    Tidefall E8 (1/3)

    Last time on Tidefall...
    Our adventurers try to escape the Brass Guild sector. Things... don't go smoothly. First Flip almost gets caught, but Nell saves his hide. Then Hera tries to convert Leah to her way of thinking. Again, does not go well. So Salt beans her, gives her a slight case of brain damage. On the way out of the sector, guards confiscate Leah to relocate her to the nearest hospital.
    After getting back to the bar, things get tense (what a surprise). Nell finds out Maximus is missing and get's a little pissed. They wait it out, eventually Maximus shows up and tells everyone about Salt knocking him out.
    Eventually our heroes open up to each other. They are a big happy family again. While Hera goes shopping the dudes do "Arm stuff". Salt can't have a crappy arm forever.
    The group decides they need leads. So they search around town for Gabriel Cobb. After some sneaky skullduggery, they figure out where the boss man lives. So with a week and a half until "The Event", Flip goes in, alone, to do his thing.
    What will happen next? Find out, now.

    Tidefall E7 (1/3)

    Last time on Tidefall...
    After the long and tense journey to the Tortoise, Flip had a plan. He was going to make a new gang in remembrance of Salt. #Saltgang. He started with Joe and Uriah. But things took a twist after their arrival. Not ten minutes after docking, Flip just casually ran into Salt. Queue the biggest kid grin from Flip.
    Turns out, Salt just fell into the ocean. He made a good Shark snack, but thankfully some fellows known as "The Children of Yantis" happened to find him. They thankfully kept our boy alive, and even gave him a replacement arm (not a nice one... but it works). While stationed with them, Salt ran into an old friend of his, Maximus. Now to people who don't remember, Max was the first Revenant Salt ever met. He was also someone that Salt left for dead.
    So skipping forward, the Children of Yantis tasked Maximus, Nell the thief, and Salt to find out what the Brass Guild is doing. So our heroes got pulled into this cultist plan. So it's stakeout time. Hera went in sneaky, Salt kept lookout, all while Flip and #Saltgang were ready to be a distraction.
    Hera listened in, found out about some dastardly plan that happens in 2 weeks. Leah (the lady who threw a bomb at Flip) was also there, overseeing everything while looking for our trouble making heroes. After Leah left, Maximus got cold feet and enacted the distraction plan. A few explosions and one knocked out Maximus later, Hera ran at Leah and revealed herself as a potential ally to the Brass Guild.

Discriminatory

As a blind individual I was appalled that Paul and his crew would make fun of a blind npc. These people really need to learn a few things about acceptance, inclusion, and should avoid false stereotypes. I might be blind, but can still look at people while they are talking. The cleric, Harbeck (sp?), could have cast Lesser Restoration, which cures blindness. Instead, the cast decided to make fun of the disabled npc. This cast needs to grow up and learn how to be decent human beings.

Awesome Story - Great Growth

The story and changes throughout the first season was incridible. Seeing the new players grow from new players that had very limited knowledge into eventually doing epic tasks changing the world was great.

Also, if you get hung up on some of the weirdness in the first episode or 2 of the main show please stick too it. The podcast itself grows a LOT and the story is really worth it.

D&D With A Lot of Heart

This group always gives me a reason to smile whether they’re bungling a high-profile political encounter, doing deadly combat with a “crab preacher,” or taming legendary sky beasts. ❤️🎲
