Numenera - A Dream of Metal Part 1 (The Dirtbags of Holding)

Ever wanted to see an unedited version of the Dirtbags of Holding Podcast (including video???), well we streamed our previous session on Twitch, so know you can see all the stuff I normally edit out.

The Dirtbags of Holding sit down to try out Numenera by Monte Cook Games.  In this part, our crew meets up and head out into the Beyond to hopefully find clues to a family member who has been missing for decades.
