Having secured a way home, the party has the rest of the day to explore more of The Midnight Carnival. Tempest is the first to find some games to play, but is quick to try to get the other to play. Meanwhile, Rem takes some time to go through his new gift from Ariel. As everyone gets back together they decide to see what has set up inside of the arena now that the main event has passed.

DMs Guild – While coming up with the inspiration behind the Midnight Carnival, I turned to the DMs Guild for some help with getting ideas and coming up with things to keep the party interested. Two specific supplements that I used were Festivals, Feasts, and Fairs by Ashley May as well as Taverns, Inns, and Taprooms by JB Little. These helped me speed up the process and handle mechanics for crafting the shops, food, and events that the party experienced while visiting the Midnight Carnival and even more of their influence is shown in our next episode.
Patreon – A HUGE shout out to our Guild Members over on Patreon. Thanks to their support we have been able to start getting artwork commissioned on a more regular basis. We were able to commission art for Fioch, the legendary greataxe from before the podcast earlier last year and by the end of the year we were able to commission Lobhadh, a pair of legendary pair of twin daggers from the same series.
This episode features a promo from Ghosts on a Train, and olde timey themed actual play podcast using the game Ghost Lines to tell their stories.

During our live sessions we use Syrinscape to have ambience at the table without all of the work that goes into editing the soundscapes that are part of our released episodes. They have a great mixer that we run through our set up while we record to help build the scene during our sessions and for our Discord audience. If you’re interested in trying out Syrinscape for yourself, they have provided us with a link to a 30 day free trial.
