Orinthal Redux #15: Clearly, You Have Done Much

Orinthal Redux #15: Clearly, You Have Done Much

April 14, 2021

The party faces the consequences of their actions over the past few days as they are brought before the King of Orinthal! Stay tuned for after the episode for the epilogue for each of the characters as they discuss what they would like to do following the events of the campaign.

Welcome to Orinthal Redux! We are re-releasing our original short series, Orinthal, with new editing and music. Three years ago, we started our podcast with this actual play with no idea of where it would lead. Taking place over a hundred years before our current actual play adventures, our characters in Orinthal looked for clues and hunted for a secret foe who instigated devious plots within the city. 

For those who have listened to the original release, we hope you will enjoy this fresh take on the story. Starting from when our heroes meet, our editor Adam has cleaned up the audio and we have added music to enhance the mystery and action. If you want to hear the original character introductions, those are still available on our podcast feed. You can also read our character backstories on our website.

Follow us on twitter @RulesAsWritten. We'd also love to hear from you! We have our Discord server, which allows us to directly engage with you beyond Twitter. Join us as we chat about rules, characters, and TTRPGs in general. During these troubled times we are keenly aware of the importance of entertainment media to help all of us get through. It is in this spirit that we're expanding the Nabresal network to include sending spells through electronic mail. Would you like to write a letter to Luven? Well, now you can! Please address your letter to dm@DnDRAW.com

Rules: Mystics Part 2

April 7, 2021

Are you a fan of mysterious mental powers? If so, you might be interested in playing a mystic in DnD 5e. But what happened to the mystic class from previous editions? We are joined by Jacky, Death by Mage, to continue to discuss what happened with the Unearthed Arcana playtest for the class, why we wanted to see more, and some ideas he had for how to build a mystic in 5e.

Death by Mage

Our friend, Jacky, better known as Death by Mage, works hard to help Game Masters, Dungeon Masters, and Storytellers improve their craft. Not only is Jacky incredibly talented, but he is also a kind, generous person that we are lucky to have the chance to know. 

 

Check his recent work on Unbreakable, a platform for Asian voices from across the globe to tell their stories through tabletop roleplaying games! You can find him basically everywhere as Death by Mage.

Orinthal Redux #4: Am I Supposed to Know Them

Orinthal Redux #4: Am I Supposed to Know Them

November 11, 2020

As the party presses on Kalima encounters a familiar face only for things to go sideways as not all is as it appears to be. Avoiding traps and spells, the party battle for their lives as they strive to learn what strange plots are in the works.

 

Welcome to Orinthal Redux! We are re-releasing our original short series, Orinthal, with new editing and music. Three years ago, we started our podcast with this actual play with no idea of where it would lead. Taking place over a hundred years before our current actual play adventures, our characters in Orinthal looked for clues and hunted for a secret foe who instigated devious plots within the city.

Scum and Villainy #3: Gonna Dominate This News Cycle

Scum and Villainy #3: Gonna Dominate This News Cycle

October 20, 2020

Neon Citizen has had run-ins with the System police and the Hegemonic News Network (HNN) paints an image of them as rabble-rousing troublemakers with no future. Neon Citizen wants to break into the HNN field office orbiting the planet and broadcast their own message to the people, spreading their Punk ideology. But they need a way in…

 

Can our ragtag band of scoundrels work together to make bank and spread their name across the sector? Or will they push their luck too far and end up on the wrong side of powerful enemies?

 

This is part one of a three part game for International Podcast Month. 

Players

  • Bethany | She/Her (GM) - DnD RAW Podcast
  • Daniel | He/Him (Editor) - Explorers Wanted Podcast
  • Stace | She/Her - Explorers Wanted Podcast
  • Quinn | He/Him - Monster Hour Podcast

About the Game

Scum and Villainy is a Forged in the Dark game about a spaceship crew trying to make ends meet under the iron-fisted rule of the Galactic Hegemony. Work with the members of your crew to thrive despite powerful criminal syndicates, warring noble families, and strange mystics.
