    • I loved that reference because it works on multiple levels (there’s a prestige class in 3.5 edition D&D called the Ghost-face Killer).

  1. Actually this was your 100th episode. Episode 85, “The Long Good-bye” was posted twice, an original version and the ‘fixed’ version. Congratulations!!

      Hundredth post is not the same as hundredth episode… By that logic, you’ll claim MSP #300 wasn’t #300. :)

      • OMG!! I hadn’t thought of that – you guys are living a lie!!

        Counting can be complicated. Repeats don’t count. Posts don’t count. Should the first 2 or 3 episodes which were really MSP episodes be counted? How about a compromise that the next episode is “approximately” “By some measures” the 100th episode?

        As Rob says “Math is hard!”

        • I would declare next episode episode 100, than I would rename the podcast and start over at episode 1 again (maybe a 0.5 episode between those two) and after some episodes you should return to Major spoilers 125 or so.

            No, you need a nice zero issue first so that the new kids can get on board before the new episode number one. That will confuse things nicely.

  2. XantharTheFlame on

    Okay, maybe I missed it in the last 3 or 4 episodes, but I don’t remember the heroes “roughing up” Lolth’s seneschal at all. Can someone please clarify that comment for me?

    Thanks!

    • LemmyCaution on

      It was in this episode when they were tripping through time, right after they got whisked down to breakfast and right before they skipped over to the fungi garden. The part where Ket got Tork to grab Lolth’s minion who was guiding them through a passage.

    • Carolus Magnus Citrouille on

      @XantharTheFlame I believe Ket asked his “muscle” to throw the seneschal up against a wall when he realized they were possibly dreaming in a dream, in a dream.

      Rodrigo- As always, you bring exceptional personality to the various NPCs. Your depiction of Lolth was outstanding.

  3. The roughing up incident was also interesting because the memo from Bal Belbina specifically warns the party not to let Lolth’s minons goad them into doing something they will regret later. Of course Kett was mysteriously missing when they reviewed it before leaving the ship.

  4. Actually I have a question and I know Rob has answered it before and I can’t find which episode it is in but: I recently move away from my gaming group what was the website for finding a new group? Also does it do international :)

  5. During the question and answer portion, Steven mentioned that he was not allowed to mention a specific game. What did he mean? It was when he was clarifying the first question.

      • Actually, if I was reading a reader e-mail, then the game in question was asked to be ommitted from the discussion by the person sending the email for fear his game mates would hear this episode and be offended/angered/upset/whathaveyou if they knew their DM wrote in to complain.

  6. Thankfully for the party, this campaign is a podcast. Otherwise, Torq’s smart-axe comment, “Oh, and what does ‘expediently’ mean?” to Lolth would likely have prompted a party butt-whoopin’ by a no-nonsense demon queen, thus rendering the gang to fight their way out of the demonweb. In other words: TPK.

    Ket still needs much much more practice representing the party in diplomacy. How come he hesitates like 10 minutes after each question? Is there something else going on that we can’t see?

    • Ket still needs much much more practice representing the party in diplomacy. How come he hesitates like 10 minutes after each question? Is there something else going on that we can’t see?

      Well, I have a theory on that…

      Ket may be best suited among the party for the diplomatic role, but that doesn’t make him comfortable with the role.
