Wayward Quest: Pathfinder Gameplay Podcast

Pathfinder RPG General Discussion

I'm not sure if this is the correct place to post it, but I wanted to share my new pathfinder podcast. We are looking to run two episodes a week, dropping on tuesdays.

Wayward Quest is weekly Dungeons and Dragons (specifically Pathfinder) podcast starring Clayton Modu (Rory), Philip Falup (Sean), Percival Dreamweaver (Sabrina), Asharok (Cullen), and Turnip Therutabega (Stephan).

Our group has been playing together for 2 years now, with our DM (Mike) having over 15 years of experience with various roleplaying games. Our new adventure is taking us across the length and breadth of Varisia! With hidden goals, death awaiting around every corner, and secret kittens, we hope you enjoy our quest!

In this, our First Episode, our team meets for the very first time, learns some life lessions about secret missions, and has dinner with a scary Chelaxian lady!

Wayward Quest Episode 5.1- If A Druid Dies In The Woods

Passing through the strangest Grow-Op the party has ever seen, they come face to face with the dark master of this underground fortress. Will they parley, or immediately go to violence? This Week, on Wayward Quest!

https://waywardquest.podbean.com/e/wayward-quest-episode-51-if-a-druid-dies -in-the-woodsmp3/

I'll start this when I'm caught up on the Podcast I'm on now!! So inspiring, I'd love to be a part of one someday.

Thanks for the interest Jack! It's been a lot of fun so far, but a lot of work as well. Editing takes me about 4-6 hours per episode, but just getting it out there is totally worth it!

Is this an AP play through or home brew within Golarion?

It's homebrew, pulling from some classic adventures that have been updated as well as some pathfinder adventures.

They're based out of Magnimar right now, working for Venture-Captain Sheila Heidmarch.

Cool, I've book marked it for a listen so I'll hit you up on twitter in a few days with my opinion in case you're interested.

Always looking for feedback Doc. I'll be the first to admit that I'm just picking up the audio editing as I go, but I'm also interested in hearing what people think are the ups and downs of my adventures.

Well I promised you some feedback and after listening to Episode One. I'm sorry to say I won't be joining you and your friends for the rest of the pod.

I wish you all the best with it and your DM is doing a superb job, but I found two problems. Firstly the DM and one or two of the players have perfect audio while Asharok was to me almost entirely inaudible every time he spoke. I have a hearing issue so that may be me but it does make hard to follow.

Secondly and I'll make this as polite as I can as this is your friend, I really felt the urge to mute Percy almost from the off and it continued through the episode.

I hope you don't take offence at this as it's purely my opinion and others may well have a far different listening experience to me. I apologize if I have upset you in any way with my candor but I cannot in good conscience tell you a lie either.

Well Doc, even though you won't be joining us, thank you for your feed back.

I appreciate that Asharok is a bit difficult to hear in the first one. I've had to tweak the audio on quite a bit. He's naturally very quiet, and we've been working with that, and I believe that issue has gotten a lot better in our following episodes.

I'm sorry that Percival rubbed you the wrong way, but not every character resonates with every listener. I certainly wouldn't take offence to your candor, and perhaps one day I'll be producing another podcast with an adventuring team you enjoy more.

Wayward Quest Episode 5.2- Slip Of The Tongue

Time to chop down that evil tree, and chock up one more in the W column. What's this? Kobold ambush? How could they possibly know? Well, looks like we're finding another way out. This Week, On Wayward Quest!

https://waywardquest.podbean.com/e/wayward-quest-episode-62-kobolds-to-the- slaughter/

Wayward Quest Episode 7.1 - The Journey to Riddleport

http://waywardquest.podbean.com/e/wayward-quest-episode-82-finding-the-pira tes-cove/

Wayward Quest Episode 9.1 - Petty Bureaucracy

With the boss away, the party will play! But first, it's road trip time. Becoming deputy tax collectors, a quick trip to Honest Ed's Wagon Emporium, and a two week road trip to the totally not cursed town of Ravensmoor are what awaits the party This Week, On Wayward Quest!

http://waywardquest.podbean.com/e/wayward-quest-episode-91-petty-bureaucrac y/

Wayward Quest Episode 9.2 - Welcome to Ravenmoor

After only attempting to murder a small childs pet, the party arrives in swampsville, population: you. Actually, now that they're here, Ravenmoor doesn't seem so bad. Some expected racism, but we'll push through that because they're getting ready for the monthly festival! That should be fun, This Week, On Wayward Quest!

https://waywardquest.podbean.com/e/wayward-quest-episode-92-welcome-to-rave nmoor/

Wayward Quest Episode 10.1- Fine Country Hospitality

So far Ravenmoor's been a pretty chill place! Some fire jumping, some target throwing, and now the opportunity to wrassle a greased pig. What's not to love in this provincial town? Oh, the pig has mutated, and the town was long ago terribly cursed. Looks like Percy called it, This Week, On Wayward Quest!

https://waywardquest.podbean.com/e/wayward-quest-episode-101-fine-country-h ospitality/

Wayward Quest Episode 10.2 - The Oldest Trick In The Book

With the Festival winding down, the newly crowned Chell attempts to get at least one of these brave adventurers to leave a little something of themselves in Ravenmoor.

https://waywardquest.podbean.com/e/wayward-quest-episode-102-the-oldest-tri ck-in-the-book/

So, I've been lax with posting these episode descriptions, but I'll leave off the links, and just share the blurbs!

