An actual play podcast of high adventure, low dice rolls and intermediate levels of terrible puns in which five old friends imagine ourselves to be dynamic and exciting heroes in a game of Dungeon World. Crudely Drawn Swords is a long-term campaign following a team of heroic(?) adventurers as they follow a quest that will take them through strange lands, across dangerous seas and on perilous journeys through unknown regions. If you are a fan of podcasts like Friends at the Table, The Adventu ...

It was the broken age, an age of disaster and peril, a time where the only way to survive the brutal onslaught of endless chaos was for each person to know their place. Who they could trust, who they would follow, who could protect them. Only a few brave rogues had the wherewithal to live outside the strict laws, to forge their own path and fight a…
 
Spoiler Alert: Do not listen to this episode unless you want to be hit with spoilers for the whole of Crudely Drawn Swords up to the end of Season 3. Definitely don't start here!This is our end-of-season retrospective, where we answer listener questions about the show so far and whatever other important matters they wanted to know about.This was or…
 
Bambari you are making a journey few westerners have managed since the days of the Stone Empire - I don’t know whether even Jack of the Wild made it that far across the plains, almost to the eastern barrier range. Your accounts will be extraordinarily valuable for scholars interested in those realms and, I suspect, as a record of a changing world. …
 
Saffron,I’m really sorry we are taking so long. I wanted to destroy the sword to destabilise Hector's power. But Percy won’t let me. He thinks it’s too big a risk. I think we’re losing anyway so we should take a chance. I’m not going to debate it anymore and I’m not going to try and destroy the sword. But I am going to use the power available to us…
 
I knew that when you wandered out in the world you would be capable of great things and it sounds like that is exactly what you are doing! There won’t be many people around who have experience like you do.The birds have told me about the soldiers at the edge of the woods, but fortunately they know that it is a narrow band of forest between them and…
 
How exciting for you! You’ve got the principles of the curse breaking just about right, but the danger with undoing a Great Work is that there are an awful lot of strands and many of them will be stretched very tight, like trees under a heavy snow ready to spring back the moment it starts to melt. When that balance starts to shift and the tension i…
 
Hi MumThe grimoire you gave me details a number of curses and how to focus them in. The glyphs should reverse and send the power out if I reverse them right? I need to amplify a curse resolution key. I’m pretty sure we are going to be in the place of the curses origin and will be conducting the solution. However I think the curse has spread much fu…
 
We’re getting reports that Farmouth has fallen, the walls pulled down and the preceptory of Akone’s order burned to the ground. Assuming they continue to skirt the Woodmarch there is really nothing left between the army of the Ice and us. If they press northwards then we are in serious trouble. I hope things are going better for you, Bambari. I am …
 
A little more for you, I managed to find a retired Smith-enchanter who was one of the teachers at the Iron Church back when this Hector Korvaylan character was learning. Said he was very bright, interested in the theory behind the processes of enchanting and the source of the power used in the craft. The conversation was a little difficult, actuall…
 
Hector? I no longer have access to the records of the library, of course, but I have asked around and according to Preceptor Merrow there was a squire-in-training with the Iron Church here in the city a long time ago- at a guess this might have been at a similar time to when the Paladin was in training. He was in training to be a church knight and …
 
I daresay things are going very well where you are now, you’re probably having a cheerful frolic through springtime on the plains. I will wager you don’t have to go to a single boring formal dinner with tiresome aristocrats and wealthy merchants all very keen to reassure us that they have always supported us and always will while we are quite aware…
 
In spite of our spy networks and the careful thought of our best minds, it is hard to grasp why this is happening to us. We lived in peace with Sudec for centuries - they were our friends and rivals. Then the cold revolution happened and suddenly they are driven by this furious goddess of the ice to overwhelm us? Why won’t they negotiate? Why are t…
 
Well, I am back in old Merrowvale. The palace is very different now - it feels empty without our royal father and quiet in the absence of Jasmine and Wintergreen, and yet there are people coming and going constantly as it has become something of a command centre for the war effort. Mother is holding up well, trying to ensure that the retreat northw…
 
You do not give yourself enough credit - it was your work in deriving the shared principle between both pencil and eraser that made this possible. I suspect the alchemists and smith-enchanters who worked on Reaching Scrolls before never saw the value of the humble pencil, so you really showed those pen pushers. Travelling is a little tiresome, so I…
 
