(Deathd4) Episode 179: H.4 – Discoveries & Dryad

dryad-1

We lost three episodes since Episode 178 due to technical issues so this episode starts as a recap and then moves forward as the party continues their exploration of Sezzur’s vault. Zanatari also confirms that she has poor translation ability.

(Deathd4) Episode Arc Summary

Loremaster-Retelling

(Tinzien) Following a recent guest appearance on a D&D podcast, I was ask the question as to where a new listener could jump into the pile of episodes without having to start back on episode 1.

This lead me to write up a longer than intended post where I outlined a rough episode guide to each of the major story archs through episode 168. I’m including it here for the sake of posterity.

===

[Finding a place for someone to begin other than episode 1] is sort of like finding a spot for someone who is going to be variably late to a Lord of the Rings movie marathon – you’ll get an idea of the characters and go from there but there might be a couple “huhs” in there. Not a problem though. I’d suggest at least listing to the recap episodes which are scattered in the first 100 episodes (and listed clearly as such) if you start higher on.

I’m a sucker for the holiday episodes which are totally out of cannon but a lot of fun.
– Episode 87 is a take on the classic Grinch who Stole Christmas story mixed with Dr. Who
– Episode 102 is an April Fool’s Day story harkening back to the old 1964 Scooby Doo cartoon.
– Episode 130 is an action filled Christmas special adventure…. on a train… with fisticuffs…
– Episode 160 is a video only episode. Don’t ignore the stories of children.

Episode 41 – 43: The party first encounters the Drow in a big way, we find out one of the cast is a closet poet and also a creative use of spiders. *coughs*

Episode 53:  I imitate one of the player’s voices that he uses for his character in order to have said character meet his past or present self.

Episode 64: An emotional episode that showed that just because you see Monster X, does not always mean it’s a monster.

Episode 69 – 70: The Slurp Slurp stories which set up towards the Trial arc as well as my take on The Seven Pillared Hall.

Episode 98 – 99: Getting treasure is not always easy. A party conflict set of episodes.

Episode 103 – 108: Want to see what a perhaps “sentient” Ioun stone can do to a Drow city?

Episode 110 – 116: The Trial of the Chained God series mentioned in the DMBlock episode.

Episode 118 – 119: What happens if the party wakes up in different bodies?

Episode 126 – 131: Death-knights…..

Episode 132 – 133: The party meets The Green Dragon Empress for the first time.

Episode 140: The party has to make up stories that would be find in the mental hive mind history of the Kalashtar (Zanatari the battle cleric’s race)

Episode 143 – 145: Being awesome and having a town are cool, but sometimes you get forced into the role of playing Mayor or a parent to what you have wrought.

Episode 146 – 147 AND 156: Spooky episodes involving charmed or murderous animals. The ending was delayed until 156 due to some other stuff happening.

Episode 148 – 154: The Kalashtar story arc. A very complex storyline and an errand that I thought would take 20 minutes of game time but turned into 7 episodes.

Episode 155: The party encounters something that a future version of one of the party might have created.

Episode 158 onward : Current story arch and some stuff involving a lizardman outpost and a possibly cursed or possessed box. Leads into the jailbreak stuff, etc.



(Deathd4) Episode 168: H.4 – Tremors & Turbulence

Rock-Worm

The party continues to deal with both the onslaught of giant worms driven to the surface by the conflict at the jail. Mydthryn somewhat continues to learn how to fly and Karrul learns that flesh is weak in his mighty grasp. There is even a rumor going around that Zanatari’s deity is present!
