The gang's about to start losing their religion over the number of revelations to be found in this portion of The Undercellar (Underceller...Undercellar...), but unending frustration (and the continuation of an existence in the state of being had) is just par for the course in this campaign! Halexan tries to pick up Ront's slack vis-a-vis Ysaile, R…
 
This is a VERY special episode and it's an experiment! David, player of Eadwig from my Etinerra campaign, submitted a fantastic adventurer's journal entry that I simply had to share. I've been listening to other spoken word/voice acting podcasts and thought I'd try my hand at reading the journal entry with some effects! I hope you enjoy it as much …

Taking a cue from how Tim Shorts of Gothridge Manor Podcast makes episodes in his car, I do some philosophizing about attracting players to old school games.

I've had a busy couple of weeks with a lot of games, so I share some of the things I've learned and observed. Plus, I get to a topic that I've really been looking forward to doing - demystifying AD&D combat! I share some opinions on why I think AD&D by-the-book combat gets a bad rap, and I set the stage for the next couple of podcast episodes that …
 
Down into the dark they go...off to fix a hindered flow. Brave they are, but they don't know...what their dancing lights will show.

Surprise! I promised no set schedule for this podcast, and yet here I am, a week later, with another episode. I DM'd quite a bit of AD&D last week, so I thought I would cover some of the more interesting elements: How I DM overland adventures Playing a strange race that is very alien in thought A quickie on AD&D by-the-book combat What happens when…
 
If Jidainkle is going to win this election, he's going to need all the help he can get from our friendly band of heroes!

Ront helps Jidainkle use his words, Thiathel makes some churchgoers feel very read, Conall runs into ka…

What two things do shady dealings in the backs of establishments and high-level political parlance have in common? Heavy use of cryptic speech and multiple ways of going south rather quickly! It's a great thing such "seasoned" adventurers are on the case! What discoveries will these two distinctly different meetings yield? Halexan gets a taste of d…
 
These cool cats had better keep their claws sharp, because the sicker they get with bright disease, the more slated they are for crashville. Focus your audio, put on your x-ray eyes, and interview your brains. Things might get real uncool real quick.