HiDo you remember when we thought you couldn’t use the reaching scroll once you’d written on it. Before we knew your could rub the pencil out?Those were simple times. Your previous message would have been “beasts attack Farndale - possible connection to Sleidlar. Danger Danger Bambari Lutes”. Trust me when I explain it to the rest, this is how it w…
 
I’m writing from Asterope’s Dawnstar, a ship making south towards Merremouth. Among the passengers here is a knight who was present at the fall of Farndale, one of the first battles where the war beasts were used. She has given me some details of the beasts and how they were used. First there were vast bull-necked creatures three or four times the …
 
Incidentally, I met the Blessed Pelwar yesterday and she mentioned that two days ago the last three members of the crew from The Ghost finally got home, along with the captain, who had made what sounded like a profoundly arduous journey along the Salt Coast, before reaching Maresca, where they persuaded some fishermen to bring them along to Aru-Sha…
 
Well Bambari, this is quite an audacious plan! From what I understand of the weapon in question it is very hard to predict what the outcome will be. I think it depends on the nature of the sword, which we know to be a shard of Ulumbraya’s power significant enough that it had to be taken from her before she could be trapped by the old powers. The qu…
 
Morning, Please let me know if they do encroach on the Woodmarch. My mother lives in the woods and I want to make sure she’s safe. Not that I could do much from here. But I sure as hell would try and fly back. I don't think I can make it that far, certainly not by myself. I think I said before there's a big ol curse affecting this entire land. I’ve…
 
Along the mountains they seem to be skirting Woodmarch, perhaps there is nothing there to interest them, but every time our armies have tried to hold them on the north road, it has proved both costly and ineffective. I am lead me to wonder whether the presence of the artifact the Paladin carries was somehow slowing them down or making them more car…
 
I’m afraid the news from the south is not all good - we were hoping that with winter turning, the Icewatchers would have less power to draw on, and to a degree that is true: Our troops are suffering less under the force of their magic, but they seem to have spent the winter training their forces and where they were previously ill-trained peasants, …
 
Bambari, good to hear from you!Did you have a bound scrying mirror, by any chance? I have seen some of those, and they always seem to have some quirk or limitation. I once saw one that only showed images as though reflected in turbulent water, another that could dictate exactly what it perceived but at a very great length so picking out the relevan…
 
Your sister appears to be doing ok. She's anti stealing some gem we’ve been set up with. Before we pulled into your city we were on a boat. Someone stole my stuff and evidently sent a part of my magic mirror to a guy calling himself Death, bit much, and he’s set us up as revenge for killing his insane brother. I guess the mirror part was small enou…
 
Hi Saf,Yeah we’ve met them. After our ship crashed we walked in the desert for ages. Then they picked us up. It was pretty fortuitous, if they hadn't rolled past we definitely would have died.A few of them speak our language a little, which is weird because there is such a disconnect between the kingdoms. The sea is obviously not well travelled but…
 
WANTED FOR THEFT AND HIGH TREASONFour very dangerous individuals have been reportedly involved in serious crimes against several hemu and against our entire people. They are all foreigners, pale skinned and sinister of demeanour, with untrustworthy expressions and clear ill intent. One is male, small, appearing as though a very young man, but do no…
 
Well, I hope this is helpful at any rate. That is the overview of what I was able to learn about the bloodlines. If you need any more detail on anything I found, I would be happy to provide it. You have been out in the plains for a while now, how are things going? Did you end up encountering the Lunzideren?…
 
This slender knowledge is most of what I was able to ascertain from the records in our library, however I did speak about the topic briefly with Blessed Pelwar recently, asking obliquely whether any records of the Diabolist’s life survived. The Blessed has some significant scholarship in addition to her formidable organisational abilities and altho…
 
So, we know that the lineages precede our histories, they seem to be hereditary as does the aptitude for magic - in the latter case we do see rogue talents appear but I have found no evidence of anyone spontaneously developing an elemental lineage. The lack of scholarly information here is profoundly frustrating, but it is plausible that wherever t…
 
Unfortunately most of what I have managed to find is not from works on natural philosophy or magical theory - those seem to be the ones that were targeted - instead it comes from folkloric and mythic contexts. The texts tend to be opaque, whimsical and whatever truth they contain is often buried under layers of storytelling. There are however consi…
 
I have spent the last week researching into the matter of bloodlines and it has proven very difficult. It is well established that some people are naturally attuned to the latent power of the elements and that this is something that appears to be hereditary. If I include folktales and hearsay there are accounts of people attuned to ice, fire, stone…
 
