Episode 268 - The Orcus Onslaught Part 2

The Circle of Seven continues their fight against Orcus and his undead minions. Fortunately, this is the most hardened crew of god-slayers in all the realms so if anyone can bring down the dreaded Orcus it is them. But at what cost...

Story

The fight between the Circle of Seven and Orcus rages on. The heroes fight valiantly. Tephiroth in particular deals an absurd amount of damage. Neev casts Contagion (Slimy Doom) on Orcus, meaning that, if he ever takes damage, he is stunned until the end of his next turn, and this proves invaluable to the heroes. Aelar is eventually able to take down the god. With his final, dying breath, he summons an Adult Blue Dracolich, but Tephiroth is able to take it out in one round. Level 20 characters, baby!

At the after party, there are several points of nonsense remarked upon:

  • Aelar has a lampshade on his head
  • Tephiroth is crying that he has survived another battle
  • Eckhart is not drinking or dancing, but he does play with the Wand of Orcus
  • Neev has a rat in her mouth
  • They all may or may not eat Orcus

Bigby, who had recovered from his wounds, congratulates them on a job well done. Eckhart Dayhammer gifts Bigby his pinky toe. Mordenkainen had been here previously and left a note for them, saying that they had done a good job.

Trivia

  • This episode and the previous one were recorded during the GeeklyInc TableTop Day 2018, to raise money for the Alzheimer's Disease And Related Disorders Association
  • Orcus' AC is 20
  • Orcus casts Power Word Kill and there is some debate as to what the spell saving throw should be. Actually, there is none. If the victim has fewer than 100 hit points, they just die. There is no saving throw
  • During this episode, the charity stream raised $5,000, the reward for which was Owen swearing. He says "shit" and it made Daddy DiMauro uncomfortable
