The Sinister Secret of Saltmarsh: A D&D Adventure (Session 6)


Our gang finds themselves once again in the mansion, in the basement. They ventured through the other hidden door, the one by the beds, and discovered a series of tunnels carved into the rock. A number of the paths were dark and musty, but a seemingly defined pathway was lit with torches mounted to the rock walls. Voices could be heard in the distance, so the group had to move quietly. Using her small size and stealthy nature to their advantage, Betty manages to get close enough to count the number of bodies in a nearby cove; including the huge hobgoblin guarding the entrance. Managing to get far enough away to make a plan unheard, it is decided that Leah will use an invisibility spell on Betty, her small stature allowing her to move practically silently and hopefully get in a sneak attack on the guard while the others come in behind her to take the rest by surprise. Unfortunately, their plan fails as Betty only manages to give the guard an unintentional hug instead, spoiling the surprise. Grossly outnumbered, the ladies find themselves battling for their lives within the tight confines of the tunnel system. Thankfully they do have a new ally, Enya’s wolf Ember, has returned from the Druid healers and is ready to take a chunk out of some bad guys, literally. Ember’s fighting prowess is just what they need to take down the large group of smugglers, including their supposed leader who’s as well versed in magic as they suspected and feared. The smugglers are defeated, leaving behind evidence of their shady business practices along with a handy rowboat. The ladies know that this contraband needs to be taken into town, but there’s still the matter of the top floor of the mansion that has yet to be investigated.

The Sinister Secret of Saltmarsh: A D&D Adventure (Session 5)




Ambush in the woods! Our intrepid group leaves Saltmarsh to venture back
to the alchemist’s mansion to complete their task. However they 
encounter a group of archers who attack them from the cover of the trees
and bushes on either side of the path. A lengthy and almost costly 
fight ensues, with several member of the quartet becoming severely 
injured. It is a struggle as the girls are seemingly outmatched at every
turn. Their arrows, swords and spells missing their opponents again and
again, but eventually our adventurers emerge victorious. They’re 
battered and bruised, some of them unconscious. But all is not lost due 
an exciting realization, they’ve leveled up! That means new skills, new 
tools, and even a new companion.

The Sinister Secret of Saltmarsh: A D&D Adventure (Session 4)



Success! Maybe? After taking on a small gang of skeleton zombies, a secret door to the alchemist’s lab appeared! Unfortunately the fate of the alchemist was confirmed when they were attacked by his remains, complete with acid that caused significant damage to Enya’s armor. With teamwork though the alchemist, or what remained of him, was defeated and he disappeared into a pile of dust
.
Upon entering the lab, it appeared that they had literally struck gold. Several gold items were mixed in with the lab equipment, along with some books including what appeared to be the spell book that Keledek had asked for. Packing up their loot in their handy new bag-of-holding, the group quickly left the mansion and went back to town. After a meal and a drink, their first stop, Keledek’s tower.

The wizard was surprised to see the quartet return so soon, but was nevertheless pleased to hear they had acquired what he was looking for. After inspecting their loot, their hearts fell when Keledek burst into laughter. In his opinion, the so-called alchemist was nothing but a big phony! Thankfully all was not lost as Keledek still offered to pay them for their finds, even if the gold wasn’t as valuable as originally thought. Even better was the higher sum the wizard paid out after some persuasion on Finnea’s part.

After departing the wizard’s tower, the group took advantage of it still being early in the day to sell off the rest of their loot and getting Enya some new armor as hers’ was a lost cause due to the alchemist’s acid attacks. Their bag-of-holding lighter and their coin purses heavier, the adventure had already paid off quite handsomely. However they knew that they hadn’t completely accomplished their hired task and that meant going back to the mansion.

The Sinister Secret of Saltmarsh: A D&D Adventure (Session 3)



When we last saw our group of adventurers, they had entered the alchemist’s mansion. After searching most of the rooms on the ground floor and an uncomfortable encounter with a swarm of spiders, the foursome found themselves in the basement via a trap door, hidden from view in the dark and dust. Unfortunately, they quickly found out they were not alone in the house. A group of bandits, likely smugglers, had taken up residence and were quick to take up a fight. Quite the scuffle ensued, but our adventurers eventually emerged the winners, albeit a bit worse for wear.

After examining their fallen foes for clues to their identities, and any possible loot, further examination of the basement was required. A smaller yet more opulent room was discovered, likely belonging to the ringleader of this group of thugs, full of more clues and loot for the picking. It appeared that the leader, while appearing to be a somewhat skilled mariner, also dabbled in magic.
The more they explored the basement, the more secrets it seemed to reveal, this time a hidden door in the wall opposite the beds presumably used by the gang. The door lead to the wine cellar, which included a set of stairs that would lead to the landing the group originally found themselves in upon first entering the house. 

They didn’t have time to contemplate the seemingly strange layout of the house, as the cellar, while lacking in bottles of wine, did contain a body lying on the stone floor. Unsure if the person was dead or just unconscious, the group received their answer when a large mass of maggots emerged from the body and headed for our heroes. Another fight, thankfully once again emerging victorious but no closer to finding the alchemist’s lab or spell book, the team finds themselves with a decision.

The Sinister Secret of Saltmarsh: A D&D Adventure (Session 2)


Several miles away from the seaside town of Saltmarsh sits an abandoned mansion, fallen into disrepair after the owner's presumed death. Most of the town's residents presume it haunted, but there are a few who are curious of the treasures the alchemist who lived there might have left behind. The newest arrivals to Saltmarsh, a group of four castaways from a recent lost ship, are hired to check the house for any spooks or riches. Will they find their fortune or their demise?

Join the Five(ish) Fangirls in a new series, where we dive into the world of playing Dungeons and Dragons. Our DM (Jared) and Chrissy are seasoned D&D players, however the rest of us are brand new, so it'll be even more adventurous as we learn along the way.

*Note: Yes this is our second session, we did record the first one but unfortunately the audio did not turn out. We're still playing with finding the best setup that works for all of us so there will be some growing pains at least in the short term. We hope you stick with us and enjoy the adventure!

Five(ish) Fangirls Episode #276: Family Ties


Every family has conflict, maybe even a few skeletons in their closet...but the Whitly family is a whole other ball of wax. We are joined this week by KJ from the Kinda Nerdy Girls Podcast to discuss the freshman season of Prodigal Son. What makes this crime drama series different than the rest, what we expected versus what actually happened, and what we expect from season 2 (because we are being optimistic even though this is a show on Fox *coughs Firefly! *coughs).

Five(ish) Fangirls Episode #275: How Kuzco Got His Groove Back


He's the sovereign lord of the nation. He's the hippest cat in creation. He's the alpha, the omega, A to Z. And this perfect world will spin, around his every little whim, 'cos this perfect world begins and ends with him. What's his name? Kuzco!
Join us as we throwback to the franchise that kicked off with one of the more underappreciated movies in the Disney vault, The Emperor's New Groove. We discuss the little-known turbulent history of the film, its spin-offs, and whether we think this one deserves the live-action treatment or as Kuzco would say, "No touchy!" Plus the news, your feedback and a few tangents.
