Episode 30: The Conclusion

dcc_rpg_cover_smallThe Conclusion’ is the 30th episode of a Dungeon Crawl Classics RPG actual play podcast. Additional information can be found at http://irontavern.com/podcast.

Session Synopsis

With a cursory attack on the Temple through the sewers the real assault begins to form from the ocean. The skies darken over the ocean as large thunderheads build, lightning arcing across the western sky as the rains begin to fall upon the Great City. An explosion rocks the Temple of the Moon, sending the companions to the fallen Cthulhu temple where they learn it has been rebuilding in the rift caused by Tsanth’s last visit. The waves in the seas grow taller as an avatar of Cthulhu steps forth from the sea wreaking havoc upon the city. Can the party stop the new threat and save the city?

Note: The end of this one seems a bit abrupt, there wasn’t a great spot to transition to the closing music, so it is a bit awkward. Questions about the actual play campaign? Post in the comments and I will work up a final closing post if there is interest.

DCC RPG Actual Play Podcast Lives

DCC RPG Rulebook Cover w-HeadphonesThe most frequently asked question I get at The Iron Tavern is whether I am going to finish releasing the remaining sessions of the Dungeon Crawl Classics RPG Actual Play with Satan’s Glee Club. Embarrassingly the last release was Episode #22 back in early September. Time got away from me!

With a few days off over the holidays I decided to binge edit some audio to help sate some appetites for the conclusion of the series.

I did this for a couple of reasons, mainly, so that people wouldn’t be afraid to start listening again only to have a long lapse between episodes. The current lapse was long enough and I didn’t want that to happen again. As I type this every single remaining game tape has been edited and the associated blog post typed up and sitting in drafts.

There are eight more episodes remaining in the series (ending at Episode #30). Starting on Monday, January 5th I will be releasing one episode per week. So be prepared to get your fill of the antics of Satan’s Glee Club. There is some good stuff ahead! I found myself chuckling many times as I was listening to the audio during the edit process.

New Folks

Dungeon Crawl Classics has really seen an uptick in interested folks it seems over the past six months or so. So if you are late to the podcast, this is actually a good point to jump in. While it is in the closing portions of the campaign, the extended break in release schedule happened at a good point.

A short summary of current events in the campaign is in order (and perhaps even useful to long time listeners). Dandelion (an elf) had a child, Abishag, who was kidnapped by someone. The group suspects a wizardess they had done battle with in the past. With a previous assault on the tower less than successful, the group enlisted the help of the Great City’s Thieve’s Guild to gain access to Overlord’s stronghold. Leotah was known to make somewhat regular visits there and they suspected it would be easier to approach her there than at her own tower.

That is where the series picks up, with the group gaining escort through the sewers to the Overlord’s stronghold. There the group hopes to deal with the Overlord and exploit a possible weakness of Leotah to get Dandelion’s daughter returned to her.

I hope you enjoy the upcoming episodes as the roll out!

Episode 22: Plotting and Planning

dcc_rpg_cover_smallPlotting and Planning’ is the 22nd episode of a Dungeon Crawl Classics RPG actual play podcast. Additional information can be found at http://irontavern.com/podcast.

Session Synopsis

With supplies in-hand the party waits as Meffridus completes the complex ritual to bring Emirikol’s spirit back to physical form. The disgruntled wizard submits to lengthy interrogation, reluctant to assist the group with their plan. Learning what they can, the party sends a messenger to the Tower to possibly work out a deal. With unsatisfactory terms, the group changes tactics and seeks to make a deal with the Thieve’s Guild for a secret entrance into the Overlord’s stronghold. Successful, the group prepares for an assault on the Overlord’s Stronghold.
