Episode 59- Secret Vote

It's a rough time for our adventurers who are still reeling from the loss of one of their own. Thankfully, there is a beacon of hope in the darkness. And it's a gnome dressed in a penguin's skin. It sounds less beacon of hope-like when you put it that way. Regardless, Namee has warmed the hearts of his new party members. Notice how we're saying his party members. Because it's his party now. You'll see.

With the funeral at an end, the team is called back to the Red Halls where the horror that is politics awaits them. The Onyx Shields are voting for their new leader, and something is off about the tally. Will Kort have a very ugly moment? How excited is Rath going to be about getting to talk to a bunch of Onyx Shields? Will Blag forget who someone he once considered a dear friend is? And will there be a new villain named Chad hanging around? No, but that would have been a great political reference for our younger listeners!

Episode 57- Heroic Moment

It's time! Time to take on the Vampire Lord Baron Von Uberdorf! Time to save Tor's daughter and prevent her transformation into one of the Baron's minions. Time for our adventurers to almost certainly get their asses handed to them. But first, they decide to focus on smashing a couple coffins. Because we haven't waited long enough for this fight! And although the Baron may be soft-spoken, it turns out you do not want to mess with his furniture! 

When the Baron decides he's had enough of their intrusion it does not go well for the party. Rath almost explodes from one of the Baron's vicious attacks. Seriously. He barely avoids a hit so hard, it would have probably turned him into a pile of goo. Kort brings an elephant to the party. Blag gets to live out one of his favorite monster fight fantasies. And Tor does what he does best and changes everything.

Episode 56- Simon Says

After patting themselves on the back to celebrate all the danger they heroically ran away from, our adventurers ready themselves to confront the Baron and rescue Tor's daughter. They heal up and confer with the vampire hunter they just saved for any pro tips. But the last time this guy went against the Baron he ended up as a zombie. So, he may not be the best resource. Maybe the Baron isn't all that he's been hyped up to be though. He's probably got some stereotypical bad guy voice just to seem tougher than he really is.

As the party enters the final chamber, will the Baron mind the interruption? How will he feel about these guys going through all his stuff? Will the party try diplomacy or just start throwing hammers? And will Rath be able to stop Kort from saying something they might all regret? It's time to confront a Vampire Lord!

Episode 55- Can’t Lose Health if You’re Dead

Last episode we left our adventurers in a room with a creature that may or may not be a dwarf child. As I was sitting here thinking of how best to describe the party's imminent destruction, I did what any professional episode describer does and got distracted by the internet. There I found an article about D&D enemies that appear weak, but are really nasty. Interesting, especially given the situation our team finds themselves in! But then, I saw the image they tagged on to it. A glorious squirrel wielding an axe and a shield, riding through a battlefield on a frog. Now they had my full attention!

Scrolling through the article revealed no dwarvish girls that are clearly a death trap. In fact they even had a vampire on there which was unexpected seeing as how we know one is waiting to just obliterate our adventurers at the end of this mausoleum. Sure they may look harmless, but even our team of not-quite heroes knows vampires are bad news. "Odd", I thought, but I scrolled on as my sights were set on the majestic war squirrel. And despite all the horrors we've witnessed in this current dungeon, the true horror of this story is how I came to the bottom of the article with no mention whatsoever of this beautiful warrior. I had been struck down by the biggest fiend of them all, the clickbait! 

So yes, things happen in this episode. Many of them are awful. Like Kevin's lost heroic moment. And Kyle's lost time making encounters our team skips right by. I'd love to tell you all about that, but right now I'm too busy researching Squirrelfolk for my next D&D character. Grab your acorns, and get ready for winter! Not because of anything that happens in this episode, but you know, squirrels.
