Slack and Slash

Live-play tabletop role-playing in D&D 5e's Ravenloft setting. A party of middle-aged gamers portray hapless heroes on a quest to defeat the tenth-most famous vampire ever: Strahd von Zarovich. Combining Gothic horror with swords-and-sorcery fantasy, we use theatre of the mind to produce lush, efficient storytelling, with some goofy humour thrown in. http://slackandslashpod.com

The heroes have found their way into the Larders of Ill Omen under Castle Ravenloft. Here in the Darklord’s domicile, the shadows spring to life and gravity does whatever if feels like. How long can the heroes endure?

An unusual episode. We follow our heroes deeper into the Gloaming, and even catch a glimpse of Baba Lysaga. But then… Scott loses some audio and has to improvise.

Back by absolutely no demand whatsoever, it’s the drunken conversation that follows the game! We initially chat about Canadian politics, briefly dump on Walt Disney and Florida, and then settle in for an extended chinwag about Star Trek and vampire flicks. We get back to D&D talk around the 50-minute mark.

As lightning blasts the ring of stones, a battle rages against a cult of druids and their berserker zealots. And the Darklord himself has a front-row saddle!

The heroes ride to Yester Hill. Nadja ad Ezmerelda make for two increasingly unreliable sidekicks. Promises of druidicide are frustrated when the cult declares Andrej their Big Bear, which is as awkward as it sounds.

    Sympathy Pains

    Hosted by Laura Beil (Dr. Death, Bad Batch), Sympathy Pains is a six-part series from Neon Hum Media and iHeartRadio. For 20 years, Sarah Delashmit told people around her that she had cancer, muscular dystrophy, and other illnesses. She used a wheelchair and posted selfies from a hospital bed. She told friends and coworkers she was trapped in abusive relationships, or that she was the mother of children who had died. It was all a con. Sympathy was both her great need and her powerful weapon. But unlike most scams, she didn’t want people’s money. She was after something far more valuable.
