Icosahedrophilia Podcast, Episode 178: The Horror from the Hills, Part 7

The Icosahedrophilia podcast logo, featuring a big blue d20Adventure fans, we’ve reached the final episode of “The Horror from the Hills!” In our last episode, our heroes escorted some rescued villagers back to town, but the local raja was revealed to be a treacherous rakshasa who tried to renege on his deal with the PCs! The adventurers were therefore reduced to fighting to obtain a sliver of the godslayer shard. The battle to obtain the sliver concludes in this episode—but not all of the PCs will make it out alive! Please listen now or subscribe via iTunesZune, or plain old RSS!

By the way, I’m sorry that I failed to publish this episode last Wednesday, as scheduled. The main distraction was setting up a new independent game company. Learn all about it on the Novetus Games website!

This episode features the following segments:

  1. Ah, I’ve been eagerly anticipating the follow-up. Although I’m quite worried who’s going to shuffle off their mortal coil.

    Also, I’ve shared your Novetus link around my crowd, since languages are my other main interest. Hopefully you’ll be hearing from them too (look out for Celts…).
