Thanks for listening, you lovely little cavolo! ❤️

Now highly educated in the various socio-political goings-on of the Northern human kingdom of Alpynridge, Arlen, Tal and Calgaar set off to foil the evil machinations of the usurping Aunty. But will our adventures get more than they bargained for in this episode of Guild of Adventurers?!

Thanks for listening, you lovely little cavolo! ❤️

We love a good cliff-hanger here at Hail and Well Met and so you were left with such last episode! Our heroes, exhausted from trekking and battling through the Alpynridge Mountains, now held at the point of sword by an eloquent and well accented man. Listen along to this episode to find out what happens next to Arlen, Calgaar, and Tal and their new acquaintances, learn about root vegetables, the inner workings of politics and governments in the world of Kalanthus, and what sound a guinea pig makes when you stuff it into a bloodied bear skin pouch!

No animals or cabbages were harmed during the making of this podcast!

Words I didn’t know when I was editing this podcast:

  • “seneschal”: a seneschal was a senior position filled by a court appointment within a royal, ducal, or noble household during the Middle Ages and early Modern period – historically a steward or majordomo of a medieval great house. No relation to “Zooey Deschanel” although we are still searching.
  • “onager” (weapon): was an imperial-era Roman, torsion powered, siege engine; in other words, a small catapult.

If there’s anything else that doesn’t make sense, or you too would like to discuss the merit of cabbages, please get in touch with us! On Discord, Reddit, Twitter, Facebook or via e-mail! We’d really love to hear from you. We really would. Seriously give us some feedback already. We’re so lonely. It would take like, a minute. C’mon.

Thanks to Seth Merlo for voicing Brannin Teine.

Special thanks to our wonderful and generous cabbage merchants: Gio; Andrew; Ryan – and everyone else. Without you, we would not have the ability to have created this podcast. Check out our Patreon page where you too can support us, allowing us to purchase cabbages and cabbage related accessories.

Hip hip hooray! Guild of Adventurers has turned one! That’s right, if you’re reading this, then you are a part of a project we thought would “just be a bit of fun” that has turned into something so much bigger! All thanks to you, our listeners! Thank you, so much!

This episode marks the commencement of our second story arc. We were briefly introduced to Brannin Teine, second cousin to Calgaar, in the last episode and now, we joined the Guild as they render assistance when called and start a long and epic journey, complete with travel scenes!

Thanks again to Rachel, voicing Illiana Alvingham and Seth Merlo voicing Brannin Teine.

While our adventurers go about their Guild duties, our ever valiant Lt Dan, Mercer, Cpl Ant Alvingham, and the fearless Cpt Grinfold continue on with their lives out of the spotlight… This bonus mini episode gives you a look into the goings-on of the guild and develops on some of the other subplots that have arisen in the first story arc.

Do you love the idea of fast travel in RPGs? Or maybe you want a quick story recap without listening back through 7 hours and 11 episodes of content… Well, then you’ve come to the right place – welcome to the recap episode of our first story arc.

This is aimed to get you up to speed with some of the items that have come up, that may be important in the next story arc, or simply represent an interesting or plot driving element.

With special guest Seth voicing Brannin Teine, please enjoy “The Story So Far (Story Arc 1)”.

Good things come to those who wait, and for our heroic adventurers Tal, Arlen, and Calgaar, they’ve waited a whole 10 episodes before getting the chance to level up and claim some tremendous loot – but things are never that quite that simple. While this audio drama is based on 5th Ed. D&D – we still enjoy the role play and story telling, and so, in this epic (over one hour!) episode of Guild of Adventurers, Tal achieve Level 3 Thief by some intense rooftop training with Lt Dan, Arlen beings to better understand the cycles of life and death with none-other than Rat Queen of the Dorestir Sewers – Setta Sim, and Calgaar delves into Cpt Grinfold’s past and learns a measure of the quality of patience and meets a creature he’s only dreamed of.

We are once again joined by guest voice Rachel, reprising her character of Illiana Alvingham, and we are joined as well by a new voice – Seth Merlo playing the character Brannin Teine (more on him in future episodes!).

Lastly, this episode is in-part dedicated to our loyal listener and ever faithful patron – Gio. His patronage has award him a recurring NPC character roughly based on himself, who you will meet in this, and future, episodes. Thank you for your support Gio!

Special thanks to our other patrons: Andrew W & newcomer Ryan M
