Meet Artist Robert Soden at Darkscorch Party Friday

RazzPortrait San Jose, 2005: Ken Shipley is rooting through his mother’s spare bedroom closet and discovers a plastic bin full of notebooks, character sketches, maps, and various artifacts pertaining to a fantasy world referred to as Eldara. Conferring with his mom, these turn out to be the remains of a decade spanning Dungeons & Dragons campaign led by Shipley’s stepfather, Robert Soden (known as “Raztus” in game play). The game began in high school and followed the participants through community college and into early adulthood, halting some 20 years later. In 2010, when talks of Warfaring Strangers: Darkscorch Canticles began in earnest, Numero knew that cover art was already in the can.

This Friday, we’ll be returning to our beloved Comfort Station in Logan Square to roll out (pun intended) our new board game, Cities Of Darkscorch. On display will be historical documents from Robert Soden’s role-playing odyssey, a stoned and stonewashed universe akin to In The Realms Of The Unreal. We’ll have copies of the game on hand if you care to play, purchase, or simply peruse, and we’ll be listening to our hard rocking companion album all the while.
