EE-2-2 - Gone Buck-y Wild

September 16th, 2019

SUMMARY

As the party makes their way towards Port Norsal, having chosen to take Eldith along with them, they are stopped by the dwarven smith of the village of Starren. He offers them a masterwork quality sword that he has made as a side project for free under two conditions: they use it to kill Grimfang, and they spread the word about his work when they do. However, the party only intends to locate Grimfang, not kill him, so they turn him down.

On the road, Ariel and Eldith share stories of their people. Hoping to get some more information about dragon myths, Ariel instead, gets her first story about creatures from the Underdark. After steering the conversation towards dragons, she comes to learn little that she didn’t already know.

As the afternoon starts to turn to early evening, the group notices some wolves behaving erratic, who end up charging out into the road and attacking their horses.

SHOUT OUTS

Guild of Adventurers – This is a very highly produced actual play that really blurs the lines between being an actual play and a scripted audio drama. So far, the show has loosely been based on adaptations of classic stories and plays, with the actions of the players altering from the usual course of the stories. These have been great people to get to know and we were even able to sit in on one of their recording sessions to see how they get the show all put together. The only downside is that their production value means there’s a bit of a wait between episodes.

EE-2-1 - Good Deeds To Be Done

September 2nd, 2019

SUMMARY

This episode marks the return of the Erylian Epic campaign and it starts up right where the previous campaign left off.

Having finished their business with the dwarves in Starrengeld, the party makes their way back down the mountain to begin their next leg of the adventure. Currently, the plan is to investigate the location of Grimfang, and return that information to the village to handle the situation. However, waiting for them at the bottom of the lift is Lydia, the mayor, to complicate things.

SHOUT OUTS

All of our Patrons – Support from our patrons helps us do things with the show that we could not otherwise afford to do. This may not always be noticeable, or take a while to show results, but we reached a huge savings milestone as our last Story arc was winding down. Thanks to everyone who has supported us along the way, we were able to commission character art for the Erylian Epic party.

Dungeons and Randomness‑ – D&R is one of the podcasts I have listened to the longest, and is one of the shows that inspired me to create my own. They are a great actual play with hundreds of episodes and a large and diverse cast. They have also just begun a new arc in their story and released recaps to help get caught up to the story right away!

MS-2-8 - Nightwatch - Escape From Mieveht

July 15th, 2019

Arc 2 of the Mieveht Story has wrapped up, that means it is time for our Nightwatch. The Nightwatch is a special episode where the whole cast gets together to have a meta discussion about the previous campaign arc. This gives them the chance to respond to how certain events went as well as ask questions about why the DM made certain choices, what things they missed along the way, and how things could have gone differently.

Intro Background is Woodland Campsite by Tabletop Audio

MS-2-7 - A Look At The Past

July 1st, 2019

SUMMARY

This is a bit of a special episode. As we have wrapped up the second arc of the Mieveht Story, we take a look back at the past of each character. This episode includes three scenes from each character’s backstory to help give some insight into the type of person they are, why they make some of the choices they make, and what some of their ultimate goals are. We hope you have enjoyed this arc of the Mieveht Story. Our next release will be the Nightwatch that was recorded live with our Discord audience. Announced during that and a heads up now, we will be on a brief hiatus during August. August is a very full month for us and we didn’t have time to have content ready to release while we are away.

SHOUT OUTS

We have got to give a huge shout out to Tabletop Audio and BattleBards for this episode. All of the musicians who let us use their music are wonderful and we couldn't make the show we do without them. But in this episode specifically, the background ambiance that they provided really helped with setting the scene for each piece of backstory.

MS-2-6 - Sunshine and Curiosities

June 17th, 2019

SUMMARY

As the party climbs up the ladder to finally leave the sewer system after a long and arduous journey, they are greeted by a very pleasant tiefling woman. Cazivel owns a small shop near the center of Mieveht’s Cyriin district that sells trinkets for travelers, but also a few magical items. After a moment of trying to buy some of her magical goods, Chalul being the only one successful with an Alchemy Jug, she starts getting them ready for their job.

