Twilight Mirage is the fourth season of the tabletop RPG actual-play podcast Friends at the Table. The podcast is hosted by GM Austin Walker and features players Ali Acampora, Andrew Lee Swan, Art Martinez-Tebbel, Jack de Quidt, Janine Hawkins, Keith J. Carberry, and Sylvi Bullet.

Chronologically, it follows COUNTER/Weight and is followed by PARTIZAN, though each season's story stands alone.

Since the first grain silo, the first cathedral, the first ship, since the first computer, the first time we put pen to page—we’ve always made things bigger, quicker, longer lasting, different than us. For a long time, we thought we were building mirrors. But now we know better: We were setting fires.[1]



Twilight Mirage is set in the Divine Universe, the same mecha-centric space opera setting as COUNTER/Weight. It takes place roughly thirty thousand years after the events of COUNTER/Weight.
