Are you ready to follow the crew of the Broken Promise deeper into Torog’s torture den? If so, please listen now to episode 149 of the Icosahedrophilia podcast, or subscribe via iTunes, Zune, or plain old RSS. In our previous episode, our heroes stumbled upon a group of mind flayer torturers; in this episode, our heroes get their first look at the mind flayers’ victim, as the fighting spills over into another room of the torture den.
This episode features the following segments:
Wayne Cole explains why he’s the Gamerati, and I call for your initiative roll.
The Staging Area
I briefly summarize the campaign backstory (referring listeners to the “Story Thus Far” recap episode for a more detailed history of the campaign). I also summarize our previous adventure, “A Sort of Homecoming,” and parts 1–5 of “Kiss of the Spider-Woman.”
The Weather Report
Our heroes get their first look at the mind flayers’ victim, as the fighting spills over into another room of the torture den.
The Prop Shop
I remind you of the terrain tiles that I used to create the entry halls as well as the inner torture den. These tiles came from the following SkeletonKey Games sets:
- Master Tiles 0: Infinite Chamber (free product)
- Master Tiles 1: Vampire Den
- Master Tiles 2: Perilous Passages
- 2e Adventure Tiles: Dungeon Expansion 1
I talk a little bit about the diminishment of Lolth’s boon, and offer a free enrollment in Johnn Four’s and Tony Medeiros’s Faster RPG Combat course to the first person (other than the cast and crew of the podcast!) who posts here with the true explanation for why Lolth’s boon is fading away. In addition, all listeners have until April 7, 2012 to enroll in the Faster Combat course at a 25% discount by e-mailing Johnn Four and telling him that you heard about this offer on the Icosahedrophilia podcast! Finally, I introduce the Vorpal Network’s new sponsor for this quarter, Continue magazine. If it’s a game, Continue covers it!
