Shahale part II Episode 1: Second Descent
Thank you for listening to our tales.Short "Season 1: Shahale" Plot Summary at the bottom. Episode Description: Our protagonists, Shahale and Ko-Dhunad descend from "The Depths", the old mining colony of the Delagardin, and into Dela Esvenada ("The Sleeping City"), and discover what perils lies before them, and they may be even more dangerous than what lied before. An Excert from Nessie's Journal Vol. III"The bliss here is wilted and shines a pale yellow. It does keep it just bright enough to not need a torch, but the scene becomes a bit monotonous after a while. According to the occasional barely legible remnants that I find on occasion, Dela Esvenada used to be one of two cities that lie one atop the other, the other being Don Veo. However, it seemed that this city was built for the "Vess Eddeve", which roughly seems to interpret to "misaligned ones". It seems that most of these people in their daily lives would participate in some kind of trade whether it be excavators, food and linen producers, or smithing and the like. Perhaps even some of them were sent from the here to "the Depths" to work and mine crystal plant who's long roots cut through and maintain the structural integrity of Dela Esvenada. Now, the only people that remain are those who are desperate enough, for this ruin hosts its fair share of dubious seeming creatures. They're much more diverse than the fauna I had encountered in the depths. They are by nature, alien seeming with each beast having it's own temperament and varying sets of intelligence. Were I not so good at staying hidden, I would recommend that none find their way to this site that should be forgotten instead. If only it were not for the great time saving advantage, I would favor avoiding this place as well."Short "Season 1: Shahale" Plot Summary Below:Shahale and Ko-Dhunad enter the Delagardin (the underground ruin that is the setting of the story) together. They face some monsters and are given a hard time. They meet an older spellcaster lady named Iona, who after allowing the duo to stay at her place for the evening, succesfully tempts (and slightly tricks) Shahale into giving Iona magical rights over his life in exchange for information on where Shahale's mother is. The two left and continued their journey and when they were in a spot of trouble, they were saved by a trio of people who's group they belonged was named "The Red Fangs". Shahale got seperated from Ko-Dhunad. At the same time, one of the Red Fangs members, Melba got seperated from the rest of her group as well. It was there she found out that these people were also after her mother, and after having an encounter with a monstrosity, Melba was poisoned and unconscious, and Shahale decided she should leave her. When Shahale meets back up with Ko-Dhunad and the rest of Melba's group, Shahale tell them that she had died in combat while they were traveling together. The group and Shahale part ways at the Forges, the last refuge of surface-folk adventurers. While their, they looked for a guide that Iona said would take them where they needed to go, and in a shock decision to Ko-Dhunad, she told him that he shouldn't come with her. It is there that she had unwittingly triggered the conditions that allows Iona to take Ko-Dhunad ,and she appears suddenly and disappears with him. Shahale decides to continue her journey to find her mother with this guide, and starts having nightmares about her betrayel. The Red Fangs come back for vengeance, kill her guide, and she's poisoned. She meets a master from her order who heals her, a half folk magician who encourages her, and she succesfully faces and outwits Iona and frees Ko-Dhunad as well as the other people Iona had taken from other incautious adventurers. Ko-Dhunad told Shahale he would continue going with her though she must promise never to do what she did again.

The Trials of Aniji One Shot (Ten Tabletop Tales)
Five brave souls are summoned by a mysterious mistress by the name of Malyuwen. She beckons them to undergo the three trials in order for them to gain access to The Magus Academy of Aniji, a little known but very prestigious academy dedicated to shaping those with potential into powerful mages. This one shot is our contribution to the Ye Olde Podsquad or @_PodSquad_ on Twitter comprised of 13 beautiful TTRPG discussion and actual play podcasts (ourselves included!) The members that are with us tonight and their podcasts are:Nikki from @Beholdertonoone (Beholder to No One)Kirk from @Wesuckpod (We Suck at D&D)Dan from @TheLast Tapestry (The Last Tapestry)Ellen from @BirdhouseMyst (The Birdhouse Mysteries)and Cassi from @ChosenOnesDnD (Chosen Ones) Art by @Nikki_bored on Twitter Aniji lies in the wide river that cuts through the top portion of the Delagardin. It is a castle built inside a carved out suspended boulder, and has been maintained by one magical family for over a thousand years. Every decade, the headmistress of this academy sends scouts across the world searching for those who show potential in the magical arts. When the initiates finish their training, they are often sent to locales across the world, to spread the influence of those with wizened minds and tempered attitudes, and to keep peace among the continents to the north. Some of the students remain at the academy and become teachers themselves, or get lost in pursuit of knowing the Delagardin further for some academics believe that knowledge of the bliss is akin to a certain kind of godhood.

Sherly Episode 8: The Fool
The season finale continues with Sherly and Muura dealing with the consequences of travelling through the sewers in Don Esso. The Essian Spider or the Essian Orber is a well known nightmare for the children of Don Esso. Being about the size of a horse, this spider makes its home in the corners and recesses of Don Esso that are unprotected by members of the Hunter's League. For one of them to make their home in the sewers of Don Esso is certainly a rarity, but anything is possible. The Essian Orber has a translucent chitinous exterior. When standing absolutely still, you might not even notice it except from the movements of interior glands and organs which are colored in a pale blue and violet hues. When bliss is left by itself undisturbed for years by air movements or the will of men, it will find it's way into the soil and it infuses with the plants that grow there. Ages of eating bliss infused flora is theorized by Nessie (the Researcher) to eventually lead to the mutation of whatever is eating it. Perhaps a family of spiders that found their way to the Delagardin have been eating the bliss infused flora for ages has mutated into the larger versions we might find now. Both magic and evolution make their impact on life here. She made the theory when she took a lot of Buer's weed from the Delagardin and watched as several generations of ants at from it. Every year, the ants would grow larger and larger. SPOILERS BELOW:
