About Tim Lanning

Tim founded GeeklyInc with Michael DiMauro way back in 2013 when they realized they had two podcasts and needed a place to stick them. Since then, Geekly has grown and taken off in ways Tim could have never imagined.

 

As we enter the White Spire of Glaine, the Jewel of the East, tensions are running high. What will we find inside? Will we be able to prove our worth? Is my room and all my cool stuff ok? With these thoughts bouncing around in our head we must prepare ourselves for any conflict as we plunge headfirst into the unknown. 

The adventure continues with Jett Razor (Mike Bachmann), Aludra Wyrmsbane (Jennifer Cheek), Jaela (Nika Howard), Toby Treacletart(Tim Lanning) and your Dungeon Master (Michael DiMauro).  Don’t forget to follow our editors Steph Kingston (@stephokingston) and David Stewart (@spudcam)!

  1. Ha! Great episode. This was so funny and Jett was s0o creepy! Michael you are such a creative DM to deal with all the crazy antics that come along with such a zany cast of players.

  2. The RP’s are strong, but mechanically, I’m having trouble understanding how Jaela can attack through Jett’s allied squares, regardless of reach. I didn’t see the stream so I don’t really know the positioning, but it Bachman was truly “behind” his allies, how did she hit him?

    • For the sake of speed, we technically play some encounters a little fast and loose. Shaving off basic mechanics can be add to the overall fun/ feel of the battles. Depends on your players, though, right? Back in the day I would have preferred every little rule be followed so that I could “beat” encounters using the rules. Now I think we try to treat battles as another extension of the RP.

      • I agree with ya there. I started with 4e. 4th Edition really encouraged that level of rule following as it was almost necessary in order to not get your tush beat. I was just curious as I’m never sure what rules you guys are or are not following. Moreso I wanted to make sure there wasn’t some new errata that I missed! If everyone is cool with it, then it’s all gravy.
        Thanks for the response Tim!
