Emergency Power Podcast is a mostly wholesome, always exciting actual-play podcast set in the Starfinder universe. Join Scrif, Pons, and NR-5E as they adventure through a homebrew science-fantasy adventure written by GM Adam Damas.

New episodes every other Saturday!

Adam has crafted stories while drifting off to sleep every night since he was just a young lad. When he and his friend, Jeff, got together at the gaming table, he finally found an outlet for all the settings, plotlines, and situations he had accumulated over the years. This gave him the opportunity to create a reality others could bask in, while learning and improving through the experiences and choices they make.

From Exodus and the Hero System to D&D 5th Edition, Starfinder, and LARP, the games he took part in produced many exciting twists and turns. For over a decade these types of stories and the relationships they built have shaped his life and given flight to his dreams.

As a storyteller, Adam continues to explore and reach for new heights of imagination and expression. You can often find him bent over a keyboard, on an endless quest to add that one detail into his world and narratives that will ignite his players’ imaginations -- just as they so often do for him.

Adam is the GM.


Jeff got into tabletop RPGs alongside GM Adam, starting with the post-apocalyptic d20 system Exodus. Throughout his 11 years of tabletop gaming, Jeff has GMed (and sometimes played in) many campaigns drawn from a variety of sources, most notably HERO, Fate Core, Mutants & Masterminds, Mouse Guard, and now Starfinder.

Along the way, Jeff spent several years participating in two southern California LARPs: Dying Kingdoms and Twin Mask. He also earned a black belt in Shorin-ryu Shorinkan Karate. When not taking part in tabletop sessions, he spends most of his time playing indie PC games, watching kung fu films, and checking out new local restaurants. He currently lives and works in North Carolina as a Linux systems engineer.

Jeff plays Scrif Dovetail, the ysoki mechanic and inventor down on his luck.

Character Sheet


Friend and former coworker GM Adam introduced Cooper to RPGs in 2018 with a D&D 5e homebrew campaign. The project brought work friends together on a weekly basis, only slowing when players ran their own modules. After finishing his own 5e homebrew campaign, Cooper found himself thrown into space with the goal of mastering the newer Starfinder system.

Outside the podcast, Cooper works as a competitive gymnastics coach and facility manager in California. A former gymnast himself, he struggled to communicate with others after leaving the competitive scene at age 18. Through coaching and roleplaying, he continues to improve with the goal of better helping those around him. He aspires to shape elite level athletes and dominate the sport one day. In his leisure time, Cooper also enjoys cartoons, anime, golfing, paintball, and airsoft. During the competitive season he also likes to search for restaurants, ice cream parlours and tea shops throughout the California coast.

Cooper plays Pons Nerian, the young contemplative Mystic who views reality with a naive optimism.


Richard Moore started gaming in 1991 at the age of 9 with the “New, Easy to Learn Dungeons & Dragons” boxed set and hasn’t stopped since, despite his players’ regular pleas for mercy. He has worked as an in-house editor at third-party roleplaying game publisher Jon Brazer Enterprises since 2011, as well as written game supplements for other publishers as a freelancer.

A lifelong native of North Carolina, Richard’s professional background includes work in the fields of real estate, internet marketing, and structural engineering. Among his many design credits with JBE, he is the lead designer of Reign of Ruin, a mid-level fantasy adventure module available for four different game systems, and lead developer of The Gilded Gauntlet, a high-level dungeon deathtrap designed for compatibility with the first edition of the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game.

When he's not in the word mines or attending to the needs of his house tigers Brandy and Cognac, Richard can be found walking his neighborhood in North Raleigh, swimming and kayaking at Falls Lake, or playing games and sipping whiskey with his partner and friends.

Richard plays NR-5E, Sentient Robotic Organism Operative and Bodyguard seeking to recover his erased memory.
