Acquisitions Incorporated: The Series - Episode 7

Watch this episode on youtube here.

I still can't figure out how this will link to Force Grey.

The Party

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

Last Time: The adventurers stole a piece of the rod of seven parts but are stuck inside the dwarven fortress that houses the vault. A band of Zhentarim are suspected of having stolen a belt of giant strength from the dwarves, but the Zhentarim were saying that it was the heroes that did it. The adventurers were standing before the king when an NPC named Carrington pointed that one of the heroes is in disguise as his own sister. It looked like things were about to implode...

Viari tries to play it off like Carrington, the accuser, is drunk. He slaps Carrington a few times. Carrington turns around and tells the king that the heroes are impostors.

Omin casts command on Carrington. He commands him to apologize. Carrington fails his save and calls out, "I'm sorry!"

Omin gets in an argument with the Zhentarim, each accusing the other of theft.

Ironbeard, the dwarf they bribed, is up for looking in the box. The group is outraged.

The group decides to let the dwarves look in the box. Jim and Binwin are in there, but I think one of them is invisible. Ironbeard is going to examine

As Ironbeard gets close to Viari, Viari whispers, "We don't have it, but if things go bad here, you are going to die first." He rolls a 19 on the intimidation check.

Ironbeard looks in. He sees Jim Darkmagic curled up in there, glaring at him. I think Binwin's invisible, not sure.

Ironbeard looks in the box and says that the belt is not in there.

So who stole the belt of giant strength? The heroes wonder if maybe Portentia did. She's the one who sent them in here in the first place.

The dwarves consider searching the whole place. The Zhentarim offer to help search. Those dirty dogs.

Zardak Horn wants to put the heroes in the tavern while the dwarves search the complex.

The group likes this idea. They remember that Portentia told them that there is a secret exit somewhere in this place. The group doesn't know where it is, though.

I am a little confused where the heroes are located now. The players are talking openly and planning, but I can't tell where the characters are. I assume they are quietly talking in the hallway?

Scott and Mike really want to get their characters out of the box. Looks like we're going to sneak into the King's bedroom, as they assume that's where the secret tunnel is.

The group's plan is to leave the box containing the two heroes in their bedroom. Then they can pop out of the box and creep around, searching for the exit.

Right at the end, Scott jokingly tells a crew member to stop making noise. I couldn't hear anything.


(10:22) Ironbeard has no scruples
(29:42) Being extra safe


I kind of got lost mentally during this episode. I'm not sure who is where or what is going on. My initial thought about these D&D shows was that the concept wouldn't work because watching people play D&D is boring. This wasn't boring, but not much happened and I had a hard time paying attention.
