The Story: “Cleanup on Skyway 3″

Fiz and his team are the best cleaners in the business. If you’ve got a messy problem, they can make it disappear overnight — guaranteed. But when the folks leaving the mess are the Lightbringers, even Fiz and his boys might have their hands full…

At long last, Metamor City returns! This episode takes us back to the year 1974 Cristos Reckoning, when the researchers of Project Lightpath entered a mysterious magic-filled jungle in the name of scientific exploration. What they found there was unlike anything they expected — and laid the foundation for events twenty-five years later, on the other side of the world…

Rafak Aliri and the Book of Shadows – LIVE at Balticon 47

Posted by on 29 May 2013 | Tagged as: Audio Drama, Fantasy, Just For Fun, Kelsey, Mystery, Nobilis, Rafak, Xiang

Hey Metamorphs!

It was my pleasure this year to return to Balticon, along with a cast of highly talented men and women and an all-new Metamor City audio drama. The recording equipment we had was limited, so there are a few places where the audio glitched on us and doesn’t sound as good as I’d like — but the story is all there, and I think it getting the story out to those who couldn’t be there more than makes up for the limitations in the equipment.

“Rafak Aliri and the Book of Shadows” was written by Chris Lester and Mildred Cady, with some original music by Marnen Leibow-Koser.

The Metamor City Players, in order of appearance, are:

Chris Lester, as Rafak Aliri
R. E. Chambliss, as Betty
Hugh O’Donnell, as Neela Viornery
Mildred Cady, as Xiang Jinn
Doc Coleman, as a Worker and Lightbringer Agent #2
Laura Nicole, as Nona Candle
Bryan Lincoln, as Michael Spence
Patrick Scaffido, as Whitney Kendall
Nobilis Reed, as Caine Dorr
Veronica Giguere, as Agent Kelsey Stanton 

Other music provided by StackTraxx from Digital Juice and David Beard of David Beard Music. All music was used according to the provisions of the license agreement and/or by permission of the composer.
