Episode 83- Uphill Battle

Having spent some time in Namee's gnomish hometown, it's clear that it isn't faring well. A mysterious illness has befallen it's citizens and plants, worsening a food shortage that is compounded by the neighboring giants. They've been using their big grabby hands to take all they can get from the gnomes. It is clear something needs to be done. And since the new party dynamic seems to be genuine interest in helping people, they quickly take on the task.

 
With Nock unsuccessful in encouraging the plants to fight off the disease, our party decides to tackle what should be the easier of the two problems, the giants that are stealing much of the gnomes' remaining food. But the climb up the mountain is fraught with its own challenges. The least of which is a distinct lack of maturity brought on by a slip of the DM's tongue! 

It's a party member avalanche as our team attempts to ascend to the peak! Will they even make it to the top? Will they at least have some fun on the way? It's time for some high stakes adventure!

Episode 82- Little Gnome Fact

Here at the Episode Description Department, we pride ourselves on our ability to, well, describe things. Specifically, events within an episode. This one has us stumped though, as we find ourselves confronted with something we've never seen before. It is so mind-boggling that attempts at description elude us. For in this episode, the players mostly talk to one another in character. And they do it a lot. 

We haven't done the math, but it feels like they talk to each other in character more than they do out of character. Flabbergasting we know. They all talk about their pasts. Seriously, each of them. In a conversational format! It feels like a whole new game. Some sort of talking to each other in character game. No, that doesn't flow well. Discussion between imaginary people game? There has to be a better term for that. Talk playing game? We're open to suggestions here. 

Normally this is the part where we ask vaguely foreshadowy questions like will "Namee do something crazy". But honestly it feels like we never got the momentum going to get there. You might as well just listen to it already because we're no good to you here.

Episode 81- Maker of Nom Noms

Blag and Namee have ventured into the portal to journey to Namee's hometown at the behest of the wizard Wanzledorf. Along the way they survived more than one ambush from frog-like creatures! Passing through a small village in the middle of a great valley they met Monadnock, a firbolg with a commanding presence and a deep connection to nature. It turns out he is the same firbolg who founded the Onyx Shields, and has been back among his people serving as a protector since leaving that group. He informs them that he has read the signs in nature and knew that he would be called upon soon to defend the land. After just a bit of confusion as to what happened to his old friend Derand, he is ready to venture forth and joins the party, seeing their meeting as being fated. 

Arriving at the gonimsh settlement of FizzyWhizzalPop they came across a tiefling woman insisting to a guard that she was there to help them. Something she is going to quickly get to prove when the arm of a giant reaches into the cave entrance and grabs a gnome, yelling "nom noms"! Which of these new benevolent characters will be the first to rush out to their aid? And just who is this mysterious tiefling? One thing's for sure, she's got such a cool accent!

Episode 80- Season 2- New Friends

A new adventure begins! Having just successfully saved the world from the machinations of an evil mind flayer (we're surprised they pulled it off too), the party has entered a new era. Some might call it a new season in their lives. Maybe a second season? We're still workshopping that. Kort has gone off to help rebuild his former thieves guild. And Rathborn has taken up a position as Ambassador for the Red Halls, the new home of the Onyx Shields organization. Wasn't he trying to kill them when we started? Talk about character development!

Namee and Blagriland had just said farewell to their former companions when conveniently a portal opened before them, out of which came a gnome wizard who had come to summon Namee home. It seems Namee's home is in danger, and that he is needed, because apparently he's royalty. News to us too! That little guy is full of surprises!

So it's off on a new quest! What dangers await the two friends on the other side of the portal? What new friends will they meet on their travels to Namee's home? How completely off the rails will one of those meetings go? And how big of an ego will the party have from having just saved the world? Actually, nothing there. It's kind of surprising actually. Not even much in the way of celebratory high fives. But then again, they do get distracted easily. Or they just forgot. Maybe if they do it again it'll sink in. Let's see what happens on the road to FizzyWhizzalPop! That's the name of Namee's home. Anyway, let's go already!
