Seven Sisters 01: Berlin 1945

Mattiaz had the opportunity to be a guest on the Fenix-award winning podcast Sweden Rolls and lead the crew there through the KULT: Divinity Lost adventure “Seven Sisters” written by our favorite people Gunilla Jonsson and Michael Petersén.

The adventure is set in Berlin in February 1945, two months before the Red Army conquers the city and the final fall of the Third Reich, and we will follow two allied agents and a German resistance fighter as they go undercover and attempt to track down a missing spy from MI6.

Sweden Rolls have been kind enough to allow us to release the episode in our feed in addition to the release in theirs. If you aren’t already subscribed to them we definitely urge you to check them out! https://www.swedenrolls.com/

To Ba'ator and Back 05: The Divine Tragedy... or the Infernal Comedy

In the fifth installment of this classic Planescape adventure, our characters must traverse the hellish plane of Baator to find (and then barter for) the keys to their escape from the fabled Pillar of Skulls… though how could they ever hope to trust something actually comprised of the souls of dead sages who in life had lied for a living?

To Ba'ator and Back 04: What Nightmares May (Yet) Come?

In the fourth installment of this classic Planescape adventure, our characters must wade through a river of blood… in this particular case: literally! And all on the blind hope that they will eventually be able to trade something of theirs for the information they need to escape the hellish plane of Baator… and that from a very dubious vendor indeed...

B6 - The Veiled Society, with Fear of a Black Dragon

We had the amazing opportunity to play the classic Dungeons & Dragons module “B6 – The Veiled Society” from 1984, together with our friends at the Ennie-award winning old school RPG podcast ”Fear of Black Dragon”. The setting for the module is the city of Specularum in Mystara, where three powerful families are vying for power. Interestingly enough this is a hard-boiled detective story where the player characters have to solve a murder and avoid becoming victims of the scheming machinations of the three families.

The adventure was written by David “Zeb” Cook who would later on create the amazing Planescape setting.

There is a companion episode for this made by Fear of a Black Dragon where they analyze the module that you can listen to here

Finally, music for this episode is provided by the amazing folks over at Heimat Der Katarstrophe, serving up only the finest Dungeon Synth for your enjoyment. Check out their stuff here

D&D - The Styes, Part 1: City on the Water

Issue 121 of the very much missed "Dungeon Magazine" contained a fantastic adventure for D&D 3rd edition called "The Styes", that took place in a dark and dreary port town plagued by mysterious murders. On Tuesday the 21st of May the new D&D 5th edition module "Ghosts of Saltmarsh" will be released and The Styes is one of the many classic adventures that have been included.

To celebrate this new launch we made our own conversion of the old adventure and ran it as a one-shot. Enjoy part one here and do check out Ghosts of Saltmarsh!
