Ep. 11 - "The Poor Player"

Seventeenth piece recorded by The Raconteur. Welcome back. We are excited to release a new episode of the Historical Recordings of The Raconteur. We've had a real breakthrough over the hiatus. A fragment of the first recording, thought to be lost to data corruption, was found within a file twenty-seven layers deep within the operating system's core engineering of the ancient satellite. The fragment has been included at the end of the recording. "It is often said that man is a poor judge of...


Ep. 9 - "The Correspondence of Parallels"

Thirteenth piece recorded by The Raconteur. We here at The Project have been so pleased to be able to share these historical recordings with the public. While there are some schools of thought that disregard the study of history, often citing that ridiculous adage uttered by that charlatan [REDACTED], "Today cannot be lighted by yesterday's sun," we believe that without understanding that which came before, we are at risk of falling victim to avoidable calamity. We hope that our efforts...


Ep. 8 - "Man-Made Paradise"

Twenty-ninth recording of The Raconteur. Our illustrious Curator has come to formulate a theory about The Raconteur, but remains a very guarded and empirically minded individual, refusing to share without proper evidence to support it. While the other members of The Project spend hours in speculative discussion, Curator simply looks on with a sly smirk. But we all can't help but wonder: Who was the man called The Raconteur? And who gave him that name? "It's a remarkable thing how the most...


Ep. 7 - "Tara Salt's Child"

Twelfth piece recorded by The Raconteur. We still know next to nothing about the "Inimitable Masako" to which The Raconteur always refers. We aren't sure if it was a era, a country, a city, or a person. But it is clear that he had a great reverence for the music they created, which is apt, as the ability to create music has become such a universally recognized requirement for greater intelligence. "It is natural that a babe should suckle of its mother. For a mother is naturally gifted with...


Ep. 6 - "The Abyss"

Sixteenth recording of The Raconteur. This episode gives us our first glimpse of The Raconteur himself. It also hints at an event that seems to be of some great importance to him, and perhaps the time in which he lived. "Man's capacity for evil is so much greater than he would ever allow himself to realize. And it is this very denial that allows it to reach such unfathomable fathoms." The Inimitable Masako -


Ep. 3 - 'The Wolf, The Spider, and The Zebra'

Fourth piece recorded by The Raconteur. It's been difficult trying to pinpoint when exactly these recordings were made, much less where. All we currently do know is that we've found no piece of digital data that post-dates these recordings anywhere in the world. "Where should one's loyalty lie? Should one lie to maintain that loyalty? In the end, the marriage of lies and loyalty begets not merely discord, but devastation." The Inimitable Masako -...
