S02E15 - D&D 5e - DOOMSPIRE: Tower of Wishes - Round One
"I mean, what is there to deliberate about? Open the goddamn door with two diamonds!" Who dares enter the black obelisk of the Wizard Nekelshim? Four shall brave entry but how many shall leave? Whose mettle shall withstand the unspeakable traps and trials within? Will Cam remember all of the words to the fight song? How many owls shall be regurgitated? All this and more, as we play round one of DOOMSPIRE: Tower of Wishes for Dungeons & Dragons 5e. NOTE: This session originally contained a continuous musical soundtrack which, for copyright reasons, we cannot include.

S02E13 - The Dee Sanction - Ex Libris - Part 1 - The Heresy of Emerson, Lake & Palmer
The year is 1593. Spared the hangman's rope for their heretical transgressions, four gentlemen of London - under the orders of Master John Dee - make a clandestine trip to Deptford to retrieve a prized book from one of England's greatest seafarers (no, not that one), only to find themselves embroiled with enormous vermin, mechanical men, and a bloodthirsty playwright (no, not that one). It's much ado about copious amounts of blood in our first foray into "The Dee Sanction" (http://thedeesanction.com/)

The Candlecreeps finally arrive at the market in Millport and attempt to track down the source of Candlekeep's seemingly cursed books? Will diplomacy prevail, or will it end in utter chaos like the Saskatoon Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince in-store of 2005?

S02E10 - Candlekeep Mysteries - Mazfroth's Mighty Digressions - Episode 1 - Maserati's Disparate Sandwiches
Books are attacking browsers at Candlekeep's library. Could a shady book hawker be the cause? Have no fear, for the Candlecreeps are on the case. If anyone can get to the bottom of this mystery it's this gang including definitely not Swamp Thing, what's that video game character?, and certainly not reassuring daytime television attorney Matlock. And remember to always eat something, kids.

S02E07 The King of Dungeons - Keep on the Borderlands Part 7 - Flight of the Keanu
A missing girl, a mysterious medusa, a troublesome new hire, and a horrendous bar tab. Our heroes get more than they bargained for every step of the way, as they stumble through the thrilling conclusion to our playthrough of Gary Gygax's 1979 D&D classic "The Keep on the Borderlands" using Baz Stevens' "The King of Dungeons" ruleset. Loosely using the scenario from "Into the Borderlands" published by Goodman Games, and using the ruleset from King of Dungeons.

S02E06 The King of Dungeons - Keep on the Borderlands Part 6 - The Shrine of Evil Chaos
What treasures lie in the secret flap beneath a brutal torturer's sweaty loincloth? What about Ars Magica? What about World of Darkness? These, and other pressing questions will be answered in this week's episode, as we draw ever nearer to the conclusion of our playthrough of Gary Gygax's 1979 classic "The Keep on the Borderlands", played here using Baz Stevens' marvelous "King of Dungeons". We had a bit of a calamity, as our recording dropped out for the last 30 minutes or so, so this episode ends rather abruptly. But we shall regale you all with what happened at the beginning of our next episode (hint: A LOT HAPPENED). Loosely using the scenario from "Into the Borderlands" published by Goodman Games, and using the ruleset from King of Dungeons. Both of which we wholeheartedly recommend. https://goodman-games.com/store/product/original-adventures-reincarnated-1-into-the-borderlands/ https://www.drivethrurpg.com/product/273672/The-King-of-Dungeons

S02E05 The King of Dungeons - Keep on the Borderlands Part 5 - The Temple of Evil Chaos
Our characters level up, and our relationship with King of Dungeons enters its difficult second stage, where its little quirks begin to annoy us, but the sex is still very, very good so we overlook them. Our heroes, aided by the bandit captain Dee Dee Raven, enter into the caverns that house the Temple of Evil Chaos in a bid to free Millicent from the clutches of the vile Osseus the Filthy. Along the way, Bohdi makes an unusual new friend. Loosely using the scenario from "Into the Borderlands" published by Goodman Games, and using the ruleset from King of Dungeons. https://goodman-games.com/store/product/original-adventures-reincarnated-1-into-the-borderlands/ https://www.drivethrurpg.com/product/273672/The-King-of-Dungeons

S01E26 Dungeons & Dragons Playthrough - Frozen Sick Part 4
We're taking the halfling to Eiselcross. Thrill as our heroes shop for good value in rations. Gasp as they negotiate suitable transportation. And weep tears of quiet comfort as they share a very special seasonal moment. Our cleric finds a sexy book, our wizard rolls a 2, our rogue wheels and deals, and our fighter once again gets pummeled to within an inch of his life. Just another day in Wildemount.
