The party makes good time through the next leg of their trek. Along the way they take a moment to observe some of the local wildlife and even stop to smell the flowers.
Have you missed our play-through of Tomb of Annihilation so far? Or maybe you thought we were too far into the adventure to jump on board? Then we have some good news for you! The Inner Circle had been away from the game table for quite a while and REALLY needed a refresher on all the events so far. They re-cap the entire story (as much as they remember anyway) before the party strikes off once again into the wilderness in search of the lost city of Omu!
The party moves into the swamp and finds...a flying mountain! The strange lady who lives there gives them some direction, but no one can agree if she can be trusted!
Finally, the party breaks through the jungle! However, the new terrain proves just as unwelcoming and a pitched battle breaks out when the party is ambushed by savage frog-people!
The RWU crew met up at Tidewater Comicon 2018 to put on one of their 'LIVE!' panel events! Stalwart GM Keir Lyles leads the players through a brief scenario using West End Games' Star Wars: The Role-Playing Game. Will The Force be with them or will the audience prove even more powerful? Find out!
The party's search through the mysterious and deadly jungle continues, but the experience they are gaining starts to pay off!
A "second wave" of heroes sets out to complete the mission with markedly more success than the first.
Chris had to leave before we recorded this one, but his character, "Tam" is still around! He's played this time by Brian's wife (and FIRST TIME RPG-er!), Rebecca! The party and their guide finally enter the jungle and immediately begin to wonder if they are as prepared as they believed.
The party starts looking for a guide to take them into the jungle, but it proves to be a more difficult choice than they imagined!
After learning a bit about their new and exotic surroundings, the party is off to the races! (Literally!)
The RWU Inner Circle has decided to embrace the "mainstream" D&D universe and play through the infamous Tomb of Annihilation! A new group of freshly minted characters sets out on a quest to help find a cure for a sick friend. To do so they must travel to a beautiful and deadly land and navigate it's terrors with little to no idea what they are looking for!
In the SUPER-SIZED final episode of this adventure the Cthulhu-ists face not one, but TWO eldritch horrors before finding themselves stranded in a strange new place! Our Call of Cthulhu campaign WILL continue in future episodes, but WHICH of the crew, if any, will remain?
Picking up EXACTLY where the last episode left off the Cthulhu-ists drive out to a mysterious, abandoned church that may hold vital clues to Julian's plan. Once inside they find more than they bargained for, including some ominous references to a powerful cult that they have encountered before!
In this week's episode* the fight is on between the Cthulhu-ists and a supernatural assassin (formerly a very nice old lady)! As usual, things get worse before they get better as they prove if they have what it takes to survive!
*(This episode is edited from a much longer recording. As such it ends somewhat abruptly, but rest assured that it is at a logical point in the story AND next week's episode will pick up exactly where this one leaves off!)
After the customary re-cap Brian starts doing some real life math and comes up a few killers short. Olympia reaches out to one of these "missing" people and finds a new connection to Julian Casey! She arranges a meeting with this new contact only to arrive and realize too late that they have been duped!
While it has only been one week for us in the "real world" it has been one YEAR since our players* last gathered to complete this supernatural quest. As can be expected there is A LOT of catching up to do, but once that's done the adventure picks up EXACTLY where it left off with Kaz and Andrew about to use their expertise to research the life and times of Juilan Casey!
*(We accidentally used the wrong intro on this episode! Nikole Jones could not join us for this session as our psychic 'Liliana', BUT playing her place is veteran RWU member Quinn Beecroft as flamboyant occult librarian 'Franklin' and a new player, Cheryl Romine as Forest Ranger/Paranormal Researcher 'Fawn')
Adrian summons the team (now called The Cthulhu-ists) and together they move down the newly discovered tunnel. What they find in the dark may be a dire warning of what's to come!
First, we catch up with Liliana and Andrew at the police station where Liliana picks up some strange vibes when she examines their evidence. Afterward Olympia*, Kaz, and Adrian investigate the burned out hospital where their one solid lead was last seen! What is it with boilers and basements?
*(One of Olympia's character traits is to sing hymns to herself when under stress. This is a stressful bit of the adventure for her.)
After visiting the crime scene, The Cthulhu Crew starts tracking down the few leads they have. Liliana and Andrew go to review forensic evidence while Olympia, Kaz and Adrian try to find an old "acquaintance".
The Cthulhu Crew returns! After the bizarre happenings in New Mexico, (most of) the team is taking some time off. However, when they receive another call from the Honest Slate their leisure time is cut short and they are summoned to Boston, Mass. in pursuit of a killer!
File this episode under “better late than never”! Back on December 9th the RWU crew recorded their panel called 'FROST FIGHT!' during VA Comicon's ( www.vacomicon.com ) winter show. Unfortunately, due to circumstances beyond our control we had to delay releasing the episode until...NOW! So, although it's a little late remember, it's the thought that counts! Enjoy!
THIS is the final chapter of The Order's current adventure! Picking up exactly where last week's episode left off they begin by finding out WHO is "being a prick" at the bottom of the well! Have they finally located Virgil? Find out here!
After a bit of trouble The Order finally reaches the bottom of the hole and discovers a shocking secret!
(This is the first of a TWO PART episode edited from a much longer recording. As such it ends somewhat abruptly, but have no fear! Part II will continue next week from exactly where this leaves off!)
The party returns to Hobbston armed with new information then makes the always fateful decision to split up! Both groups run afoul of different dangers, only to end up in the same place!
