In episode 2, our heroes are still dragging their feet getting their gear together. Wolfman gives us a breakdown on game mechanics with regard to armor stacking, weapon qualities and traits. Encumbrance is also discussed. The heroes are taken to a secret location and debriefed by Thagus (a Dwarven leader in The Purple Hand thieves guild) with regard to a earlier underground battle. Wolfman gives the lads a homework assignment to write up their accounts of the battle; which can be found here. Extremely vague directions are given to the heroes on locating the unknown Ancient Dwarvish translator in the Grey Mountains. By the end of this episode our heroes make their way to the docks to board a river barge. They plan to find their way to the mountains in order to have the map (to the Emperial Stones) translated from Ancient Dwarvish. Other points of interest include:
- Always “dicker”
- Sigrich has a zombie helmet
- Aaron learns to never put cookies on the GM’s table
- Dora is reminded she bought a dog
- Theodora hopes the dog can help cook
