Join the Blizzard Watch crew for an epic D&D game as they try to get themselves out of a crashed demon pirate ship of doom, streaming this weekend
Seriously? That’s where we left this thing? When we last left our D&D Spectacular game, the party was in some trouble. They had relics of the evil deity Vecna in its possession, their Cleric Mediel’s Warlock cousin Malachi’s demon pirate ship of doom just crashed into the Infinite Battlefield of Acheron, and while they did defeat the false Wilyur Rustspark there’s the whole matter of, well, possibly being stranded on the Infinite Battlefields of Acheron. [Ed’s note: This is fine.]
In case you’re wondering, no, the Infinite Battlefields of Acheron are not a great place to be stranded. Relatively few accommodations, almost no shops, and a constant series of battles involving the souls of people not quite evil enough for Hell or the Abyss, plus armies of Demons and Devils fighting over who gets to be the most evil. It’s generally not recommended in tourist guidebooks. But here the party sits, after the false Wilyur attempted to steal the ghost pirate ship and take it here for some reason. But what reason? Hopefully they’ll find out.
Since it’s been a hot minute since we last saw them, let’s round up the adventuring crew:
- Kainehe, a Water Genasi Sorceress — played by Elizabeth Harper
- Mischief, a Tiefling Rogue — played by Anne Stickney
- Fizzl, a Kenku Bard — played by Michael “Mitch” Mitchell
- Mediel, a Dwarf Cleric — played by Deb Montague
- Wilyur Rustspark, a Gnome Mage — played by Joe “Lodur” Perez
- Zellan, an Elven Fighter — played by Cory Taylor
- Arison Cinnamon, a Half-Elf Warlock — played by Andrew Powers
The characters are a little too complicated to summarize, but I’ll give it a try. So far we have Mischief’s complicated parental situation (three moms! Maybe a dad, we’re honestly not sure!); Mediel’s evil but charming cousin who made a pact with Orcus, Demon Prince of Undead; Fizzl being Fizzl (and coveting both the Hand and Eye of Vecna); Wilyur’s recently deceased evil doppleganger; Zellan’s talking axe; Kainehe’s unexpected fortune; and Arison’s whole “the forces of Hell are after me so in retrospect teaming up with this crew was probably a mistake” deal to deal with. And now we’re stuck on quite possibly the worst plane of existence there is. What was evil Wilyur looking for? Why did he seem to need a squad of the party’s dopplegangers to acquire it? Why did he ravage the Outer Planes and convince the Githyanki and Githzerai that the players are in fact horrible extraplanar despots?
The beginning of actually figuring some of this plot out starts this weekend, Saturday September 11 at 2:30 PM Central on the Blizzard Watch Twitch channel. We’d love it if you could stop by and watch, or if you’d like to catch up with our previous adventures, here they are:
