This week I’m bringing you the live Metamor City audio drama that we performed for Balticon 50: RAFAK ALIRI AND THE GHOSTLY BRIDE!
Aliri is a lutin private investigator struggling to keep the lights on in his Street-level office. But when a wealthy young nobleman offers triple his fee to solve his fiancee’s murder, the green-skinned gumshoe finds that nothing is as it seems…

AUGUST GRAPPIN as a morgue attendant
LAURA NICOLE as Morgan Drauling
NOBILIS REED as a customer service rep
ELIZABETH REISINE as Isabelle
LAUREN HARRIS as Abbey Preston

And MILDRED CADY as Amelie Grace
With original music by Marnen Leibow-Koser
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
