Acquisitions Incorporated: The Series - Episode 4

You can watch this episode on youtube here.

This week we start to creep around the fortress.

I love the way this show looks - the graphics, the camera quality, everything. They even busted out an initiative graphic this week!

Last Time: The group is trying to bust into a dwarven vault to steal a piece of the rod of seven parts. Jim and Binwin are hidden in a treasure box, being delivered to the vault by Omin and Viari.

The Party

(Jerry) Omin Dran - Half-Elf Cleric
(Mike) Jim Darkmagic - Human Wizard
(Scott) Binwin Bronzebottom - Dwarf Fighter/Barbarian
(Patrick) Viari - Human Rogue 

The code word to pop out of the box is "Whippoorwill." The word was uttered last time, but cooler heads prevail and the heroes remain in the box.

It turns out there's a dwarf guard named Whippoorwill that is causing some code-word malfunctions.

The group needs to get a key off of a drunk guy named Carrington. As soon as they are alone with him, Binwin punches Carrington the drunk dude for 6 points. Binwin is a tavern brawler so he grapples the guy.

Jim casts suggestion and forces the guy to join the team.

The group needs his key. He says he left it in the tavern. Carrington is interested in joining "Apparitions Inebriated."

Viari goes off alone with Carrington and they go to the tavern. Viari spots two human ladies in leather armor, one of which has a winged snake. The other has a wand in a sheath. The group wonders if that is a piece of the rod.

The women are playing cards with two dwarves. Carrington blurts out that they're looking for a key.

Viari learns that they are with the Black Network, part of the Zhentarim. They head to Carrington's room. On the way, they pass three male Zhents.

Viari keeps trying to intimidate Carrington to help find the key and failing on his rolls. Viari decides to switch it up. He attempts to seduce him! He rolls a 23!

Carrington thinks he left the key under a mug in the tavern. Viari realizes that the Zhents stole it.

He creeps up on them in the hallway. The group warns him that this will be his only chance to pilfer the key from these evil guys...

Good show! It goes so quick. I can't wait to see what happens from here.

I love the way one minute DMChris is talking over the two chuckle heads on his left to get some RP in, nut then drops things, like Whippoorwill in the last episode, that totally crack the m all up!

jerry247: I agree! There's good chemistry in this group. IMO they are very funny people.
