156 – Mothership – Finale of Dead Planet

We finish our run of our first proper sci-fi game, Mothership. Spoilers for the official module Dead Planet follow. Listen as it is revealed that Daniel still doesn’t know how space works and knows one and only one metric system equivalence. Does the party escape the dead planet or spectacularly TPK? Do we get the rules half right? Just click, nay, SMASH that play button and find out, dear listener.

Note that we did Stress totally wrong. The default Stress gained is 1, not 1d10. Not sure where Daniel got that …

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.
