Something a bit different this time. Daniel recaps the session with voiceover, cutting in clips of the actual play, and commenting on particular mechanico-structural elements. Let us know what you think.

This ep is another example of a full mythic play-cycle: suffering in the world of humanity caused by evils within and/or without, leading to a journey to the underworld and mortal combat with its denizens, which are inimical to human interests and values, followed by the liberation of its secrets and wealth, with the protags returning to the world of humanity bearing sorrow, experience, boons, and, perhaps, an adumbration of the eschaton.
In other words, town problem to dungeon to town resolution.
This episode is also *heavily choreographed* in the fight(s). The game doesn't have to play out this way, but I think everyone was into it. I know I like an intense and gorily choreographed monster fight, and that's what you get.