Now my dear boy, I can understand that you are afraid that this makes you a pariah squared, but think about it this way: Either you are a pariah or you aren’t. If you are one already, how different is it? Hardly at all! People may not like what you are, but they can be persuaded - especially if you have the art of charms at your fingertips. Just re…
 
Well I don't think we’ll be back anytime soon, so it should have died down...or we will have.Writing this real fast as things possibly about to be fairly ropey. There's a caravan or troop of people(?) heading our way on the lands just south of the salt desert. Any idea about their ways or customs?Also still no kitten pics???? How hard is that to so…
 
Yeah I noticed, Percy’s pretty sunburnt and cranky. But thanks for just asking after him. We’re all in trouble.The quill ink evaporated in the desert leaving just black mush, hence I haven't replied. We’ve just found some water, which is great as I was pretty sure we were going to die. Percy's great and all but I really don't think he thought this …
 
Oh! You met young Otelo did you? And he took our surname after all? How charming for you! Is he still a sweet and shy boy? Did he recognise you? I have often wondered how things worked out for him after he left - it was a good time but I could tell the forest wasn’t the right place for him. He needed more people and I don’t really enjoy human compa…
 
Hi Mum,I learnt to make the reaching scrolls in a library in Aru-sha. We’ve gone pretty far away, much further than I thought we’d go. We’re in a desert currently. Its big and bleak and I thought we were going to die. We’ve found water and I’ve rehydrated the ink meaning I can write to you. I’m not going to lie it's going to be a mixed bag this let…
 
As The Hawks realise that Tristan was not, in fact, hallucinating wildly it becomes clear that they need to take the threat posed by The Consumer seriously. Unfortunately, they are congenitally opposed to seriousness in all its forms, so this may prove a challenge far beyond their capacities.By Crudely Drawn Swords
 
I found this in some correspondence from Teren Galla, a priest of Maia displaced during the Cold Revolution."I was the village priest in a small village by the name of Calderburn in southern Sudec for a few years and among the children of that village was a pair of twins named Taryu and Lemek- sweet little things they were, plump and black haired. …
 
The prospector's account continues thus:"I was a little spooked by that and it gave me no inclination to return for some time, in fact I did find myself some sizeable copper ingots that would sell for good money if I could get 'em back to Merwall but I put off travelling back that way for a while and went further east a ways. Even spent some time a…
 
Season 3 of Crudely Drawn Swords begins - if you haven't listened before, we hope that this will provide an excellent jumping-on point. If you have, then buckle in- The Hawks are back and they have a whole new set of problems to contend with...---------------------------------Bambari, this is interesting - from a source related to Enigma's network,…
 
The journey along the North Coast got off to a somewhat unfortunate start, but surely the crew of The Ghost will be more than able to get everything back on an even keel ready to handle whatever challenges their quest should present to them. This follows closely from "The North Coast, Part 1" and if you haven't listened to that episode, it provides…
 
The Hawks are back at sea and it was time for them to have a break, for us to follow some other characters, so in this episode and the next we will be learning about the heroic crew of The Ghost who are striving to navigate a perilous and uncharted ocean and bring their passengers safely to their distant destination. Fortunately the crew consists o…
 
The Hawks are ready to travel- there is just time to tie up some loose ends in Aru-sha before they board their ship and say goodbye to the comfort and safety of the western lands where they have made themselves so many friends during their adventures. Percy darts in, Bambari expresses the beauty of flight, Enigma takes a seat and Tristan gives an o…
 
Bambari has made a lot of difficult discoveries lately and now it is time for him to learn something of his place in the world, while outside the bridge of flame, the Hawks are laying metaphorical cards on the table. Tristan is a good guy really, Enigma is the shadow of a memory, Bambari is an angry teenager and Percy is just one man in this well-d…
 
The Hawks have been keeping it underground as they investigate the blocked waterway that is leaving Aru-sha thirsty. As they close in on the cause of the problem things prove to be both simpler and far more complicated than they might have expected. Tristan is strong versus fire, Enigma is bringing the steam, Percy is understating the situation and…
 
The Hawks have seemingly exhausted every opportunity to make an easy buck by simply asking someone to give them a huge amount of money and being given a huge amount of money and it seems that, filled with anger and resentment at the unreasonableness of not having won the lottery when they didn't even buy a ticket, our heroes will have to demean the…
 
Financing a ship sailing for months through dangerous waters turns out to be a very expensive proposition, the hawks now realise they need to get hold of a lot of money, information, money, cosmetic surgery and money. Time to hit up their contacts and persuade someone to give them a huge amount of money for no good reason. Tristan gets seated, Perc…
