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.

If you like what we've been doing here then check our our Patreon, or hit us up on the Twitters or the Facebook.  We hope you enjoyed the special - back to regular TIER stuff next week!

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.

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.

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.

You can also peruse our character sheets from the campaign, including blurbs, abilities and inventories.

Dragons and Dungeons Special Part 4 - Words hurt, but not as much as an ork and a halfling

IT'S THE FOURTH AND FINAL PAAAART!

You know the score - if you haven't listened to the other episodes then whiz back and give them a schwiz. It will all make much more sense. Here's:

Part 1

Part 2

Part 3

Join our merry band as they conclude their fangrobulous premier adventure:

  • Jamie - Our noble GM and high quality prop photoshopper
  • Tony - Dwarf Rogue Caskell Marwen, the aunty in sensible shoes
  • (Emma) Bailey - Half Ork Barbarian Bailinator Jones, so full of rage she might need a little sleep
  • Ben - Forquare Quendian, the Halfling Wizard, tiny psycopath and concealer of cages
  • Mike - Human Bard Clam Strumlington, master of genital insults

Will they find Pilchard Pete? Who's doing that horrid chanting? Aren't tombs supposed to have dead bodies in them someplace? If you're any way intrigued by those questions then give this sweet mess a listen. Also if you want to play along with the puzzle, you'll find the following visual aids tres useful:

(By the way - we recorded this miniseries in two monster recording sessions. We've broken them in to smaller chunks to keep it all sensible and listenable. This is first part of the second recording, which clocked in at just shy of three and a half hours 0_0.)

Dragons and Dungeons Special Part 3 - The Rat and the Pilchard

PART 3 BABY OOH YEAH

If you haven't listened to Parts 1&2 then slow down cowboy! Give them a listen first and this whole crazy kahoot will make sense.

  • Jamie - Our noble GM and goblin impersonator
  • Tony - Dwarf Rogue Caskell Marwen, cockney flower
  • (Emma) Bailey - Half Ork Barbarian Bailinator Jones, the boss of cross
  • Ben - Forquare Quendian, the Halfling Wizard, and vermin conjourer

Dragons and Dungeons Special Part 1 - A Criminal Intro

Iiiit's Part 1 of our Dungeons and Dragons Special!

We've been making escape rooms for over two years now, so we jumped at the opportunity when the lovely Jamie Gibbs from the Armchair Escapist offered to give us a fortnight off to play a short escaperoom adjacent D&D campaign, with puzzles, goblin abductions, and nice bread.

So join...

  • Jamie - Our noble GM and master of a thousand rustic voices
  • Tony - Experienced D&D player, consumer of birthday beer, and the Masonry obsessed Dwarf Rogue Caskell Marwen
  • (Emma) Bailey - D&D newbie, baker of banana bread, and the faces to the wall half ork Barbarian Bailinator Jones
  • Ben - D&D newbie, awful punsmith, and Forquare Quendian, the Halfling Wizard
  • Mike - D&D agnostic, hungover, and the dinner and dicking focused Bard, Clam Strumlington

...as we find ourselves trapped in this new world, slammed in to new personalities, and attempting to escape the crazy fantasy world. Oh yeah and don't worry - there's still a good old escape room puzzle in there you lucky folk.

Here's the resource you'll need by the way for the puzzle...
