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?

Are you having fun listening to our shenanigans?  Is there something you’d like to share with us?  We have a Twitter account @WedNightGame where you can show your support or feedback.  Kaetlyn will now be taking over our Twitter handle and is excited to talk with you all.  Please head over and show your support!  We also often post our latest episodes on Reddit via user Panwall under r/rpg so if Twitter isn’t your thing, you can look for us there too.  We hope to hear from you all soon, and as always, have fun!

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.

Please, enjoy the show!

Lost Mines of Phandelver – Session 20 Side B

Hello Listeners!

This week is Episode 41, Session 20 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.

Remember how last week the players were on fire with jokes? This week the characters are just on fire.

Because Flame Skull.

This is their first major conflict with a spellcaster enemy. We’re not counting the joke of a slaughter that they committed against Glasstaff and the Maglubiyet goblin priest. Those guys were sub-level 3. Chump change. The Flame Skull counts as a 5th level spellcaster. That means 3rd levels spells; the unofficial non-“baby” spells. I’m talking about Fireball folks.

This might be the most tense fight they’ve had since the goblin ambush on the road all the way back in Episode 1 of this series… But not for the reason you’d think.

We discover, and are not surprised to find out, that Zombies are nothing to an Owlbear. We also discover that Uitzash is the true animal handler of the group.

Please, enjoy the show!

But also the characters decide to delve deeper into the mines. They deploy Linguine and Greg to scout ahead, form a plan on what to do next, and then plunge forward with that idea in hand!

This results in initiative being rolled.

I mean… this is Dungeons and Dragons after all.

Please, enjoy the show!

Big news about something that happens during this combat folks; showstopping puns are back!!!

Enough of them to put the POM up to 3, even!
