Total Reroll: Episode 67 – Season 2 Review (S2)

Welcome back to Season 2 of Total Reroll, our Dungeons and Dragons podcast! Adam has been playing some some good old fashioned D&D with some friends in London, except it isn’t old fashioned because it’s 5th edition. After finishing ‘Hoard of the Dragon Queen’, we’ve moved on with the same characters to ‘Rise of Tiamat’, the second part of the Tyranny of Dragons storyline. You can find mega-posts of all of the Season 1 content here and Season 2 here.

This week we have a short review episode where a few of the players and the DM chat about Season 2 and how everyone thought it went, where we deviated from the source material and what we’ve got coming up next. Check it out!

That is it for our second season! We hope you’ve enjoyed it. We’ll be back next week with the start of a brand new season, with new characters and a new world to play around in. It will be called Total Reroll: Equinox, and will be starting again at episode 1. If you know anyone that you think might enjoy it please share it around, we think this would be a great jumping on point! And keep an eye out on our social media accounts for when we release the first ep, and if you fancy it then help us to get the word out with shares and retweets. We’d really appreciate it!

Total Reroll: Tyranny of Dragons Final Character Sheets

Last week we released the stand-in episode for what would have been the Season 2 finale of Total Reroll, our 5th edition Dungeons and Dragons podcast, after my computer up and died abruptly and lost the audio file for the actual episode. Tomorrow we’ll be putting out a review episode where I chat with the DM Ian and a few of the other players about the second season, and we tease what is to come in Season 3 which starts next week. It will be starting again from episode one, with a new world and new characters, and we are hoping it will be a great jumping on point for new listeners. If you enjoy the podcast, we’d really appreciate you sharing it around to anyone you think might enjoy it. For now, we thought it might be fun to share the final character sheets for (almost) all of the characters we played as for the last year and a half through Hoard of the Dragon Queen and Rise of Tiamat, to see what a mess some of us made of them (click to enlarge).

Red
red-1red-2
red-3

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Red was my character, a human female barbarian who was just a clone of Red Sonja, with a tropey backstory and an object of vengeance stolen from Warhammer 40K. I spent most of the time trying to turn her into something similarly unkillable, and based on the hit points I got to I think I did alright, much to Ian’s chagrin. No regrets.

 

Ravoprax

whatsapp-image-2016-10-24-at-13-45-15

whatsapp-image-2016-10-24-at-13-56-45

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Ravoprax was our bronze dragonborn druid, played by Alun. He was most known for casting moonbeam and filling every battle with a pile of summoned animals to bother the DM’s monsters.

 

Amber

amber-1 amber-2

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Amber the dwarven ranger, played by Abi, was a bit of a ringer as she often couldn’t make the sessions. But considering she very often did a huge amount of the damage needed to help us survive, she was definitely an integral part of the group.

 

Nausicaa

20161023_102045 20161023_102035

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Nausicaa, our half-genasi bard played by Ed, was usually pretty handy with a sleep spell or mocking words, and wouldn’t let a pub go past without trying to sing for a bit of extra coin.

 

Dariah

dariah-1 dariah-2

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Kirsty played Dariah, a half-drow monk who pretended to be the daughter of the famous hero Drizzt Do’Urden to hide her fairly horrible backstory.

 

Carnicula

carnicula-1 carnicula-2

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Carnicula, played by Stu, was our only character to die outright. No one seemed particularly bummed out by that. Mainly because he kept eating people when we weren’t looking.

 

Vin Johnson/Froomie

vin-johnson-1 vin-johnson-2 vin-johnson-3

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Vin Johnson, the goliath ranger, was Stu’s second character after the death of Carnicula. He added basically nothing to proceedings, other than announcing his name constantly like a Pokémon.

 

Artin

artin-1 artin-2

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Artin, played by Angela, was our hill dwarf fighter (or hill fighter dwarf, depending on who you asked) who was looking for the sword containing the soul of her great x 100 grandmother. Once she found it, she used it to behead a bunch of dragons. Not bad.

Finally, there was Eldo Timbers Cracklebang, our tempest cleric forest gnome and Talos worshipper played by Erick. I don’t have his character sheets, but despite moving back to America before we wrapped up Tyranny of Dragons, he Skyped in for the final fight with Tiamat. Maximum Effort.

And that is it! Remember to check out the review episode tomorrow, with our new story starting next week!

Total Reroll: Episode 66 – Rise of Tiamat (S2)

Welcome back to Season 2 of Total Reroll, our Dungeons and Dragons podcast! Adam has been playing some some good old fashioned D&D with some friends in London, except it isn’t old fashioned because it’s 5th edition. After finishing ‘Hoard of the Dragon Queen’, we’ve moved on with the same characters to ‘Rise of Tiamat’, the second part of the Tyranny of Dragons storyline. You can find a mega-post of all of the Season 1 content here and Season 2 so far here.

Bad news! As we said on twitter last week, Adam’s computer decided to have a fatal hard disk crash because it was hungry or something, and after a few days of trying various different fixes, unfortunately we had to accept that the audio for the season finale was lost. Which sucks.

To make up for it, the closest thing to a solution we could figure out was this week’s episode – a round table recap and discussion of what happened in that session, how the fight against Tiamat played out and how the story wrapped up. Join Adam (Red), Ian (the DM), Kirsty (Dariah), Ed (Nausicaa) and Abi (Amber) for a chat about the Rise of Tiamat, in what is at least as exhilarating an experience as hearing us actually play!

Total Reroll: Episode 65 – The Sokovia Plan (S2)

Welcome back to Season 2 of Total Reroll, our Dungeons and Dragons podcast! Adam has been playing some some good old fashioned D&D with some friends in London, except it isn’t old fashioned because it’s 5th edition. After finishing ‘Hoard of the Dragon Queen’, we’ve moved on with the same characters to ‘Rise of Tiamat’, the second part of the Tyranny of Dragons storyline. You can find a mega-post of all of the Season 1 content here and Season 2 so far here.

The final battle with the Cult of the Dragon is underway at the Well of Dragons, deep in the caldera of a volcano. After our allies did a good job of distracting the enemies below, we carry out ‘The Sokovia Plan’ – which involves us crashing the floating ice castle Skyreach down on top of the temple in the middle of the caldera, stopping their ritual for raising the five headed dragon goddess Tiamat. But can we make it off the castle in one piece?

The gang is aboard the floating ice castle Skyreach, and we are on the way to the Well of Dragons for the final confrontation with the Cult of the Dragon. Unfortunately, one of our giant allies has been brutally murdered and the cloud cover system essential to our battle plan has been compromised. Because we are doing a terrible job of finding the murderer, someone else has been killed and we are rapidly approaching the Well of Dragons without our cloud cover! Will we figure out who it is this week?
