Total Reroll NSCU: Episode 11 – Sewer Showdown

Welcome to the episode 11 of Total Reroll NSCU, our new Dungeons and Dragons podcast series. We are new members of the Neverwinter Special Crimes Unit, brought in to investigate strange goings on in the city of Neverwinter and to uphold the law!

We are on our third case, looking into the Blue Lake Street Race, which we suspect may be a cover for the disappearance of carts throughout the city of Neverwinter, leaving the city desperately low on food in the face of a harsh winter! We’ve had the culprits, the Nightriders, surrounded, but they’re escaping!
