The whole gang has gone through a lot of changes this week. Everyone has leveled up, and has all sorts of new powers and abilities to show off. Aludra takes it one step further by shifting to the Warden class so that she can take over the defender duties for the group.
The group flexes their new muscles by rolling on Shadowspar Keep and revisiting the trial of the zombie hulks. There are some new surprises as well. Find out what happens by listening to this week’s episode of Drunks and Dragons!
Cast and Player Characters
A bright flash of light heralds Aludra the Dwarf's return from communing with the Primal Beast. The nature spirit saw the group's need for a defender, and has transformed Aludra into a Warden. However, she has lost the power to shape shift, and Thom the Dragonborn is no longer aroused by her if she can't turn into a bear. Despite her newfound powers, she has not regained her memories. The rest of the group discovers they have increased in power as well, and spend some time exploring their new abilities.
Continuing on to the holdfast, Thom once more throws Tum "Darkblade" Thumble into a tree so he can scout ahead. Both of them are subsequently injured during Tum's dismount. The group decides to sneak into the holdfast compound over a side wall so they don't alert the zombie hulk guarding the gate. But Aludra's new powers have not made her any stealthier, and she crashes into an outhouse while jumping the perimeter fence. With the element of surprise gone, the zombie hulk charges.
The heroes defeat this zombie hulk with ease, their new powers making quick work of the beast. Moving back into Shadowspar Keep, they warn Aludra to keep it down and not repeat her outhouse mistake. The group finds themselves in a room full of grasping zombies, but they fiercely attack the monsters (This battle marks the start of Junpei Iori saying "REE-FLEX" every time someone makes a roll against Reflex). As the zombies grapple with the heroes, the group continues to wreak havoc on their foes.
But even as Tum, Junpei, Thom and Aludra fight off the last of the zombies, another door in the room opens. A mysterious figure appears from the bowels of the holdfast. Could this be the infamous Lord Milnor at last, or just another of his horrors?
The party levels up! and makes their way back to Shadowspar Keep, fighting some zombies along the way. They run into a mysterious figure...
- The mysterious figure is not, in fact, Lord Milnor, but is, in fact, Thokas!