It is made clear to the group that this job isn’t just cover for leaving the city, they are doing a real job for her, and by association, for Cassien as well. She hands over travel papers and contracts to Willow, as well as a letter that they were told is to remain unopened until they find Sinah Nightmoon in the town of Rhodes. After their cart is loaded and they are ready to go, she gives them their final piece of cargo, a medium sized box which she places within a secret compartment of the cart.

As the cart makes its way down the streets, Willow happens to notice a wanted poster, with likenesses that could match them and others. Some are crossed off, and it is clear the bounty is 1000 gold per head. She informs Chalul who happens to spot another. How safe are they leaving?

SHOUT OUTS

Everyone is Jonas – Everyone is Jonas is an actual play podcast using an altered version of the rules for the rules lite RPG Everyone is John. The show is recorded live on Twitch every Monday at 7:30pm Pacific time on the Cave Goblin Twitch channel. The 3 hosts and their guest are all demons living inside the head of Jonas fighting for control of their human host in order to achieve their goals, this gives the show a slight competitive aspect to it. The show takes place in a modern fantasy Vancouver BC, though recently they have been crossing into the “Other World”. Caitlin and Damian are regulars in their live chat so come join in on the fun.

Inter-Party Conflict – Inter-Party Conflict is a great RPG discussion show that has been a friend of the Adventures in Erylia family nearly since the beginning. When we got to doing a second round of playing promos on the show it was only fitting that theirs came up. The hosts, Gabe and Jeff take questions sent in by their community or that they find out on the web. Got a question? Send it in so they can answer it and you can have the best tabletop experience possible.

MS-2-5 - A Bargain With Red Tusk

May 27th, 2019

SUMMARY

Having given themselves over to a group of bandits who have claimed the area they are trying to get through, the party has a meeting with the bandit leader, a full blooded orc named Red Tusk. Red Tusk gives them the option of bartering for their lives. He makes little comment as the members of the party give up some weapons and coin, except when one member tries to get ahead by claiming the others are giving fake coins. After giving the party a few chances to add to their bounty, without any hint if they are close enough, he reveals that their lives were worth 300 gold to him and let’s them be escorted away from the Red Band’s Lair.

Tough it might be expected that the party is home free now, one of them decides to sling a last minute insult at their escort, creating more conflict. Though they manage to work things out enough to leave, there is unfinished business that must be attended to in the future. However, they have finally reached their destination.

– A bit of a note regarding this show. Unfortunately in the time since I got this promo to using it in the show, the show seems to have faded out. I’m pretty sad about this and hope that Arthur does return with more episodes. If you give it a listen because of this, reach out and let him know!

MS-2-4 - The Red Band Hideout

May 13th, 2019

SUMMARY

As the group continues their way through Mieveht’s underground, they find that their path ahead is not as it once was. According to Victor, though the path is well traveled, no one actually lives along their route. That is proven to have changed in the year since he was last down here as they encounter a section of the sewer system that has been well lit with torches. As they make their way forward cautiously, they run into an orc, as well as stumble upon a trap. Realizing they are in over their heads, they attempt a peace offering with those who have made this area their dwelling.

BTS-5-6-19 - Adventurer’s Guide to Theria, Mieveht Arc 2 Nightwatch, Blog Revival, Interesting Landmarks

May 6th, 2019

Links

* Adventurer's Guide to Theria Vol 1 Kickstarter

* Adventurer's Guide to Theria Vol 1 Preview

* Previewing The Adventurers Guide to Theria

 

Hello Adventurers and welcome to your peak behind the screen for May 6th 2019. Usually, I try to do this about once every 3 months, and you might notice that this one is a little bit early. Well, we’ve already built up some news to get out, and some of it is a bit time sensitive. There is a kickstarter going right now for The Adventurers Guide to Theria - Volume 1 - Ellara that I am extremely excited about. I want to talk about the Nightwatch for the second arc of the Mieveht Story. I am trying to get more writing done for the blog. And to send things off, I will be answering a question from one of our Patrons.

