Orc with a Green Thumb or Now That You Seen our Stuff Let's Go Venturing!

Sadly the Audio is lost, I was able to recover the .au files but in the end they just register as having no audio

This episode begins with the RODs meeting an Orc that was trapped in the vines and subdued until Daryl burned everything and everyone in front of him. The question the Orc why he is out here, and that answer resides in the quest to find the best herbs to start his own glow-weed farm and heard of tales how the Elvish forest holds many variety of plants. With discovering the profession of Herbalist the group asks if the Orc has seen any Black Lotus around. The Orc replies that his name is SweetChuck and that he has not.

The group decide to journey this forest together where they encounter some brown bears. Dranas thinking of how he hasnt really cooked any fresh new meats in some time decides bear meat will be on the menu. Stug rushes towards him as he is never shy of a good fight. When they turn the tree line they discover there is bears and then they also have a Momma Bear, Dire, with them. The two start to fight nature and defeat the bears except for one. Stug stands before Dranas to defend the knocked out Dire Mother Bear. Showing his interest for a pet.

Stug and their new friend SweetChuck attempt to tame the bear in which they use a charm spell to subdue to Dire Mother Bear that Stug has decided to name her Ursa. With this going on Dranas decides to Chop up the other bears for meat with new Black Obsidian Blade that he pulled out of the chest of a dead Drow Elf in nhis GF's new lair. Volkorn and Daryl just drink the time away. Dranas realizing there is too much for him to carry insists that they take the meat to the bar.

They pull out the little door and enlarge it to knock upon it and open the portal to their under ground headquarters in Celest. Everyone assists in carrying the bloody carves carcus of the bears to the freezing while giving a rather quick tour of the underside to SweetChuck where Volkorn informs him is below his bar. After getting the meat into the freezer the group decides to check out the bar scene and Dranas to check on his kitchen staff.

The staff is struggling to keep up and the kitchen is a bit of a mess. Though that is understandable to Dranas once he finds out the Uhh! is playing tonight! Dranas decides to help the kitchen catch up, clean up, and they show Brittany how to cook the bear meat. Volkorn tries to collect funds a little early on Quark but is reminded its not time but is offered to join their gambling session and also offers SweetChuck a sample of their new Snuff product.

When the Band is done and the party starts to wind down SweetChuck wrangles up a couple ladies and even passes one off to Dranas. Dranas decides to try the Snuff and get a quick large rush but the crash made him very weak and fatigued. As if his body is just not meant for it or its only for a special occasion. The group continue to party through out the night and Dranas takes a deep slumber.

In the morning the group continues to head out north where they meat a rather large lake. Stug dives in without hesitation. Battles off the Eels and notices a cave at the bottom where after he swims through notices there is an air pocket that holds the lake above. He informs the group of what he sees and they take action to head down. Making their way fighting off small pests they get to a large boat attached to a rope that descends into the depths.

Why Don't The Dwarfs Care Or What? That's Not Black Lotus!

Here we start the day off in the Mages Mansion where Dranas starts to cook breakfast for all. Daryl lays about on the couch contemplating his meeting with Gary and Larry and every so often ganders at Dranas rumbling about in the kitchen. Once food is ready and others wake up and gather to eat Daryl starts to talk about what he wants to do for the day. Find this Black Lotus. Dranas just talks about his gear that he is having made. Stug is just there ready for adventure.

After a lighthearted meal the RoDs decide it is time to claim what they have been seeking Black Lotus. In the attempt to retrieve what lays in Mount Tomo before the goblins of Kobm that are there now excavating. They Teleport randomly again, get their barrings and decide to head towards the northern region. Upon so they notice a figure stuck in vines with a green mist emanating from it. There they see an Orc unconscious and trapped within. Dranas ventures head first unaffected by this mist. As Daryl decides its his time to act does what comes natural. Burn everything in front of him. This would include the trapped unconscious Orc. After being attacked the Orc regains consciousness and reacts to the situation with more fire. The group introduce themselves and meet a new traveler Sweet Chuck.

This is a shorter game as we got to know our new player and had him roll a char and somewhat caught him up to speed.

The Journey of RODs continues as the group finished off the Spider Cave and Dranas finds a Spider womans treasure chest the group decide its time to head back to Tor'ar because Stug has to check in for his job. Daryl decides to teleport everyone near the groups, besides Dranas who is fill with jealousy and anger, Chateau Le Pu. He has the brilliant idea of making their bathroom stall into the Mages Mansion doorway. After mucnh talk the group decides this is not the best idea but end up by the dumpster behind the restaurant where they talk about killing people to look up and notice the cooks are outside smoking in ear shot. Dranas at this point has left to try and gain access to the Archives of Nethys.

The group eventually meet Chef Charle and end up discussing him training their paladin how to cook more like a professional cook. He agrees if the money is right and to bring his friend along and they can start whenever.

At the Archives of Nethys Dranas is met with an avid toy collector and comes to find out what the Archives is really all about. Gathering knowledge and sharing it with with like minded people. Though in order to do so you must have 3 people that vouched for you as well as bringing in an item not seen before or knowledge that the Archives lack. He talks with him about his toys and Stug since he has the champions on display as well. He is able to bribe his way past the 3 people and brings the globe of the ancient world to the Archives. From curiosity the man asks where he found said item, which Dranas shows him his map. After jotting some things down Dranas is granted access to the Archives where he starts to study the wonders of the world. And maybe figure out more about Black Lotus.

Stug and Volkorn make their way to the castle to only be shunned off and mocked thinking they could just enter the caster because Stug has a job with the Army of Tor'ar. They make their way to the Army Camp where Stug is granted access but Volkorn is not because he is not in the army. After trying to persuade the guard he is still denied being told his only way in is to join the services. Stug meets with General CloudKicker who talks to him about his men and seems a little reluctant to even have stug in his army. He informs Stug of his people and when they should be expected on when to arrive. He farts as he notices the General having battle formations on a table map.
