Episode 590 – Not the Bees! (Heirs of Trivester)

We now return to Trivester for another installment of Brian’s custom MTG RPG! After the last installment’s massive exposition dump Karim, Alaric, and the Angel are off to track down someone else that might have some idea what’s going on. Along the way we’ll be accosted by various critters that could potentially want to kill us. And of course, our beloved soldier boy really has a hang-up about fighting animals. Even when they’re killer bees with little swords and shields!

After we’re done with the RPG bit the final thoughts turn back to current events. You have been warned.

Episode 576 – The Revelations of Icolnir

It’s time for another installation of Brian’s custom MTG RPG, Heirs of Trivester! The last time we saw our heroes they had barely taken out a vicious noggle mage controlled by Icolnir after making their way through a cavernous labyrinth. This episode picks up right there, with our weary travelers still bleeding on the floor of the cave.

We’ll hear all about what is happening on this plane, get a bit of a history lesson, and manage to pick up some sweet new gear! You know, since most of ours didn’t survive the boss fight. It’s one of our mostly-narrative RPG episodes, but it’s all stuff we’re gonna need to know to find our way off of this freakin’ plane!

We’re heading into the mountain to see what sort of trial Icolnir has (almost literally it turns out) cooked up for us!

Treasure? Check! Brutal combat? Check! Party wipe? I guess you’ll just have to see won’t you?

Episode 559 – In Search of Icolnir, Mistress of the Mountain

The dorks dive back into the Heirs of Trivester, Brian’s custom-made Magic-based RPG game! Last time Karim, Alaric, and the Angel were bumbling around the forest fighting big ants and big cats, but now we’re finally getting closer to tracking down the mysterious Icolnir. Apparently we’re not supposed to trust her appearance but we are supposed to show her great respect. No problem, right?

Episode 543 – Jungles & Panthers & Ants Oh My

The dorks are back on Trivester with Brian’s custom MTG RPG! This episode is pretty heavy on the combat encounters and light on the narrative, but I’m sure we’ll get back to the mystery in the next installment! If you want to know who gets mauled horribly out of nowhere, who is stalking the party through the jungle, and who you should have rolling your D20s, you’re in for a treat!
