Nine Realm productions presents...
A meta narrative story, a survival story, a travelogue, a chosen one story, and a changeling lore cult story. But how does the world end? That's up to you to decide.
There are five routes to travel to the end of the world, but we're glad you decided to fly this one...
It’s the end of the world as we know it and our Story, the story that holds all of us together, does not feel fine. Not at all.
The primordial embodiment of darkness tried to strip the Nine Realms of its Story. Of its hope, but it didn’t anticipate the second coming of the Storytellers. The Storytellers who breathe, dream, and live stories. The stories have returned to choose new Storytellers across all Nine Realms to give the Story it’s pieces back, story by story.
Only then can the world be saved or ended in accordance with the end of the Story.
Storytellers is a second-person narrative storytelling anthology podcast collection inspired by fairy tales and mythology about strong female characters and chaotic queer antics. Come for the chaotic queerness, stay for the stories about strength, hope, and love.
In an astral plane separate from the plane the Nine Realms exists on is an organization called Hitchhikers and Puddle Jumpers Incorporated. The employees of this particular organization beta test and take field notes on alternative plotlines. The organization has a 5% success rate of getting through a plotline alive, that’s six whole percentage points up from last year!!!
And just five kilometres away from that organization is a tea shop at the end of the universe. It’s a liminal space for wayward travellers and it makes a mean cup of cardamom tea. It also has quite a mind of its own, possible compliments of the shop’s wonky AI, Rachel-Iris 2.0.
In this workplace comedy spin-off series of Storytellers in the style of Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, four patrons (and two AI) try not to die or throw up as they saunter uncontrollably across thousands of alternative plotlines in Madhavi’s Travelling Tea Shop. These characters will attempt to uncover the bigger picture, understand the scope of humanity, and where we’re all headed as we shuffle vaguely onwards towards our demise. Or the question to 42. Whatever comes first.
So, don’t forget your towel, your copy of Hitchhiker’s Guide to Alternative Plotlines and your speciality tea as you saunter vaguely through the plotlines!
Long ago, in a realm tucked inside the mortal plane that could only be accessed by train just say “in a galaxy far far away.” I was trying to be accurate and also avoid copyright. Whatever, princess, there was a god who created an eternal and magnificent steam-powered labyrinth.
After he had perfected the labyrinth, he created two vessels for the spark of the light and the darkness. These became Iris and Kronos.
They’re not here for the history lesson, princess. Shut up! I’m giving context!
Then after successfully creating these two, the god Haphaestus created us, the people of the labyrinth as vessels to carry his spark. We take care of it and I’m their queen.
Yeah, here’s the real story…
In this podcast inspired by Hit the Bricks, a kick-arse lesbian princess and a renegade warrior who decided to tag along for the ride go on a coming-of-age adventure to survey the great labyrinth while intrigue lingers in the background and the end of the world looms in the future.
I think I did a better job of explaining it. Of course, you do.
