All’s fair in love, war and tea

aka Escape the Boston Tea Party
This episode is brought to you by our wonderful Patreons Dave Shaw and Karen Cate. Thank you!

Join Mike, Laura and Ben as they infiltrate the Boston Tea Party Museum to find the last remaining tea chest from the Boston Tea Party.
  • Will Mike and Ben find a tri-corner hat that actually fits?
  • How does Ben unlock the podcast's secret God-Mode?
  • Is fruit tea really tea or just an infusion?
Find out now in this Independence Day special episode!
 
If you're playing along at home, you'll need this map of the islands around Boston harbour.

The Quest - Part 4: Cool halflings don’t look at explosions

It's the final part of our Quest special! If you haven't listened to the rest then hold your horses, nip back to part 1 and we'll see you in a while.

Join our roving band of breakfasting adventures as they find the final puzzle piece of Enaria's secrets, and offend a local religion with their dice rolls and use of magical incendiaries. If you'd like to solve the big puzzle along with us, then check out this map of the city. Alternatively, if your day to day life already involves too much brain churning thought then you can skip ahead to the solution.

Ben is Forquare Quendien - A halfling wizard, and mute war crime in a seven year old's dress-up robe.

Bailey is Bailinator Jones - A half orc fighter, roller of diabolical dice and yorping standup comedian.

Jamie plays Luck, Stuck and Bugger - A trio of goblin spies in a trenchcoat, and the bane of park caretakers everywhere.

Mike plays Clam Strumlington, an oversexed and underbrained shapeshifting bard. Has moved on from horny animals to ones with big trunks for sucking, and beaks for beaking.

And Tony is our guide, leading us through the adventure, and starving for a curry.

You can find out more about the gang via our character sheets, including blurbs, abilities and inventories.

The Quest - Part 3: Don’t make me run, I’m full of chocolate

It's part 3 of our 4 part Quest special! Join our band of merry adventurers as they conduct a little light tomb desecration, Dieter invocation and snoozy brunching! If you haven't listened to part 1 and part 2 yet then quick, go back - give them a listen!

Ben is Forquare Quendien - A halfling wizard. He doesn't say much, which on reflection is an interesting choice of character trait for a podcast.

Bailey is Bailinator Jones - A half orc fighter. She's glam, she's disco, and she's itching to smack something with an axe. Standard Swansea night out.

Jamie plays Luck, Stuck and Bugger - A trio of goblin spies in a trenchcoat. We wish you could see the webcam pantomime we were witness to as Jamie mimed having three sets of stacked hands. It was poetry.

Mike plays Clam Strumlington, an oversexed and underbrained shapeshifting bard. He's got a list of horny animals he wants to transform in to, and a sound effects board.

And Tony is our guide, and does a smashing impression of a ten year old German exchange student.

If you're mega smart want to solve the puzzle before us, here's a cheeky map of the city of Enaria. You can also peruse our character sheets from the campaign, including blurbs, abilities and inventories.

And as ever, you can check our our Patreon, or hit us up on the Twitters or the Facebook.

The Quest - Part 1: Crack it like a crème brulee

This is part 1 of a 4 part special! Oh boy oh boy oh boy - we have wanted to run another one of these ever since we did our first D&D miniseries. This time, we're using the Quest RPG system, and we've got to say we absolutely love it. 

Tony guides Me, Ben, Bailey and Jamie through a fantastic adventure, filled with quirky powers, great puzzles, daft gadgets and dodgily accented characters.

We recorded this in one big 6 hour session - with Tony putting in some nice chapter points for us to break the episodes up. Should we have called it chapters rather than parts? Yes. Bugger. Oh well.

In part 1 we find ourselves transported once more to a magical world, and in to the bodies of our characters:

Ben is Forquare Quendien - A halfling wizard. He can use magic strike, kindle, blink and other abilities. he's armed with a staff, a dagger a longsword and a Fray Bentos tinned tent. He's doesn't say much, but his magical violence does the speaking for him.

Bailey is Bailinator Jones - A half orc fighter. She Can use counterattack, wild attack, provoke and other abilities. She's armed with a double-headed axe, a longsword, some Swansea knuckledusters, and some kiln gauze. Last year this orc saw the pork.

Jamie plays Luck, Stuck and Bugger - A trio of goblin spies in a trenchcoat. They can use sneak attack, poison, disguise and spyglasses, and are armed with a scimitar, a club, a dagger and some lockpicks. They have the look of someone underage trying to get in to the cinema.

Mike plays Clam Strumlington, an oversexed and underbrained shapeshifting bard. Can use Shapeshift, Wild Aspect and Gills as well as other skills.  Armed with a Rapier, a Battle Lute and a Dagger. Also have a magical flask of Brandy. Clam is the party's resident goon.

Escape the ultimate betrayal at Traitors Rest!

This week join Ben, Danny and Alan as they find themselves caught in Mike's Machiavellian scheme of treachery, betrayal, and some very unsubtle puzzles. Mike was revoltingly pleased with himself for this one.

Spoiler alert! If you want to be in on the joke from the beginning then read on...

This is the message Ben, Alan and Danny received before the recording:

Hope you don’t mind but I’ve got a cheeky request. For the recording tonight, you have a super secret mission. You are a saboteur, and it will be your role to stop the other two from escaping by solving the exit door puzzle. If the other two get you to admit to being a saboteur then the doll (which will make sense at the time) will get you, and you’ll be ejected from the recording and into the lobby until the others have escaped (or failed). To keep things fun, there will be one or two very subtle clues that something is afoot, but it’ll be up to the others to spot them.

If you want to play along with the puzzles, here's the plaques:

  • Benedict arnoldO
  • BrutusO
  • Scar from the lion kingU
  • Jamie LannisterIE
  • Guy FawkesEAE

And the dreamcatcher beads:

  • 3 TRST
  • 4 MKS
  • 1 D
  • 2 NT
  • 5 MSSG

Escape Longleat Safari!

Don't let the title fool you. Jon does his best to be dark and creepy while the others consistently undermine him with gags about buttocks, scarecrows, and the many ways in which an abandoned car with a birds nest growing in it might no longer be road worthy. Oh and there's bodies. Lots of bodies.
