Another all-request episode kicks off in the Gaming Hut as Patreon backer Gene Ha asks what F20 evil deities get out of all the dungeons they create and manage.

In the Cartography Hut we look into trap streets and parch marks, at the behest of backer Jurie Hornemann.

Ask Ken and Robin gives backer Jacques de Villiers the chance to ask Robin about GMless Hillfolk.

Finally in Ken’s Time Machine, backer Michael Maneval asks Ken to describe the reasons behind his constant efforts to keep musical instrument inventor Adolphe Sax from a premature final rest.

  1. A topid which I don’t recall the Consulting Occultist having tackled; the Takenouchi Documents.

  2. I think you forgot one faction who are trying to get rid of Sax. Apparently, there are some jazz fans so trad that they think that saxophones spoiled it, and it’s not proper jazz without a clarinet.

  3. Jake S says:

    In the vein of “Dungeons as Vectors for Evil”, I kept waiting for one of you to suggest that the treasure within the dungeon was the vector, not the monsters. Why does evil build dungeons? So stupid adventurers will take the treasure back to the surface–treasure that helps spread greed and division as people try to acquire it, keep it, and so on.

    Treasure from dungeons helps spread the taint of evil to the surface. And adventurers are helping.
