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.

Here we go, folks – the final episode in our second series of podcasts with Acquisitions Inc. How will it end? The necromancer has the party on the ropes… can they hold him off? Or will they simply surrender in ignominy?

  • Jim Darkmagic: back from the grave, but kicking ass… until he dies again!
  • Binwin: out of healing surges, and in definite need of an extended rest!
  • Omin: unable to roll higher than negative numbers!
  • Al: bloodied, taking necrotic damage, but still the only one who can go toe-to-toe with a necromancer!

We won't spoil the ending, but will say this isn't the end of the adventure… at least for those wishing to follow in the footsteps of Acquisitions Inc. Look for the podcast scenario to appear in a future issue of Dungeon Magazine!
