Episode 12 – Not Quite Through the Woods

By Tim Lanning on

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.


To make up for the lack of a battle in last week’s Drunks and Dragons we fight for a really long time this episode. Like always, we go back and forth between dying and exploding the enemies with reckless abandon. Close your eyes and let the sounds of battle wash over you. Be sure to listen to the end since some pretty crazy cliff hangers occur.

The adventure continues with Tum Darkblade (Tim Lanning), Thom the Dragonborn (Mike Bachmann), Junpei Iori (Steven Strom), Aludra (Jennifer Cheek) and your Dungeon Master (Michael DiMauro).

Drunks and Dragons is a weekly podcast using the Dungeons and Dragons 4th Edition ruleset. Please let us know what you think!

  1. This is a great podcast, though I don’t prefer 4e. You guys are hilarious. Tom Darkblade should get a +5 to the recap rolls anytime his previous recap made at least 1 person laugh.

  2. Master Thumble could raise some cash by being the shady guy outside the gate offering to get people in for 10g just a thought for Master Tum Dorkblade Thumble.

  3. I love your podcast! It has kept me entertained for hours. One comment: technically, Junpei Iori is a Githzerai, not a Githyanki. Githyanki are the evil cousins who choose to remain on their home plane and wage war. Githzerai retreated to other planes to escape their mindflayer overlords.

    That being said, the story line is fantastic, and I look forward to finding out who each character really is.

    • Hey Jo! Junpei is not a Githzerai. It is weird, when using the character builder it isn’t super clear about which races are “monsters” and Githyanki make great Sha’ir due to their stats. So think of him as a Drizzt Do’Urden type character being hounded by racial animosity. But yes, he is definitely a Githyanki.

      P.S. Why are you so racist? (jk)

  4. Hey guys I have a question about how you run the character’s backstories. I’m finishing up a campaign now and possibly starting with a new group in a few months. I love the whole amnesia thing and the characters slowly figuring out who they are and their backstories. My question is, did DM Thrifty come up with everything and the players truly don’t know their own backstory, OR did the players make their backstories and it is left as a mystery to us (the listeners)? For dramatic purposes and whatnot.

    Love from superfan,

    • Hey Steph! At the moment the players don’t know their backstories. I would have been open to them pitching backstories to me, but I never really asked them either. Honestly tons of the stuff on the show is ad-libbed. Even the brain devices!

  5. I was listening to this episode, but when Mike Bachmann said “shake it off”, I was expecting a T-Swift reference, and realized that song didn’t exist yet… sad…

    • I can’t believe that someone else listened to this almost 3 year old podcast about strangers playing D & D on the same day as me. God is dead.

  6. Hello from the future!
    I love your podcast guys! I used to play D&D with my dad when I was really young, and you guy shave inspired me to try and find a local group to play again!
    Thanks for keeping me entertained at work!
