    The sword reminds me of Portal 2’s space core, and will defiantly become a recurring joke

      :-) I think you meant “definitely”, not “defiantly”, but what you wrote is ironically funny.

      “Oh, I know, I know, I know, I know, I know, KillYourFriends. ”

      Hee hee, yeah, I loved that sword.

    More shadows then he should? Is Rodrigo using the Vashta Nerada now?

      Waitaminit… lost repository of knowledge with a crazy artifact… the crew of a ship, looking for said artifact… some bad shit unexpectedly happens… and QRD is an incredibly old person who reincarnates/regenerates, has knowledge of things that are vastly ancient… AND carries a SONIC tool…

        Nice to know I wasn’t the only one that thought of doctor who when I heard Randus had two shadows.

          Nope it hit me too. Granted I couldn’t remember Vashta Nerada, but I loved that episode. It was a very charming and chilling episode with a great Badass Doctor moment in it and I still feel bad for Donna not seeing her “husband” before she left. But yeah, I definitely thought the same thing too.

    You guys were on fire this recording session. Really good last few episodes.

    Gtz on th 100.
    The Brentzen, Gla, Randus and Orem episodes are fan-tas-tic.
    Have just been listening to the whole series one-more-time, and the Moonhole episodes was really lightning in a bottle. But with Rob playing his first funny character on air and Matthew reborn with the Mighty Sir Brentzen The Bold (insert Matthew voice) the show has reached a new high.
    Thx to all of you – still my number 1 podcast.

    I’m pretty sure it was just for “Dramatic effect” but damn, either those statues were made out of paper, or Brenzen has a seriously high str score ^.^

      his strength score is almost 20 which is about where the peak of human strength. Also he has a magic sword.

    Brian: “Oh hey, look at that!”. I laught so hard every time :D. Great Episode, i love how Orem threats his students :). Can’t wait to see what will Rob bring to the table as DM. You guys are always the best.

      I love Rodrigo’s DM’ing, but I totally get the need for a break as a former DM myself. Looking forward to Rob’s creative juices (get your mind out of the gutter there, you!). Although I wonder if this might be a good chance to get Stephen back into the big chair? It would bring the podcast a little bit back to its roots in the educational aspect, teaching people how to DM a game, and he did a pretty good job his first time out!

      Stephen for DM!! Rob for Vice-DM!! Woot!

        I just want to see Rodrigo as a player, and wouldn’t this be the perfect time to have Alex step in to DM so all the rest of the guys could keep playing? I mean Alex is already always there too and maybe Aldo will make him a figure for his little Halfling Druid too. lol

          Alex is not always present when we record…

          I suppose it depends on how many players you’re prepared to handle. Given the challenges of this type of recording, I doubt you’ll see more than four players at a time, for reasons both technical and role-play related. Another voice might have us stepping all over one another…

            I guess that’s true. I hadn’t really thought much about it going from 4 to 5 players. It’s all about what works for you guys and your dynamic. It’s gonna be great any way you run it.

    Am I the only one who imagined that this entire exchange, Randus kept smoothing his hair back and trying to act “Cool”? Or is that just me as a Queen’s Rebellious Daughter-Randus Shipper?

    What would be their Ship name? Qrandus? Queendus? Randaughter? Rebellidus?

    Funny episode. Good stuff!

    I know this is super old, but I just listened to this episode and I had to comment on Rodrigo’s explanation of the Handy Haversack: “Inside that opening, it’s Wednesday.”
