Episode 200- Battle of the White Spire

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.



After a huge and shocking betrayal, the adventurers seek some good ol’ fashioned revenge. With the White Spire (and more specifically Toby’s house) falling around them as they battle with the Jett and his Nareevian allies the stakes have never been higher. To be betrayed by someone you learned to grudgingly trust…who you helped. Who knows all your deep, dark secrets that came out during one of the many trips to their Jerk Yurt…The only thing that will help this wound is Jett’s gooey head on a stake. 

The adventure continues with Jett Razor (Mike Bachmann), Aludra Wyrmsbane (Jennifer Cheek), Jaela (Nika Howard), Toby Treacletart(Tim Lanning) and your Dungeon Master (Michael DiMauro).  Don’t forget to follow our editors Steph Kingston (@stephokingston) and David Stewart (@spudcam)!

  1. Can we know what kind of d20 Nichole has? We all want to roll “NAT 20s” so often. Also, how did she min/max her character to have 400 hp? Can we get all your character sheets loaded somewhere so we can know how there is never a fear of dying unless by Thrifty Railroading?

    • I actually take accusations of cheating very seriously. We aren’t here to cheat the game, it isn’t fun and it isn’t genuine for playing or the listener. That being said, I have had a HORRIBLE streak of rolling low recently on the show and for every one nat 20 I get, I get 5 nat 1s. Last game my dice rolled well and that is it, there’s nothing special or fancy about them. Also Jaela, doesn’t have “400 hps” she has a few more than Aludra, the only difference is she has several ways to heal herself. I make it a point not to freak out or go crazy when my hit points get low, because that is how I play on the show and in real life. Lastly, as stated on the show, I do and would very much appreciate people not using my real name; I use Nika for a reason.

      • What is that quote from Hamlet “The lady doth protest too much, methinks” Not defending anyone but it would be cool to see your guys character sheets and what kind of dice and equipment you all use.

      • Ignore the haters, Nika. There’s always gonna be someone who thinks you’re fudging rolls when you’re doing well (no matter how many times you do bad or average). While it would be cool to see your character sheets so that I could weeb on you guys even more, I don’t think people should be asking for them as “evidence”. Release them if you want to, not by demand of accusers. If they don’t enjoy the way you guys play or don’t believe you guys wouldn’t cheat, then fuck ’em. You do you, Nika; anyone who complains can talk with your halberd. 😛

        • Jayla is expected to roll high. She is a Deva after all. We went back and listened and she only gets natural 20s 29% of the time. Leave her alone!! She is helping these noobs figure out the game finally!

      • finally catching up from episode 1, and I have read comments so far(if there have been) of each podcast. Don’t let those people get to you Nika. The fun of listening to the show has nothing to do with character sheets either. Although, I would LOVE to see Banana’s. The monkey that was a skill monkey.

        • Yeah, releasing the monster characters that folks made for Bachmann could be cool…just to show what bananas characters you could make.

      • The only thing I noticed is you did not say how much you healed yourself for so it was a little nebulous and that you used channel divinity twice which was not a thing you could do, but you generally know what you are doing and I think you are extremely lucky at times. Love the show. still trying to catch up.

  2. I started following Geeklyinc after hearing your Westworld podcast wanted to find something to keep me going until Game of Thrones returned. And like the hosts I found myself in an inescapable loop returning to hear the story of the band without a name stop evil and hang out in the RP for days. I’m still not caught up yet which is a gift and a curse, but I’m enjoying the ride. This podcast cast has brought sadness and utter laughter which I could almost not contain at work. Episode 160 is the funniest one for me at the moment R.I.P Banana Foster. This podcast also connected me with my new true love, fluffernutters. I never had one till Mike Bochmann talked about them and now I don’t know what I’ve done before them. I love all the anime references in the shows and for some reason when I hear the shows it only comes to me like an anime. I really love the battles and especially the RP and world building. It keeps it entertaining and fun. I hope you guys never change the the way you play d and d.

  3. ALL PRAISE TO THE FLESH GOLEM! This was an awesome episode, great work you guys! It’s wonderful news that you are planning on a longer Geeklycon session!

    I was wondering while watching this episode if Jett was going to improvise an attack move where he face-hugged nearby Aludra and slimed his way through her nose, mouth, ears, and tear-ducts so that the party would be left with no option to attack him from inside her lung-sacs, spinal cord, and cranium (maybe high constitution or healing or holy exorcism checks would allow her to cry him out). Personally I’m surprised that Jett didn’t take the form of an ally at some point, claiming innocence, begging for mercy, and sobbing with every hit taken to gain advantage on defense rolls via psychological warfare, but there is still an upcoming Legendary Final Confrontation at some point of course! 🙂

    Congratulations on 200 shoooooows!

  4. Great podcast we finally caught up. We have been listening as part of a social psychology experiment for college credit. We have to stop to compile the results but you guys are really good and Tim keep killing your characters because each new one gets more complex and layered. Soon you will be playing a full on baby or something like Kuato from Total Recall where it is a baby inside a man’s chest.

  5. never thought that getting caught up would be so bittersweet. today is probably the last day that i will be able to binge the whole day without interruption. on the upside, i can now satisfy my voyeuristic side by peeking in on the live-stream, i hope the players are as visually pleasing as they are aurally.

  6. Just started listening a couple months ago and finally reached episode 200. Hats off to a real troll of a DM. Cut the tension like the Wettest of farts. The kind that leaves a taste in your mouth. 7 out of 7 Stars.
