They're back! The folks at Penny Arcade and PvP sit down once again with Wizards of the Coast for a session of 4th Edition D&D. This time, they've hired a new member for their party—Wil Wheaton!

The Group

  • Mike Krahulik (Gabe from Penny Arcade): Jim Darkmagic of the New Hampshire Darkmagics
  • Jerry Holkins (Tycho from Penny Arcade): Omin Dran, CEO of Acquisitions Incorporated
  • Scott Kurtz (from PvP): Binwin Bronzebottom
  • Wil Wheaton : "Al"
  • Chris Perkins (R&D): Dungeon Master

Warning: This podcast contains strong language.

In this episode, the action continues as a vicious fight rolls on. When in doubt, heal Jim—at least, so says Jim Darkmagic. But what about the rest of the wounded, dazed, and poisoned party? They are scared… and quiet.

But soon enough, Acquisitions Inc. is out of minions, leaving them with a barbarian to destroy. First, an Oath of Enmity is given… in eladrin. And from there, the party debates if the following statement is true or false: the DM is always on your side.

Oath of Enmity
Avenger Feature
You focus your wrath on a single foe, giving your attacks against it extraordinary accuracy.
Encounter (Special) Divine
Minor Action Close burst 10
Target: One enemy you can see in burst
Effect: When you make a melee attack against the target and the target is the only enemy adjacent to you, you make two attack rolls and use either result. This effect lasts until the end of the encounter or until the target drops to 0 hit points, at which point you regain the use of this power.
If another effect lets you roll twice and use the higher result when making an attack roll, this power has no effect on that attack. If an effect forces you to roll twice and use the lower result when making an attack roll, this power has no effect on that attack either.
If an effect lets you reroll an attack roll and you rolled twice because of this power, you reroll both dice.