Wayward Quest Episode 11.1 - It’s Not Paranoia If They Are Trying To Kill You

Following Turnips tracks, the party quickly finds him naked, bound, and doing the best scarecrow impression they've ever seen. Now, to figure out what sort of evil plot required a plump Turnip sacrifice... and why in the world would the cultists just give him back? This Week, On Wayward Quest!

Wayward Quest Episode 11.2 - Coming Home To Roost

With only a short hour to go before daybreak, the party strikes deep into the insect filled corn maze. Cultist disguises intact, they successfully fool the mindless watchers, only to come face to face with the cult leader! Surprise surprise, it was the Mayor the whole time! Now, they just need to deal with him, and the wonderful gift he has waiting inside of him, This Week, On Wayward Quest!

Wayward Quest Episode 12.1 - Kill The Wizard, Become The Wizard

The Town of Ravenmoor, now home to a horrific mosquito abomination, is miles beind them. The party decides how to best fill out their reports, and notices a help wanted sign in the town of Wolf's Ear. Apparently some Wizard named Bargle is wanted dead or alive for killing a priestess of Erastil. How hard could that be? This Week, On Wayward Quest!

Wayward Quest Episode 12.2 - Fairy Tales Redux

The search for the wizard Bargle has hit a roadblock: A magic bed that induces slumber. Percy is immune, but Asharok has fallen prey to the magically comfortable trap. To awaken him, the party will have to dig deep into their knowledge of fantasy tropes, This Week, On Wayward Quest!

Wayward Quest Episode 13.1 - Shrek Gambit

Heading down to the second basement, the party discovers a deadly spike trap. Clearly the only way through is to press their soft meaty bodies against it. On the other side, they find a unionized Ogre! Maybe this time the 'Shift Change' gambit will be effective? This Week, On Wayward Quest!

Wayward Quest Episode 13.2 - If Only We Kept A Map

A quick escape through the teleporter has saved the party from yellow oozes, but what fresh horrors have they found in this new room? Guess we're taken a hard swerve into a sci-fi adventure, This Week, On Wayward Quest!

Wayward Quest Episode 14.1 - Fireball Is One Heck Of A Spell

With the portal sealed against living matter, the party must now find a way to deal with the eggs that have been deposited on this side. Luckily they have a Bag of Devouring, which will consume all that is put inside it.... Or do they? Assumptions are what make a mess for Clayton, and the party learns that Asharok can just ignore spells, This Week, On Wayward Quest!

Wayward Quest Episode 14.2 - Finally Got That Squared Away

Back down into the Lair of the Wizard Bargle, this time control rod in hand, the party does their best to shut down the portal to another realm, hopefully without accidentally opening the portal to living things in the process.... Well, it was a nice thought. Can the party push the 4 armed ravious beast back, or is this finally the episode in which Turnip dies? This Week, On Wayward Quest!

Wayward Quest Episode 15.1 - I Guess We’re Real Pathfinders Now

With the team back in Magnimar, the party spends some time putting Turnip to good use, crafting up some new magical items. Venture Captain Heidmarch finally decides to leave the Varisian Lodge in their "Capable" hands, promoting them to fully fledged members of the Pathfinder Society. Drunk with newfound power and responsibility, Turnip and Clayton make a mad dash for the Lodge's library, and Philip and Percy go off for a dinner date, This Week, On Wayward Quest!

Wayward Quest Episode 15.2 - Goblin Thieves Part 2, Electric Boogaloo

Percy and Philip's romantic dinner has been ruined by someone spying on them. A crude drawing in crayon leaves the only possible culprit clear in the parties mind, the Goblin Rogue, Alkie. Mindful of what happened the last time she was around, Percy rushes home to check on his beloved cat, Torte. Hopefully nothing bad happens to a pet, This Week, On Wayward Quest!

Wayward Quest Episode 16.1 - Philip, Goblin Queen?

With the Goblin lair identified, the party decends into the deep, encountering all matter of old and forgotten Thassilonian relics. To their surprise, the Goblins just want to talk! In fact, the arrival of Philip has been predicted, and they want to make him their new.... Queen? Some quick thinking by Asharok gets the party completely divided, This Week, On Wayward Quest!

Wayward Quest Episode 16.2 - No Means No

Alkie the Goblin declares her intention to make a new race of fire imbued goblins with Philip's assistance. There's only one problem: Phil's already in a committed relationship. With the rest of the party elsewhere, Asharok and Philip are possibly in a bit of a sticky spot, this Week, on Wayward Quest.

Wayward Quest Episode 17.1 - Randomly Generated Plot Hooks

With the Goblin problem solved, the Party has no clear call to action. Guess that means rumors and quests generated by cloaked strangers in dark rooms! The coolest seems to be a magic pool that regrows body parts, so off to the Sczarni for more information, This Week, On Wayward Quest!