 

You’ve heard their promo on our show. You may have seen them in our recommended page. But here’s something you probably don’t know, I actually cite a lot of my inspiration for creating the world of Erylia and starting the podcast to Dungeons and Randomness. Dungeons and Randomness is a very long running podcast with a massive backlog. They feature a huge cast, now running three separate groups, sharing a consistent story in the same world. This brings us to the kickstarter. Dungeons and Randomness is working on a setting book for the land of Ellara in the world of Theria, their homebrew setting. The book is already funded and they are currently working their way through a bunch of fun stretch goals to further expand the book.

 

This book is gorgeous, and if you would like to see it for yourself, they have generously provided a free preview, which you can find in the kickstarter campaign or linked in the show notes for this episode. The preview is already formatted, filled with art, and could easily stand alone as its own book.Did I mention, the preview is 64 pages?! They have clearly put a lot of time and thought into getting this book ready to print. Really, you should have already paused this by now and went to look at the preview for yourself, but if you need more convincing, I have written a blog post reviewing the preview and going over what is included. Check the show notes for a link to the kickstarter, the preview, and today’s blog post.

 

Now that you’ve gone and backed the kickstarter for The Adventurer’s Guide to Theria, let’s get on to some Adventures in Erylia news. You may have noticed that since Arc 2 of The Mieveht Story has started, our releases have gone back to being consistent. If you noticed this, it also means you probably noticed that period of a few months where, well, not much was coming out. I got into a bit of a slump when it came to editing, but I have really been working to get things back on track and keep us consistent once again. However, even though we were not releasing episodes, the cast of Erylia was still having a good time getting together to play some good ol’ Dungeons and Dragons. All of this is to say, we have actually already finished recording the entire upcoming arc for the Mieveht Story. In case you had missed it in a previous announcement, now that both stories have been introduced, the plan is to run shorter arcs in hopes of moving back and forth between the two stories more frequently.

 

We would love it if, while you listen along to our new releases, you send any questions or thoughts that you have to adventuresinerylia@gmail.com with Nightwatch in the subject line. We have not yet recorded the Nightwatch and do not intend to until the arc is close to being fully released. If you send in your thoughts we will try to work them in to that episode, as well as attempt to answer any questions that you might have as a listener. It would be great if, going forward, the Nightwatch can include you, the listener, just as much as it includes the cast.

 

I’m sure you already went through and read that blog post for the Dungeons and Randomness kickstarter. Did something seem a bit odd about it? Maybe that you were reading a blog post on the Adventures in Erylia website? Didn’t I kill that off like a year ago? Well you’re right, I did fade out the blog almost exactly one year ago from the date I post this Behind the Screen. If you have been in our Discord (hint hint, join our Discord, adventuresinerylia.com/discord), you might have noticed a huge focus from me recently on creating content as Adventures in Erylia. Aside from keeping on top of new episodes, I have been working to revive the blog in the past month. The last two releases have released alongside a separate blog post detailing decisions made as a Dungeon Master within the most recent episode. I may not always have specific thoughts to talk about like I have in recent weeks, but I am intending to try and create at least one new blog post per month. If you have something specific you would like me to talk about, reach out to us. You can send us an email to adventuresinerylia@gmail.com, you can find us on Twitter under @EryliaPod, or you can join our Discord (seriously, we love having new people in our Discord) at adventuresinerylia.com/discord.

 

We will send things off with something new I am going to do in these Behind the Screen segments. I asked our Patreon supporters on Discord what question they would like me to answer about Erylia, or something they would like to know about the world. Lucas asked - “What are some interesting and dangerous landmarks in Erylia?”

 

First of all, Lucas, thank you so much for supporting us on Patreon. As for interesting and dangerous landmarks? Well, I’ll start of with some honesty, while I have broad concepts and some high level maps sketched up for the rest of the world, Syvahl is the only continent I have done some extensive world building on, so these answers are reflective of that. I’ve decided on 3 different landmark like things. These are more like large areas, but I feel they are definitely interesting, dangerous, and even a little mysterious. This is a little taste for these areas, maybe I will expand upon one with more detail in a future Behind the Screen.

