S3-E21: Random Encounters: The Mines

This week we pick up from where things were left off in Episode 19 and head into the Dwarven city of Gatekeep and the mines it connects to. For deep in the mines, a portal to the Planes of Dust and Ash awaits. What will the party encounter along the way? Who will they interact with? What are some unique features of the area? We hash out these questions and more!

The setting we’re using is Ta’nar (which you can hear about in Episode 9, but this could be ported into the Dragon Empire or your own campaign world without too much difficulty.

S3-E14: That Iconic Look: The Archmage

Back in Episode 7 of last season, we talked through various ways to use the Diabolist in a campaign, and this episode, we do a similar thing as we take another close look at another Icon of the Dragon Empire: the Archmage!

However you pronounce it, he’s a magical force to be reckoned with, and we discuss how he’s portrayed in the books, some ways to align him differently, and even some campaign ideas with him as a focal point.

If you have used the Archmage in your campaign, we’d love to hear about it! Leave us a comment on who the Archmage really is!
