Quorum

Throughout history, there has always been a chasm between the bulk of humanity and the enigmatic circle who hold true dominion. Those whose influence remains shrouded, save for the rare instances when their designs cross into the outside world.

In this noir-tinged hardboiled-crime anthology series, an assortment of people living on the fringes of respectable society, in locations across the world, find themselves caught up in nefarious plots far beyond their experience, caught in the nexus of history-making events. From a professional poker player trying to make up for past choices, to a bicycle messenger hoping to finish one last job, to a seasoned navigator piloting a ship through treacherous waters, and more, each must grapple with rapidly escalating peril, little realizing they are mere pawns in the grand schemes of an ominous council manipulating events behind the scenes: the omnipresent Quorum.

Las Vegas. The events of April create ripples in the lives of several of the participants in this Patreon exclusive.

The Authorities

Washington, DC, September 2011. A city as renowned for pushing papers as for pushing deadlines. Where the machinery of American government fights tooth and nail against the encroachment of twenty-first century technology… clinging desperately to methods, communication styles, and entire industries rendered obsolete in the world beyond the Capital Beltway.

The Messenger’s Tale

“The Candidates” is a Patreon exclusive that takes place around the events of “The Messenger’s Tale“ and documents both the buildup to and the fallout from the events of that interlude episode.

The Candidates

Los Angeles, August 2012. “The Attorneys” captures key found audio after the dramatic events at the conclusion of “The Gambler’s Tale: All That Glitters.” Lawyers are involved, and so is Robin Freeman.

The Attorneys

Basel, August 2012. Near-to-retirement Swiss harbor pilot Klaus Brunner is nearly home after a long day’s work when he is called back to direct an unexpected late-night cargo ship departure. But what seems a routine if inconvenient assignment changes dramatically when he discovers the true nature of the cargo they’re carrying — and must take drastic action if he hopes to escape with his life.
