Episode 561 – The Trial of Icolnir

What’s that? Another episode of Brian’s custom MTG RPG already? Why yes actually! Before Neverending Preview Season(tm) kicks off yet again, we’re seizing the opportunity to follow up on the semi-cliffhanger from two episodes ago! 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!

Episode 531 – The Tower of Donothir

The dorks are returning to Trivester for the MTG RPG! And it hasn’t even been a year this time! Karim, Alaric, and the Angel are heading towards the tower in the distance. As they make their way through the jungle they’ll encounter some…interesting wildlife. Once they get to the tower they’ve got to deal with a crazy mage, a mysterious door, and an adorable dinosaur before a sudden revelation leads to an even more distressing question about one of the party members!

Episode 521 – The Long-Awaited Return to Trivester

It’s been a LONG time, but we’re back with Brian’s custom-made Magic-based RPG system! Karim, Alaric, and the Angel are still stuck on the mysterious plane of Trivester with no idea what’s going on. Since it has been SO LONG, Brian gives a quick recap of what’s happened thus far and then we dive right in!

Did you ever interrupt two Giant Warthogs during rutting season? Or set fire to an angry Primeval Force? Well you’re in luck, because we…might have done those things. Also, Alaric (Dirk) is one hell of a shot with a bow & arrow. Holy crap.
