Dungeons & Dragons - The Dice, Camera, Action Season 2 Index

This is a hub and episode guide for season 2 of the show Dice, Camera, Action. Legendary dungeon master Chris Perkins is running a group of delightful youtube personalities through Storm King's Thunder, an official 5th edition adventure.

What Did I Miss?

If you missed season one, the heroes had been sucked into an evil realm called Barovia. They escaped by trapping the lord of Barovia, Strahd, in an evil puppet.

Now they have returned to the Forgotten Realms only to find that giants are rampaging all over the place.

The Waffle Crew

I compiled everything we know about their backstories right here.

These heroes were on a quest for waffles when they got sucked into Barovia in season one. They fear vampires and love owlbears.

Diath: He is a tomb-raiding rogue. Here is his character sheet.
  • He was given a key ring from a mysterious person long ago. He eventually learned that one of the keys unlocks the Tome of Strahd.
  • In Barovia, Diath became a disembodied spirit and inhabited Paultin's body for a time.
  • Diath was once accidentally fed a potion of youth. Diath de-aged and is currently 18 years old.
  • Diath has the power to cast resurrection one time. He needs a diamond worth 1,000 gp to cast the spell.
  • He killed a little girl named Arabelle. She cursed him as she died.
  • Diath drank the ashes of Saint Markovia to cure himself of an undead curse. 
  • Everyone likes "Murderbot" aka Simon except for Diath.

  • An appreciative freed halfling slave gave Diath a stone of good luck she had keistered for 3 months.

  • Diath has a magic sword called Gutter. He can use it to summon Shemeshka the Marauder to ask her three questions.
  • Diath may be from the city of Sigil.
Evelyn: She is a paladin of Lathander, who is also known as The Morninglord. Her character sheet is here.
  • Her pet mouse, Juniper, is very well-fed.
  • Her axe, Lightfall, is double-bladed, has the symbol of Lathander on it and it is gold-colored. It has the powers of a mace of disruption. Lightfall was destroyed when it struck an adamantine heart.
  • In Barovia, her horse named Mourning Glory was undead, but in the Realms it is a gleaming bastion of goodness.
  • Sometimes Evelyn didn't pay attention in paladin school because she was drawing horses. She had a teacher who wore the Icon of Ravenkind
  • She once hugged Strix into consciousness.
  • She has a second special axe called "Treebane."
