Arrival at Kraghammer Mar 13, 2015 Our story begins as Vox Machina, the heroes of Emon, arrive at the cavernous underground city of Kraghammer. After wiping out a grave threat to Emon’s emperor, Sovereign Uriel Tal’Dorei III, the band of adventurers has been sent on a journey by Arcanist, Allura Vysoren to find Lady Kima of Vord, a Halfling Paladin of Bahamut, who was drawn to Kraghammer upon learning of a great evil resting beneath it. The party get their bearings in the sprawling, dwarven city, meet a few of its more colorful denizens, and learn that the dwarves have been dealing with unnatural creatures spilling out of the mines in recent months. The mine’s overseer, Nostoc Greyspine, barely finishes explaining their troubles, when a pack of goblins and ogres come spilling out of the mine’s entrance, pursued by something far worse.

Into the Greyspine Mines Mar 20, 2015 After Scanlan Shorthalt brought the abomination of a Naga to it’s tortured end, the Vox Machina vowed to Nostoc Greyspine to put an end to the darkness now bubbling up out of the bowls of the earth. The team quickly gears up and makes their way into the mine, and begins a miles long trek down into the veins of Khaloor. After many hours wandering the dark, they reach a subterranean river within a massive, inky cavern where they are are attacked by a pair of umber hulks. The beasts are dispatched without too much difficulty, but in a fit of rage and shortsightedness, Grog charges toward a flickering light further off in the cavern. He stumbles across several Duergar, dark cousins of the dwarves above, as well as a skittering, four legged brain. The wretched thing is killed quickly, but not before lashing out at Grog’s psyche. The Goliath’s mind is broken, and he falls to the ground in a heap.

Strange Bedfellows Mar 27, 2015 With Grog’s mind now silenced, the twins fall upon the last surviving Duergar. Vex’ahlia presses their dwarven captive for information. The Duergar only laughs at the barbarian’s plight, and spits out warnings of the “master” that awaits them below, before Vax’ildan finally puts her out of her misery. After an uneasy night’s rest for the party and hours of meditation for Keylith, the druid is thankfully able to restore Grog’s mind, and the Vox Machina continue down through the great cavern. They pass through a gutted goblin village strewn with corpses, and eventually spy another group of Duergar, dragging along 3 dwarven captives. Scanlan and the twins whip out their flying carpet and tail the Duergar from afar, over a thin, creeking rope bridge. Scanlon disappears from sight, and now invisible, carefully makes his way into a war camp teeming with dark dwarves, ogres, and trolls. There he bears witness to an Illithid controlling all those around him, devouring the mind of one of the three dwarven miners.After catching his companions up, the group hatches a plan to lure their enemies into an illusion and drop them to their doom, into the cavern below the bridge. It is partially successful, but then, while acting as living bait, Vax’s mind is stunned by the Illithid and he is almost dropped to his death before Tiberius swoops in to save him.With the plan now in disarray, Vex and Keylith decide to delve into the chasm below the bridge, in spite of their companions’ protests. Their instincts serve them well though, and hidden behind a subterranean waterfall they find a cave. Within it awaits a powerful and unlikely ally.

Attack on the Duergar Warcamp Apr 2, 2015 The Vox Machina form a tentative alliance with an Illithid outcast named Clarota, deep inside the caverns under Kraghammer. They learn of the creature’s people and their subjugation to a mysterious being known only as Kvarn, as well as the haggard mind flayer’s expulsion from the hive. Now cut off from the Elder Brain, Clarota burns with hatred for this Kvarn, and wishes to free the Illithid race from the usurping entity. In order to do so, the Vox Machina must proceed further into the deep, and reach the center of Clarota’s hive. But in order for the heroes of Emon to reach the Illithid city in the belly of Khaloor, they must get past the first flayer they encountered, as well as its small army of Duergar.The heroes devise a plan, and fly themselves down to the center of the enemey’s war camp, to chance a risky assassination attempt on a creature that could easily break their will with a glance.

The Trick about Falling Apr 9, 2015 Having successfully slain a dangerous Illithid and its dwarven general, the Vox Machina find themselves surrounded by a small army of Duergar. They once again take to the air, hoping to clear the war camp and travel deeper into the territory of the Mind Flayers. Not quite fast enough, they are attacked mid flight and brought crashing to the ground, within a stone’s throw of the tunnel that will hopefully lead them to Lady Kima. With some quick spell work from Tiberius and Keylith, the group is able to flee further into the bowels of Khaloor and find shelter long enough to heal their wounds. Pressing forward, they quickly realize their path is growing more dangerous with every step into the darkness. Running into a pair of ogres hauling some rather exotic cargo, the Vox Machina quickly find things moving from bad to worse.

