[PODCAST] D&D 5e Actual Play: Gran Terra Adventures 43

January 9, 2017 | Posted by John Bates

Why hello there. How are you? Doing well? That’s nice.

Who am I? Well, since you asked so nicely – I’m John Bates: voice actor, Twitch streamer, podcaster, cinematographer, scriptwriter and D&D GM, and I’m here to provide you some auditory stimulation in the form of a series of podcasts.

In particular, this one is a 5th Edition Dungeons & Dragons actual play, of which there are currently forty-three episodes. You can go back and find the backlog of these in a variety of places, including iTunes and the original podcast host here at Podbean. Before you ask, I’m Senstaku.

So, what’s happening here in the 43rd episode of this mad adventure of mine? Well, you’ll have to listen to find out, but the recap of the whole story is thus;

Our heroes are adventuring in the fantasy realm of Gran Terra, a world filled with fantastical archetypes, tropes, and the occasional goddess of entropy and destruction seeking to tear down the fabric of reality. They’re trying to stop that last part by gathering together the keys to her extradimensional prison, fixing them, and putting her back in her place. Their hunt has taken them to the northern pole of the world, a supercontinent known as Sloverden where sentient beings struggle daily against the deadly wasteland in which they live. While here, they discovered that one of the seals they seek is in a collapsed dwarven mining city called Zarkoun, and seek it out – only to encounter a trap for one of their party set by the mischievous goddess Eidos.

And that’s where this one starts off! Please, enjoy.
