Funny how listening to yourself allows for some perspective on how you sound. :D Though I'm not sure I've noticed the sentence delays myself. I know I [...]

Episode 16 We're Not Insulting Our Listeners

Theme: Poetic Pitbull Revolutions, by Diablo Swing Orchestra; used with permission.

Warning: gameplay recordings may and probably do include language and material offensive to some listeners. Ok, many listeners. Listener discretion is advised.

After a few minutes trying to refresh our memories on exactly what had happened in the previous game session, the Headlanders drop back in on the Professor to top off on everything they couldn't remember and didn't write down. Then ... more info dumping!

This episode is chock full of Amity back story, if you like that sort of thing.

Before we get to that, however, another shadey, dastardly merchant refuses to buy an item from the Headlanders for the same amount he's going to sell it for. Damn them.

Then the Headlanders uncover a disappearing rope conspiracy.

And finally, the party returns to the sewers under Liegeport where they first met Madacam Rat back in episode 6, which you probably don't remember because that entire portion of the game recording was lost. Fortunately, the Headlanders don't remember either, so there's a brief rehash of the entire encounter.

Adam should win an Oscar for his delivery after the incident at around the one hour mark. At 1:01:03 a monologue starts that is probably one of my favorite gaming speeches of all time.


Referenced Order of the Stick web comic.

Ok, why the harshness about the damn door? I'm a pretty lax GM. I leave it to players to manage their own carrying weight, ammunition and food. I don't believe in alignments so I'm all right with players running their characters however they want. There's one rule that I do stick to, however, and that's no metagame communication. If your character isn't standing right there and isn't on the phone at this very moment, you can not share ideas with the currently acting character. Rae was trying to set up a plan long after his character had walked away. Who knows what Adam would've come up with on his own, he's not a dumb player, but that particular idea was off the table because Rae metagamed it.

Also - The Hazradi? Ji'Nai? The Morgub? Il Hazrad? Well I thought it was funny.

2:00:13 - ???
