Episode 028: Phase Drake and Regicide

WARNING: This podcast is intended for a mature audience

Rain falls on a slick mountain road as four phase drakes circle our heroes. The King of Thunderblood has been slain. Everyone stands naked, and it seems like only a matter of time before someone glimpses a sight of another's "codpiece area." Will DM David make them roll for natural endowment? Will the wily Dar'Jjeeki find his way back to the table? Will the cursed dice return? And what causes fan-favorite Gub to disappear from our plane of existence? All these questions and more, in this MOMENTOUS episode of Crit Juice!

Episode 027: I'm Seeing Double! Four Ariences!

WARNING: This podcast is intended for a mature audience, and gets a bit crass.

So is Arience Arience? We may never know, but today we come face to face with an imposter as well as Handsome Gary's love for puns, MattB's 90s music references, and newcomer satyr, Noomi, makes a questionable stealth check! Will the party ever crit during combat again?

Episode 026: Y'all Like Desserts?!

It's not uncommon for things to get blurry when you're drunk, but for an entire tavern to turn into a gelatinous danger-room? That's something special. The Blacksmith of Imasskar has it out for Arience and crew as he trades a bottle of wine for sweet, sweet revenge!

Episode 025: Arience and His Sad Return Home

Just around the corner is the nation of Thunderblood: rich, luxurious, full of wealth. Home of Arience... right?
But why does no one recognize him? Could it be that the party has been travelling with a doppleganger all along? What's this mean for the Princess? Will special guest Amy Vorpahl piece the puzzle together before the adventurers, or will alcohol win yet again?

Episode 022: Crennen Wants to Swallow Us

The Blood Bog is a terrible place to be:
Ankle deep in sludge and liver-deep in booze, the party fights their way through creeping vines and crocodiles to get even DEEPER into the swamp. You'd think they liked it here... Will Brian's crit frenzy keep the party alive, or will MattB's drunken stubborness to heal make this their final residence?

Drinking the Pistil and Ticket to Rye from Magic Hat has worked wonders for Doc but has left Wolf shooting blanks. In this episode, the group continues to fight Tormad "The Hard to Pronounce." Will Gub have another name to tattoo on his arm, or will the masked Dragonborn get the best of him? And whatever happened to Dovana? Will Ryan Gaul be the end of our heroes? All this and more in this episode of CRIT JUICE!
