Episode 20 – Gladiator Games

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.


After being captured by Thumble soldiers the gang has to overcome a few obstacles to win their freedom. Tum’s father, Trant Thumble, has some sort of coleseum with scary creatures that host fights for the entertainment of the people. Tum was pitted against the brand new Tum – a horrific minotaur. Hopefully he will get through the help of his friends everything will work out A-OK.

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!

Screens from this week’s adventure to assist with your theater of the mind:


  1. I love you all so much. I thirst for and covet each weekly episode.

    Joonpee, don’t be sad. You don’t get the credit you deserve. You have a wonderful personality and you’re one of my favorite characters, right up there with Tum Tum. I can’t get enough of that SLY FLOURISH! Of course, I love you all equally *wink*, Aludra and Thom.

    And ThriftyNerd! Thrifty, I haven’t forgotten about you. You are the director and auteur of this cinematic masterpiece. You bring it all together and keep the stars of the show under control. I sense your subtle behind-the-scenes work that keeps the chaos and jokes at the perfect balance where they enhance the theatrics rather than distract and annoy the listener. Your plots are elegantly simple and yet thrilling and fun. Also, much props on your ability to personify so many lovable characters. Your performances as Captain Hookbeard and Roz were absolutely brilliant, so much fun! I love the NPCs you play just as much as the real stars of the show.

    I wish you guys tons of success because I’d be so sad without you in my life. I hope someday you can all quit your jobs and play D&D full time so I can listen to you every day. I’m a huge fan and I love you all.

    BTW, great episode as always! I can’t wait to see what happens this week.

  2. I would love an mp3 file of the math song for my D&D games!

    Would it be possible to get a copy?

    Also, this is one of my favourite Real Play podcasts ever.

    Slyyyyyyyyy Flourish!

  3. Started listening to your show about a week ago, now I am over 30hrs in! Really loving this podcast

    Thank you all for the hours of fun!

  4. Not sure if you’ll look at a comment on an episode this far back, but I just found you guys and am listening all the way through. The reason Drizzt isn’t bothered by daylight is because of “daylight adaptation” which gets rid of his penalties in daylight.

  5. I started with your videos on YouTube which start long after [redacted’s] death and with jimbob’s oat emporium and I just had to hear the adventure from the beginning. I forgot how much I miss thom.

  6. It’s now 2019 and I’ve just started your podcasts. I’m currently on this one. Not wanting to jump forward because I am loving this podcast on Spotify.
