About the Author
James D’Amato, the world’s foremost Kobold advocate, moved to Chicago in 2010 to train at Second City and iO in the art of improvisational comedy. He now uses that education to introduce new people to role-playing, and teach die-hard Grognards new tricks.

Skyjacks: Episode 115

While everyone was having their own adventures last week, Travis was sitting with some of his gloomier thoughts, as a bird. After the sun sets he decides to visit Bathroom Barry, the ship’s quartermaster for some advice. During this time he lets it slip that there might be a group aboard the Uhuru planning a mutiny.

CONTENT NOTE
Main Show: Unfolding existential crisis, there are a few bathroom-related jokes because Bathroom Barry is in this one, you are forced to imagine younger hor body-builder Spit, bullying
Dear Uhuru:  Mention of Spit having  a suspension fetish (that’s a rough google,) there is one point where Spit is just screeching “pornography” in the background. I swear this is an otherwise tame segment!

419. Heart Beats Part 2

Can heart transplant surgery cure homophobia? Will an underappreciated sibling’s ruse impersonating their more attractive counterpart result in bliss or disaster? Will a daring risk-taker perform a dangerous exploratory surgery to satisfy a medical insurance provider in a dark quid pro quo? Can something terrible please happen to Huckamule Kidcutter who is just THE WORST?

CONTENT NOTE
This series draws a lot of comedy from inappropriate conduct in a medical setting. James’ character repeatedly references losing child patients though no children are hurt in the course of the actual story. There is also frequent reference to how broken the US healthcare system and particularly health insurance is.

We join Captain Orimar Vale in the process of trying to restore order to his life. His office, his ship, and his body have moved at the whims of wills other than his own for nearly a year.

Meanwhile, Gable, Nodoze, and Pliff help Wendell Barge celebrate his upcoming nuptials with a new partner on week-long couture bachelor party hunting trip.

Skyjacks: Episode 113

The sun begins to set as the dinner-bell rings. Travis decides to see how valuable the information he won from the Morrigan is. Jonnit and Gable bully Travis for being insistent on having a constant existential crisis. They decide to peep into the future to put him at ease, a choice that I’m sure won’t have major implications down the line. Don’t worry about it.

CONTENT NOTE
Main Show:  kind of a reference to chronic pain, character reacting poorly to an emotional crisis,  metaphorical religious trauma,  a bit of grief
Dear Uhuru:  This is about Slick, Spit’s current/former boyfriend. It’s sexual.

417. Sentinel Comics Part 5

Our heroes continue their dramatic final confrontation with some of the world’s most dastardly villains. However, each villain they defeat seems to be reduced to harmless inanimate objects just like their previous confrontation. This begs the question: Are any of these fights real? Is it even possible to defeat the person behind this and return the city to normal?

Skyjacks: Episode 112

We join the Crew of the Uhuru in transit after leaving N’Goni. Their coffers are full (at least fuller than they were) and the crew is enjoying their time between ports while they determine what their next plan should be. Travis enjoys some light vanity reading, which turns out to be a nightmare. Jonnit takes some time to enjoy a smoothie and then joins Gable for a quick lesson on running the helm.
