Amidst the Ancient Trees

Session 1 - 8/8/2018 Notes

The basic situation

Your characters (the Priest, the Mortician, the Criminal, and the Private Eye) are visiting the small, isolated town of Bennington, Vermont. (Sorry, I didn't remember the character names.)

While passing through the area, your characters have become aware of a certain situation which has placed a teenage girl in dire peril. Jane Strong, the daughter of local business magnate Lucas Strong, has been kidnapped and held for ransom. Being compassionate, good men at heart, you've all decided to pitch in and join the posse which will hunt down her kidnappers, the villianous Sidney Harris and his gang.

Podcast Ideas

These are podcast ideas / topics that I'd be interested and mildly-qualified to host or guest appear on. If you've got a podcast and you talk about something on this list, hit me up @ajkueterman.


Most likely, I'd love to make a show that can be some combination of all of the topics / show concepts I love.

  • Xbox Game Pass - we pick a different game every week or two on Xbox Game Pass, play and discuss.
  • Software/Hardware talk - talk about building software and the hardware we obsess over
