As Mildred awakens from her slumber, our heroes will try to the find the source of her strange behavior while Blackee Green quickly cycles through the tower screens in search of the mysterious old man. Plus, we find out if Sir Richard indeed has the skills to perform the perfect cartwheel!

So EVERY time Sark spins that new die, the group can say they've been 'Rick-Roll'd'?

You guys freaking crack me up. I listen to this at work and I have to pause and take my headphones off frequently to get my chuckles under control so that I don't bust out laughing in the office. Can't wait for the next episode!

BEST EPISODE IN WEEKS!

so much mayhem, this is the shit that goes down when mildred's not there to keep the boys in line. can't wait for next week

best non game moment though was Ken being blindsided by Blaine's "dragging porn to his trash file" joke

Did the artist whose work was used on the character targeting die get credit in the episode? He has one post on the artwork forum, where he posted the art. Username empireparade. He has a deviantartpage as well, but I'm on my phone right now and can't pull it up.

UPDATE: empireparade is Colin James Harker. Here is his Nerd Poker piece on deviantart:

Yes he was credited at the beginning of the episode. It is indeed a very cool die.

Actually, I went back and listened to be sure, and Colin is not credited. Rick, the maker of the targeting die is mentioned, as he wrote the letter and sent the gift, but neither he nor the gang make mention of the art used, which is Colin's.

I agree with the positive response to this one, and also to the current storyline. For an episode with no fight, no chase, and no real baddies present this one didn’t lack for action. Amarth cracking the stone is going to be one of those memorable moments and I think would make for a fantastic drawing. I am digging the creepiness of their current location and foes, this is one of my favorite storylines of the campaign so far. I love how freaky the paintings and that old wizard knowingly letting them attack him from afar is, but I’m still not really getting the gist of the evirons from episode to episode.


Just to clear up: is the old man in the adjacent room or at least what resembles the adjacent room? Or can he only be seen by whoever’s looking through a lens? Is the lens like a periscope or is it like a TV Screen? All the collectors they know are after them, how are they moving towards them?

i was kinda of confused too but i think sark cleared some shit up at the end of the episode, i got the impression that the other viewer room and probably the other crystal room are at the opposite end of the tower. like both ends have same set up and the old dude is in the other crystal room. i think the viewers are more like a periscope but with some sorcery mixed in, cause like i still don't understand how they work if they all have paintings hanging in front of them. theres gotta be some magic shit going on

i was also thinking, they should see if they can clog up those leaking soul pipes in the crystal room some how maybe it'll cause a catastrophic pressure build up and blow that whole end up.

My mistake. I'm thought Rick drew them as well. They probably do too.




Oh and Blaine's porn joke was hilarious.

Sark-

You can use Athletics checks for breaking down doors, shattering crystals and shit like that. I know you're using a bastardized version of 4e, but it does cover stuff like that.

Did anyone else think it somewhat odd, how strongly Sir Richard reacted to the challenge? I have a theory... ;)

Oh man, Mildred not being an active member of the group really throws the whole party a little out of whack.
...
I hope she snaps out of it soon, she's my favourite.

Is anyone else having trouble downloading this episode? I've tried on two different computers and on my Droid. It just redirects me to a Soundcloud page that says the episode was not found.
