Hope you had a chance to enjoy our four episode adventure The Assassin in Dayo Gorge. That was a bit of a warm up to a larger story that is currently being released over at The Iron Archives.
The new story is called The Right Thing. This time the adventure takes to a high seas as a new group of heroes attempts to unravel the mysteries of the Brashen Isles. The party is a bit bigger for this series of adventures with six players and DJ our Dungeon Master weaving the story. You may recognize a few voices from The Assassin in Dayo Gorge if you listen close.
These sessions are a bit longer with each episode clocking in at a little over three hours. This is giving our characters a bit more time to breathe. In addition, DJ is editing these a bit differently. Our first adventure was pretty curated from an editing point of view. This new story is a bit more freestyle, so you'll hear us joking around a bit more, hear some of the player commentary as well as the character actions. It should sound a bit more like you hanging out at the table with us enjoying the game.
The events in this story happen about 144 years after the events in The Assassin in Dayo Gorge. So the world has changed quite a bit since then. This new set of characters are pretty diverse and interesting, and it has made for some very amusing moments so far.
What you can expect in the first few episodes:
- Fearsome undead horrors
- The miraculous uses for the Grease spell
- "The Winning Smile" - trademark pending
- Tavern brawling aboard ship
- A duel with a Silver Bow
- Moral dilemmas
- Dangerous new rules for critical hits - and what they cost a character
So far this adventure is a blast, and we are having a good time with the characters and the adventures DJ has cooked up for us. Looks like the situation in the Isles is bit more complicated than we first understood, and yeah, our characters are getting in over their heads. So if this sounds like fun to you, stop on by and give it a listen.
