Ko-Fi?!

Hello Listeners!

The Wednesday Night Crew would like to bring you a better listening experience and a better website. This would require better recording equipment and more utility from our webpage. Ultimately, that means a greater financial investment than any one in our group can currently shoulder. So, in order to make that more of a reality…

We set up a Ko-Fi!

https://ko-fi.com/wednesdaynightgame

With your guys help, we can make the podcast better than ever!

Once we’ve gotten the recording quality where we’ve always wanted it to be and the website where we’ve come to realize it really needs to get to, we can start doing other things… But we’ll keep those under wraps for now. We’ll need to keep any goals realistic for the time being.

Thank you so much for your support in advance! You guys rock!

Enjoying the Show?

Lost Mines of Phandelver – Session 26 Side B

Hello Listeners!

Before we get to the episode synopsis, I wanted to mention here that starting next week The Wednesday Night Crew will be taking a break for the holidays. There’s a similarly brief announcement in the episode as well, but it felt weird not mentioning it in writing here.

Happy holidays to all of our listeners out there! We wish you good health and safety.

Now, on to the episode announcement!

This week is Episode 53, Session 26 Side B, for the Lost Mines of Phandelver, the beginners adventure presented in the Dungeons and Dragons Starter Set.

You’ll hear Alex play Hal, a level 4 Bard. Kaetlyn plays Uitzash, a level 4 Warlock in service to Dendar. Kolton is introducing Krask, a level 4 Lizardfolk Paladin. And Matt plays a level 4 Grung Wizard named Rwrarp (pronounced like a frog noise). Colin was DM’ing this game. We are using the Milestone leveling variant in this adventure.

In today’s episode, you’ll hear our characters play some very classic D&D. They use a monster’s nature to their advantage and then take another completely by surprise! Consequences result, as they always do in this game. Give a listen and see what their brilliant plans were!

Please, enjoy the show!

Lost Mines of Phandelver – Session 25 Side B

Hello Listeners!

This week is Episode 51, Session 25 Side B, for the Lost Mines of Phandelver, the beginners adventure presented in the Dungeons and Dragons Starter Set.

You’ll hear Alex play Hal, a level 4 Bard. Kaetlyn plays Uitzash, a level 4 Warlock in service to Dendar. Kolton is introducing Krask, a level 4 Lizardfolk Paladin. And Matt plays a level 4 Grung Wizard named Rwrarp (pronounced like a frog noise). Colin was DM’ing this game. We are using the Milestone leveling variant in this adventure.

In today’s episode we have a pretty tense series of rounds where Krask is unconscious and being eaten by ghouls. The party spends most of their time trying to figure out how to save the poor dying paladin but most of their plans are thwarted by the Action Economy. His rescue eventually comes in the form of an Owlbear. Not a statement typically applicable to most of my prior D&D games.

One big pun pushes us up to level 2

Lost Mines of Phandelver – Session 25 Side A

Hello Listeners!

This week is Episode 50, Session 25 Side A, for the Lost Mines of Phandelver, the beginners adventure presented in the Dungeons and Dragons Starter Set.

You’ll hear Alex play Hal, a level 4 Bard. Kaetlyn plays Uitzash, a level 4 Warlock in service to Dendar. Kolton is introducing Krask, a level 4 Lizardfolk Paladin. And Matt plays a level 4 Grung Wizard named Rwrarp (pronounced like a frog noise). Colin was DM’ing this game. We are using the Milestone leveling variant in this adventure.

In today’s episode, the players decide that it’s time to finish what they started with those ghouls they saw tear up their enemies a few episodes back after they defeated the Flame Skull. And by “finish what they started,” I mean “go in there for the very first time since they saw what happened with the Bugbears who went in there and Greg scouted it out for them.”

They head in there with a decent plan and a reckless attitude. Of course, Krask gets into trouble immediately.

What else would we expect from this group though, right?

Couple good puns in there, so we’ll give them the “2” this time.

Please, enjoy the show!

Lost Mines of Phandelver – Session 24 Side B

Hello Listeners!

This week is Episode 48, Session 24 Side A, for the Lost Mines of Phandelver, the beginners adventure presented in the Dungeons and Dragons Starter Set.

You’ll hear Alex play Hal, a level 4 Bard. Kaetlyn plays Uitzash, a level 4 Warlock in service to Dendar. Kolton is introducing Krask, a level 4 Lizardfolk Paladin. And Matt plays a level 4 Grung Wizard named Rwrarp (pronounced like a frog noise). Colin was DM’ing this game. We are using the Milestone leveling variant in this adventure.

In today’s adventure, the players rescue the last surviving Rockseeker!

Colin considered this a major accomplishment since he was pretty sure they were going to miss this tiny, locked, side room in the dungeon. Not enough of an accomplishment to let the players level-up of course, they still have a lot of this dungeon to clear after all. The deal they end up cutting with the dwarven entrepreneur was also a stroke of genius on their part, so we can chalk this social encounter up as a win for them.

Got at least 1 pun in there this week, so we’re giving them an uptick on the ‘Meter!

Please, enjoy the show!

Lost Mines of Phandelver – Session 24 Side A

Hello Listeners!

This week is Episode 48, Session 24 Side A, for the Lost Mines of Phandelver, the beginners adventure presented in the Dungeons and Dragons Starter Set.

So there’s a fair amount of crosstalk in this episode. We’d been on hiatus for a while so we were excited to see each other and hang out again. I apologize for the sound quality and our lack of professionalism. But we did have a lot of fun, which I’ll never apologize for.

In this episode, the characters loot the bodies of their fallen foes and we have a lot of tangential thoughts and conversations. But there’s a little character building, a little investigation, and some discussion about the world as well.

Please, enjoy the show!

Lost Mines of Phandelver – Session 23 Side A

Hello Listeners!

This week is Episode 46, Session 23 Side A, for the Lost Mines of Phandelver, the beginners adventure presented in the Dungeons and Dragons Starter Set.

You’ll hear Alex play Hal, a level 4 Bard. Kaetlyn plays Uitzash, a level 4 Warlock in service to Dendar. Kolton is introducing Krask, a level 4 Lizardfolk Paladin. And Matt plays a level 4 Grung Wizard named Rwrarp (pronounced like a frog noise). Colin was DM’ing this game. We are using the Milestone leveling variant in this adventure.

In this episode, the adventurers, less than stealthy due to a loudly whispered argument and an untimely sneeze, burst into a columned chamber with a giant dwarf statue and a couple bugbears. This generates a little confusion for the party as they were pretty sure that there was a drow in here at the end of last session. They rush in there and… the situation changes rapidly from there.

After their encounter with Mormesk, the characters finally go and investigate the source of the booming sound. What they discover, is truly underwhelming.

The eventually decide that it’s time to do something about the creatures in this cave once and for all, because this is bullshit.

In this week’s adventure, the characters start off by camping and having a pretty low key, but potentially frustrating, social encounter with The Guardian. Afterwards, they move on to the second building in this open cave chamber and discover a second, and differently annoying, guardian in the other structure.
