[PODCAST] D&D 5e Actual Play – Eberron: Heirs of Destiny 07

March 27, 2017 | Posted by Jeremy Thomas

Welcome one and all to the latest episode of Final Show Films’ Eberron: Heirs of Destiny Actual Play podcast! I’m Jeremy, 411 site editor and DM for this crazy little game.

When last we left off, our band of ragtag would-be heroes had just come up from an adventure into the depths of Sharn where they had uncovered a schema, an ancient piece of a pattern for making magical items, under the employ of Lady Elaydren d’Vown of House Cannith. Having secured their payment, the group then set about figuring out their next step which, for Seth, meant learning how he had suddenly developed magical talents. For Alex, that involved learning some details behind her new companion, a construct known as an Iron Defender that they had recovered from the foundry. They went and met with a rather spacy, distracted wizard in the district of Precarious by the name of Perandon who told Seth he had sorcerous abilities and who identified the nature of the construct to Alex.

The group then went in their separate directions. Alex, Edwin and Branma went to speak with Elaydren again, who provided a bit more context on Arthur and said that she would look into the warforged who had been assaulting the group as they tried to get the schema. Seth spoke with Zaz, who told him of a price on Lady d’Vown’s head that had been arranged through House Tarkanen. Kira returned to Perandon and got some more details on the map they had uncovered in the foundry — as well as some questions on personal topics of interest to her — and he transcribed the locations onto a more modern map which appeared to be places of power or magical storage in some way. Having all come back together, Alex revealed her affiliation to House Cannith and Seth informed the group of the price on Elaydren’s head. Alex was going to go warn Elaydren, while Seth had Zaz arranging a meeting with the person who was arranging the hit.

This week, the party gets in even deeper over their head than they already are, meeting with the assassins of House Tarkanen and doing that ever-exciting aspect of D&D: shopping! One of those two excursions don’t go exactly as planned. You can listen to the full episode below.
