Episode 91- Nocked Around

Having stumbled into the dwarven ruins in the desert, our team has begun their search for the magical lamp controlling the djinn that is laying waste to the land. During the exploration, they come across an enchanted sword that has quite a way with words. Bonding with Nock, the sword is about to show our party just what it can do as they come across some shambling skeletons. Here's a hint, it's awesome!

Finally, the full team has a chance to see how well they meld into a cohesive fighting unit. Here's another hint: it could use some improvement! It turns out their newest member needs just a bit more practice with area attacks. We're sure he'll pick up on it quickly and everything will be fine down the road! What aerial maneuvers can Namee pull out when he actually has to fight? How does Blag shred skeletons? And just how badass are grave clerics? Very badass.

Episode 90- Sing Song Sword

Our team came upon a town that was a wreck. Pushing through the place Nock had some very bad skill checks. Surviving his traps they met a halfing scout named Shep and his wolf that looked hardy. Having similar goals to stop the magical desert they decided to join the party. So off they all went to find the dwarven ruins. Because the djinn's lamp there is the solution they are pursuing.

But it turns out finding this place is a difficult goal, until Violexx stumbles into a great big hole. There's streets and homes, full of dust and bone. It does seem she's stumbled into the right zone. But these skeletons've got hands that are grabby. While Nock and Shep stand up high being gabby. Turns out we're going to need a knowledge infusion to deal with major anatomy confusion. 

Will the team fight? Will they go up, down, left or right? Will they find a treasure that's sublime? Will Mke commit a heinous word crime? What situation will Nock find that is trying? Because it turns out Kyle is much better at rhyming!

Episode 89- Shepard’s Hook

Our adventurers have found themselves in an unnatural desert, searching for a way to stop it's rapid spread across the land. Upon meeting its unusual source, a djinn that looks to be wasting away, he tells them that he is causing this destruction as the result of a wish. To put a stop to the destruction, he directs them to a ruin deep in the desert where he says the wish was made. On their way there they come across the ruins of a town that appears to have been besieged. Desperate for a break from the monotony of trudging through the desolation, the party decides to investigate the town. 
 
How much will Nock regret being impatient with the party and pushing onward through the town? And will he regret it even more if he keeps doing it? What sort of grievous injury will Blag suffer by his own hand? Will a simple object he discovers be able to make everything better for him? And just how confused will Violexx get about, well, everything? One thing's for sure, this town is going to be a pain in Nock's ass!

Episode 88- Condescending a Horse

With the tournament complete and the winner crowned it's finally time for our party to venture out of Butt Mountain. However, since one of our adventurers won, they must first deal with the Giant King's pesky decree that the champion cannot leave. We have a feeling Namee can ferret out a way to get around that!

 

What will the next step be in the party's quest to cure the sickness wracking Namee's home? How awkward will it be when they realize Palino is still there? How hard will the party try to communicate with a horse? And what epic weapon name will our adventurers unearth in their travels? It's time to hit the road and hope it doesn't hit them back!

Episode 87-If I Die I’m Delicious

The final fight has come down to a showdown between Violexx and Namee. Namee goes for a full charm offensive while Violexx grits her teeth and tries to cut him down.
 
And then, something astounding happens. 
 
A journey unfolds. One that takes us into uncharted territory. That territory? The mindscape of one of our players, laid bare for all. Learn about the inner-workings of their thoughts in dealing with their opponent's wiles. Kayak down the stream that is their consciousness as they come to terms with the situation before them. 
 
How will the rest of the party react to this struggle, both in the ring and in the recording studio? Why would they go out of their way to attack banjo fans? Has Palino been standing there the whole time? And what onslaught will finally break one of the combatants? Put on a swimsuit because we're about to dive into some very deep waters!
