Also, loved the "I aint afraid of no ghost" which nobody seemed to catch.

This episode really flew by. I'm so glad this is one of my regular podcasts. With other ones I can save them up and marathon them, but I have to listen to this one the day it comes out. SO GOOD!

Screwing with the players is one of the greatest joys of running a role playing game.

I enjoy Sark's DMing so much iin that he understands when there's the briefest of lulls that they're all weighing what to do or how to do it, and he'll nudge them with "You can either..." but then he mixes it up on them and gives them false leads like the elevator preparation misdirect. Or when Brian asks if they could swim and SARK replies (paraphrasing) "Sure you could try that...". I'm sitting there listening and thinking "he's hoping they do that just so he can fuck them up".
Bartho Shett was exceptionally snorey this episode. I'd noticed it before this episode, when the original breathing complaints came in, but I didn't say anything because it didn't get too bad. This episode was the opposite. There were heavy gargle-snore moments throughout this one that I just couldn't ignore. Maybe Blackey Green could do a CPAP Machine advert for some swag?
EDITED TO ADD: Awesome things that got lost in this one: "I ain't afriad of no ghost" , Brian the avowed metal head going "6 minutes..." from the old Doug E. Fresh classig hip-hop song "The Show"

Sometimes I too find myself thinking "Just go, assholes! We've only got an hour here!". But to be fair, I think the current setting is probably a different picture in everyone's mind, and they have been in a "keep moving or die" situation in pretty much every episode before and since the Elder's dome.
I really hope they eventually find themselves on a peaceful dirt road in a forest with a sign that says "Town 30 miles this way -->", and then just spend an episode in character leisurely walking along and telling each other their background stories. It's easy to forget that these people really still don't know anything about one another. I would love that and I bet it'd be fucking hilarious, we (and they) would get to experience more of Bart's rich douchbaggedness and I can definitely see moron Amarth picking the wrong berries and having emergency shits for half of the hike.
Love this friggin' show.
