New thing this time!
The Abridged Version
We’ve added an abridged version of the episode, which eliminates all the combat dice-rolling wargamey bits. The full and abridged versions will live in the same feed and should otherwise be identical. There’s a chirp tone to indicate that a combat has been skipped over. Starting with Episode 16, we should verbally indicate as well.
Onto the Notes
Druid-barding — the Mearls-Meld — hirelings Jimmy & Timmy, Pip & Pop, Genevieve & Alistair — discussion of side treks — fight 40 orcs y/n — we change the hexmap scale — our next season — fire cultists — Forgotten Realms names need work — tracking orc captives — surprise — orcish syllabic naming conventions.
“Hand-holding twin albinos.”
“They polish continually.”
Next season of the podcast, Jim might DM Out of the Abyss, the new new WotC module.
From now on, when I roll random encounter checks, I’m going to roll to see what table I roll the encounters from: the low level table or the high level table.
Here’s how I’m going to do it:
- roll a d20
- if the roll is OVER the level of the highest level PC in the party, use the Early Travels (low level) table
- else, use the Later Travels (high level) table
