Tomb of Horrors Episode #7, session 3 part 1

The party finds the tomb of Acererak and has to battle the evil lich-lord himself. It’s a perilous fight in which some of the heroes end up making death saves and realize that death is a real possibility when fighting the master of the Tomb of Horrors.

Tomb of Horrors Episode #8, session 3 part 2

The party takes inventory of the loot they acquired in the tomb of the false Acererak. They are then stumped by a magic door that can only be opened by casting three rituals in a specific order. After solving that puzzle, they find themselves in a room with three large vats.

Tomb of Horrors Episode #9, session 4 part 1

The party searches the room with the vats only to discover that one contains deadly oozes hiding within it. The oozes prove to be more difficult to defeat then first expected as they divide and multiply when they get hit. Quick thinking sends one of the monsters to the feywild at a critical moment saving the party from certain doom.

Tomb of Horrors Episode #10, session 4 part 2

The party continues deeper into the dungeon. They face hazardous spiked-filled pits, doors that are trapped to shoot arrows and finally a room filled with strange mold. Afterwards the PCs find themselves at literal cross-roads when they have to decide if they want to rest in the bowels of the tomb or back-track before resting.

Or will they succumb to the dangers of the Tomb of Horrors as so many adventurers have before them? Listen and find out.

So much to listen to! I’ve only had time to get through a few of these. It’s nice audio to have in queue when I’m doing chores (wireless headphones ftw!). As a fairly new DM, I especially find it useful to be exposed to as many other DMs and players as possible, since everyone has a little bit different style, and we can all learn from each other.

Just love the series and the whole group!

Is it me or one of the players has the same voice as Will Wheaton ? (how does 19 work for ya?!)

Can’t wait to try my dm’ing the Super Adventure Tomb of Horrors for my group.