Wayward Quest Episode 17.2- Norock’s Fall, Everyone Dies?

With only Clayton refusing to imbibe, the party is high as a kite. It's like herding cats for our grumpy gunslinger, but he eventually gets everyone safely back to the lodge. After sobering up, the party uses their newfound information to plan a journey to Viperwall castle, taking a couple of detours into the towns of Nybor and Galduria. They also meet a new friend! The Gnome Norock, who posseses a alchemical flying machine! Hopefully this won't be like the last time he went on a trip, This Week, On Wayward Quest!

Wayward Quest Episode 18.1 - Ember Island Adventures

Turns out that falling out of the sky only kills you if there is a hard impact at the end of it. Norock's disappointment at having to use magic instead of the power of alchemy is too bad for him, but the party is happy to survive. Now in the middle of Ember Lake, they've got a few days to explore the island. That creepy wizard tower can't be too evil, can it? Find out This Week, on Wayward Quest!

Wayward Quest Episode 18.2 - Owlbears on Command

Weird mounds on the ground, surrounding a Hell-Stone tower. Looks like we've got a bunch of tiny dungeons to clear! We're not actually that mean, so only a few mounds are open. The Poison tunnel of white stone is going to be a tricky one, especially as the party loses their last grappling hook. With a out of game request for more Owlbear content, the party is in for a treat, This Week, on Wayward Quest!

Wayward Quest Episode 19.1 - Party Go Down The Hole

The party has survived the Red-Tribe Goblin's brutal assult, and return to the safety of Norock's Blimp. Norock shows off his command of small woodland creatures, and the team strikes out to investigate the secret hole behind the goblins throne. Turnip almost drowns finding a secret path, and the party learns the name of the Wizard behind the Tower: Crane. The party will have to face his mighty butler, This Week, On Wayward Quest!

Wayward Quest Episode 19.2 - Pool Party

The Flesh Golem defeated, Asharok takes the lead in scouting out the side path that he had discovered while saving Turnip. At the end of the stream, a 20 ft diameter pool, and a 10 armed statue await. It's probably a trap, but that's never stopped our Party before! Find out exactly how badly this is going to bite them, This Week, On Wayward Quest!

Wayward Quest Episode 20.1 - Madhouse Of Fun

The Party descends further into the Tower of Crane with their cunning use of the "Run really fast through the room" technique. Will it continue to work? Only time will tell. Today's gauntlet begins with a simple mirrored hallway... but can it be that simple? Find out This Week, On Wayward Quest!

Wayward Quest Episode 20.2 - Alchemist’s Fire To Save The Day
With all of their damage dealers down, the party is in very desperate straights. The only thing that can save them is the heavy use of Hero Points, to double up their actions, and save their bacon. Will it be enough? Should they have killed the Indigo Wizard? Find out This Week, On Wayward Quest!

Wayward Quest Episode 21.1 - Mail Call!

Safely back in Magnimar, Gnomish contraptions well behind them, the Party takes a moment to enjoy their newfound powers at level 5. With nothing immediately pressing, they check through their waiting mail, and find out that their boss, Sheila Heidmarch, has arranged for them to have a little bit more home defense, in the form of a trio of protective golems. It's time to unpack some heavy freight, This Week, On Wayward Quest!

Wayward Quest Episode 21.2 - What Lovely Skin You Have

The malfunctioning golems could have only come from one place, the Magnimarian Golemworks. Chrysalis Black, artificer extraordinaire, is the name on the contract, so the party hangs out in his office. Although Clayton wants to arrest him immediately, they don't actually have any evidence of any wrongdoing, so it's lovely polite discussion time, This Week, On Wayward Quest!

Wayward Quest Episode 22.1 - Lets Keep All The Creepy Dolls… What Could Go Wrong?

Oh no! That sweet old lady bamboozled the party about Chrysalis Black selling his doll shop. Guess there is nothing else to do but... Kill Her? With Asharok leading the way, a quick smashing down of the front door turns a bit more complicated, especially with the new doll repositories the party keeps finding. What could possibly be in the cellar? Find out This Week, On Wayward Quest!

Wayward Quest Episode 22.2 - Mommy Issues
The creepiest door the party has ever seen gives way under the strikes of the trusty buddy to reveal: The creepiest room the party has ever seen. The secret workshop of Chrysalis Black is full of evil beakers, strange glass tubes filled with people, and hundreds of thousands of broken dolls scattered across the floor. Before the party can hope to deal with the evil wizard, they'll have to cross the floor, This Week, On Wayward Quest!

Wayward Quest Episode 23.1 - Crafting Interlude

And with that, the Aspis Consortium's agent inside the Golemworks is defeated. The only thing left for the party to do? Spend all of that money! Turnip is going to take his sweet time crafting up some new magic weapons and armor for the group, as well as delve a bit deeper into his backstory. It's a rules heavy episode, This Week, On Wayward Quest!

As a sidenote, the alternate crafting rules out of Pathfinder Unchained are super funny to use. You do end up getting a bit less value on the pure GP side, but the little flaws and perks are great for feeling more attached to your items.
