In this week's episode, after hightailing out of a party that Cannibal Death Cult was playing at, our group of kids nearly ran over a strange boy without a jacket during a snowstorm. They tracked him down through the forest and there were flashlights and gunshots. Joel gets launched against a tree when he threatens the boy, this kid is really weird. They got back to the truck and were being chased by roided out and mutated pitbulls. We left off last episode at Lance's house, with a loud banging on the door in the dead of night....who is out there and who is this mysterious kid? Why are some members of the town wearing mysterious bandages on their foreheads? Listen to find out!
Game Overview from Renegade Studios: "In Kids on Bikes, you'll take on the roles of everyday people grappling with strange, terrifying, and very, very powerful forces that they cannot defeat, control, or even fully understand. The only way to face them is to work together, use your strengths, and know when you just have to run as fast as you can."

We are setting our game in a small, middle class town in Colorado in the year 1985....the town is far enough away from Denver to have very little going except for skiing, which the town depends on for their lively hood. Ruby Weaver's family owns a older ski-resort with a giant fiber-glass penguin that was built in the 1950's and is really starting to show its age. Recently, a new ski lodge opened in town and her family is currently struggling to make ends meet and compete. Also, the town is infamous for a statue in the town square made for the notorious alleged cannibal, a pioneer (who is less famous than the Donner party)named Alfred Packer. Also, the town is trying to get over the bad publicity following a string of murders that have taken place in the town over the last few years.
