The Party:

Benoit the Anointed (Ian Boothby), the Half-Elf, Agnostic Cleric.

Brask Hellbeard (Shaun Stewart), the Dwarf Fighter, and brother of the late and beloved Thrask Hellbeard.

Edda (Joanna Gaskell), the Elf Barbarian, taken whole cloth from the wonderful, award-winning web-series “Standard Action.” She rages. And drinks.

Grima Windwords (Lauren McGibbon), the human Thief.

Spitz Lube’n (Allen Morrison), the human Wizard and Tavern owner.

The Story so far:

In the town of Tarkindale, the adventurers were hanging out at The Spitz and Ass, a tavern owned by Spitz Lube’n. As the town was preparing for its annual Pancake Festival, the party uncovered a plot by an evil cult to wipe out the town and resurrect a mythical being known as Zara the Shapeshifter. The Adventurers foiled the plan and drove the cult out of the town.  Jarrod, the leader of the Cult, burned down The Spitz and Ass, and nearly had Brask’s girlfriend Patricia the WereRat killed.  Jarrod fled the town and headed into the mountains searching for long-forgotten treasures that will give him the power to resurrect Zara and rule the land by her side.  The Adventurers pursued Jarrod, and along the way fought Lizardfolk, Orcs, living statues and sentient globs of Jelly. Oh, and Spitz got stabbed in the face. Repeatedly.

The party tracked Jarrod to the town of Arrington at the foot of Mount Korlak.  They fought their way through the treacherous tunnels underneath the mountain, taking on Drow and Junior Beholders, and freeing an army of brainwashed Dwarves! Now, as they celebrate with their new-found friends, they ready themselves for the next leg of their journey: The Tower of Souls and the final confrontation with Jarrod!
