PAX Celebrity Game

Prisoners of Slaughterfast

At this year’s Penny Arcade Expo, the members of Acquisitions Incorporated reunited to help celebrate the release of the Dungeons & Dragon Fantasy Roleplaying Game Starter Set (the Red Box)… and, of course, to try and save their fallen companion.

After surviving the Keep on the Shadowfell, the heroes of Acquisitions Incorporated recruited a new intern, the eladrin avenger Aoefel. Together they traveled to the dwarven settlement of Hammerfast and made enemies of the evil Ambershard clan. During the assault on Ambershard Manor, Aeofel plunged into a pit of acid and died, much to his companions' chagrin.

Now Aeofel is dead... or is he? Acquisitions Inc. travels beyond the Twisting Halls to learn the truth and thwart the villains responsible for Aeofel's demise. A live D&D session with "Celebrity DM" Chris Perkins, and including Mike Krahulik, Jerry Holkins, Scott Kurtz, and Wil Wheaton.
