Worlds Away is a brand new actual-play storytelling podcast from Jon Ossip, Helie Dharia, Michael Morales, Mo Shatara, and Lauren Wilbanks.
We’re five close friends who love to play games and create heartfelt stories together. On Worlds Away, we use role-playing games to build new worlds for you and our characters to explore. Join us at the table and discover the futuristic, the fantastic, and everything in between.
Worlds Away’s first season, Convergence, begins 250 years in our future. Humanity is an interstellar species, and has just survived its first civil war in space. The story follows the Minerva Project, a mission sent into the Verge—the home of all known life outside of Earth.
While their mission begins as a push for unity with Earth’s former colonies, the four members of the Minerva Project crew will soon learn a secret that threatens the future of humanity’s presence in space.
A political figure made famous after tragedy struck his family, Nasir was once an engineer who called the Verge his home.
As he returns to humanity’s frontier for the first time in years, Nasir will also face the past that he tried to leave behind.
As Chief Technology Officer of Genesynth, Mara is the scientist responsible for the crops that allowed humanity to thrive in the Verge, and to eventually gain their independence from Earth.
On this mission, she’ll be forced to leave the comfort and routine of her life on Earth, as she encounters first-hand the results of her work and the realities of life across the stars.
Her unparalleled talents have earned her a place in the Minerva Project, but the truth behind her success could put everything at risk.
A member of FSOC—the Fleet Special Operations Command—and a veteran of humanity’s only war in space, Arnaud has spent his career protecting Earth’s unified Republic from outside threats.
But as he unexpectedly joins the Minerva Project crew, Arnaud will learn that the greatest dangers to the Republic may come from within.
