Quorum — The Gambler’s Tale: “All That Glitters,” Part 10 of 10

July 2012. As events come to a head, Jimmy Harmon finds himself finally confronting the conspirators behind the White Bluff Restoration Trust. But as the situation escalates, Jimmy is forced to grapple with an uncomfortable realization — and the sudden loss of a key ally. Unable to escape, Jimmy finds himself in mortal peril as the plotters take whatever action they can to prevent their schemes from coming to light — in shockingly extreme fashion.

“That’s what the kaoliang is for!”

Twelve years ago, I had an idea for what became Jabberwocky Audio Theater.

Eleven years ago, I knew the first show to kick it off: a space opera based on a fictional setting I’d been toying with since 1998. A pilot script was written. Auditions were held and a great cast assembled. “The Pilot” was recorded. More scripts were written. More recording. A lot of life happened in-between with plenty of starts and stops. However, as they say, theater is life with the boring bits cut out. So let’s deal with the now.

It’s twelve years later and the last episode of Rogue Tyger, episode 30, is done. It’s all ready to be broadcast and podcast starting Sunday, August 4th.

Those of you who listen to Rogue Tyger know that the fictional Tyger crew will kick back with a glass or several of kaoliang, a very real distilled liquor made from sorghum.

When I decided that the crew, and especially Enling, would favor this drink, I naturally had to do some research. The bottle you see above is one of the results of that research. Listeners more familiar with gaoliang –or baijiu in general– can let us know if this is a popular brand or not (it’s what was at a local liquor store that actually stocked baijiu). One of my happiest moments in writing “The Pilot” was confirming that people will drink shots of kaoliang chilled, and so I kept that scene with Aidan and Enling in the script. It’s always nice when things that work dramatically can reflect what’s been done culturally.

And now, these many years later, we’re at the final steps of that journey of so many miles. I’m absolutely ecstatic about what we’ve been able to do with this first show… and so it seemed more than appropriate to celebrate the way the crew of the Tyger would. I hope you all listen in to the season finale on August 4th and, should you care to, enjoy some kaoliang (though I have to caution you from personal experience: not being a Spacer, I’m still getting used to the taste).

干杯 ( Gānbēi !)

Yeah that’s a paper towel to keep my hand from freezing. It’s not like I’m Tinker who can hold ice-cold bottles without a problem… Plus, robots don’t drink kaoliang (mostly).

Listen Live! Quorum — The Gambler’s Tale: “Outstanding Debts,” Part 10 of 10

Tune in, right about now (at 4pm ET), as listen as our hard-boiled crime saga comes to a pulse-pounding conclusion (at least this season)!


Quorum — The Gambler’s Tale: Outstanding DebtsProfessional poker player Jimmy Harmon’s time in Las Vegas has been anything but routine. A bomb set by a henchman in the employ of Las Vegas gangster Wiktoria Sałkiewicz has apparently led to the death of his friend Will Archer. Sałkiewicz denies involvement, but they are attacked by armed gunmen before she can elaborate. Evading the attackers, Harmon and fellow gambler Rachael “Peeps” Leblanc head out of town, only to find a corpse half-buried in the desert, a set of unscrupulous federal agents in close pursuit. Returning to the city, Harmon seeks out veteran poker player “Big Mike” Dalton for help, only to discover that Dalton himself has been deeply involved in the past week’s activities. Dalton and the same gunmen who earlier attached Sałkiewicz hustle Harmon out to the hotel parking lot, only to run up against both the federal agents and the Las Vegas Police — a confrontation that results in a hail of unrestrained gunfire.
