be a thief or a wizard, using you to get near their target. It is a world of wonders, and intrigue, and deadly dangers.

And this year it was my pleasure to be part of it.

This year’s story was “Rafak Aliri and the Book of Shadows”, written by Chris Lester and Mildred Cady, and featuring some original music by Marnen Leibow-Koser. There were a few problems with the recording equipment, but think you’ll enjoy the results.
