Episode 102 - Gasten's Gastronomic Adventure

Image
The heroes have begun to explore the outside world, starting with the ocean, I guess. And...some stuff happens. It all seems like it's going nowhere in particular, but I promise it is, mostly.

TFTGGW Soundtrack: The Necrosorb

We're back to music this week, with the synth-heavy combat music from the fight against the Necrosorb!

TFTGGW Soundtrack: Zartok Raps

Here's the last of the three songs from Episode 100! This one has Zartok summarizing everything from him waking up to the party meeting Coral Petrichor. It's a good thing Josh and listener Brandon know a bit about hip hop, because Mike was pretty useless here.  Find us on Facebook , Instagram , and Twitter , and Discord, and let us know what you think!  Check out this episode of Tales from the Glass-Guarded World!

TFTGGW Soundtrack: Aster Rocks

Here's the second of the three songs from Episode 100! This one has Aster explaining events up until Zartok enters the story. Chris and Mike worked really hard on this one. It's too long, but Aster has a lot of story to summarize! The lyrics for this one were written by listener Ben!

TFTGGW Soundtrack: Tara's Lecture

Here's the first of the three songs from Episode 100! This one has Tara explaining events up until Aster enters the story.

Episode 100 - A Musical Recap Because We Were Too Stupid To Say No

Image
We made it to episode 100! Listener Big Poppa G suggested that we do a musical recap of the story so far for Episode 100. We were too stupid to say no, so here you go.  It's a regular episode for 35 minutes, and then the musical section begins. We had to assemble this with everyone being in different locations, and it wasn't easy. Not all of us are musically inclined, either. Cut us some slack! Thanks to Brandon W. for the lyrics for Tara's and Zartok's songs, and thanks to Ben C. for the lyrics to Aster's song.  Now let us never, ever speak of doing a musical again. NEVER.  Here's the map of Jeberorb discussed in today's episode, made beautiful by Shaun from the House of Bob podcast : And the solar system diagram: Our 5E Spelljammer combat rules are available!

TFTGGW Soundtrack: Aster Rejoins the Fight

We're back to music this week, and sadly, you have to listen to Mike try to play guitar. It is really not his instrument. It's the music from Episode 94, when Aster returns from World 83 to join the fight against the frost giant and magical polar bear! Next week is Episode 100! It has some really big surprises in it! We worked really hard on it, with help from some listeners on our Discord server. Our 5E Spelljammer rules are available!