Breaching the Emberhold Apr 16, 2015 The party continues to wind its way ever downward, far below Kraghammer. Covering more ground in the endless night of the Underdark, Vox Machina eventually reaches a massive cavern, spires of jagged obsidian stretching out for miles before them. The group quietly passes through the fields of stone, making their way toward the Duergar Fortress, Emberhold, looming in the dim light of the caverns many magma flows. With a little dash of gnomic daring do, the group is able to sneak in through a secret entrance, and at long last find the one they have traveled so far to find: Lady Kima of Vord.​

Tiberius and Lady Kima turned to stone, and Vax’ildan and Scanlon badly wounded, the party flees the Duergar keep, not knowing where the Sorceress Queen Ulara has stolen off to with their Goliath companion. Realizing how far they’ve pushed themselves, they seek respite in the shadows and thankfully cure their stony friends with the blessings of the goddess, Sarenrae (tenuous though they may be). Relying on Vex’ahlia’s knowledge of the underdark and her knack for tracking her prey, the weary travelers press on into the deep. They come across yet another abomination in the dark, and battle the queer creature in a sea of bone and glass, Percy felling it with a thunderous crash from Bad News. Finally leaving the wretch behind them, they spy a fire twinkling in the distance…

After slaying her underlings, and momentarily banishing her to another dimension, Vox Machina presses her for information about K’Varn. It is in that instant that K’varn speaks to them, through the lips of the Duergar queen. His evil palpably radiating from the queen, K’varn urges Vox Machina to find him, in the city of Yug’voril. His message delivered, the Duergar falls still, her life departed.To the surprise of the weary group, Keylith again voices her growing doubts about the path they all walk, but after some assuaging words from Vax’ildan, the group makes camp in order to rest their tired bones.Later, they proceed on, finding a vast island in yet another massive underground cavern. Clarota informs them that this is where the city of Yug’voril stands. The party finds a ruined boat beneath the surface of the subterranean lake, and after Tiberius raises it and Percy patches it up, they take to the water. Pausing at a craggy beach as they make their way on to K’Varn, the party perhaps goes looking for trouble and does indeed find it.​

Vax’ildan ends up surrounded and takes a few hits getting paralyzed before the team can jump to his aid, but the fight is over almost before it begins once Tiberius gets involved. What Tiberius didn’t kill Vex’ahlia does.While the team tries to recover from the battle they are engaged by a Cloaker. After enveloping Tiberius and being telekinetically thrown from him the group chooses to retreat to the boat. The Cloaker gives chase and the party must battle over water. Scanlan proves his ingenuity once again and uses a new spell to help fight the Cloaker and once it is defeated Percy chooses to skin the monster.They make their way to another beach in the massive cavern and end up encountering a group of Grick. Tiberius makes short work of them by tossing a bomb crafted by Percy into the room and throwing a fireball on top of it. Once dealt with they look into the cavern room and discover the veil between planes that K’varn stepped through to gain entrance to Yag’voril. Keyleth chooses to scry Yag’voril and sees a collection of horrors being wrought by K’varn. With Keyleth’s scrying we learn that the dreaded K’varn is a massive Beholder.

Episode 12 - Dungeons & Dragons Campaign Tips May 28, 2015 This week’s adventure was a side one shot story featuring yours truly. I was hired by some weirdo warlock tiefling named Snugglelord, and he hired some sailor Dwarf named Salty Pete. I like calling him Sam, though. Sam is a name I can get behind! Anyway, Snugglelord promised me riches unbound if I followed him in search of some mystical land called “chat room” so, I did it. For the money. Salty Pete kept harping about a ship he had from his sailing days, I’ll probably have to steal it and sell it later. The boat flipping market is HUGE! We get to this barren village that Snugglelord promised us would be bustling town. We find some people, but they ran away. Probably knew to step away from a boss fighter like me! We find out they were standing in front of a well, but we quickly found out that there wasn’t water in there, it was like some kinda evil juice! We find a house and burn it down. (Don’t be a snitch, though!) The person in the house led us to the leader of the town who tasked us to fix their evil juice problem. Salty falls down a pit for not letting the hero (me) investigate. I try to save him and am sucked in as well. Snugglelord follows. We see our lord and savior Bahamut and almost die. After falling through the other side, we see a gem. Snugglelord does something useful for once and finds out that the place is booby trapped. I use an ancient Dwarven rope technique to activate the trap and we fight this big ole golem. Oh yea, we accidentally cut off Salty Pete’s fingers, but he’s being totally cool about it. ​

Before a decision can be reached, several Illithid glide into the chamber of the Elder Brain, and the situation quickly turns on its head even further. The immediate threat is eventually dealt with, but the real danger is still coming. Before they are entirely overwhelmed, the party flees the pyramid as a sea of Illithid surge up its sloping walls.
