A Sort of Homecoming

The Gods Must Be Crazy

Podcast Release Notes

From Icosahedrophilia: “Our heroes conclude their business in Maelbrathyr and make ready to sail for Erelhei-Cinlu, intending to see Koralina’a safely home. The crew welcomes a new addition, the half-dwarven (mul) runepriest Bost, and learns that dead men do tell tales.” The Broken Promise finally arrives in Erelhei-Cinlu so that our heroes can fulfill their vow to deliver Koralina’a safely to her matron mother’s manse. Upon so doing, the crew learns of some strange happenings at the city’s central temple, the Fane of Lolth.
