Episode 54: Nature of Death

After traveling to the elven city of Homillion in search of answers, 2.4.1. Drink met a young acolyte in the temple there.  They learned that her mother, the Champion of Tevanna, had left weeks before and not returned.  She had gone to deal with a problem, but had explained very little.  The party now knows where the path she took started, but not yet where it goes.

Game of Heroes - Episode 2 - One Trial Or Another

The Ambassadors of the Loris games have located Delegate Hadron Lyle and are readying themselves to return to Manora once again.  Doubts still linger as to the legitimacy of the trial and many of them still seem determined to see to it that the Manoran Ambassador is given a fair chance at the games.  All they have to do is return to the city where another trial awaits them...

Game of Heroes - Episode 1 - Trial and Errand

It is the start of the games yet again.  Every ten years the peoples of the lands of Loris come together to participate in the grand event, as champions of each of the seven countries come together to compete in the series of trials that await them.  Hunts, obstacles, battles of wits; who knows what this year will hold.  The Ambassadors are gathered, having proved themselves in their own countries, and are now ready to face their first task.  All that's left is to meet with the King of Manora and find out what it is.

Holiday Hiatus and Beneath Shadowed Wings Delay

Welcome!  As you may have noticed, this is not an episode of Through the Balcony.  Nor is it exactly on time.  Could I have posted it earlier and let you know about this delay beforehand?  Certainly!  Did I?  No.  I could blame all sorts of things: the holidays, a global pandemic, busy schedules, but at the end of the day…

I was just lazy and tired.

All the aforementioned things played a role… but… laziness.

Now, as for the hiatus that does fall squarely on the blame of the holidays and the global pandemic.  It’s been over a month and half since we’ve been able to sit down and play around the table together due to our local restrictions.  And with the holidays we thought that taking a break and just relaxing might be better than trying to force out a one shot.  But going into the new year we do have some things to tide you over until we can start playing in person once more.

In the next couple of weeks we’ll be releasing the first episode of a campaign set in a different world.  I don’t want to give away too much, but it’s one that we can run when I need to take a break so you will definitely be seeing more of it.  You’ll just have to wait to learn more in a week or two!

Well, that’s really all I had to share today.  I hope that everyone is keeping safe and doing what they can to enjoy the holidays.  Let’s all make the most of these last few days of 2020 to the best of our ability and we’ll be back in the new year with more content for you to enjoy.

Episode 52: A Daughter’s Sacrifice

This is the end.  Maybe not the end, but an end.  Arabelle, Tamora, Lariat, Kai'nora, Dill'aan, and Ras El Hanout's prepare to face that end alongside the newly ascended Yunalia, Goddess of Prophecy.  Theirs is a tale long forgotten, unheard, and untold.  A tale that finally will be remembered.  But first... the accursed one is coming...

Episode 51: The Death of Xanithia Moonsnow

Sianodel.  Once the crown of the elven civilization is now a dusty, empty ruin around you.  Empty aside from the deep, abiding grief sunk into the stones and the visions of trees to draw the eye of a certain wild mage.  Now you must seek answers here and, with any hope, the goal of your quesst: one more weapon against the coming end of days...
