The Story So Far:
The Hellknight Order of the Godclaw, lost during the Gap, held valuable technology within its mobile Citadel: war machines that were said to embody aspects of each of its patron deities. For centuries, the machines have been inactive and undisturbed, accessible only by those with the privilege to know of their existence: the upper echelons of the surviving Orders. A few days ago, though, the Citadel’s alarms were raised. Someone has found their way into the Citadel’s private demiplane, survived to trespass within… and stirred the machines to life. It is up to a strike team of Paralictors from the surviving Orders to find out who.
Dungeon Dive Bar is an actual play podcast running the Emerald Spire Superdungeon, where we entertain listeners with a good story, great roleplay, and a solid grasp of mechanics and lore.
