Aw, dem kids are cute.  Dead, but cute.  Our group of goofs take the kids on a field trip and traverse into the depths of the Death House, discovering that the basement has a similar feel to the top floors of the house: it hurts.  Can our heroes (?) make it out alive?  Or is this the unwarranted dark D&D sequel to the movie "Monster House?"  Remember that movie?  That was a thing.  Also, I don't even think that comparison makes sense.  Meh.  Remember to tune back in on May 15th for episode 07.  Enjoy!

Feel free to drop us a review on iTunes and cast Message to us over social media.  It's only a cantrip.  We'd love to hear from you!

Alright, where were we?  Creepy house. Kent went through some hard times.  He's sleepy sleepy.  Punched the new party member...right.  Laying some dead kids to rest.  This environment is euphoric, isn't it?  Kind, gentle, comfy, cozy.  Ahhhh.  Vacation spot 5/5, would rent again.  Hehe, Rent...you'll see.  Remember to tune back in on May 1st for episode 06.  Enjoy!

Kent's not feeling too hot.  After going through that ordeal, who can blame him?  Nonetheless, our heroes...are they heroes?  They haven't really done much heroism yet...Arcene and her group of people carry on through the house, where they cross paths with a newcomer.  How am I DMing this group of misfits?  Now I know how Adam Notmylastname feels.  Remember to tune back in on April 17th for episode 05.  Enjoy!

Kent finally got his wish.  Ok, maybe not his wish, but his anticipation and anxiety led him to the third floor, where the party immediately found themselves in the worst possible situation: surrounded by dust!  Oh, and there is something trying to kill them.  That, too.  Episode 04 will be out on April 3rd.  Enjoy!

Here's a quick episode as a thank you to our early listeners.  We will be having a giveaway for a licensed D&D 5e book of your choice.  This ranges from the PHB, MM, and DMG, as well as modules like "Curse of Strahd" and "Hoard of the Dragon Queen."  This way, you don't have to worry about already having the book.  Unless...you have them all.  Good job, hypothetical person!

Make sure to tweet out using the hashtag #TILaunchParty to be entered into the giveaway!  This closes EOD April 13, 2017.  If you have any questions, reach out to us on social media.

Oh, and if you're enjoying the show, make sure to let us know!  iTunes reviews are HUGE helps, but even a stop by on Twitter to go "hey, loved that sh*t.  Kent for life!" would be a day brightener for all of us.

Thanks again, see you on March 20th for the third episode of "House of Spoops."

We rejoin the party as they explore the interior of the Death House.  One thing is for certain: the players are getting restless.  Things are tense: Nick is flipping out, Bucky and Drew are touching literally everything, and Josh is enjoying putting everyone through the anxiety ringer.  Episode 03 will be out on March 20th.  Enjoy!

Feb 1, 2017

Due to the extremely positive feedback we received over at "The Once and Future Nerd," we decided to release our first episode early on our own channel!  March 6th, our original release date, will now be the release of our second episode.  If you are new to the podcast: welcome!  If you are coming from "TOAFN," this may sound a bit familiar, but you'll now get new content two weeks earlier than intended.  Enjoy!
