It is a terrible thing to have to face all that you are without the cool, calming balm that our memories tend to apply to all our shortcomings. Friends, family – please accept our newest entry into the Drunks and Dragons saga. Please also take a look into your own heart. Look into your mirror without any pretense. Our show is firstly a self-help podcast aimed to purge, however painfully, any imperfections that exist within your tortured soul. Bonana.
The adventure continues with Titus Harper (Tim Lanning), Thom the Dragonborn (Mike Bachmann), 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!
I demand that Thrifty does the opening properly next time
The discussion in the middle is exactly why time-travel plotlines fill me with an unholy rage. If nothing can be changed, then the book should be the same. If you can change things, then their memories and bodies should have changed at the same time as the book… so from their point of view, nothing can be changed.
Unless by traveling back in time they have in essence been “severed” from the timeline, so that they aren’t affected by the changes they make (at least until they return to thier own time)… but then the book shouldn’t have changed.
To but it another way: AaaarrghaaaaaaaRedRum
Actually, there is a fix – the tooth-elf remembered the old past in the christmas special, as did the players, but Big Red did not, so maybe they have some form of protection spell on them?
Also, I totally thought that Harper was going to be the priest of orcus. Year of thingy, dark past ect.
Time is not a straight line on a piece of paper, and it can’t be separated from reality. Every possible variable is just as legitimate as every other. If you travel back in time and change something, the timeline you would then exist within would be no less legitimate than the timeline from which you originally sprang. One doesn’t have to be “false” for the other to be “true”.
In short, paradoxes are bullshit.
As are the time travel objections that arise from the assumption of paradoxes.
also, none of the people involved are time travel experts (because no one is) and were winging it.
I thought it was an interesting conversation, as did Thrifty I presume which is why he let it continue.
Blood drinkers stats keep changing its so confusing. 3xd8 for the Christmas special and now 2xd10. Ugh.
Ha, this is funny to see, as the Mikes never know what it does.
blooddrinker’s stats change depending on how happy or mad he is at Thom. Fuck off Tim.
I think..that blood drinker should lvl..as you lvl so does the sword that way it always does damage appropriately for monsters you face..so when the bastion of defense is used it is more balanced and is not op as hell(even tho it is op as hell)
OMG THE FOUR MANKINS FROM THE FIRST VISIT TO THE VAULT OF TRANTON THUMBLE ARE THE FOUR HERO’S THAT STOP THE DEMONS BECAUSE IT WAS A ROUG MAGIGAN WARRIOR AND A COMANDER WITH PERFECT ARMOR FOR EACH PLAYER SRRY FOR BAD SPELLING SPEED TYPING
This link wasn’t working correctly, and since I couldn’t download iTunes, I found this link to listen for this episode: http://podbay.fm/show/581324591/e/1389649864?autostart=1
Loved how “into it” everyone got. Why did youtube videos stop at this time? And did google chat kick you off?
