Their car has broken down and they end up being taken in by one of the locals. They have noticed a lack of holiday spirit in the town and speaking with this couple reveals that the mayor has banned Christmas. It is up to them to try and bring back Christmas to Pleasantdale!Read More

After their first meeting with Lord Elngard, the group is put up in a luxurious inn in Starrengeld, The Locket and Key. To make the most of their chance to relax and decompress, the group decides to have a bit of a personal banquette and a spa night. During the time at the spa, the party discovers a little more mystery surrounding one of its members, which creates more questions than it answers.
The next day, the party meets once again with Lord Elngard for lunch in the Solarium of Starrengeld. He once again thanks them for what they have done, and he further rewards them by giving each of them an item he felt matched the personalities he had seen of them the day before. He also gives them a padded box with a cache of healing potions, hoping it will help them in their fight against Grimfang.Read More
This session was after a long break away from the mics while Caitlin and I finished preparing for our wedding and got married.
In this episode, our adventurers meet Lord Elngard, the king of Starrengeld. They learn about the items they have been carrying with them ever since the kobold raid. Unfortunately, these items weren’t of cultural significance, but of strong personal significance to the king. After their meeting with the king, to offer his thanks, he boards them at Starrengeld’s finest inn, The Locket and Key, and gives them a generous tab. Though he would like to have lunch with them tomorrow, after he has had some time to process the information they have brought to him.Read More

The Guild of Surveyors acts as a library in Starrengeld and the party learns of a legend about a god and a white dragon. They also find a tablet that includes Doitean’s name on it.

The crew has to deal with the aftermath of Rem harpooning a giant seahorse and bringing it on board. Little did he, or the rest of the party know, these creatures are rarely seen by ships in the area. Though it was food for the ship, it comes with a bittersweet taste and a warning from The Whispering Winds’ boatswain. Rem feels little remorse while the rest of the party feels awful for what they have done. While he rides the high of his catch, Kenina tries to reach out and make amends with Tempest, while Ariel helps out the ship’s cooks prepare vegetables for the night meal.
During the meal, Rem works on serving the crew as much as they are willing to eat and excited talks about the thrill of the catch. Meanwhile Ariel and Kenina try to get through the meal without too much feeling, though Tempest had chosen not to eat. Before night sets over the ship, Rem runs into Gimble, a gnome from the guild who was on their previous adventure but had so far been hidden on the ship. He agrees not to give away Gimbles presence and eventually returns to his shared bunk room, where Ariel confronts him over his attitude.Read More
Our adventurers continue their journey at sea. They’re all a bit curious about the oddly bluish-green human, Tempest, they’ve seen aboard the ship and attempt to get to know her better. Kenina and Ariel, in an attempt to be helpful around the ship, ask for Tempest’s help in learning to tie knots, often with little success. Rem, trying to be helpful in his own way, takes up fishing with some borrowed gear on the boat. During one of the days at sea, Kenina decides to join Rem and learn a bit about fishing as well. Unfortunately, things don’t go well for her and she loses a pole overboard, but makes up for it by offering to help with the meal for the night. While cooking she meets a brother and sister whose village was overran by bandits and would like the group to look into it in the future. However, during the next day of fishing, they catch something unexpected.Read More

In the morning, Kenina discovers a wonderful beverage and they set off to find the Whispering Winds, the ship that the guild paid for their journey on.

Let’s have a peak behind the screen and chat about what’s going on with Adventures in Erylia.
My goal is to keep these short, but if you just want the bullet points, here’s what I’m going to talk about:
- Episode 1 of the Erylian Epic
- Upgrade to Hindenburg Journalist Pro
- World Building Wednesday -> World Anvil
- Moving hosts
This episode introduces our upcoming campaign, the Erylian Epic. Like the Mieveht Story, there was an arc of the campaign that took place before we got our current audio set up and improved the quality of our audio. This episode will introduce you to the characters in the Erylian Epic, go over a brief play by play of the previous arcs events, and end with the nightwatch that we recorded after finishing the arc (with our new audio set up as well).Read More
Our group of ragtag escape convicts have successfully completed a few jobs for Mr. Cassien Nailo, and been unfortunately informed that they must leave the city. As we finish a campaign, all of the players will get around the mics for a special bonus episode, the Nightwatch. During a Nightwatch episode, we recap the previous arcs events and there is an open conversation between the players and the Dungeon Master about things that may have been missed or overlooked. It also gives the players a chance to ask the DM why he may have made some of the decisions he made or how certain things fit into the story, or if they were completely made up on the spot.Read More
