The group splits up to take care of their individual problems.  Lucia, Lesleigh and Lena go to the Winter Court to negotiate the release of Jean; Luther (and Brandon, per Lena's request) head to Serafine's apartment to being a bodyguard detail; and Branch teams up with Constances' hired musclewizard Chad to help Emil get to the bottom of the vampiric abductions.  But nothing is quite as simple as it seems.  The Winter Court is visibly having problems of its own, without meddling summer fae.  Branch's plucky luck may have finally met its match.  And the thing Serafine fears so much is a curiously familiar stranger...

Note: The end of the episode has an announcement about the short-term future of the podcast, but in short:  we're unable to determine whether Kyle will be able to run games in the future.  It could be nothing, but the worst case scenario is 8 weeks.  To help, we are putting Steel City Rhapsody on hiatus, and playing Fellowship instead, GMed by Bee.  Even if it turns out to be nothing, we end up with some buffer, and we plan on coming back to Fellowship to fill downtime between campaigns.

Thank you for your support and understanding, as always.

Since their victory against the sentient, static cloud White Noise it’s been quiet and boring for the up and coming rag tag team of super teens, Perfect Chaos. In the basement of the Power Punch arcade, the gang receives a job offer from the gigantic robotic hero, Citadel. Impressed with their performance against White Noise, he wants their help in reclaiming a mysterious stolen artifact. But something here smells fishy… and this time it isn’t Gillian’s costume.

Can Petruso (Setsu), The Bull, use his speed and strength to protect his team and his crush?
Will May (Holly), The Legacy, be able to use her powers to help the people of Halcyon?
Can Hyacinth (Jovian), The Nova, keep their terrifying and dangerous powers under control?
Can Beth (Bee), The Doomed, keep her freedom and life from the cult that created her?
Will Gillian (Yoshi), The Janus, creep people out with her horrifying powers and costume?

Yes to that one. Always yes to that one.

When a week goes by and life gets too crazy to record a session, it's time for some new teen superheroes to step up to the task!  Meet Perfect Chaos, a second team in our Halcyon City canon.  Lead by GM Kyle, its members are Petruso "Arcadia" Pennington (Setsu), a human/goat gene splicing experiment with a gregarious personality; May "Nightfall" O'Connor (Holly), the latest in a legacy hero line with a tarnished reputation; Hyacinth "Oneironaut" Gamma (Jovian), a powerful psychic who can manifest their dreams; Betthaneigh "Arcana" (Bee), the accursed daughter of a cultist trying desperately to stop their terrible deeds; and Gillian "Scooper Duper" Fairgood (Yoshi), a standoffish goth who wears a full-body mascot costume to fight crime.  Today, you'll get to learn a little more about them, and the things they did when they first formed their team.  Later this week, we'll have their oneshot session up.

October has been a crazy and difficult month for us at Roll to Breathe, but it looks that the worst of it is over.  Next Wednesday there will be no episode; Steel City Rhapsody will return on November 8.  We thank everyone, especially our Patreon backers, for your patience.

After Lesleigh's botched shot at the antagonistic fae, the entire silver structure begins to bubble and collapse around the group and Lena's terrible visions threaten to pass.  A mad dash begins as those inside the structure try to escape and those outside attempt to flee before they are caught in the silver aberration.  Deals are stuck, magic is deployed, and lives are saved... but at what cost?
