About The Chimera

Hello, friends! We're The Chimera, an actual play podcast bringing you strange fiction, populated with unexpected characters in unlikely situations on improbable worlds, using a variety of TTRPG systems which we invariably bend to the point of breaking.

Our first campaign is The Old Bones, played with Onyx Path's StoryPath system. It's a super-powered space adventure in the tradition of cosmic Marvel & DC comics, filled with aliens, magic, space gods, techo-whales, mercenary lawyers, and meat melons!

Our second campaign is Misplaced, played with a heavily-mangled D&D 4e, and set in Greyhawk — kind of.  Five Acquaintances set sail for a far off land--one they will never reach. Beset by monsters and hounded by fate, they must play the cards they're dealt.

All Patrons receive access to:

  • Behind-the-scenes content (including character and setting write-ups, in-depth breakdowns of hacked and home-brewed systems, and transcripts of in-world fiction)
  • Exclusive episodes (one-shots, mini-games, and side-stories)
  • Art polls, where patrons will be able to vote for a character they'd like to see drawn by our own Eisner-award-winning Braden Lamb
  • MORE?
$40.72 of $50 per month
At this level, we'll invest in improving our software recording setup.
