New Tales From The Borderlands Episode 3

The third episode of New Tales From Borderlands is called “Capital Pains” and it has 6 chapters. Equipped with a mysterious shard with healing properties, the gang attempts the obvious: turn to profit!

Story Breakdown

Chapter 1 – Kincaid’s Chronicles

“So you wanna hear a story, eh?”

Chapter 2 – Casual Gun-Day

The gang learns the Treasure is a shard that can heal. They do what anyone would do: shoot each other for fun. Realizing the shard can be the key to their own business, they try to raise capital.

Chapter 3 – Marketing Scheme

The gang infiltrates a game show. Anu sweats profusely. Octavio considers cheating. Fran makes a contestant feel awkward. So, great day!

Chapter 4 – Sink or Swim

Anu pitches her healing device. If they can avoid being devoured by sharks, they might actually get funding!

Chapter 5 – Future Tycoons

Packed to the gills with oodles of capital, the gang celebrates. They have a skateboard score, so, they’re officially a team!

Chapter 6 – Multitasking

The gang divides and conquers: Ock will find an office, Fran will find staff, and Anu will, naturally, find a corpse.