 

We have Tel Vashiir. Tel Vashiir is a giant rock that floats above a massive oasis in the middle of Syvahl. However Tel Vashiir isn’t just a giant rock. There is a small city build on the top of Tel Vashiir. Tel Vashiir is known as the City of Mages. It is the largest concentration of magic in all of known Erylia and is dedicated to the study of all magic in the world. Near the south western coast of Syvahl, an area exists that is known as The Plaguelands. Legend tells that this area became what it is as the result of a very powerful ritual going wrong. The Plaguelands is an area, hundreds of square miles, where life has been drained from the very land. Trees have dried and withered, grass has been turned to dust, and whatever creatures have survived are twisted forms of what they once were. Whatever happened also completely severed the city of Alderick from the rest of the Syvahl’s civilization. On the other side of Syvahl, miles off the eastern coast,lies an ever present fog bank known as The Mists. No one knows what lies inside of The Mists. Most ships brave or stupid enough to sail into them, are never seen again. A few have returned though, however whatever lies inside has driven them utterly insane. Not a word spoken by someone who ventures into The Mists and returns should be trusted.

 

Thank you for listening. This has been a dive Behind the Screen. Your way to learn some of the inside news for what is going on with Adventures in Erylia. We will be back next week with a new episode of The Mieveht Story and in a few months with another look Behind the Screen.

MS-2-3 - The Resting Conflict

April 29th, 2019

SUMMARY

Our escaping adventurers have found and slain the feral ratfolk and return to The Rat’s Nest to inform Scarecrow that the job is finished. As proof, Chalul decides to bring the body that they assume is Scabs back with them. As they exit the tunnel, they find themselves face to face with the pointy ends of bows and crossbows as the ratfolk had prepared for the worst. To Scarecrows disappointment, Chalul drops the body of Scabs at his feet, but having taken care of his problem, he decides to reward the party with not only safe passage, but a handful of trinkets he and his gang have… found… while exploring the sewers.

The gang carries on, following Victor’s lead, hoping to reach the end of the sewers without further incident. There hopes are granted for a while. Victor leads them along a well worn path and they avoid any distractions along the way. However, a well worn path means other people must travel along these routes. They spot light ahead of them and Willow sneaks ahead to investigate. She hears two thieves arguing over what seems to be a coin purse. While trying to use her new magic abilities to draw their attention in the opposite direction, she makes a mistake and they come after her.

The fight is quick in these cramped passageways, however, during the fight, one of the party members goes down.

A couple notes about this episode. The intro and outro music has changed since the beginning of the arc. These new pieces will probably be the themes for the rest of the Mieveht Story going forward. There is also a roughly 9 minute conversation after the outro music fades. It does not pertain to the story, but during their short rest, the players took the time to clarify some of the mechanics behind their gifts from Cassien. These items were all homebrewed by me and are available on D&D Beyond under the creator Erylia_DM. I hope to create a section on the website for finding any homebrew I create in the future.

We’d also like to give a shout out to Wonderdraft. Wonderdraft is an amazing piece of map making software and has been being put to use by us to create a map of Syvahl, where the podcast has taken place so far. Wonderdraft allows someone without the skills to create a map with Photoshop to create a beautiful map that can stand side by side with some professionally done commissions. Progress on the Syvahl map can be seen on our Patreon.

MS-2-2 - Everybody Was Fe-Ral Fighting

April 15th, 2019

SUMMARY

Our party has managed to locate the ferals that Scarecrow had asked them to handle. Being the feral creatures that they are, a diplomatic approach proves useless. In one of their tougher combats, the party must fight off multiple feral ratfolk, as well as the swarms that have gathered around them. However, a few slips from the DM while reading the stat block may reveal that these creatures are far worse, and this combat may yield greater repercussions down the road.

SHOUT OUTS

Four Orbs - This week we have a promo from our friends over at the Four Orbs podcast. Four Orbs is another D&D 5e actual play podcast that a couple of us have been listening to for a long time. They have a very unique world that I cannot wait to see more of, as well as a very interesting take on a modification to the regular magic system of D&D. I also know that they are currently in the final legs of their current story arc so now is the perfect time to get caught up for the end!
