We were handed the Mordenkainen's Tome of Foes supplement to create a one shot for the Wizards of the Coast Podcasts of Foes event! Join us for an adventure following some high level tieflings and an eladrin dipping into some of the darker planes to prevent something awful. This episode was written/DMd by Bucky and features Drew, Josh, Morgan, and Nick as the players.
