[mention]Alphastream[/mention] and [mention]shawnmerwin[/mention] together again, and regularly - AT LAST!

Seriously, I'm a huge fan of both of you guys, and this is truely my personal DM Advice dream team.

I don't post often on these creaky old forums, but I'll make an exception for this!

Teos, your folksy style, dedication to the game over the years, and accepting nature really appeals to me.
Shawn, your humble approach to sharing what you bring to adventure design is something I look forward to each week.

Seriously, I predict this combination will be in contention for an Ennie next time 'round.

BTW, The latest podcast inspired a very specific trap design:

Two Magic Mouths, Hiding behind a Recessed, but Functional, False Door (Locked):

One mouth triggers when any pressure (such as listening at door) is applied to the false door, mimicking two characters quietly chatting about guarding treasure.
The other mouth is the Alarm mouth, which screams when the false door is opened, exposing both mouths on a blank wall.

Thanks again guys. I might try to make the recording stream for this Duo! What time/place do you record?

Thanks Randy! Always great to hear from you! I love the magic mouth trap. Magic Mouth is one of those old school magical things that helped me fall in love with D&D in the first place, and I haven't given in enough love in return recently.
