150 – AFTER DARK – The Pareto Principle But Dungeons and Dragons

We put out an episode of AFTER DARK for the general audience. Usually you have to be a patron to get in on this. But, enjoy, normie listeners. We give/take session feedback, complain about each other, and talk about game design, scene controvery, and social media hell. Also, anime, TV, movie, and videogame recommendations.

149 – re:play Dungeon Academy 9

Beard ASMR & Blood Pools. Got projector armbands. Got Patroclus to come with. Explored side paths then found a cave complex beneath the hill off the path. Found a smoky spirit of a student named Antolius. Then entered a labyrinth where they fought kobolds and giant albino lizards. Saggitarius broke through the kobold barricades, cut one down, then was rekt. Left off in dungeon.

148 – Blood Pools

We had an off week this time; so, instead of a typical episode, here’s a crosspost from Daniel’s podcast, Detect Magic, in which he talks about a system he’s going to be using in the upcoming Dungeon Academy actual play episodes. 

Blood Pools is a system for modeling how characters get better at fighting particular monsters (and in general) that’s separate from the XP system.

Suspicion over the murder of Secundus spreads among the faculty. Luna’s romance gets complicated. Luna and Tacitus study wand creation. And the rest of the party sneak into the sewers beneath the dorm and find some unexpected things.

144 – re:play Dungeon Academy 5

Back in that Dungeon Academy. What happens in this ep:

  • Espying a spider-man
  • resurrecting a skeletal smith
  • speaking with the spider-man
  • a dead alchemist holds a magic wand and magic hat and magic robes (+1 hp, help you hide against the night sky)
  • held up by bandits
  • the mechanical benefits of romance

Iambic tetrameter flavor text of the entrance to the woods:

Beyond the mossed and tumbled walls, the air convolves with inky swirls. Beneath the moons dance shimmering wisps. But on the road, beneath the looming trees, the night is dark and clear.
