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.

What's the best kind of brand? Can the object of your enmity be a threshing machine? Does a grabbed dwarf get pulled along with his opponent, or does the dwarf get pulled away?

These questions answered—and more!—as the fight continues and our heroes take on a scythjaw. Against that steel trap, Binwin goes down… and learns what it means to make a death save. Will it be enough? Can the rest of Acquisitions Inc. free him in time?

We won't spoil the outcome… but we will say it is finger-pistol time when a natural 20 hits the table. With references to Seinfeld, Half-Life, and even Stand By Me, this is a double-length episode!

Just remember: No one likes a flaming dwarf… or do they?
