with Cyrus the Restless

Captain Tobias' Sword-Meeting with Cyrus the Restless, also called Cyrus Versus Captain Tobias,[1] is an unreleased project produced by former writer/art director Michael Kirkbride and lead designer Kurt Kuhlmann. It is an audio story featuring the original voice of Cyrus, Michael Mack, and the voiceover recordings were completed on Dec 14th, 2013.[1] It was announced on November 25, 2013 in celebration of the 15th anniversary of TESA: Redguard.[2]

Regarding the release, Kirkbride said in 2015 that he needed "to get the story to feel right". In 2021, he further explained that "The VO was recorded long ago. Some illustrations exist. Kurt's bit of the writing exists, but mine is scattershot. I love all of the existing elements, but I'm also well known for abandoning projects for large amounts of time. Short and unexciting answer: maybe one day. [...] it's a story that needs to be told in a specific way, as the prose and voiceover intertwine. Also, I told Michael Mack in what format his voice would be used, and I must hold to that. But... who knows, maybe I could release a snippet of it sometime in the near future, because frankly hearing a bit of the story in his voice is fucking awesome."[3]


As a general rule it is wise to always bring a wizard to sea if you plan to prey on it. My last wizard was a Breton Spellsword who I gangplanked for being a being a pederast, a not uncommon train found in the westernmost magicians. I then found Gar, a student of the Malhamic arts, and graduate of the Forums of the Phynastery. He has proven to be an invaluable part of the Carrick. He not only planned the heist of the Masser-Secunda Slave Trade, but summoned a Pelinal to cover our escape.[2]
