D&D Episode 9 :: The Medallion of Mists
My, how time flies when you’ve overstayed your welcome! Our accidental heroes have spent their night in Cool Ranch, and that night became another night, and that night became a fortnight! There’s something strange in their neighborhood and it certainly doesn’t look good. The poor town is being terrorized by Chair’s love and Jamela’s lust. Cool Ranch’s can bear the torment no longer there is only one solution: Eviction!
It just so happens that Jen’Ifer knows a magic user who might have a solution to all their problems. And so the band sets out on the road once more. It is a winding, menacing road, with a foul stench upon it, covered with a darkness that twists your insides. Unease sets in as a pervasive mist surrounds the travelers… an eerie mist, that brings the spirits of the dead with it. It’s something weird and it don’t look good. Will this mist be our heroes demise? Who are they going to call? How frequently can we reference Ghostbusters in this podcast? Dare you listen? Are you, or aren’t you afraid of no g-g-g-ghost?
This episode features three tracks from an amazing compilation called 20-Sided Rhymes, an album that’s sure to be highly relevant to your interests. Hex, tell ’em what it’s all about:
This project has been in the works for a long time now, longer than any compilation that I’m aware of, but it’s been well worth the wait. 20 tracks, each dedicated to a side of the icosahedron we all know and love, each one deserving to be there. Z. of Hipster, Please! has outdone himself with this compilation, summoning an incredible and eclectic group of musicians to entertain the listener with the multifaceted sides of gaming: be it something new like I Fight Dragons‘ Brian Mazzaferri’s Offering, something remixed like 8-Bit Weapon‘s take on MC Frontalot‘s Hassle the Dorkening, or something that even the non-gamer can relate to, like Orlando’s own Marc with a C‘s Don’t Know A Thing About Role-Playing. The entire compilation is free, so if you enjoyed the music on this month’s Dungeons & Doritos, it’s highly recommended to just head on over here and pick it up for yourself!
Another special thing about this month’s episode is the album art: a hand-carved jack-o-lantern courtesy of the outstanding Ms. Eleanor Edwards. Thanks Eleanor! It’s amazing! Click the pic above to make it bigger.
