    In the 4th session of our actual play campaign Echoes of the Starcrypt, the adventurers find themselves buried among the artifacts that they were looking for. War rages overhead – between their employees and the barbaric clan Nargabar – plus they still have the injured Kydwe and ornery Forsha to contend with! Once they get topside, the chaos is revealed, and nothing is as they expect. How many do their enemies number? Where is Aster? Are any of their crew still alive? What is beyond the dust cloud? Will the amulet they found yield any answers?

    Cultures for every race

    We get BACK into Worldbuilding in this one. After tying up some mechanical loose ends discovered in the playtests so far, the Homebrew Hombres get deep into the playable races and three cultures for each. Maybe you want to play a humanoid owl from the benighted Krex forests, or a sentient ant-person obsessed with discovering philosophical truths for his millions of brothers and sisters… or maybe you just want to be a Made Man. Come along and brainstorm with us as we add some real texture to the world of Urd.

None or all of these questions will be answered in this 64th episode of the EPIC PIEcast.

    In the 3rd chapter of our actual play, Echoes of the Starcrypt, an ominous question lingers: Do they truly sit atop an ancient Guf ruin?

    The crew meet a pair of rangers, Aster and Kydwe, who brief them about the crisis of the missing Guf children. Who have taken them? Is it the cultists of The Way Forward or another as-yet unseen threat? No time to speculate! A recent choice comes back to haunt the party, and they get their first taste of what horrors await beneath their feet, while tensions above ground reach a fever pitch.
