This podcast trilogy has been an amazing experience. I've learned so much and am so thankful for all of my guests and listeners that I wanted to go out in Tolkien fashion... So I wrote a lay. I hope you all enjoy it. Don't forget to check back in a few months when Season 4 kicks off with the Sembia Revival campaign. The road goes ever on...

Shawn and Alan chat with Jared about the Second Prophecy of Mandos and the Dagor Dagorath.  They read parts of the early manuscript containing the prophecy and discuss theories about why Christopher (and his father) abandoned this concept. The trio end by introducing the Jared's original poem, Lay of Angruin. Listen to the Lay in episode 150- the last of the Ingolorion Bastards trilogy.

This episode contains the last of the role playing in this campaign. All of the former players came back to play their characters on the Plains of Valinor. It got a little silly and the DM had a little too much whiskey. In the end we learned some off the wall twists of the campaign (including some that will make Tolkien fans enraged).

Well, the group certainly isn't as quick as Bilbo at solving riddles, but join them in Gundabad as they try to solve an age old Dwarvish riddle... Or in this case, a "Dwarfish" riddle, in order to get the chain, Angainor.

The heroes learn that Littleheart, Imin, and Alatar the Blue have been kidnapped and taken to Thangorodrim. Varda informs the group that Angband, the home of Thangorodrim, is the most evil part of Arda, and that traveling there will likely change each character permanently. Once at the Great Gate, they are told by the sentry that inside the gate, "Your strengths become your weaknesses, your weaknesses become amplified, and each...

This fight marks the hardest the group has ever had, across all parts of the trilogy. Ungoliant is a force that seems to only get stronger as they fight her. Ezellendur is unconscious at the bottom of a Well of Varda and when the water begins to pour forth from the damaged body of Ungoliant, he begins to drown. Tesoro is unconscious also. Burin is stuck in the well. Just when all hope seems lost, Mor-lómin wields the the Flame Impe...

The heroes make their way to Ezellohar, knowing that Ungoliant is enroute. The battle begins in the darkest part of the night, and it grows ever darker when the ancient Avathari and her minions show up.
