THE CROSSOVER ONLY I INSISTED ON IS HERE. 8 players, 1 DM. Home BRWD Back on the Prime Material? BAAR Crawl dealing with cultists of Vecna?! (Here's a secret: you suck, Vecna.) The parties must deal with an unhelpful dwarf in an effort to take his dagger to a library...Why does a dagger need to go to a library? Don't worry about it. Some totally not gross friends are made. And in the library, an imposing figure awaits.
Episode 12: Take Me Home
Harkon is defeated! But wait, no he’s not! The party kills one Harkon, throws another out a window, and then disappears in mist one at a time! Everyone passes through an in-between space, where they find a lot of emotions before going back to where they belong: together. Reunited, they head to Neverwinter, where they locate Ank’s sister, who is a proper lady. But what’s this? Her adoptive parent, Ole Wyrm, seems to have a new quest! Wonder how this one is gonna play out.
Episode 11: Bad Dogs
Our heroes – and Miller Thyme – arrive in Melodine, faced with a very unhappy Lady Akriel. She demands they hand over the crown, they lie heroically to pretend they don’t have it, and then Harkon shows up and things continue to not go well. They make it into the wizard’s tower, Miller Thyme slightly after the rest of them, then start barricading things. The book is located and Gark starts the ritual while they are besieged on all sides. Harkon makes his way through their barricade, but the party holds him in a stunlock below! How long can they keep this up?! Miller Thyme will never know, because he fades out just as the episode ends!
Episode 10: Wish You Were Here
The party runs in the opposite direction of Harkon and ends up at the bottom of the canyon with a man named Miller Thyme. Narrowly avoiding a few encounters with wolves as Harkon is delayed by disembodied hands and a pissed off mourner with a gun, they escape into the woods. They send Smiley and Ornery to fetch a cleric that can help them use the crown, and they return with Gark, who agrees to help them, but first they’ve got to find a specific book, because of course they do.
Episode 9: Lost Souls
Entangle does not adequately ensnare Rodaga, and so our heroes must fight and defeat her. Chava dons the crown for safekeeping, and they decide that the side of a canyon full of disembodied hands is a good place to take a long rest, which is interrupted when Smiley returns and attacks! Several important revelations later, they decide to leave the tomb and use the crown for themselves, but just as they reach the entrance they hear a familiar, ominous voice, and they know that Harkon is waiting above.
Episode 8: Same Old Fears
Outside of the tomb, Berry is whisked away by her patron on important business elsewhere, leaving our party to face a horde of skelly-mans on their own before rushing into the tomb. Inside they meet a Goblyn named I Think I Did, get molested by a bunch of disembodied hands, and perform uncomfortable blood magic to open a moody door. At the end they find themselves face to a face with the beautiful Rodaga, wearing the very crown they need. Our heroes opt for flattery to lull her into complacency before Granny makes the risky decision to cast Entangle. And that’s where we end! Cliffhanger!! Andrew, why?!!!
Episode 7: Strangers in the Mist
Our heroes head to the tomb where their prize awaits. Along the way, they encounter a sad household mourning the loss of their kin and have a run-in with Harkon that makes him seem a great deal less charming than he’d been the first time. The talk their way through both scenarios before returning to the trail to find themselves in front of an ominous tomb. Why is everything in Kartakass so ominous?!
Episode 6: Queen Without a Crown
The party follows Chava’s lead and heads towards town. On their way they encounter some wolves in the woods, but Granny has exactly no time for their BS and sends them on their way. They leave the woods and meet the glamorous Lady Akriel and almost get in a barfight with a mouthy tiefling. Akriel tells them she can get them home if they get her a fancy crown, and our party agrees because they’d probably agree to do anything if it meant getting them the hell out of Kartakass.
Episode 5: This Old House
The party encounters a new friend named Chava! Together they work their way through the mayor’s manor and run into Yuri, who does not have all his ducks in a row – probably from all the paint he keeps eating. They confer with him in his ceiling-based office and confirm their suspicions about the plant-monster coming from the rock. They also discover that the rock itself might be dangerous, so they haul ass across town to save the guards they’d handed it to. They get the rock and use a completely unimportant sword to destroy all remnants of the space dangers!
Episode 4: Pod People
“Hardened” from their time behind bars, our party flees into the woods, where they’re attacked by a giant plant that’s probably normal (it’s not). They defeat their foe and discover that it had grown out of a rock that had fallen from space, and inside the plant pods they find the hearts of the townspeople that had attacked them. Our heroes can’t agree on what to do with this information, and an argument ensues that results in Smiley leaving the party and the rest of them coming to a begrudging plan to report what happened. They return and speak with the captain of the guards and hand over the space rock, then are given leave to finish their investigation.
